I’ve been blogging for over eight years. MIS started as a place for me to document my life and interests at the time, essentially a hobby blog. Fast forward to today and not much has changed on that front. I’m still very much a hobby blogger, but now my focus is more on motherhood than anything else.
I never really tried to figure out the business side of blogging and how to turn my little piece of the internet into a money-making machine. I was never (and still am not) very good at marketing myself and/or MIS. I don’t like being in anyone’s face, so I just assumed the people who wanted/needed to find me would. LOL! And as far as income is concerned, I make a VERY VERY modest amount from MIS. Like so modest that Vishnu has no clue what I make on monthly basis. Ha!
With that being said, I made the decision earlier this week to donate all of MIS’ advertising income to a new charity every month!
Again, it’s important to note that this isn’t a huge sum of money, but I’m excited to do what I can with what I have/earn!
I was inspired to do this by Modi Toys co-founder Avani Sarkar. I figured if she, a full-time corporate working mom, wife, and entrepreneur, can do all that she does and run multiple Modi Joy charity events every year, I can surely do my part.
Vishnu and I donate to a number of organizations over the course of the year, but I really want my little hobby blog to stand for something more. I want my readers to feel like they’re a part of something bigger with me! Sure, reading my antics is fun (or so I hope!), but how much more fun would it be knowing that your 1-3 minutes of MIS reading was contributing to a cause? 😊
SOOOO…the first organization I’ll be donating to is March of Dimes. I volunteered with MoD in college and have always loved and appreciated what they do for moms and babies. This statement really encapsulates it well!
March of Dimes fights for the health of all moms and babies. We’re advocating for policies to protect them. We’re working to radically improve the health care they receive. We’re pioneering research to find solutions. We’re empowering families with the knowledge and tools to have healthier pregnancies. By uniting communities, we’re building a brighter future for us all.
So I hope you’ll continue to support me and spread the word about MIS because every click, pageview, shout out, etc. counts, and together I know we’re going to give back to some awesome organizations!
As always, thank you for taking the time to read here and follow my life/thoughts. I don’t think I’ll ever fully be able to show how much it means to me but just know it’s a lot! LOTS OF LOVE!
