Start a Blog to Document Your Parenting Fun and Frustrations

Every parent is different, but we're all learning as we go along. There are lots of lessons you'll learn as a parent, as well as many frustrations, joys and surprises. Often you'll want to share these things, or just see if anyone else is experiencing the same things you are. Although you might have friends who are parents, sometimes you can feel like you haven't exactly found your "parenting tribe". One way you can reach out to more people and engage with other parents is by starting a blog. It's a fun thing to do, a great way to share your opinions, and a way you can practise and showcase your creative skills too. If you're thinking of starting a blog, here are some things to consider.

Revealing Your Personal Life Online

Before you decide to start up a blog, think about how much of yourself you want to share online. Many of us already share a lot of information through social media, but we often prefer to share it with friends only. Also, these are usually only snapshots of our lives and not in-depth posts. If you start a blog, how are you going to approach it? Are you going to be anonymous or perhaps avoid mentioning your children's names? What subjects are you prepared to discuss? Remember that once something is online, it can be very hard to get rid of. Are you prepared for your children to read what you write if they one day discover your blog?
