Tell us more about you and your blog

I started my blog when I was in a rut at my job and in desperate need for a creative outlet. What started as a digital journal, slowly evolved into a lifestyle and food blog. Between my Denver City Guide, recipes, housing projects, travel recaps and stories about my two small children, South on Broadway has become a destination for daily inspiration.

What people don’t realize about blogging is…

     There is a great community of inspiring, supportive + connected people who want to help raise you up.

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

  1. Authenticity is so important.
  2. A lot of people buy their following and it’s hard to not be envious of the perceived success they have.
  3. Finding your voice takes some time but is worth the effort and time to do so.

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

I spent a day cooking a multi-course Spring Dinner with a fellow Denver food blogger that was then picked up by a top Colorado grocery chain. We got some great feedback but more than anything, I just loved how great the content, photography and recipes turned out. It was one of the most collaborative posts I had done and I am still incredibly proud of what we created.

What’s been your favorite post you’ve worked on?

I brought a group of girlfriends with me to visit a small mountain town a couple hours outside of Denver. It was the best staycation with my favorite people but it was also a mix of business and pleasure. I was visiting the hotel we stayed at, The Amigo Motor Lodge as part of my Denver City Guide. The weekend was insanely photogenic, the company was perfection and I got to feed my travel-bug.
