Money Making Mums Blogger Interview: Danielle from Someone's Mum

Posted on

Every Friday I invite other bloggers and money making mums to share the ways busy parents can make money from home.  These are real life people making a living from home who can share their experience with us and inspire us.  If you’d like to feature in this series with a guest post of a relevant topic or you’d like to take part in the interview, please do get in touch or find the interview questions by clicking here.

I love making money from home.  As a busy mum to two young children, working from home for myself provides me with the flexibility I need to care for my children and avoid high full time childcare costs.  It also means I get to do what I love.  I’m an advocate of earning money online and from apps.  I’m always looking for new ways to make more income from home and hope to be inspired by the many people in this interview series.

Enjoy.

Danielle Someones Mum

Welcome, tell me a little about who you are, where you’re from and introduce your blog. 

My name is Danielle Duggins and I blog at Someone's Mum

Tell me, how do you make money from home?

Through the blog and social channels.

What makes it suitable for mums?

I am my own boss and I work from home.

What are three benefits of working at home?

I can set my own timetable. I can always drop everything if the children need me. I can work in my PJs!

What are three negatives?

It can be very difficult to divide work and home life. You are always 'at work' in a way.

If you could only pick one, working from home or going to an employed job for the rest of your life, which would you pick?

Working from home.

People say they find it hard to be productive working alone at home. What keeps you motivated?

I am passionate about working on the blog and I find the creativity extremely rewarding.

Do you have a favourite quote to keep you inspired?

I don't really do inspirational quotes. I prefer to write my own words.

What words of wisdom can you share with mums looking to make their own income from home?

Working from home requires just as much time and probably more effort than a traditional job, but the benefits outweight this when you create something that is entirely yours and allows you peace of mind and flexibility.

Not a mum?  No worries!  This guest series is all about inspiring parents to earn their own income and realising they have more than two choices of going out to an employed job or being a stay at home parent. 

Of course if you choose to do either of those options that's absolutely fine, no judgement here, but lots of mums, like me, didn't realise there was another way to make money by the many self-employed options available nowadays.  If you earn from home, parent or not, and it's suitable for parents then you can take part.
