This year marks five years of blogging for The Eco-Friendly Family and for my friend Kim, from Dirty Diaper Laundry. While our blogs have many differences, our stories parallel one another in many ways.
We both began blogging because we found a passion in cloth diapers and natural parenting. At the time there weren’t many websites or blogs on the topic, and if there were I didn’t know it. Like Kim, I started my blog to share what I was learning with others. I wanted to be able to help other parents looking for the information that I was seeking out and learning about.
Five years later, I’ve written nearly 500 posts – with nearly 100 of those on cloth diapers alone—and even the oldest of them still get shared to help parents today. It’s truly amazing. In that same time Kim’s blog and YouTube channel have grown into the most loved and trusted resource for information on cloth diapers. If you haven’t discovered her blog yet, I encourage you to do so. I love her style and am lucky to call her a friend.
During these last five years my blog has grown considerably, and two years ago I had the privileged of becoming part of the team at Green Child Magazine. I consider myself very fortunate to have work that I find so much purpose, joy, and love in. Every one of you that has read a post, left a comment, or clicked ‘like’ is a big part of that. That encouragement means more than you know. Thank you.
