When people ask what I do for a living I usually reply “I’m a Stay-at-Home-Mom.” It’s true… I’m ‘homemaker’, but I also work from home and spend a lot of time writing, taking photographs and promoting products online. The correct response to the question is: “I’m a social influencer, which is a fancy way of saying I’m a mom-blogger.”.
I’ve created this category on the Twin Pickle blog to share some behind-the-scenes info on what it’s really like being a mom-blogger. Because it’s not what most people envisage. I don’t just curl up with a cup of tea when the kids are in bed and share my thoughts on the parenting.
I am coordinating multiple influencer campaigns with brands at once, working on different timelines, through different agencies. I’m planning my Instagram feed to look aesthetically pleasing while squeezing in sponsored content intertwined organically with everyday posts. I’m scheduling Pins to Pinterest, tweeting, and creating memes for Facebook. I’m writing to my subscribers and chasing my kids around with a camera in hand. And somewhere in the middle, I find time to edit photos and write.
This is the life of a mom blogger.
I’m going to be tweaking this category over the next few days, but for the moment, if you’re just looking for an overview on blogging, check out my original blogging post titled: ‘Blogging Brain Dump‘.
