Hooked on social media

I’m on a roll with these posts. Hahaha.

Let’s talk social media. Being a stay-at-home mom, (yes, that’s my topic at the moment), really hit me and I needed to find something to help me feel like I was doing something with my life. I started searching things to do online and how to be able to possibly make extra income. I had started Instagram about almost 3 years ago. Where I decided I would post my baby boy.

We started doing brand reps for small Etsy shops and Instagram shops and I loved it. I got to receive some nice handmade clothes for him and I got to take pictures of him and it kept me occupied. It became a bit hectic at some point because I had taken on 4 shops at once and some were more demanding than others and I had to be on schedule with my postings.

I ended my terms and decided to slow down.

From there I found out that companies can actually send you products for free in exchange for your reviews. So, I had the opportuniy to apply to two amazing companies and a year later here I am still working with them and I have been able to receive products that as a stay-at-home mom would not have been able to afford.

I have now started a new venture and thats selling paper flowers/decor that I make. I have also decided after 3 years, to pursue the business side of essential oils and soon I will be sharing a new business that I will be starting.

Doing all this requires that I spend a decent amount of time on social media. I try to post regularly and share stories to engage people. I know many wonder why I do it. Others probably find it annoying. I have lost followers but it’s okay.

There are days that I get discouraged and I want to quit all of it. There are days that I feel so defeated. There are also days that I feel super motivated.

At the end of each day I remind myself why I do it.

I didn’t plan to be a stay at home mom but it happened and if sharing on social media, writing reviews, or joining MLMs will help me be a stay-at-home for more years to come then I’ll push myself daily. I may not be successful today but tomorrow is a fresh start. My children are my motivation and drive to overcome daily obstacles and to not let negative people bring me down.

My annoying stories, my annoying stories will help me provide for my family and that’s what I’ll continue to do.

Don’t let others discourage you. Not everyone is good at a 9 to 5 job. Not everyone is good at 12+ hour shifts, not everyone like MLM, not everyone likes social media and all of this is okay. YOU do YOU every day!! !

Thank you for reading 💙
