Alert!! Newbie @ large. My 1st Steemit post
Expat, wannabe blogger, amateur photographer, wine drinker, lover of all things beautiful, tryer of new things whenever I can and last, BUT not least, wife and mother of 2 beautiful children/almost grownups. Barreling my way towards ‘LIFE AFTER KIDS’ which is also the name of my blog; Karolien – There is life after kids! (finish reading and find an Easter egg.... 😋)
This is me!! 😍📸
MY PARTNER IN CRIME; Hubby is a captain of a commercial fishing boat in Mauritius and is known to be away from home anything from 15-18 days or even up to 3-6 months. It’s a harsh life but I love him. What can I say….I decided I will keep him. It's been 24 years and counting after all... 😊 Life is often hard but never boring.

THE KIDS 😍
19 year old daughter whom is an avid horse-rider and a 17 year old ps4 addict… ;p I can only say I have the bestest kids in the world. Ask any of my friends or family. 😉

THE X-MAN(nickname) 👦
WHAT DO I DO 😏
Worked as a teacher for about 7,5 years. HOBBIES apart from the obvious blogging and photography includes anything from woodworking with my skill-saw to making cement pots from scratch.
My woodwork and cement pots 😁
KIDS ARE ALL GROWN UP... NOW WHAT? 🤔
Having my kids almost all grown up I now have time to explore and THOROUGHLY enjoy new hobbies and experiences which I blog about on [my WEBSITE] (https//www.karolien-thereslifeafterkids.com) as a total wannabe blogger…love writing but wish I knew more about monetizing my skills! Something which I’m hoping to learn about here as well.

SOME OF MY PHOTOS 📸😎
Sort of a jane of all trades, mistress of none…that’s me. 😊
I’m a South African currently residing in Mauritius. Although my husband has been here nearly 3 years my children and I only moved here December 2018.
WHERE I LIVE
We have lived in a lot of places in SA, living it up from coast to coast, moving to Mauritius was our 19th move in 17 years so I’m a bit of a moving expert. I’m pretty sure Mauritius is not our last stop. 😊
MY MAP 🗺
MY WOMANING101 APP
I even have an app in the Google App store called Womaning101….Still deciding where I am going with that. I was a bit of a late bloomer and discovered blogging and technology at the tender age of 40. 😅 I love thinking up stuff but my business acumen suck. 😜
I am very excited to be here as I have a love/hate relationship with social media. Love it for the exposure it gives for my blogs and amateur photographic journey, but I HATE it for the trolls it brings. When I heard!
about Steemit and did some research into it, it seemed like my kind of platform. All about positive vibes. ✌️😍
I AM STILL A BIT LOST with all the do’s and don’ts and figuring out how to negotiate my way on here, but you all seem like a nice enough bunch of people supporting one another which warms my heart and gives me hope for this undertaking. 😊
I would love to grow my blog and monetize my passions. Steemit seems like a good place to start. I would love some followers and new connections whom I can follow back. [My FB LINK] (https://www.facebook.com/karolien.thereslifeafterkids/)
