Blogger Explains Why Motherhood ‘Sucks

Tova Leigh loves her three daughters more than anything. But this morning, the London-based blogger needed a smash from all the combating. So she sneaked into the restroom, locked the door, and had a good cry.

As I sat right down to drink my tea (after preparing breakfast for listening to my three beautiful ladies bicker over something its miles that children can go on and on approximately I felt the tears coming,” Leigh commented in an Instagram post posted on Thursday, August 31. “I am simply so tired. Tired of trying. Tired of the guilt, uninterested in the fighting, and tired of being a person’s something.


The months-antique went on to confess that so many dads and moms can relate to: “I simply need to be me for five minutes, alone in my bed below the covers, and not pay attention to the moaning and complaining and the phrase ‘MOMMY’ each second.

She delivered, “No one tells you approximately the moments you will need to bash your face against the wall due to the fact your cute toddler (who’s also evil) refuses to move back into mattress at four a.M. Because she wants to ‘play now.’) After her kids left the desk “still bickering,” Leigh retreated to the toilet, where she sat there “feeling sorry” for herself. “Boy does this motherhood enterprise suck sometimes. I imply it’s the most AMAZING component ever, and I wouldn’t alternate it for the arena,” she shared. “But it f—ing sucks once in a while. It f—ing sucks!

The comments poured in. “I have days like this, and I always wonder if I’m alone in feeling this manner,” wrote one commenter. Added another:” Big hugs? I recognize what you suggest: you can’t pee in peace ??, you can’t shower in peace, you cannot even sleep in peace maximum times.

Leigh, a mother of a 6-year-old and four-year-old twins, tells Us Weekly her husband came to the rescue. “I told him how I felt, and he took the ladies out so I could cross again to sleep,” she says. “These moments manifest to us mothers while we experience like we can’t cross on. And then we have those exceptional moments that make all of it worthwhile. That’s motherhood.

I have been passionate about blogging for quite some time, and those who know me well have witnessed me start and end many blogs over the years. My journey to becoming a blogger has been an endless journey of trial and error, and to be quite honest, it still is.


When I first started blogging, I thought all I needed to do was pick a topic to write about, sit down at my computer, and let the words flow freely from my mind to my fingertips. I quickly learned that wasn’t how blogging worked. I struggled with my writing because I didn’t know what I wanted to write about, and eventually, I lost the momentum to continue blogging. I would ask myself, “Why is this so hard for me? I love to write, so this should be a breeze. Plus, there are so many blogs out there. If other people can do it easily, why can’t I?”

But finally, I learned – through my many attempts at blogging – that to be a successful blogger, one must plan and follow a formula. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all formula for blogging because each blog is unique. Every blogger will have their writing style, purpose, and reason behind blogging about a particular topic.

Blogging is more than just a creative outlet to express your ideas, thoughts, and feelings, especially if you want to build a following of actively engaged readers. For many, blogging can be tricky to grasp – it certainly was for me. I didn’t know where to start, what to focus on, and how to conclude until I came up with my blog writing formula, which goes a little something like this:

Connect emotionally & address your target audience’s goal/desire.

Never underestimate the power of emotions – the stronger the emotional need, the more likely people will want to read your work. I use my own emotions and desires as tools for writing my blog posts. Let’s use this post as an example: As an aspiring writer who has started many not-so-successful blogs – and is creating yet another new blog – I want to overcome the struggle and strain of writing a new blog post.

Most importantly, I wanted to tap into the emotions of other aspiring writers/bloggers struggling with this issue. I considered what the desire of an aspiring blogger might be, which is to write a blog post easily. I then provided value to my readers by suggesting using a blog writing formula to help them construct and write a new position with ease. So, as you can see, I have connected emotionally by sharing my struggles with beginning to blog and addressing their overall goal/desire – being able to blog.

Provide a solution to a problem with actionable advice. People are always searching the internet for content and advice that will help solve their problems; why not tap into that and focus your blog post on solving a problem or addressing a need? For example, this vlog post discusses how beginner bloggers can easily write a blog post and overcome writer’s block. People reading this are presumably new to blogging and have struggled with writing content for their blog – this post provides them with a solution to that problem.

When writing a post to solve a problem, give your readers advice that they can take away with them and put into action. If you can provide people with advice they can implement and it works, they will most likely want to come back and learn more from you.


Provide value in your content. Give your readers something worth reading about. Your work isn’t over after you have finished writing your latest post; there’s plenty more to be done. Your readers must be assured that you always have their interests in mind and are dedicated to helping them solve a problem. Let them know what else they will be learning from you in the future or what other resources they can access; you can even give them free resources you’ve created to help them.
