I’ve never been big on making New Year’s resolutions. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever really made a resolution. Although a couple of years in my early twenties were a bit of a blur, so who knows. If I did, it most definitely wasn’t something grand; like, travel to a dream destination or to do something inspiring. It was probably something along the lines of spending less money clothes shopping. Which more than likely lasted until the end of January. Hey, a girl’s got to look good right?!
Anyway, this year I’ve decided to make a New Year’s resolution. As a busy Wife and Mom of two girls, I find it hard to find time for myself and the things I love doing. Writing is something that I have always loved to do and I’m having so much fun blogging, but finding time to be consistent with my blog has been challenging to say the least. So my resolution for 2016 is to really focus on KnowMom!.
When I first started blogging, I did it for fun. It was a way for my family and friends to keep up with our family and an outlet for me to keep my sanity. I didn’t expect my following to grow so quickly, to be approached by companies to review their products, or to have writers/bloggers ask to guest post on KnowMom!. I had no plan, no direction and really no specific niche.
I was recently in a meeting for KnowMom! and I realized that I need to figure out where I want to go and what I want to do ASAP. It’s scary to put yourself out there, not knowing how your words are going to be perceived. As my following grew, I started to second guess myself. Can I really do this, what if people don’t like me or don’t like what I have to say…?
At the end of the day I know that no matter how hard I try, I can’t please everyone. I write from my heart and I stand by my words. KnowMom! is a light-hearted, fun, real, humorous perspective on my life as a Mom. If you don’t like what I have to say, you don’t have to follow me. (Although I sure hope you continue to!) So no more second guessing myself! Or, at least I’m going to try really hard not to. I love blogging, I’m thankful for my followers and I’m having a lot of fun!
My goal for 2016 is to be more consistent with my blog posts and to share more videos and pictures. I’m excited to be introducing a new monthly blogger who has a slightly different niche. I’m also hoping to get to know my followers…that’s YOU! I love hearing from you whether it be a comment on a post, a picture or a post on my page. If it weren’t for my followers, KnowMom! would be nonexistent. So thank you!!!
Here’s to 2016! Wishing you and your families a very happy new year!
