I’m Jessica, mom to three crazy (but very lovable) young boys, and a lazy greyhound. Life gets crazy and hectic at times, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’m very excited to share with you how I went from a stay at home mom to a work at home professional blogger and digital influencer. It’s given me the ability to be at home with my kids, while at the same time earning an income and some sweet perks for our family!
I started my blogging journey back in 2011 right after my second son was born. I had left my job as a pharmaceutical representative after the birth of my first son; and as a stay at home mom, I found myself longing for more of a connection to the outside world. Don’t get me wrong– I love my children, but I also love to write and connect with others. Blogging was the perfect solution for both of these needs. When I started this blog, I honestly had no idea it would still be around 6 years later!
When I first started out in the blogosphere, I wrote short snippets of my everyday life and running passions, but now I cover many different aspects of my life, and I get paid to do it! I still pinch myself when I get a paycheck for publishing a post! Since the blog has grown over time, I know do everything from travel posts to recipe creation.
I’ve learned a lot over the last six years of growing this blog and my social media platforms, and one of my passions is to share it with others in a similar situation. Maybe you want to quit your office job or want to work it part-time, or maybe you just want to get some great perks from writing about your hobbies or passions. There are really so many different ways you can go with a blog.
As a blogger, I have had wonderful opportunities that don’t just include monetary compensation, but travel, accommodations, dining out, sports-related gear, electronics and more. It’s allowed me to provide my family with experiences we might not be able to afford were it not for my blogging job, and I’d love to help you start your journey too!
