Rebirth: Restarting The Blossoming Mama Blog

Why I lost my previous blog and decided to start fresh

I’m back! 

As I sit down to write this, I’m filled with a mix of excitement and gratitude. Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in my journey as The Blossoming Mama—a chapter that’s been years in the making, marked by growth, healing, and newfound clarity.

I began The Blossoming Mama blog in February 2019, exactly 5 years ago. It was a labor of love, born out of my passion for holistic living, motherhood, empowering other mamas, and sharing my lifestyle. For over a year, I poured my heart and soul into creating content, connecting with fellow moms, and loved being in the blogging world.

But life has a way of throwing unexpected curveballs our way, doesn’t it? In September 2020, I found myself grappling with health issues that demanded my full attention. Amidst the chaos of doctor’s appointments, treatments, and the relentless demands of motherhood, my online presence, including my beloved blog, began to fade into the background.

It wasn’t a conscious decision to step away—it happened almost “out of the blue”. In those moments, my focus narrowed to the essentials: my family and my health. The thought of crafting blog posts or engaging with my online community felt like a distant dream. I even took a step back from Instagram at this time, which I have been active on as The Blossoming Mama for many years now. 

But as they say, every dark cloud has a silver lining. Throughout 2021, I devoted myself wholeheartedly to healing my body.  It was a journey filled with challenges and triumphs, setbacks and breakthroughs. And by the time 2022 rolled around, I emerged as a stronger, wiser, and healthier version of myself.

With renewed energy and determination, I dipped my toes back into the world of social media and online work. New opportunities came along as well, and I eagerly embraced them! I still had yet to jump back into the blogging world, but figured I may eventually. 

Then, in September 2022, a delightful surprise graced our family: I discovered I was pregnant with my third child. Our sweetest little Sutton, born premature in April 2023. this was expected, as out other two were as well.  And, again a time where I needed to pour more of myself into myself and family. 

Now, here we are, in February 2024, exactly five years since the beginning of and I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that I’m hitting the “refresh” button on my beloved blog. But this time, it’s not just a restart—it’s truly a rebirth.

Since time has passed  I’ve rebranded myself and have new online ventures and knowledge to bring to the table. I also forgot to mention that because I stopped my website so abruptly I didn’t even save some things as I should have, or fully back up my website, so it really made sense this time around to start fresh. 

So, bare with my as I transfer things over, and put in the work to build this blog back up and start over. Thank you for being here to embark on this new chapter together!
