What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?
My favorite memory is the first time I ever reached out to local brands to team up for a fun giveaway. I was so nervous and negative in my mind about what their responses would be, and I ended up pleasantly surprised. You never know until you ask, and I am so glad I have reached out to local brands/companies in my city. It has helped me meet amazing female entrepreneurs and create relationships that have been so fun!
Give us your best tip for maintaining a blog work/life balance
Writing everything out on to-do lists and calendars have been a savior for me! Sometimes I’m scattered and not as organized, but writing it all down has helped my mind tremendously by being able to stay on top of things. I have lists for all sorts of things: blog topic ideas, photo shoot ideas, press to-do lists/contacts and content planning.

Coffee or tea?

What’s been your favorite post you’ve worked on?
My favorite post I have written is one on what I learned the first 5 months of motherhood! It was the first time I got personal on my blog and put myself out there to be vulnerable as a new mom.
