The Self-Care Mom (formerly known as Motherhood Through My Eyes, MTME) began as an everyday journal by a young, first-time mom exploring the idea of parenting. At 23, it was exciting to document my daily experiences with a newborn. It opened doors for me as I transitioned from a working parent to a stay-at-home mom.
How This Blog Began
As exciting as it might be to set up your own daily schedule, there was a sense of loneliness. Living in a new state with a new role, there was little time for myself. I needed something to keep me sane and to have something for when the kids were all in school.
With time, my blog has expanded into a website for new moms and moms of multiples to find parenting tips they can use daily. This is when I turned things around and used my blog as a business.
