I’ve had this blog for a few years now, I’ve also had a number of other blogs during the same time. What I’ve always struggled with is joining my passions. I LOVE being a mom. I think it’s one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever been given. I am deep down a nerd. Because I also love blogging and content marketing. Like I spend my free time reading about it while others I know are shopping for their kiddos or looking up recipes for the next block party. So my dilemma, how to do what I love and write about it?
And then I had an ah-ha moment.
Why not combine them? I mean seriously, why not?
I’ve seen other bloggers do it, those with their income reports and their Pinterest how-tos. Why didn’t I do it sooner? Why didn’t I think of it sooner?
Because I was more concerned about my audience than myself. I was concerned for you, the reader. You might be a mom, but you might not necessarily be a blogger or interested in content marketing or you might just use Pinterest (gasp) just because you like stuff.
Because of all my worries, I backed away from Chocolate + Chaos completely and that didn’t do anyone any good.
So here’s the deal. From now on you’ll see a mix of parenting posts as well as stuff about blogging. Oh yeah, and some awesome threads for little ones in our new online store.
If you don’t like the stuff about blogging, just skip it! They’ll be an awesome article you’ll love not too far behind it.
So that’s it for now. We’ll see you soon :).
