This blog is about motherhood after infertility. My journey through infertility is documented on the blog, as well as having information and resources to deal with this predicament.
The blog also tracks my own parenthood journey through pregnancy, having a baby and dealing with a toddler. Developmental stages and interesting things I have noticed along the way are shared. I am especially interested in the educational aspect of development since I used to be a Montessori teacher.
The odd review and giveaway are published as part of my desire to create an income with my writing and to share products that I find interesting.
I am also the creator of a blogroll of South African mom bloggers, SA Mom Blogs. I have been working hard to connect South African moms on this network since April 2014 and have a twitter account that is automatically linked to posts on both blogs, plus a Facebook group. The twitter account is very active because other mom bloggers use the handle to promote their posts. In effect, by publishing on One Step at a Time, you will also get the SA Mom Blog audience as well.
I have a combination of both USA mothers and infertility survivors plus South Africans as well.
Example statistics: (July 2015)
South African – 63%, USA – 18%, UK 5%, Other – 14%.
After blogging for more than four years my main source of traffic is actually searches. I get anything from people wanting to know what is inside the Discovery baby bag to others wanting to find someone else who got pregnant just before IVF. Lots of Banting people responded to the Banting and Fertility post because it also included pregnancy and breastfeeding risks. I also comment on a lot of other blogs and use social media which also brings in traffic.
