After becoming a mom, what do women do? Most of them quit their day jobs to take care of their babies and in India, it’s a common thing to do.
India has advanced but when it comes to mothers, they are left to do the house chores, take care of the baby and that’s it.
I see so many women around in India who sit in large groups and discuss their issues with kids and other lifestyle problems. Why not use this talent of sharing and solving parenting problems for something better. Something that can change your life!
These are not random chants in the air, you can actually do so by creating your own blog. Become a Mommy Blogger, sounds great!
Yes, you won’t be the first one to do so, but you will surely be a different one. You’ll have your own stories and experiences to share. See, ‘mommy community’ is insanely huge, and that’s where you can have a large audience to share your real insights of being a mom. This is something you can invest your time into and be the most-talked-about mommy in the community.
For real inspiration, here is a list of 8 mommy bloggers and they are nailing it at their parenting and lifestyle blogs, better called, mom blogs.
