Every time I surf the web, I come across some of the cutest well written mommy blogs. I love blogging and this is one of the 3 blogs that I write currently. I jumped into blogging a little over a year ago, with my first blog naturalnina.com, and then I started this blog and Freebie Frenzies. All of my blogs were originally on Blogger until yesterday when I moved this blog and Freebie Frenzies over to WordPress. Natural Nina is still on Blogger because it’s a custom domain, and I haven’t figured out how to move the blog, without losing all of my followers and my page rank.
I made the move to WordPress because I am a Communications student at Drexel University, and social media is the area that I would like to work in professionally. WordPress is the blogging platform that most social media employers want a potential candidate to be well versed in. In addition to that, I like the design of most of the WordPress blogs that I see. I’m excited to learn about using WordPress, and I know that the upcoming electronic publishing course that I’m taking over the summer will help me to hone my skills.
I’m aware that this blog is primarily a mommy blog, all about my crazy days with my 3 year old and my 18 month old twins, but it’s also about my personal struggles as a student making a career change. I’m currently a Stay a home mom (not by choice), although I enjoy my time with my kids, I can’t wait to finish my degree program and find my niche in social media.
In the meantime, I’ll be here learning, conducting product reviews, and keeping you all up to date on all things mommyville. If any of you out there have any tips on how to work with WordPress, please feel free to share them. This blogging platform is completely different from Blogger, so I will take any help that I can get!
