I woke up to a very lovely email a few mornings ago from Lindsey, the mommy blogger from Everyday Above Dirt . She was kind enough to have nominated me for my first ever blogging award called the Liebster Award.
Lindsey, the mama behind Every Above Dirt, is a SAHM to a beautiful new baby boy. She has recently started blogging about her family & new little one. She has come to realize blogging isn’t about the perfect picture or blog post. It is about reading each other’s stories without judgement & I couldn’t have put it better than she did, “I am a real mom in the real world trying to give hope to other women.” THIS is why we blog!
The idea behind the award is very encouraging, as the blogging world is very big & daunting at times. To know someone appreciates your hard work means a lot!
Lindsey gave me a list of questions so you can get to know me a bit better & why I started my blogging journey.
Since I have just started blogging, I have realized balance is key. I am still working on finding the time to fit my blog writing in, as well as keeping up with my work life, family & social media platforms. Utilizing a planner, as well as finding neat apps like Hootsuite, have helped with time management dramatically.
I enjoyed writing growing up & kept a journal for many years. It is such a creative outlet and writing allows me to share anything and everything with others. When I started to read other mom’s stories and blogs, I thought why not share our unique story and our family with others. I received my degree in pursuit of becoming a teacher & with this knowledge base, as well as my new experiences of being a mother, I feel like I can relate with moms & offer advice on a more personal & humble level.
I enjoy writing about fun events & activities that you can do with your family & toddler. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we have a wide variety of things to do. Any tips I can give for others to enjoy our area like we do brings me joy & excitement.
I am an extrovert all the way. I am outgoing & sociable, and being around others who are important to me makes me happy. I believe in the importance of speaking up for others & yourself and to always have an open mind in every situation.
What is this word relax you speak of 😊 I enjoy a cup of coffee & browsing on my phone first thing in the morning. Nice & quiet before anyone is up. I am also in love with my cat Tucker, so any chance I get to snuggle with him for a minute is very soothing. Can I also throw in an uninterrupted shower? I will take the 5 minutes!
As part of this award, I am pleased to nominate five more blogs. My nominees are:
