What people don’t realize about blogging is…
There’s SO much behind the scenes SEO work!
What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?
- How saturated the industry would get!
- How to code–good site design is very expensive.
- If in doubt, hire a professional photographer. It’s usually worth the money.
What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?
I was the featured blogger/personality for our local H&M opening! It was so much fun to get a peek behind the scenes at what it takes to pull off an event of that magnitude.
Give us your best tip for maintaining a blog work/life balance?
Schedule as much ahead of time as possible–you never know when you’ll need to take a sick/personal day or week for that matter.
Instagram or Twitter?
Coffee or tea?
Who is the most interesting person you’ve ever met?
I got to meet Brad Paisley back in 2006. He came to my hometown in Mississippi, and I got to show him around during our summer festival. He was so quick with his whit that I’ll never forget how much fun I had.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Oreos with festive fillings (love the Halloween orange!)
What’s one product you can’t live without?
I never leave home without a swipe of mascara. It’s the one beauty rule I swear by.
What’s your most memorable trip or vacation?
My husband and I met in London (he was a grad student there!), so I always enjoy our trips back to Europe. I love how close all the countries are. It’s easy to squeeze a few different destinations into one hop across the pond.
What’s been your favorite part of being a member of The Blog Societies?
My first TBScon was a game-changer. I made a TON of blogging friends, which has been such a blessing (not to sound corny). It’s nice to have people that I can reach out to and ask questions–the blogging friends I made at TBS Con share my values of the community over competition. You don’t find that every day.
