One of the questions I get asked often is, “Why do you blog?” Sometimes I have one answer and other times I have many. Since it’s the beginning of a new year and we just completed a new move I’m sharing with you:
I don’t have a college degree. It’s something I didn’t feel I really needed, but as I get older I realize my lackadaisical interest in going to school was just me not knowing what I truly wanted to do. Do I know now? I think so. Journalism and/or Public Relations, are calling my name. Hence my first reason for blogging. I love to write. When I was younger I started writing a screen play. Crazy right? I get to exercise my brain and be creative. Sure I share a lot of different topics, but it’s because I enjoy writing to inform. That’s the journalist in me and with blogging I can share it all with you! Will I ever get my degree? That I cannot answer right now. I’d like to think that eventually I will do it.
Sharing a bit of our life. We are from a small town in eastern Texas. Not that I’m being like Aladin you know.. “I can show you the world” and all.. but I love being able to share what we are up to. Some family and friends read up on the blog and I love them for it. Like any other blog it’s a journal of what we are up to, what we love, places we’ve seen etc. If you’re making plans for a trip you can get ideas of fun activities that you can plan to do on your own or with your family when you get out.
I make money. I’m not making hundreds of thousands, but I’m yes I’m making money. One of the first goals when I started Candypolooza was to try to make money. If you read my About Me, I started in the blogging world as a content creator for a sweepstakes website. I saw that she made money while staying at home and I wanted to do it too. I never considered myself an entrepreneur but now.. I am a Professional Blogger. That’s crazy for me to write out. Doing other various things online we get to enjoy the cushion of an additional salary in our home. I guess you could say I provide the fun money and it works so well for our family. I truly count my blessings daily
Overall I truly love blogging. It’s been an excellent way to keep my creativity going and I’m making amazing memories with my family. Not only is it trips we’ve been on it’s the fact that I’ll be able to look back in a few years and see how much my boys have grown and all the fun we’ve had. I see that already, E was still a baby when I started Candypolooza. I’ve seen myself learn new things, things that I wouldn’t have ever thought to learn had it not been for blogging. I am a positive person and I love to be happy. Blogging a positive place for me, that my friends is why I blog.
