About Ivona at Mom's Den

Welcome to my Patreon page!

If you've just landed here, there may be a few possible reasons why:

  • you've seen my YouTube content, guides and/or livestreams
  • you've been on Mom's Den blog
  • you've read one of my non-fiction books
Yep - I'm just one person doing all of that.

In the next few paragraphs, you'll find out a lot more about what it is that I do, and why your support means so much to me!

Author, vlogger & blogger: parenting non-fiction

I am the owner of Mom's Den, a parenting/lifestyle blog filled with informative and entertaining content about parenting life. I've been passion-writing for 15 years, but I've been fighting the urge to turn it into a business for the longest time. I used to be the victim of all the people telling me that writing should remain a hobby, I can't live and pay for the basic expenses with my writing and that no one appreciates writers as business people. What a load of nonsense!

I've decided to put aside the excuses and insecurities and start writing, because I know that's what I'm meant to do!

A few months into blogging, I realized I don't want to be just a blogger. I started writing parenting non-fiction books, and that's where I discovered my passion truly lies. My current titles are From Bottle To Bottle (a parenting memoir about life transformation), Solid Food 101 (a free guide on how to eat healthy during pregnancy, introduce solid food to your little one, and get kids to love food), and my third upcoming book on time management for parents and entrepreneurs (the title is still in the works!).

Another factor in my life has gotten me to the point where I realized this life is a great fit for me. A year and a half ago, I gave birth to a wonderful baby boy. Soon afterwards, I realized that being a stay-at-home mom limits all my previous ideas about career choices (I'm a graduated Biochemical Engineer, for all the people uninterested about my real passion). I decided to work on something that aligns perfectly with the role I currently have - a mother to this awesome human being!

This idea, as I soon realized, came along perfectly with my desire to write and turn my passion into a career. I've invested a significant amount of time into my self-improvement, learning about blog design, book writing, streaming, and social media marketing. From a stay-at-home mom with limited options, I've transformed myself into a full-time work-at-home mom, managing to maintain the quality of our family time, house work and all my projects!

Apart from the written word, I've also dedicated myself to creating useful parenting, time management, nutrition, and lifestyle content while telling you my whole story on my personal brand YouTube page. If you'd like to see my book's content, learn more about how I do what I do, and learn a bunch of helpful things about food safety, nutrition, and introducing solids in the correct way, find all of that here!

YouTube World of Warcraft content 

Apart from my author's career, I am incredibly passionate about gaming (World of Warcraft in general!), and after a lot of consideration, I decided to return to the content creation on YouTube under Mom's Den name and brand. I've done the impossible by merging my parenting content and community, with the quirky, silly, and passionate world of gaming. The result of this mix is a unique set of products and content suitable for gamers, parents, and parents who game (a huge part of my community that gives it an incredible, unique twist!). If you fall into any of those groups, you're bound to love my content!

Lately, my YouTube content hasn't only been there for me to make silly videos and vlogs - since the release of Shadowlands, the latest World of Warcraft expansion, I've been releasing a great amount of useful guides, while their mainly goal remains saving player's time and achieving easy wins. WoW has been overexplained for years now and for the longest time, I've been feeling like its content analysis needs to be more suitable for new players as well - which is where I step in! Apart from those awesome, short guides, I also do gaming livestreams with an AMA policy - so that I'm able to discuss both the gaming world and my role as a modern author and a parent with unique hobbies and passions.

If you've come this far - I'm sure we'll have a wonderful journey together.

I am very excited to finally share my content with you on Patreon. I've put a lot of thought into it, and I know I wouldn't be able to start without making it as good as I possibly can. I have many upcoming projects aimed to make your experience as my patron as great as possible!

I hope you will find my content as valuable as it is. My  Over 90% of my creative work is free (to use, but not to create!) and even though it generates passive income through blog traffic and a few affiliate links, it hasn't been enough to quite support the artistic lifestyle I've chosen for myself. 

I want to keep creating meaningful, engaging and helpful content - this is what I do best and I believe you, as my patron, recognize it - you wouldn't be here if you didn't! I appreciate you for it and I'm super thankful to have you with me on this journey! My patrons can help me create another significant stream of income, that I would use to invest into all the software I use as a blogger, author and content creator, improve my YouTube channel, streams and video guides, have enough money on a monthly basis to not have to look for work outside of home and think about daycare, as well as to create more valuable content.

In the meantime, feel free to explore all my social media - and don't hesitate to say hello!

Goals
$4.21 of $300 per month
When I reach $300 per month, I'll be able to:
  • outsource most of my technical work
  • spend more time writing and creating meaningful content
  • invest into better recording equipment
  • reach more people with my content through paid advertisement
You'll see a significant improvement in my content (I've already got a long list of necessary updates I'm ready to pursue) once the goal is reached. You'll love it!
