My blogging journey began with a journal on MSN many years ago and then moved to Zanga where I started my first real blog , then to Blogger to Cheaper then Cheap and Simply Hollie and then I created Common Cents Mom almost 5 years ago. So that averages out to just over 2 posts a week, for 5 years and that is just on this blog. My first blog post ever was written some 12 years ago on December the 5th, 2001.
What a journey it has been.
Blogging has seen me parenting in the open, with everyone having a view to my life.
In my blog posts I have written about leaving Mormonism, life as a christian and then embracing Islam, parenting, family, and even tragic events like a deadly fire that took us from our home, moving across the country, my daughter’s diagnosis with special needs, and the direct effects of bullying.
I have also tried to share some tips that have helped me over the years. I was a mom on welfare when this journey all began, trying to raise my daughter. Who knew that 10 years later I would have a full time job in a field known as Social Media. Not me.
Blogging has blessed me with so many opportunities and has brought so many people into my life that I am blessed to call friends. I wish I could express my gratitude properly in words but they are lacking tonight as I write because what a journey it has been!
I have been blessed with great mentors to learn from, blessed with friendships that will last forever, great relationships with so many and I have had the chance to partner and work with some amazing people on this journey. To each I say Thank you!
