I was given a few questions from Corrine to answer in receiving this award…
What Is Your Biggest Inspiration For Blogging?
Uhhh….Martha Stewart. Haha seriously? I guess what inspires me most are my goals. When I think about my destination I am motivated and inspired to proceed. Every successful person started with one single step. It’s when you keep taking those steps that you get to where you want to be.
What Is Your Favorite Activity To Do With Your Children?
My favorite thing to do with my boys is turn on square dancing music and chase them through the house. I really enjoy dancing with them and being silly. We’re a loud family and have the most fun when we can be crazy. I noticed that when my kids are allowed to be crazy and silly, they are more willing to listen when I need them to be calm.
What Is Your Favorite Blog Post That You’ve Written? Why?
It’s really hard to pick one. I think my favorite post is the one about heaven. We only have so much time here and it’s easy to get caught up in life, and not think about what will happen when we die. So my post about how to know 100% that you’ll go to heaven is my favorite. It is the most important thing to share and write about. The bible commands us to spread and share the gospel.
What Is Your Biggest Difficulty That You Face In Blogging?
I smile as I write this, my biggest difficulty is distractions. Trying to focus with constant noise from my kids is hard. My phone is also always buzzing trying to lure me away from working. It is really hard to be focused when the world around you is loud and asking for your attention.
What Is One Piece Of Advice You’d Give To A New Blogger?
For the new blogger I say, write down one goal for your blog. Decide whether that goal is blogging for fun, or for money. How you work and build your blog depends on your end goal. If it is for fun, then just have fun and don’t be stressed about posting regularly. But if you plan to make money from it at all, then you need to eat, sleep and breathe blogging. It is a full-time job and it doesn’t pay well until you have enough reasons (posts) for people to visit it.
