Making a baby’s now a million-dollar business for some – but how do you turn ‘sharenting’ into a career?
Ashley Wilson, 21.5k followers Mum to: Vivienne, 2 ½, and a baby girl due in March
I have no steadfast rules when it comes to being an Insta mum, but think it’s so important to remember that as soon as you hit ‘share’ you have no control over who sees your pictures. My recent bump photo had over 130,000 views, which is a lot of people looking at my big belly.
I’m high street through and through so Zara’s about as extravagant as I’ve ever gone, price-wise, with outfits for Vivienne. I found these amazing ‘Troublemaker’ matching mini-me jackets in River Island recently that I had to buy. We don’t tend to match though as she’s well and truly into pink right now.
ON What she WON’T show
Over-sharenting can be an issue but the great thing about social media is that it’s up to the individual to decide what they follow and read. If you want to watch a live birth via Facebook you can, but you don’t have to. I touch upon personal topics if I think it can help people. When you’ve had a bad day, the kind words of other Insta mums can help lift your spirits.
