Now, obviously micromanaging is not dangerous as in your life is at risk, but it can have a negative impact on your life and business. When I learned not to micromanage it made a huge impact on both my personal growth and business growth. And, that's why I am addressing this as part of our 30-day series.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret of mine—I don't always like sitting down to write. Does that surprise you? A lot of people get the impression that bloggers just love sitting down and pouring over their keyboards with words just spilling out of their fingers. Don't get me wrong, there are times when it feels like that. There are times when I can't seem to get the words out fast enough. But, then there are plenty of days when I sit down and just can't seem to force myself to start writing. Can you relate?
If you have been asking yourself questions like "What do I write about?", "What blog post ideas will my readers connect with?", or simply "Where do I start?" don't worry. I have you covered. I'm going to share 6 theme ideas that readers love. These are general ideas which will allow you to easily tailor them to your category or niche. You can just choose one to use on your first, or next, blog post and get started.

You know those times in life where you just get in a funk? You know you have things that need to be done to grow your blogging business but you just aren't motivated. That last thing you "feel" like doing is sitting down to work on your blog. Have you been there before? You're not alone!
It's time to grab your pen and paper or open your favorite note-taking app and let's get to work. I want to talk to you today about why it's so important to know the purpose of your blog.
If you have researched building a blogging business before you might have heard something similar regarding marketing topics and knowing your audience. But, that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about living with purpose and bringing that fire into your blogging business.
Running a blogging business is not easy. It doesn't matter what your situation is, it's going to be a challenge. However, when you’re a mom and you add little ones into the mix it adds a new piece to the puzzle. They depend on you for everything which makes it more difficult to find the time to complete your blogging business tasks. You can't just set aside your "mom" tasks in order to run your business. Those little humans are counting on you and you need to make sure they have the time, attention, love, and snuggles that they need!
That's why the first of the mom hacks is to help you learn how to boost your productivity by changing your mindset. Let's get started.
