Thanks so much to Mar at to & fro for linking to SnapGinger on her Tour Through Blogland. This is such a fun concept! Now, to the burning questions that everyone wants answered!
What are you working on now?
I am putting the finishing touches on my photos, crafts, recipes and other projects for my Home for the Holidays series. Every Monday leading up to Christmas, I will have a new post for you full of Holiday crafts, gifts, ideas and all the trimmings! Follow along with me to make your Christmas beautiful, easy and fun! Keep an eye out for it, coming soon to a Snappy blog near you 😉
How does your work differ from others in its genre?
My favorite posts to write (and read) are useful tutorials, round-ups, recipes and tips. I spend a log of time scouring Pinterest and my fave sites to find any new ideas I can. I am always trying new things at home, so I like to share what I have found to be the best and easiest in my own experience. If I don’t think the post is useful or beautiful, I won’t publish it. I don’t find my personal life enthralling enough to write more candid posts than weekend round-ups, and there are bloggers out there doing that so well, writing hilarious posts that I can’t compete with. Sparing you is my small contribution to my corner of the web. 😉
Why do you write/create what you do?
I love having the creative outlet that my blog allows me, and I love sharing new and useful ideas with as many people as I can. Whether my post contains a quick tutorial, a yummy recipe, some housewifey tips or a new fashion or beauty brand, I can’t wait to post it and share it. I want everyone to have a good experience with a product I’ve used or a recipe I’ve made, and often I’m antsy to hit publish and get a post out there!
How does your writing/creative process work?
I keep a blog planner (an amazing one that I won from Plum Paper Designs) which helps me to lay out my month in advance. I use colored mini post its from the dollar store to classify my posts into my 4 general content topics: Beauty, Recipes, Entertaining, Home. This way I can tell if one week might be too heavy on beauty tips, I will try to spread those out and include a recipe to keep it interesting! I write whenever I can, life and a full time job don’t allot me as much time as I would like for blogging. But I make it work! And I make it fun!
Here are your next stops, keep the Tour Through Blogland going and visit these wonderful bloggers!
