Words with a Blogger Wednesday

Words with a Blogger Wednesday!
Today's blogger is Alicia from
Take it away, Yaya!

My name is Alicia but my nickname is "Yaya". My main blog is Yaya Stuff ( I'm a nanny and I also teach a workshop for children with Tourette Syndrome, plus I clean offices on the weekends.
My husband and I are currently going through the adoption process AND fertility treatments to try and have children.

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in May 2008.

Do you make money from your blog?
I don't make money from my blog but I do have a Chipin account for donations to our adoption fund. We are currently holding our second raffle ticket giveaway.

How frequently do you post?
I post about 4 times a week on average, or whenever the mood strikes!

Do you have a favorite blogger(s) that you just can't live without reading?
I have blogs that I faithfully visit because they are either personal friends of mine or have been visiting my blog since its beginning. Those are:
The Kirnan Crib (
Jeanne's Endo Blog (
K Is.... (
Ranney Days (

And then I have blogs that just make me smile like:

Perpetual Burn (
Pulsipher Predilections (

Okay, I'm gonna stop listing blogs since I visit about 100 blogs a day, so my list could be endless!

Have your readers influenced you in any way?
My readers have influenced my outlook on my situation in life. We are an infertile couple dealing with multiple pregnancy losses and it's hard to keep the hope up, but my readers have been really inspirational and encouraging to me.

Has blogging changed your life in any way?
Blogging has helped me raise more awareness about Infertility and Pregnancy and Infant Loss. These are topics that are often ignored in our culture and it is unfortunate that so many women feel they need to go through such things alone.

What do you do when you get writer's block?
I usually just post a cute picture!

Any other advice you might have for newbie bloggers?
Newbie bloggers. Visit blogs and comment!
Thanks, Alicia!
