Tell us more about you and your blog
I created this space to be a place where we could be honest about the good things and the hard things. From light-hearted fun to beauty products to deeper heart struggles, in order to share snapshots of things we relate on. It’s about connecting on the small daily things, so there’s a bridge to encourage hope in the big things. All while getting excited about new trends, good style, and traveling my heart out!
What people don’t realize about blogging is…
It’s a lot of work! From the idea, to setting up shoots, sitting down to edit and write and post and promote, etc.
What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?
- It’s a continual learning process
- It’s an investment! To set up a website and create worth-while content, attending events or conferences
- How it can bring girls together. The amount of conversations I’ve had just because of blogging! It’s so sweet to have something that’s a joy for a lot of people, whether they are a fellow writer or a reader. I love that part.
What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?
Being invited to stay and review The Graduate hotel! I was geeking out the whole time, no shame! Such an honor and such a highlight for sure.
Give us your best tip for maintaining a blog work/life balance
GRACE. Especially for those of us who don’t get to blog full-time! It’s been important for me to remember balance looks different for everyone, and I’ll have busier months than others when my blog may have to be quieter. And that’s OK! Because I’m still doing it out of a real love for it and for the community that comes with it.
Instagram or Twitter?
Coffee or tea?
What is your guilty pleasure?
What’s one product you can’t live without?
Aveeno Daily Lotion – it sounds too simple but when it comes down to it, I would be devastated if they ever discontinued it!
What’s been your favorite part of being a member of The Blog Societies?
Probably back to the beginning for me, the day I got to put the TBS blog member button on my sidebar. I felt like a real official blogger!
