SAHM which also stands for Stay-At-Home Mom, is someone who doesn’t do a traditional job but stays at home to look after children and do other household duties. It is a socially constructed job for women.
Can a stay-at-home mom also blog?
Yes. A stay-at-home mom who gets some time off during the day, night or weekend can also blog online. Why am I saying so?
A stay-at-home mom has experience in caring for children, doing other household chores, and sometimes caring for the aged or sick adults. Given that, statistics and research shows that females are the main carers for aged parents and sick adults at home all over the world.
The women, especially SAHM’s have more practical experience to share with other women in America or all over the world about childcare and household duties. What’s the best way to share these practical experiences with other women than through the internet blog platform?
When we look at the economy, the women are playing less and less role in it because of their biological childbirth duties, which keeps them at home. Whiles, the men are working and making money to support the home life.
The only way for women to play a part in the economy without leaving the house is through blogging. This will get the women’s creative juices flowing and afford them the chance to help others as well.
Many female content creators who are baby boomers have found financial freedom through online blogging or copywriting while being a stay-at-home mom. A lot of these earn six-figure income, which is more than their husbands earn.
I will offer two examples here to buttress my point. Meet Lena, a CPA turned stay-at-home-mom of 3 with a successful blog at https://www.whatmommydoes.com/about/. Again, meet Kelly, a busy working mom who is also able to create a successful blog at https://ouradventurejournal.com.
Writing is therapeutic, and can help a stay-at-home mom heal their emotional stress or worry. As she writes her thoughts out, it frees her to heal faster and much better. As we all men can agree that childcare at household chores are also very difficult gender-roles women play.
Conclusion: why a stay-at-home mom should blog?
So, if you want to write as a stay-at-home mom, please do. Because it pays well, heals emotions and helps you share your experiences with the world. I have only provided two examples of mothers who are blogging, whether working or at home. There are countless examples you can find online to motivate yourself.
