It’s amazing how social media can help people express their ideas instantaneously and push them to follow their passions… all within a single and simple platform. Nowadays, many moms are sharing their life journeys, experiences, and passions through different theme-based blogs. Fit’n Style Magazine met up with Rita Lamah who is a mom, a TV presenter, and the fashion blogger behind LifeandStyleandco.com.
What is the best thing a mother can do when raising her child?
The best thing is to be involved in everything while still respecting a child’s autonomy.
What’s your ultimate secret to balancing career and family?
I can’t deny feeling the guilt, but luckily I master my own time and schedule to a certain extent. Focusing on a plan and getting organized is definitely a key aspect.
When and how did you start blogging?
I started with a food blog back in 2011, which was a trial phase to my new blog. Life&Style&Co was launched in October 2012 covering fashion topics mainly, while also writing about lifestyle, motherhood, child-related posts, recipes I try at home, and anything else that inspires or interests me.
How does social media help you to express your thoughts and opinions?
Social media is an open diary; everyone can express and share whatever they feel or think. It definitely helps me to post what I feel is worth sharing; however we should not forget that while people are sharing their happy moments, this does only reflect a small part of their lives.
How relevant is feedback?
The best thing I receive from readers who follow my advice is positive feedback, especially when it comes to my styling tips and advice.
What advice can you offer moms who would like to join the blogging sphere?
Have fun with your blog… it’s yours! Blog about what you are passionate about, and most importantly, do not compare yourself to other bloggers. The nice aspect about blogging is that each one has its own style, and each blogger sees things differently.
