I Took a Two Month Hiatus From Blogging and Here's Why

Wow, it has been a long time since I sat down to write a blog post. Okay, okay, two months might actually not be that long but when you unexpectedly take a hiatus from blogging after spending the majority of the year writing everyday, it feels like forever! I’m happy to report that this blog post will officially mark the end of my unofficial hiatus from Made in Mom Jeans! That feels good to say but honestly when I stopped blogging back in October in order to give myself a little break, I had no idea whether or not I would come back.

My Weekly Routine as a Full-Time Blogger and Stay at Home Wife

Two weeks ago I started my current full-time blogging routine and I am happy to report that it is working great for me so far! I was able to take the lessons I learned from the first failed routine and apply them to my current on. The beauty of full-time blogging routines, work from home routines, or stay at home wife routines, is that they are by nature very flexible! I love that I can take this shell of a routine and mold it into what I need for whatever season of life I'm in and that's why I'm sharing my full-time blogging routine with you today. I've also included helpful tips throughout as well as some steps to get you started in creating your own work from home routine!

Authenticity and Blogging - A Letter to My Readers

Warning: this post is not the post I had planned to write today. I had originally wanted to share more on my recent trip to Nashville with Y'all but I felt the need to get something off of my chest so here it is. On my last Saturday Morning Coffee post, I talked a little bit more about the upcoming rebrand of the blog and invited everyone to participate in a survey to help with the rebrand. I was so excited to get a feel for what Y'all would think because naturally, your opinions mean the world to me, especially as this blog continues to grow and change. The first response I received was not very nice. In fact, I will go as far to say that it was downright mean. The words used in this particular response were deliberate and chosen because the person knew it would strike a chord with me.
