I started blogging 2.5 years ago when the twins were toddlers. At that point I was a full-time Stay-at-Home-Mum (SAHM) as I’d opted not to return to my former Human Resources (HR) career, after maternity leave. I fell into blogging through a friends recommendation; I didn’t know anything about the industry at all and I definitely didn’t realise that people earned any money from it. I set up a…
