Inspiring Homemaker: Sangeetha Menon, IT Professional and Blogger @ ‘Bumps n Baby ’

As promised, we are kicking off our brand new feature in this blog - Homemaker's Lounge, 'Inspiring Homemakers'!  In this series, we will be featuring a homemaker who will share with us, her life and times...

Today, I am extremely excited to feature Sangeetha Menon of 'Bumps n Baby'! Some of you may already know her well. She is a career woman, a doting mom and a lovely wife who wears many hats in her stride.

Here is Sangeetha, sharing her story!

How would you like other homemakers to know you? Please tell us a little about yourself?

I am Sangeetha Menon, a mom who loves to play hide and seek with her 1.5 year old daughter the moment she is back home in the evening after her 9-12 hours of job. I blog about my experiences of motherhood  at Bumps n Baby where in I try to write about A to Z of motherhood and everything associated.

How do you manage to strike balance between career and family?

Time management is an important aspect in a working mom's life. My day starts at 4.30 AM everyday followed by blogging, cooking, cleaning and getting ready to office. Back home in the evening the same routine is followed along with time for my hubby and daughter.

What is the toughest challenge that you face day to day?

To be frank, I don't find any challenge in my life as a working mom as I am able to manage both my personal and professional life in a good way. Its mainly because we have cut down on my travelling time to office by renting a house nearby my office. I believe after the initial days, things will slowly start falling in place.
I believe almost all working moms commute 2-3 hours daily to their workplaces everyday!

What motivates you and what do you find rewarding in your role as a blogger?

My prime motivation is my readers. If I don't post a day , they ask me out why and how come I missed out. I love catering to them.

Obviously blog stats and money are also factors of motivation. But if you have loyal reader base I believe good stats and money will start flowing  with time :)


What are your plans for 2014, both on professional and personal front?

2014 will be a year I would be looking forward both as a mom as well as a blogger. I have made 5 resolutions and will try to stick to it. (Go figure! New Year's Resolutions )

What advice would you give to the modern homemakers, on sustaining their daily grind?

If you want to work post baby ask yourself if you are ready to handle the initial risks associated. Other than the 9 -5 jobs there are other work from home options like blogging, e commerce ventures, online boutique stores, freelancing etc where in you can earn too along with passion.

All it needs is the faith and confidence in YOU !!
