Blogging is hard

Posted by on Aug 31, 2016 in Noobness | 1 comment

When I made the decision to blog in an attempt to make money I knew that it was a large undertaking and that it would be a long, hard process. That being said, I’m dedicated to making this work, so here I am…trying to figure it all out. We need money, we just bought our first home and while it’s super exciting and fun and jump up and down worthy, it’s expensive!

For the last 3 years I have had an at home job which worked for me, I made enough for us to live on and have fun with, and it was great. Then right around the time we closed on the house, that job ended. Sad face. So here I am, trying to find something else and struggling hard core. While we didn’t have a lot of debt before owning a home, we definitely accrued a decent amount after buying because we had to fill our big, beautiful new home!

My point here, I’m hoping that you guys will just follow along in my journey. My hopes are that this will work, and that maybe some of you will be inspired to do your own! We all have a story to tell, and this is a fantastic way to tell it. I’m going to work on prettying up this blog today, wish me luck!

What am I doing here?

So, I’ve done a lot of reading the last couple of days on how to start a blog, and I think I have a good handle on it. I used to blog many years ago, for my family, about my kids, but I stopped doing it because…well, Facebook. Who needs to blog when you have Facebook? Today that changes. So, as I was saying, I did a lot of reading, and most of the things I read said that I should choose a topic, like I NEED to choose one specific thing, and that’s what my blog will ultimately be about. Well kids, I can’t choose one thing.

I have a million thoughts any given second, and I want to share those thoughts with you! I want to talk about gaming, fandoms, nerd stuff, kids, teenagers, stuff that I buy and love, and want you to love too! I want to help army spouses out there, and give info on the craziness that is army life. If any of that interests you, then please bookmark or whatever one is supposed to do to a blog they like, and come back to me! I plan on being here for awhile.
