Sometimes in life you just have to evolve. When I created Glam Hungry Mom it was before blogging was a “thing.” I didn’t start it as a business or to make money. Friends and family asked me for beauty tips, recipes, and updates on my family since we lived 3,000 miles away. I created my little virtual home for those very purposes. I had no idea anyone else actually read my blog for at least 6 months. I didn’t know anything about analytics, generating income, or how to market myself when Glam Hungry Mom was created.
So why the change? Glam Hungry Mom seemed like such a persona. Sometimes I wanted to write beyond those three words. Blogging has brought some amazing friendships with my readers and other bloggers. I want my blog to feel more personal..more like me now. I will still write about beauty, motherhood, style, and the occasional recipe. With this change I want to incorporate more life, travel, and more.
As my coconuts get older, I will probably write less and less about motherhood, and more about life. My youngest is only three, but in a blink of an eye he will be a first grader just like his big brother.
Seriously, where does all the time go? I might be writing about smelly boys instead of cute baby faces.
While the Glam will never die, and I will always be a Mom. Hungry just doesn’t apply anymore. When I first started blogging I posted recipes once or twice a week. Now, they aren’t super common. I will post occasional recipes, but for now I’m just a mom trying to throw food on the table. I just don’t have the time to create fun recipes and take beautiful pictures of it. When I do, I promise I will share!
Here’s where the blog gets personal. I am currently fifty pounds heavier than I was when this blog was created. Many of you expressed interest on Instagram and Snapchat about following my weight loss journey. This frightens the daylights out of me.
What if I fail? What if I live in elastic pants for the rest of my life?
I’ll be one hundred percent with you all. My will power with food is weak. I’m a pushover when it comes to food. When I look at a burger I forget I’m fat and stuff my face. I don’t remember I’m trying to be healthy until ten seconds after I devoured a thousand calories. It’s something I’m working on.
It’s my real life.
I want to share my struggles, triumphs, favorite things, beauty tips and tricks, and even become bffs.
Sound good? Cheers! Let’s drink to that.
Side note: that watermelon drink was awful. Pretty sure I had an iced tea with lemon after that.
I hope you guys love this change as much as I do. Please feel free to message me at anytime. I mean it. I always love to hear from you guys!
I appreciate you so much!
