I’m Laura and I am mom to two little boys, and wife to the love of my life for 5 years. I blog at Short and Sweet Moments where I share how I’m learning to live life in God’s grace. I share my daily life including my struggles through Post Partum Depression, surviving stressful seasons, and learning how to be a healthy mom, wife, and woman in a high pressure society.
What are your top 3 blogging goals? and how are you striving to reach them?
I hope that I am able to encourage women, use my blog as a creative outlet, and make money. I encourage women by sharing my life experiences so that women know they aren’t alone in their struggles and that there is hope. Blogging is a creative outlet by allowing me to share my thoughts and design pictures. Making money is a goal of mine, but it’s still a long ways off.
How do you overcome writer’s block
Because I share my daily struggles, I don’t run out of material!
What is your Blogging Inspiration
If I’m struggling with something, then I know someone else is struggling with it too!
Do you have any pieces of advice for other bloggers
When I started blogging, my first goal was to make money. Some of the blogging advice I read before I started blogging made it sound like to me that I could get an blog making money in 6 months. Well that may be true, but it’s not possible without putting A LOT of time into the blog. I really wanted to make money, but I knew if I put the time into my blog that it needed, the health of myself and my family would suffer. So while it is definitely possibly to make money from blogging, be sure you know what your priorities are in life and then determine how much time you can put into your blog. Then don’t be discouraged if making money is further away than you hoped. You and your family comes first, and that’s okay!
