How was She’s A Wreck born?

She’s A Wreck was born after thinking about my situation at the time and how I felt I could use my voice in the motherhood space.

 

I was working 10 hour days, raising my family, struggling with anxiety, and working hard in my marriage. But I was the happiuest I had been in 10 years. I had begun practicing more on loving myself first.

 

Some days, I was a wreck. Other days, I was a Woman Rediscovering and Embracing Change & Knowledge (W.R.E.C.K.)

 

There were so many women online asking for parenting tips and I had stories to tell. So, I knew I had to follow my heart and use my passion for writing to share these experiences, tips, hacks, and strategies I had.

My daily tasks usually consist of:

 

  • pitching brands
  • making site changes as needed
  • posting in blogging support groups
  • promoting my blog on social media
  • pinning on Pinterest
  • drafting new content
