What inspired you to start your blog?
Writing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. However, over the years I found that I wasn’t writing as much as I used to. When I was on maternity leave with my daughter a couple of years ago I considered starting my own parenting blog but was a little apprehensive about going through with it. What if I didn’t have enough good ideas to keep it going? What would make me stand out from all of the other mom blogs out there? Would anyone even read it? I ended up talking myself out of it but the idea never left my mind. Then, at the beginning of this year my sister-in-law asked me to write a guest blog for her health and wellness website and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! I immediately found myself thinking about starting my own blog again and was so full of ideas! One Sunday afternoon I spent a few hours alone at a coffee shop and just wrote. The creative juices were flowing and so many ideas just came pouring out. Less than one month later Mama @ Heart was launched and I am loving every minute of it!
What is your blog about?
I mostly write about my own personal experience with motherhood. What inspires me, what challenges I face, my goals. I also share favourite recipes, write kid’s book reviews, share life hacks and organizing tips.
What are you passionate about?
As I mentioned, I love to write! I also love reading, cooking and baking, watching movies, spending time with my husband watching our favourite TV shows or just chatting, and most of all my kids! I have a four year old son and two year old daughter. I love this stage they are at! They are learning so many things. I love hearing their stories! And I especially love hearing them laugh!
Where do you see your blog in five years?
Ideally I would love for my blog to become my full time job. I am still relatively new at blogging and still have a lot to learn and plan, but maybe one day I can expand my blog to larger audience. I also would love to see if I can write a book that is connected to my blog.
