It’s a great feeling when you are finally recognized for your hard work, determination and sleepless nights. I started my blog Mind of a mom last year and it was a struggle for me at first, I didn’t know what I was going to write about, whether people were going to understand me, connect with me or even read what I had to say. But, this year I decided to get up off my ass and do what I said I wanted to do, I wanted to be a successful blogger and work from home. Today, I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Teresa Jeffris, she is a lovely woman and her poems are so beautiful. Go check out her blogs at Joys,
I have questions that I am going to answer, and after this I will nominate 11 People of my own and they will have to ask their own questions.
I am going to answer these questions truthfully and you will know a little more about me.
1.) How did you get started? Well, writing calms my anxiety down, and I am also browsing the internet so, I woke up one day and said I wanted to blog. I was scared at first because I didn’t know where to start or write about, my sister best friend is a web designer and he helped me get started.
2.) What inspires your gift? My kids and mother inspire me. Every day I look at them, I am reminded why I am striving so hard to be the best.
3.) Do you have a favorite post? Of course, I love Anxiety was controlling me
On this post I get a little personal and talk about my depression, along with my anxiety and how it took over my life. I was a little embarrassed to post it cause, at that moment during writing, I was having anxiety and was riding to the hospital.
4.) What is something important you’ve learned in your journey? I learned during my journey is interaction will go a long way, and a lot of people on Twitter and Instagram will follow you and un-follow you. I focused with getting my followers up and then I would get discouraged when my numbers started dropping. Now, I don’t focus much on my followers and only focus on the people that is still there and support everyone as much as I can.
5.) How frequent do you post? I want to post at least once a week, but I am a mother to three kids and a full time student so I post once every two weeks. Sometimes it might be longer, I am working very hard to make it more frequent.
6.) What are you most passionate about? I am most passionate about my family, I love them so much and I do everything I do is for them. I have a dream and a goal set this year for my family and I am working hard to reach them both. I am also passionate about makeup (lol) I am going to start posting about makeup as well.
7.) Are you Introverted or Extroverted? I am
8.) Who is your favorite author? My favorite author is Zane, she
9.) What is your favorite time of the day? This may sound crazy, but my favorite time of the day is 3:00 p.m. I love watching Judge Judy.
10.) Do you have a Muse? What is it? I might say this a lot, but my muse is my kids.
11.) What is the dream you are reaching for? My dream is to finally put my mother in a nice home, my kids can have a back yard to play in versus where we are now. I want my family to live comfortable and safe.
