QOTD: When & Why Did You Start Blogging?
source: nightthree

I started my first blog a few months before my oldest daughter was born (more than six years ago!), because I wanted to be able to share updates, pictures and stories without clogging up people’s inboxes, especially since we lived 3,000 miles away from all of our friends and family at the time.

Three years later, I discovered the idea of “professional bloggers” and began a more purposeful mommy blog, only to realize that cute stories and crafts weren’t really my thing.

Two years ago, Organizing Your Way was born to encourage families to discover that being organized looks different for everyone, and this year I expanded that blog to the current Life Your Way so I could cover more of the topics that I’m thinking about in my own life.

That’s my blogging story in a nutshell! Today I want to know…

When and why did you start blogging?

Did you start blogging as a way to keep friends and family updated or as a way to earn income?

If you are a “professional blogger”, how did you decide on the type of blog you have?

If you blog to keep friends and family updated, would you ever consider a niche blog?

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
