When did you start blogging?
About a year ago – I’d been wanting to write more, and it was a way to have “external motivation,” as a friend calls it, to get writing!
Tell us about what kind of blog you have and what made you decide to run a blog like this?
Not yet – I want to some day!
Currently a couple of times a week. I’d like to be posting about every other day.
For absolutely sure, Snippets From Suburbia. I also love Pioneer Woman, and Turquoise Gates is a blog I would beg every woman I know to read!
Have your readers influenced you in any way?
YES!!! Comments in response to what I write challenge me to re-think what I so passionately pour out. I’m encouraged to look at things differently, and I am encouraged to keep going!
Abso-schmootly! Blogging has made me more aware of everyday moments, because I’m thinking about how I’ll chronicle them. I think it also challenges me to see “deeper” into everyday events, in hopes that what I see will resonate with someone.
Sleep! (But not much.) I love to read, too… I’m a fiction (I like Christian fiction, historical fiction, and I read a ton of devotional and photography books!) junkie, and I am a blog junkie. It’s often when I’m reading other bloggers that I’m inspired to write about a topic from my own perspective.
Write, write, and write! Read what others write. I think the “blog revolution” (is that a real phrase?) is such a phenomenon largely because it connects us to others we might never meet. When we read about others’ experiences, whether they’re familiar to us or shockingly different, it challenges us to “go deeper” into our own life experience. A good friend challenged me once, “When life gets really hard, imagine it like a music video, with awesome music playing as the scenes go by.” Blogging helps me do that – when I read what I’ve written, I reflect, and my focus is on the sweetness of it all!
Would you like to be my next victim-er, I mean interview? Comment on this post and I will stalk you and peek in your windows to watch your family eat dinner just like the Australian guy that follows that gecko character -Or, I'll just send you an email with a list of interview questions for you to answer.
