Blogging is the new Mary Kay
This is my fourth year as a blogger and I’m learning so many new things about what that title really means. I write under the label of a ‘mommy blogger’ because this, my second blog, was inspired by my pregnancy last year. It has been a vehicle to share my pregnancy, birth, and life as a first time mom (plus whatever else my little heart desires!). I’ve connected with people from all over the U.S. with this blog and am still expanding that network through communities like BlogHer.com.
I’ve discovered that I truly have a passion for writing as a result of blogging and I’m channeling that passion into other areas. While I’m not a journalist, or even a published author (yet!) I still feel like I have a voice and something worthwhile to say, and this blog gives me a platform to speak that voice. I can write about whatever I feel like writing about, and that’s a freedom that I enjoy.
It’s fascinating to me how you can turn a blog into a business venture, which is why I feel like blogging is the new Mary Kay. You can run ads, do product reviews, attend conferences, whatever you like! It’s a way to potentially earn income while sitting at home in your pajamas. The biggest difference though, is that instead of selling make up and skin care products, the product is YOUR opinion…and who can beat that?
I would venture to say that virtually every American woman knows another woman that either sells Mary Kay or uses their line of products. It’s well known in the U.S. and abroad as an opportunity for women who desire to be self employed to start their own business. You can use the opportunity to become an “Independent Beauty Consultant” on a part-time or full time basis. It’s basically up to you how you want the business to grow. It has given women all over the country (and beyond) a chance to change their lives for the better. Love it or hate it, that’s the truth!
I’m sure you’re thinking it…so no, this is not a written commercial for Mary Kay! The bottom line here is that these two opportunities are a source of empowerment and connecting for women. Whether you enjoy make up or like to write, you have a chance to tell the world your story and by doing so, encourage, strengthen, and inspire other women!
