I’ve been reminiscing in my mind, thinking about times past, thinking about the old me, about the old Ohana Mama.
I’ve been thinking about that girl that blogged frequently, wrote often (even if it didn’t get posted to the blog), took pics upon pics (psst, I still do on Instagram come follow!), commented on other blogs, did blogs hops, worked with amazing sponsors.
I was happy because I could be a mom, live the life I loved on Maui, make a little money, meet amazing people and oh yeah…did I mention, be happy.
So, I’m getting back to all of that. I want to be a mommy blogger all over again.
This all started because I took on a coaching client over at Tadah and it sparked all that I LOVED about being a mommy blogger. As I was teaching her how to get her blog into the mommy blogger scene, I saw that my fingers would be on fire with each email to her. My heart rate would spike and I’d be smiling as I typed tips to her.
I realized that when I was super super happy, I was THE Ohana Mama. I was writing 5 days a week. I was chatting with and reading other mommy blogs and I had this amazing energy in my life that I loved. I was able to be the FULL me. I could start emails with “Aloha” since I was The Ohana Mama…Hawaii Mom Blogger…
I know that sounds simple but as a business person you can’t always be aloha and sunshine. Those New York folks tend to look at you funny when you sign emails with “mahalo”. BUT not when they are writing to me, the mom blogger in Hawaii. Instead an “aloha” or “mahalo” is expected and loved and maybe even makes that New Yorker smile a little, as they dream of mai tais and sunsets.
I didn’t even know I was lost..well maybe a little…but now I’m found.
(I even bought a ticket to Blogher over the weekend…yup, The Ohana Mama is baaaaaack! Hip hip hooray!)
