Why Did I Start Blogging?

Today is Day 5 of the Blog Dare challenge and I am very pleased with myself as I have kept up with the challenge.  Todays optional prompt for the dare is, Why Did I Start Blogging?

It’s been quite a long time since I started blogging and I haven’t always been consistent so it took me a few minutes to recall why I started in the first place. 

At the time, my husband and I were “the people” to talk to about vacations and how to stretch your travel dollar further.  I had also become a bit of an expert at finding ways to save money to help stretch our family budget further.  My first blog was all about money saving tips, including sales and coupon codes.  Then I started doing reviews on my favorite baby products as friends were asking me for my opinion on our favorite products and where I got them from.  Financial Opportunities came about when my children were babies and included ways to make money from home.  I soon found myself with five blogs and I decided enough was enough. 

In 2010 I decided to consolidate my blog posts into this single blog to make things more simple for myself and my readers.

Now I blog about what is important to me when I sit down at my laptop.  It could be a product review (unpaid), a family update, ways to make money, or information on health and wellness.

  1. Off the top of my head, the answer that I would give to this question is that I hope something I say helps someone and that I make a little bit of money from blogging. I look forward to getting to know you during the Blog Dare. What places have you enjoyed traveling to since you have been here in the States and what places do you miss in Australia?

  2. I love to travel and how it feels when you see a place for the first time. I have been so lucky to see a lot of California and to visit New York, Florida, Michigan, Indiana, Washington and Las Vegas (many times).
    Being in the States has also allowed us to do so much more travel than I would ever have been able to do living in Australia.
    I miss Sydney because there is just so much to do and there is public transport everywhere; and the Sunshine Coast as it has the most beautiful beaches in the world and it’s where I spent my teens.
