It is a weird world, the world of blogging. You get paid to sponsor things like Pop-Tarts and Kleenex, and then you take that money and use it to pay for giveaways so people come and read your content. So basically you are paying for people to come read about your life. Once I realized this, which took far too long by the way, I decided to end sponsorships and any form of money transactions. Mostly because I didn't want to write about Kleenex and Pop-Tarts anymore. Well, I actually don't mind writing about Pop-Tarts because they are amazing, but I don't need to be paid to say that. S'more Pop-Tarts are where it is at by the way, check them out.
I wanted to have the freedom to write when I wanted and how I wanted. Which turns out to be almost never, and mainly about my daughter. To me this is perfect though, because my life is taking a new direction. I can write about how coconut oil has been my #1 product as a mom! Which is probably lame to some people, but is super helpful to those moms who just CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY THEIR BABY HAS SKIN PEELING OFF THIER HEAD!... like me.
Over the past few weeks I have spent some time pondering how I plan to use this space. Honestly? I am still pondering. As the seasons of my life change I want this space to change with me as well. I want to look back and see where I was in my life and when. I want to look back and remember all of Addison's monthly milestones and the smell of her gorgeous baby head.
So I don't know where we will be going in the coming weeks, or even the coming year. I know this space will be filled with way too many baby photos and updates, and I understand if that isn't your "kinda thing". I also know that I don't really have to care if it is your "kinda thing" because I am writing this for me. I am writing this for those who care about our family and our baby. I am writing for other people out there who can relate to where I am on my life journey. So I hope you want to continue on with us, but if not that is ok too because Pop-Tarts aren't paying me to keep you here.
