If you would have told me six months ago that I would jump into this blogging thing full force, I would have laughed! Seriously, I organize the chaos that surrounds raising 4 boys, a husband, 2 dogs, a rabbit and a 20 gallon fish tank. At that time, I still worked at a local boutique part time and J was working longer hours at his main office on the far end of town. I barely had time to keep up the house, where would I find the time to add blogging into my schedule?
Tara Carr dropped into the store a few times and hosted an informative night on the power of social media and talked to us about the new and upcoming Houston Blogger Babe chapter, I brought it up to a few friends and they were like “Mitzi, you need to do this! It’s so you, you need to set up a public Instagram page and share your million tips.” I thought they were crazy, but I created the public page and joined the blogger babe group. I took a leap out of my comfort zone and started a new journey that has been backed by not only my amazing tribe, but the all encompassing and empowering women of this blogger babe group. I never thought that I would have my own blog or IG following. Why am I writing this? Well because I know that I am not the only one who feels this way. This is my way of persuading you to take a leap, jump off of the cliff and just do it. I’m writing this because I, myself, have a few friends who are contemplating on starting a blog while trying to balance a family and work life as well. This is me telling you to do it! If it doesn’t pan out, well at least you can say that you tried (and quite franky, I believe that you will be immensely successful). Yes, girlfriend! I’m talking to you!
If you are just beginning and don’t really know where to start, join a blogger group. I can attest that the Houston Blogger Babe chapter is a great one! This group has been a wealth of information as well as empowering. Not to mention, some really great friendships have been formed within the group and for that I am grateful! If you are a local Houston area blogger on the fence about joining, DO IT! Just wait until you see my upcoming post on our latest Babechella event! It was AMAZING!!!
