Hi Jordan! What’s the name of your blog?
Where are you from?
Tell us a little about you and your blog and what you mostly blog about?
I’m Jordan Lee with Jordan Lee + Three, where designer taste meets a stay at home mom budget! I thrive on finding affordable deals on fashion, beauty and home finds!
Give us your best tip to staying on top of the blog/work/life balance?
Consistency is key, but also finding a balance between work life (for me- mom life) and blog life is hard! I block time for my blog and only work during those hours!
Fill in the blank. What people don’t realize about blogging is…
That it’s not all free stuff and selfies! It’s actual work!
What are three things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?
- Know your worth

What skills and qualities do you think are necessary for a successful and professional blogger?
Dedication & honesty!
What has blogging taught you/given you that no other career or job has before?
An outlet to really reach people doing what I love the most!
What’s one piece of advice you would give to someone just starting out in the blog world?
Slow and steady wins the race! You aren’t going to blow up overnight! Just be true to yourself and what you want to accomplish and you’ll find your way!

What is your main focus, blog or Instagram?
What makes your brand different than other bloggers?
I don’t do sponsored (paid) ads for things I do not already use in daily life!
What topic do you most enjoy writing about?
What would your dream partnership look like? From the brand, the content, all of it! Dream up your perfect collaboration.
I would LOVE to create a curated clothing line with my favorite boutique, Jules & James, and focus on pieces fish are timeless and year-round! Having a collection that can last all seasons and go from casual to date night would be my dream!
What is a current blogging goal you are working on?
I’m truly trying to focus on fully understanding SEO and how to build a successful and engaging blog!
What does a typical workday for you look like?
I typically have all things mom life from about 7-10 and from 10-11 I engage with followers on social, post content, create content. While my kiddos nap I’m answering emails and planning out the rest of my week! In the evenings it’s all mom life!
What’s your most recent WIN with your blog?
Being recognized by the Like To Know it Home account as home of the week!
What is one thing in the blogging industry that frustrates you that you wish you could change?
The “number requirement”. It’s like brands focus too much on followers and like count and not about the audience the Influencer is reaching! Someone could have 100K followers and not a single one of those followers truly cares about what that person is talking about!
How has your content changed since you first started blogging?
I feel like I’m sharing more about what I love instead of what’s a hot topic!
