One of our growing passions about blogging as a part-time job is helping new bloggers get a strong start. We’ve learned so much along the way and love to help others take the next step in their blogging careers. In an effort to give some brand spankin’ new blogs a jump start, we will regularly introduce a few select ones to you. These bloggers are getting their own special feature because they signed up for their site through our Blogging Basics Series.
Today we welcome two new bloggers, Jamie from Simple Living Mommy and Dean from Answer Clarified.
Take it away, Jamie!
I’m a wife, a mommy to a beautiful son, am currently 6 months pregnant, and am a blossoming homesteader striving to do it all and giving myself grace when that just isn’t possible!
When I decided to start Simple Living Mommy, I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned along my journey as a wife, first time mom, and frugal homesteader. My thought was that if I could just help one struggling mom transition to becoming a stay at home mom, or one family start to live a little more simply by growing their own veggies, then the time I spend blogging was worth it.
I created Simple Living Mommy as place to find inspiration on the journey through motherhood, marriage, and a goal of simpler living. Simple living to me is being more self-sufficient, living more naturally, and enjoying the little joys that life has to offer – all while on a budget! I also want to share my journey as I learn to juggle housework, meal planning, and small house living with an ever-growing family.
My hope is that you will find some motivation from my little corner of the blogosphere – whether you’re trying to get pregnant, have a large family already, or are just trying to find some time to enjoy your husband through all of the chaos. My goal is to help my readers find the silver lining in every stressful situation, because life is too short to be overwhelmed and unhappy! Join me as we find solutions together. I want all of my readers to find a reason to smile through poopy diapers, disorganized houses, and burnt dinners. It really is all about the journey.
This second blog is something a bit different than the typical blogs we tend to feature but we are excited to put him (yes, HIM) in front of you. Dean, from Answer Clarified is here to tell you a bit more about himself and his brand new blog.
Take it away, Dean!Born in 1980, I entered the Marine Corps as an Intelligence Analyst in 1999. Before during and after the military, I traveled to many parts of the world, including the Middle East, some parts of Great Britain and Europe, the Western Caribbean, and many beautiful U.S. States. I’ve always been very active, and started with cross-country running. I moved to mountain bike off-trail riding, weight lifting, kayaking, cross-training, Yoga, Tai Chi, various other activities, and meditation. I’m an avid reader, and stay abreast on current health trends. I enjoy trying out trends that I think may have validity, and assess them for myself.
I have a passion for clarifying matters concerning health. If there is anything I’m not clear on, I research and research until I have a very good understanding. After many years of doing this, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge on various topic. Now, I would love to share this knowledge with you.
