Q: What made you want to become a blogger?

  • A: I became a blogger a few years ago mainly to share my life story and to post some family stories over the regular blogger system. There are so many reasons as to why I wanted to become a blogger but the main reason was to use my blog as a journal. However after a year of having my blog and not truly using it I applied to work for a blog that did reviews. I had never heard of doing that and it was a huge commitment for myself, especially seeing as I was brand new to the world of mommy bloggers. After a year of contributing to that blog I decided it was time to branch out on my own and start my own blog. This time I figured I would purchase my own and go all out. My one year anniversary is coming up in February just after Valentine’s Day and I’m extremely excited!

Q: What sites or bloggers inspire you?

  • A: I am highly inspired by a bunch of different mommy bloggers. I would have to say The Review Wire, Lisa from Planet Weidknecht, It’s Peachy Keen and many others have inspired me to be a better blogger. They have been super supportive of helping other bloggers and to make sure everyone has fun. Plus, they are incredibly nice and outgoing!

Q: What is one thing you are most proud of as a blogger?

  • A: I must say I’m proud of the fact that I have been able to dive into owning my own blog and actually get it this far when I had no prior experience at all. I had no idea what I was doing and I’m incredibly thankful that I had other bloggers to help me out along the way. I definitely didn’t get here on my own other than getting my blog up and running myself. It’s been a great ride and I’m hoping to get my blog out there so more bloggers know about me!

Q: What is your favorite post you have written to date?

Q: Give us one random fact about YOU

  • A: I am OCD over everything and I usually have a panic attack if I don’t get many of my reviews and giveaways written on time (according to my calendar). I also go crazy when I can’t think of anything to write that is organic or evergreen (which is why I don’t have much evergreen content on my site, I’m horrible at it!).

Q: What advice would you give a new blogger?

  • A: I highly suggest any new blogger join some blogger groups on Facebook and do not feel embarrassed to ask as many questions as possible. Although I’m not a seasoned blogger I have been doing this for over 3 years and on my own for a year, I will always turn to my blogger friends to get some connections or to get a simple boost. Helping each other out is so incredibly important!
