How Blogging Changed My World?

So I guess, I never did a proper introduction – totally guilty! Let me introduce myself: I am Falak, married to my high school sweetheart for 10 years now. We have 2 beautiful little girls, Haniya and Maryam who are 5 and half and 4 year olds.

I have been blogging on and off for over 3 years now and it all started with my love for subscription boxes, especially related to kids and babies. You can read all about it here (my sister site that I am transitioning away from). I just wanted to streamline my username from Instagram to my blog, otherwise thismamareviews.com will always be my baby!

Being a stay at home and an over-tired mom, I felt the need to find a “mom-community” around me, but it was exhausting to do it physically. So I figured, why not share about my love for subscription boxes with the world, which I had started subscribing to, to keep my little 2 year old preoccupied. And that was my aha! moment. For which I am forever grateful!

It opened up unimaginably creative venues for a stay at home mama who was knee deep in poop. Thanks to the two little loves (at that time, my girls were 2 year old and 6 months old). So I was legit drowning in diapers, tantrums, and poop, lots of it. 🙂 But oh, how do I miss those times!

I digress, let me get back to how blogging changed my world. It turned out to be a place where I could just express myself how ever I wanted and even gave me a chance to form beautiful friendships with plenty of amazing moms while at it! I felt like I had found a sense of belonging on the most basic level, i.e. motherhood. And that turned out to be my community.

So here I am sharing with you all the fun things, the not-so-fun things and things that matter. And if you want a peek into my life a little bit more, then head over to my instagram where I am all about keeping things fun, honest and even sassy at times! 🙂

Hope you stick around!
