Sunday Social #55

What is the name of your blog?

What do you love most about blogging?

I truly do love being part of this amazing and supporting community, when things started to go a little sour for me MANY of my readers and fellow bloggers showed me their love and support through encouraging comments and emails. And to me that's what blogging is all about. Getting to share my story with others in the hopes that I will inspire others and also that hopefully others will learn from my successes and mistakes.

Why did you start blogging?

At first I thought, why not? I have a computer, I am a decent writer, so why not give it a try? But as time passed by I realized that I truly did enjoy blogging. It's something different, it helps my creative juices flow, and I can express myself without a care in the world.

What is something you’d want to tell someone just starting out in the blog world?


Be YOU. As a newbie you are exposed to sooo many blogs and bloggers, you may like someone's style of writing, or you may like what they share, and there is nothing wrong with that. But you gotta find your OWN voice and share your OWN thoughts and feelings. There is nothing worse than a copycat. We bloggers do not appreciate it, you gotta give credit where credit is due and not steal anyone else's content or ideas. There is nothing wrong with asking for help or just simply asking questions to a blogger with more years of experience.

Biggest blogging learning experience you’ve had?

Don't sweat the small stuff. I remember my first ever giveaway. I honestly had no idea what to do and it took me HOURS to figure it out. But even after that I was freaking out because I didn't know if I had done it right. Later on I realized that EVERYONE makes mistakes, whether it is on their spelling, or their rafflecopter, etc. etc.

What are three blogs you love?

My Three Bittles 

You can't get any more real than Amber and her FamBam. Like seriously, she shares the good and the bad things about her life. And that's the kind of blogger I think EVERYONE should be like!

Living Yellow

Who doesn't love this blog? I mean I know that we all secretly wish we could switch places with Erin and live her fabulous life, but I truly do love her blog. When I read her blog, she writes it in a way that it makes me think that we are friends having a cup of coffee and she is just telling me about her day. I am dead serious.

The Chiffon Diary

Nicholl is just fabulous and I wish I had her closet. Her sense of style is AMAZING!
