Begin again?

When I started blogging,  I was doing it out of sheer boredom as a new stay at home human.  I initially started it as a way to blow off steam and kill time.  While doing it I started seeing that women were making "tons of money" blogging from home. 

I was hooked.  I thought this could be a way for me to contribute financially without leaving the house.  So I learned the marketing part but I forgot about my content.  I took a cheap and fast way instead of building a great product first.  For me, I feel with blogging and vlogging, the product is my most authentic self, and if I'm focused on marketing, I can't be that. 

I am returning to blogging and I absolutely love making YouTube videos, so I'm back to both but with a different intention than "making money from home"

I just want to write stuff and make videos.  Money will come when the content is good.

So, in the future I am scaling down marketing and where I share my video and written posts so I can focus on making something creative and fun!

I grew up in Broken Arrow, Ok.  Not much happens there but, one thing you can count on every year, is the Tulsa State Fair!  Back then they connected our state fair to the Bell's Amusement Park.  The fair was usually the only reason I went to Bell's.

When I would go, I thought the people who worked there and ran the rides were the coolest people on the planet.  I thought it would be awesome to wear a jean jacket, tons of hairspray and play music really loud.

I don't think I would want that job now, the responsibility of everyone's safety at a theme park is actually big deal.

I also thought acting would be the best job in the world but it turns out, motherhood is.  I just got my SAG-Aftra renewal card in the mail.  I still pay my dues even though I know I'm not working.  I suppose being union means enough for me to keep until I can work again, but it doesn't fill me, right now, with the joy it used.

I'm sure it will again someday but right now, I just love seeing smiles on Cora's face and looks of love in my husband's eyes.

Make sure you check out my daily vlog!  Our newest one is up!!!

The Toy I Always Wanted

Hello world!

It's been awhile but I am back to blogging.  Usually that will mean a nice entry prompted from BlogHer but, I am also doing the Nablopomo prompts on YouTube as video blogs.

Daylight savings has me incredibly sleepy.  I got to bed late last night thinking of my extra hour but I found out that babies do not observe daylight savings.

Today the blog prompt was, what toy a friend had when I was younger that I wish I had.  I always wanted a bubble popper vacuum and Cora has one.  In fact, Cora has received two in the past year!  I guess wishes really do come true even if many years too late.

But I am fighting myself awake and I'm signing off with the intent to produce better and more thought out content on both my YouTube page and my blog.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the vlog!
