Love your pictures on Instagram – what camera do you use? I use a Samsung Galaxy S5 with a mix of apps – VSCO Cam, Rhonna Designs and A Beautiful Mess.
Love your pictures on your blog – what camera do you use?
I traded in my Canon and now have a Samsung NX30 that I’m super in love with.
I recently upgraded to a Canon 60D and love my 50mm f/1.8 – I rarely edit photos taken with my camera but when I have to resize and add text, I use PicMonkey.
I can’t believe you have four sons, how old are you? How old were you when you had your first child?
I just turned 40 in August. I was almost 22 when I had Ty. I’m old.
What kind of blogger are you?
I can tell you what I’m not – fitness, green, reviews, giveaways, sweeps. Not that there’s anything wrong with those types of bloggers… I happen to be a mom who loves life. My kids are the biggest part of my life so you’ll always see family posts but new things, art, travel, food and fun are my main focus. My blog will always reflect my life – I rarely use guest bloggers and I only share things I love or would do myself.
I want to start a blog, can you give me some advice?
Start on blogger.com – don’t register a domain yet until you’ve blogged regularly for at least 6 months. I’d say 6 months is a good timeline to know if this is what you want to pursue. Be authentic. Write about what you know and love. Blogging might look easy but it’s actually a lot of hard work. Do not for one minute think that success came easy to any of us. Know your goals, have a plan and stick to them.
