What The Hell

I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog for a few weeks, ever since I read an article about Mommy bloggers and how much money they can make. I have also been inspired by my sister who recently started her own blog.

So I figured, what the hell. I am an opinionated, sarcastic mother of three with a sense of humor about myself and entertaining stories to share. If people want to read about my thoughts and everyday work/life balancing struggles, why shouldn't I give them the opportunity. Oh, and if by chance advertisers want to pay me for ad space, awesome. Have at it.

I can't promise this blog will contain any wisdom, inspiration, secrets to the meaning of life or the fountain of youth, but I do hope it gives you a little break from your day, possibly a minute or two to realize your not alone, or if nothing else, something to laugh at.

Meet my family. My husband and I were high school sweet hearts and have been married for 13 years. Our son was a college graduation present and I like to say, "What happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay in Vegas." I wanted to have a second child close behind our first because:
  1. I was so sad to put away the baby clothes from our first child
  2. I wanted an excuse for being overweight (a life long struggle, I'm sure I will touch on this later)
I am sure you can tell from the picture our newest addition was a pleasant surprise (or at least pleasant after the initial shock wore off).

Of course I love each and every one of them. As hectic and crazy as life can be, I wouldn't have it any other way.

You never cease to amaze me. I am sure you will be very entertaining, and I love that you and Beth will take on new challeges and try new things. I am very proud of both of you.

Since I have basically just added something to my to-do-list I certainly can't promise more photos of the kids. Stories, yes. Pictures ummmm.....

You are off to a good start here. This post title caught my eye, and pictures are always good to keep the attention.

Keep it up, and slowly but surely, your readership will grow.

Also, don't expect to make too much money blogging. This is one area I am trying to improve on. Right now, I only make about $10 per month, and I spend about 2 hours per day blogging. But I'm learning more every day, and that is what counts.

Jeremy,

Thanks so much for the advice. Being a newbie this is all a bit overwhelming. If you have more wisdom to share, I am all hears!
