As a wife, mommy, and blogger the biggest thing I struggle with is focusing on my blog and taking care of my family and home. The balance is so hard! When I had the opportunity to review Jacinda Vandenberg’s eBook, Growing Your Blog While Managing Your Home – The Ultimate Guide for Christian Mommy Bloggers, I was thrilled! Anything to give me tips and advice on how to balance the two is worth it to me!
I love this quote from the eBook:
“We can be bodily present while our hearts and minds are far away due to the misuse of the Internet. I wonder how many individuals, families, and even whole generations will be destroyed by women who abandon their families this way.”
I have spent many months torn between wanting to keep up with the house, keep up with homeschool, and find the time to blog. I am a writer. I went to college specifically to become a writer. It’s a passion of mine. My blog is my creative outlet. At the same time, it costs me money to run and it takes a lot of time and energy.
I love how Jacinda first poses the question: To Blog or Not To Blog? If my husband is not supportive of my online time and I am not blogging for a purpose, there is no point. Fortunately, my husband is supportive of this little dream of mine and I have goals for this blog! I want to provide a community for like-minded mamas and I would like to be compensated financially for doing so. These are perfectly legitimate reasons to blog!
Through Growing Your Blog While Managing Your Home I gleaned some very important tips for saving time while running my home. Jacinda gives a long list of ways to save you time during your day. My favorite is to use your slow cooker! She also writes about how to manage your online time.
The next section is all about design and content. You can’t have a successful blog without top-notch content and a nice design. If you are just starting out as a blogger, this section is full of content you do not want to miss. You will learn how to make your blog pretty and reader-friendly!
In order to have a successful blog, you have to grow your blog audience. I plan on putting all of Jacinda’s tips for blog growth into action for Simple Living Mama.
My favorite section is the one on monetizing your blog. One of my goals for this year is to actually make more money from the blog than what I spend on it. Jacinda has earned a five-figure income from her blog, Growing Home, so I really trust her advice on this topic!
Everything you need to know to get started blogging and run a successful blog all while managing your home is included in this eBook. I absolutely love all of the advice and cannot wait to put it all into action and see how it pays off.
Are you ready to grow your blog and manage your home?
