#SummerBlogSocial, this one stuck out. Where do I see myself in 6 months to a year? Or, what do you want to be when your blog grows up?
This is something I've been pondering a lot in recent weeks. I got my start in cloth diapers, but I'm not enough of an addict to be strong in that niche. That I'll talk about parenting is a given, how could I not? Breastfeeding, also a given, especially since I'm planning to start work on becoming a La Leche Leader soon. Marriage? That's one that I didn't really plan on, until a post that was supposed to be about discipline morphed into one about healthy fighting.
I'm only really 2 months old, my 3 month birthday is in a week or so. And I feel like a teenager. I see what I might become, but I'm not sure exactly how to get there. I don't quite know who I am yet. Maybe that's the song, "Que sera, sera. Whatever will be will be."
But my dream? My plan? My goal?
In 6 months I'd like to double my readership. I'd like my blogging to be mature enough with enough (k)clout, that I can confidently approach some companies about reviewing products. I'd like to set up a Q&A day during the week and actually have some Q's to A!
At a year I'd love to be at the point where I can sell some ad space to trusted companies, and be sponsored by others. I'd like to be known for articles, essays, advice from a real mom to real moms. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, parenting, marriage while wrangling kids. I know that I might not have always have information or experience to answer every question, so I'd like to have a variety of contributors that I trust to handle those types questions for me.
Is that too much to hope for? Too much to try for while raising two boys? Maybe...but I've never made a habit of doing things the easy way!
