Why I Love Being a Mom and Blogger

When I was a kid I used to watch Doogie Howser M.D., if you were born in the 80’s I’m pretty sure you are familiar with the series. At the end of the day, Doogie will type his entry on his personal computer diary while I write my feelings, memories and random thoughts in my diary. But I stopped writing when I graduated from college and started working.

Year 2008 when I became a mom, that time I want to have a personal blog to document my son’s development and milestones. I also want to share my journey as a wife and mother but like I said, I have no idea how to create a blog, I said it here numerous times that my first post in Wordpress was also my last post because I find it too complicated.  Last year, I discovered Blogger and I created Michi Photostory, where I share pieces of my life. 

From that moment I enjoy writing and sharing my experiences as a mom and wife, our travel trips, food trips, and even my random thoughts. I have no idea that blogging could be fun and therapeutic. Blogging became my “me time” and I’m happy writing my post at the same time reading other blogs. 
Some people may never understand why I blog but I have my own reasons why I love being a mom and blogger. I love being a mom because I know not all women can bear a child and I’m really thankful that God gave me a chance to become a mother.

My son completes me; there are things that I’ve discovered when I had him. I never thought that I could give up my career and be a full-time mom. I never thought that I could find joy and satisfaction being a domestic goddess. The journey may not be easy but I still love taking the path of motherhood.

Being a full-time mom gives me more time to blog, aside from my son, this blog became my baby. I have my own dreams and wish lists too for this blog. I’m happy when I see new followers, comments, thoughts, suggestions, and feedbacks. 

I enjoy blog hopping because I learned a lot, it allows my mind to travel, to eat and to feel their experience. It allows me to see the world even at the comfort of my home. Being at home for almost 24/7 is not easy because you have less time to socialize but I don’t mind because I gained online friends through blogging.

I have more reason why I love being a mom and blogger but I don’t want to bore you reading my post.  But before I end this post, I would like to share this “Don’t live to blog or blog to live, but live then blog”.  I’ve read it somewhere but this is a constant reminder to me, mommy duties first before blogging.


  1. "Don’t live to blog or blog to live, but live then blog" So true. =)

  2. i salute mommy bloggers!!! ang galing! :)

  3. I haven't been active in the blogosphere lately and now that I visited your blog again, I see some changes- i.e. header. I've been a follower of your blog since I started blogging too (I think we started almost at the same time last year) and I remember thinking "wow, this mom always has blog entries, she must have a lot of pageviews already". Well, I'm sure you do and I'm happy to know that blogging is working well for you. Good job and more power to you sis!
