The Blog Hotline :: An Introduction To The Series / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

The Blog Hotline :: An Introduction To The Series

Hi guys! I'm so excited to be introducing "The Blog Hotline" -- where on the second of each month, I'll be posting a blog post about the grit and grime behind social media, blogging and collaborating with brands.

When I first started blogging, I kind of just thrust myself into the realm with no prior knowledge. I reached out to a few insta famous mom bloggers who either didn't respond or gave me extremely vague answers that was essentially no help.

At first, I ran into all sorts of problems -- slow growth, gimicky collaboration requests, and the urging temptation to buy followers so I could catch up with people who seemed so far ahead [ gasp! -- we've all been there whether we want to admit it or not ], and the loneliness of trying to build a community when cliques and super inclusive mom groups rang within the halls of mom blogger instagram.

Even though I had no idea what I was doing, I went ahead and did it anyway. With a good amount of research, mistakes and restart ups, I made my blog become a little source of revenue. It's been a wild ride, but we're still on it and I'm honestly loving this platform.

I'd love to help other moms who are aspiring to blog or are feeling a bit lost. I'll be talking about all kind topics like...

  • instagram growth 
  • blog traffic / numbers
  • contacting brands 
  • giveaways
  • media kits
  • and so much more! 

It's my way of giving back to the community because without each other, we're essential nothing on this platform. If there's anything you'd like me to address in the series, let me know in the comments by sending me a message by filling out the contact form (found on the side if you're on a desktop or keep scrolling down if you're on mobile).

The first official post in this series goes live 

T H U R S D A Y :: A U G U S T 2 @ 7 A M P S T

.... so mark those calendars mom bosses and get ready to be equipped with information and tools to get your brand / blog where you want it to be!
