When and why did you start blogging?
I started blogging back in ummm 2000? 2001? I wrote about daily college life with a few others. I’ve had a few different blogs since then. I maintained a successful gaming blog for a few years. It’s always been a fun hobby and outlet for me!
What do you blog about? At TFTN I blog about being a first time mom. I talk about breastfeeding, cloth diapers, products and I love giveaway events!
What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it? My hubby supports it (he’s my developer) and a few family members read it. Sometimes they don’t like the personal stuff so much.
When do you find the time to blog? Late at night while everyone else is sleeping, usually! During naps I try to do bloggy chores if possible. Off and on throughout the day I tend to email, Twitter, and Facebook via my phone. I sometimes am able to blog a bit from it too.
What is your favorite blog post ever? I think one of my favorite personal posts is about my constant struggle with my self-image: Learning to Love Me
What is the best advice or knowledge that you have found? Be true to yourself, disclose! and give credit where credit is due.
What advice would you give a new blogger? Read other blogs. Don’t just follow but actually read them and comment on them. You’ll learn a lot and they’ll inspire you too.
What widget or feature could you not live without? My husband
