Blogger Question and Answers

I've been tagged by Toni over at One Chocolate Box for blogging Q&A! 

Decorating cookies
When did you first start blogging and why? 
August 2013 because I was working part time and wanted to stay creative while home with my new little angel.  I just posted on this here...

Have you had any past online presence?
No, just social media.

When did you become serious about your blog? 
I'm still not serious about it.  I want it to have constant and never ending improvement but I'm serious about bring a mom and wife first.  It's really for "me" time and being part of a community.  

What was your first blog post? 
 My first post was An End to Our Transition.  We had so many life changes in such a short time and I needed to collect my thoughts.

What have been your biggest challenges blogging? 
Learning the ins and outs of blog design.  I am a creative person and I get frustrated when I can't make my blog look exactly how I imagine it.  

What is the most rewarding thing about blogging? 
The reward is selfish, feeling like I got something off my chest.  I also hope that I can reach others with my posts on things like Gestational Diabetes so that I can sum up what I learned to ease their journey.

What is the most discouraging thing about blogging? 
Again, not knowing enough about the technical side of blogging.  And of course, the post that gets a low number of views.

What is your lasting inspiration or motivation? 
My frustration with certain parts of being a new mom, new wife, and new everything!  I keep trying to make life easier and more organized and want to share that with others.

What is your blogging dirty little secret? 
Hmmm...I don't know!  

What is your current goal as a blogger? 
To not get obsessed with it.  To not blog when I'm with Luke.  To limit my time and effort that I spend on the blog each day.  It can easily be consuming!

Have you learned or become passionate about anything through blogging that caught you by surprise? 
Sort of the opposite.  I thought my number one topic would be DIY projects and I have posted less of these than I anticipated.

Thanks, Toni!  Now I'm tagging Meg at Why Not, Not Why, and Mary Leigh at Thrift for Today!
