Why she blogs

Why does she blog?

The modern phenomenon of the female blogger. Thanks to WordPress (and others) women now have a platform to share…what?

Cooking tips?

Yes, actually. My family have benefited from quite a few recipes via blogs and Pinterest.  You’ll like this board if this resonates!

Community?

Totally…the garden fence used to be the main place to feel connected, certainly from my mum’s era (60s UK).  Today we commune in many other ways and can learn from other moms quietly online even if we choose not to comment.

All in a days work between school runs, washing up and laundry.

Brand support…like or dislike?

Oh, yes.  I’ll just mention Maytag and Dooce as a case study…and leave it at that.

The power of the female blogger to influence brands – hopefully for the better – is now a given.   Belfies are just not my style, although some people do find them inspiring or whatever. #notbuyingit

Rants, raves and world changers?

Even better, women are lending their powerful voices to the worlds of health, wellness and social change.  There’s that famous saying

‘The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world’

She blogs and she is Malala

I think we’ve still got a ways to go in that department…and most women in their balanced place would not want to rule the world alone…perhaps just rock it – now we can do that with WordPress and other blog platforms too.

Malala Yousefzai is currently my personal hero(ine) of choice.  Her commitment to education for all is world changing and wonderful.  She risked her life to blog about the right to schooling when the Taliban were shutting down schools all over her country.

Perhaps the quote needs to be updated to

‘The hand that rocks the cradle and writes a great blog about it or Tweets or speaks on YouTube…influences the world for the better’.

As long as she knows SEO, and learns about the power of social media, that is.

Why I blog?

It started as therapy after my mum passed away as a result of an unnecessary H1N1 vaccine.  I have my reasons.

As a UK mum/mom in the US, I believe US moms are being short-changed when it comes to alternative health options for themselves and their children.  That’s one of the reasons why I started Mom On A Spiritual Journey.

See, we’re just exchanging recipes, is all

And finally, back to recipes.

See, recipes CAN actually change the world. Ask the Food Babe about that. She knows. She blogs.
