I'm just a normal teenager who had sex and is now living with the responsibility of having a baby. I am 18 years old and a freshman in college where I received a full academic scholarship.

My sons are my world. Follow me in my journey...

Lindsey is a winner of Top 25 Mom Vlogs - 2013

Where do you find vlogging inspiration?

My vlogging inspiration comes from my family and of coarse what my viewers want to see. I remember very vividly how lonely it is to be a teen parent. I want to let people who find themselves in this situation that there is hope of still becoming a successful person despite what statistics tries to tell them. I also am trying to create some upcoming vlogs with more advice and education about prevention.

What tips would you give a mom who wants to start video blogging?

I would tell them to go read my blog that I just wrote (lindsandbaby.blogspot.com) where I answered this question in detail. In short I would say make sure you have thick skin and a long fuse lol. People can be cruel BUT the good that you receive can and will outweigh the bad. The mom community is an amazing support system and you can make great friends there. I would say if you are really passionate about the idea GO FOR IT.

My best tips are:

1. Pay attention to your background in your videos. (Clean, pleasing to the eye)
2. Have good lighting
3. Do not put up any video you wouldn't watch yourself
4. Do the videos that people look for (what's in my diaper bag, mommy tags, pregnancy vlogs)
5. Upload videos at least weekly
6. Do not take the mean comments to heart.

How do you balance vlogging and motherhood?

Being a full time college student and a mom of a toddler and an infant and a vlogger/blogger is extremely hard. I sleep little and I have an amazing support system.
Do not be afraid to ask for help.
