Tell us more about you and your blog

I started my blog as a creative outlet when I decided to stay at home with my boy full time. It has been a great way to connect with other incredibly talented women, as well as to have something fun that I get to do for myself to be proud of (other than my family of course!).

What people don’t realize about blogging is…

     There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes. It is fun work, but hours of work can go into just one blog post!

What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?

  1. It is very time consuming
  2. There are a ton of other people trying to be successful at it as well, so make sure you don’t compare yourself to everyone else’s journey
  3. Don’t be afraid of hearing or saying “no”

What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?

My bother is a photographer, so anytime we get to shoot together for my blog it is so special to have our two worlds collide.

Give us your best tip for maintaining a blog work/life balance

It is so important to plan out your week ahead of time. It makes it so much easier if you put in a few hours on the weekend (or nap time in my case). This way you have posts and content scheduled at your peak times of engagement throughout the week. I have had to learn that life happens and you can’t get everything organized the way you would like. So if I get off one week, I try not to stress out about it, but just get back on track the next week!

What’s your most memorable trip or vacation?

I took a two week trip through Europe and visited 6 different countries when I was in college. I wish I could relive it all over again!
