Where could we find you?
Tell us something about your life. How do you feel about it?
I originally started my parenting blog – veryanxiousmommy.com, as an outlet to share with other moms how to save money and live a frugal lifestyle while also raising children. I never thought it would be a great as it has been writing for my wonderful followers.
What major changes have come into your life after being a mom?
After becoming a mom, I have learned that I now need to take better care of myself so I can be strong for my children.
How crucial do you think is a Mother’s role in parenting?
I believe that a mother’s role is so important in every child’s life. There are different ways that a mother molds her children that a father does not.
What made you think to start blogging?
When my husband became disabled, I thought that I should try to make money from blogging to care for our family.
How do you get inspired to write? Your sources of inspiration.
Most of my inspiration comes from my family. My children challenge me as a parent and as I learn from these challenges, I share them with my readers.
How blogging changed your world?
Since starting my blog, I have met so many wonderful people, especially moms, who love to write and are beautiful people.
What is the most challenging aspect of being a mommy blogger?
My biggest challenge of being a mommy blogger is balancing time. I feel like I am pulled in different directions constantly.
Share your funniest yet cranky moment with your child.
My funniest moment has to have been when my 2-year-old son laughs at me even when I know he is cranky and needs to go to bed. Often times we are frustrated and our kids will make us laugh when we are supposed to be serious. It’s difficult now to laugh when they are being so adorable.
As such being a Mom you are working for 24*7, how do you really find a #metime? What do you like to do in your leisure time?
I love to binge watch TV shows on Netflix for #metime.
What aspects make your identity unique as a mommy blogger? (How you are different from other mommy bloggers?)
I believe I am different from other mom bloggers because I love using green products for my children, however, I am also realistic about my expectations and feel that I cannot stress about every little thing for my sanity. If I have to use a product that I am not perfectly organic or all natural, I just remind myself that sometimes my sanity is worth more.
How do you evaluate blogging as a career option?
I love blogging and have seen numerous moms turn blogging into a full-time career.
What type of planning strategy do you follow for your blog?
I have a whiteboard with sticky notes that have all of my blogging ideas on each stick note. I usually will pick one or two off the board each week and start outlining my post for that week. Once the post is up I will make a few different Pinterest images and schedule them with Tailwind.
Share your promotion strategy to get success. Which social media platform do you use the most?
I use Pinterest like nobody’s business.
Where do you get support on technical and non-technical issues with blogging?
I can generally find an answer to any problems I face with blogging on my Facebook groups
Any piece of advice for a new mommy blogger.
Take your time. Don’t rush into having everything published in one day. As a new mom blogger always remember why you started blogging and have fun with it.
What’re the next milestones you want to achieve?
I would love for my blog to become my full-time career.
The day you decide, is the day to execute. Heather is a true example how to turn every situation into your favor. Rather being scared of failure just have faith in your hard work.
