Tell us more about you and your blog

Home of Malones is a lifestyle blog that was started in 2012 when my husband and I moved back to our hometown of Pensacola. We got married, found out we were pregnant and started building our new home. We squeezed a lot into one year and I’m so happy I was able to document it all. That is how “Home of Malones” was born.

What people don’t realize about blogging is…

it’s a very time-consuming hobby or business and if it’s something you want to start, make sure you absolutely love doing it without every being paid a penny!

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

1. How Time Consuming it Is!

2. I wish I had mad Photography Skills before I started.

3. I also wish I had taken Graphic Design classes in college so I could make great visuals for my blog.

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

The best tip is to try to have designated times for each department. I stay at home with my kids, so when I try to mix time with my kids with blogging; we all end up frustrated. But if I designate specific blog time away from my kids, then I can give my kids 100% when I’m with them.
