It’s not mean feat being a Mummy or Daddy blogger. you have to be skilled in time management, pc and internet savvy, have a keen eye for a good photo, know your way around social media and have an understanding family. For some of us it’s a hobby, others it’s a job but to be able to create a read worthy blog there are certain sacrifices that have to be made and rules to which we must abide. For those of you who were wondering just what it takes, here’s a little peek into the life of a Mummy Blogger…
You check your emails / write blog post ideas / check Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram while on the loo as you’re a pro multi tasker and you won’t get disturbed (for 5 minutes, ok. maybe 2.)
You Twitter on the loo, while changing baby’s nappy, waiting inline at a till and when you should have left for the school run 5 mintutes earlier (but you need to let everyone know you’re running late)
Your baby / toddler goes down for a nap and you;
a. catch up on your housework
b.sit down and have a well earned rest, hot cup of tea and leisurely flick through a trashy mag, or
c.switch on the laptop and write a blog post about all the housework and other things you should be doing but don’t have the time because you have to write a blog post?
You keep your house clutter free and tidy, not for unexpected guests, but do it looks good in photos
You lug around a heavy DSLR camera so you can take photos, just incase.
Your cause undue worry to your family that you’re going to post dodgy photos of them every Wednesday, even your toddler has stopped having tantrums and covering the dog in stickers.
Other mums at the school gates speak s little quieter so you don’t hear their grumbles and write about them.
Your wake up an hour early to get to the front of a link up queue, only to find 7 other mummy bloggers have beaten you too it.
Your family are coming to the dinner table 10 minutes after you call them as they know you’ll keep them waiting while you take photos of the delicious, blog worthy meal you’ve created.
You recommend a product to a friend, then follow with a verbal disclaimer.
