Tuesday Topics: Blog Identity

Hello Hello! Today is the second Tuesday Topics and it's all about blogging!

What is your blog about?
Pretty much whatever floats into my head. I mainly started it as a way to share projects I've completed but it's definitely become more about just life in general.

Why did you start blogging?
The money duh! Just kidding. If I was doing this for the money I'd be in huge trouble right now. I've been reading blogs for a few years now and finally decided to do one myself. I also saw it as a way to promote my Etsy store (24 sales so far!). 

What's something your readers know about you?
They know that I have 3 dogs and a boyfriend. 

What can't you live without?
The boyfriend, the previously mentioned 3 dogs, family, friends, hello kitty, and cupcake stuff!

What inspires your blog posts?
Really anything I'm doing. Sometimes I'll make something for dinner and be like I should put this on the blog. Or if I see cool projects on pinterest that I want to share.

What do you do when you feel uncreative?
Fall off the radar. Well that happens when I'm just busy with school too. But for the most part I don't try to force anything I'm doing this for fun so I figure it can wait.

How has blogging changed you?
Ehh nothing's really changed. I feel guilty about taking pictures with my iPhone instead of whipping out the Canon Rebel. Sometimes I feel a little pressure especially when I talk about all these cool things I want to do and nothing comes from it. But hey that happens sometimes.

What advice do you have for new bloggers?
Don't worry about the numbers. Yes it's still exciting to have a new comment or a new follower but don't stress about getting them. I have 31 lovely followers! I'm glad they're here and I'm not gonna freak out on how I can get more. 

What blogs inspire you?
I tend to read more crafting blogs. One of the first blogs I ever read was Thrifty Decor Chick and I still read her almost 3 years later. I love Lindsay at Better After because she's hilarious and shows you a ton of projects and how you should never pass on an ugly piece of furniture. Katy at Sweet Verbena has some really cute projects and we're around the same age. I also love reading what's going on in Lauren's life at Life.Love.Lauren because I actually know her outside of the blogging world. I seriously frequent a lot of blogs so it's hard just choosing a few. 

And just this has been driving me crazy the past week I will share it...seriously I've done like 10 numbers and it always comes out the same. I know I'm a nerd. 


  1. Pinterest is always inspiring! Maybe one of these days if I ever do a giveaway on my blog you could do something for your Etsy shop. It would be a good way to get the word out and have people follow your shop. I might do one if I ever get to 500 followers or something. Hope all is well!

    1. I would definitely be up for that...gives me a little time to stock up the store some more...lol It's like I spend all this time creating new things and people buy the same one over and over again...but hey I'm not complaining.
