I started blogging as more of a family blog, documenting our adventures living in Hoboken, NJ. Inspired my sister in law, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day, I started using it as a way to archive products and diy projects I was working on and it just kind of blossomed from there. My favorite part is what a creative outlet it's been for me and the sense of community bloggers have. I love blogging, look forward to doing it everyday and even if I were making nothing, I'd still be doing it. It's one of my very favorite hobbies.
As a mother, small business owner, and blogger, how do you juggle it all?
I'm someone that really likes to be busy. I'm pretty efficient in my time use and love to have a schedule and plan out my day. With only one child now, it seems to work out fine. I set aside time during the day (usually during naps or in the evening) to deal with blogging/advertising issues/answering emails and then make sure to shut the laptop quickly and go do something fun with my son. It's a nice balance right now.
Where do you go for creative inspiration?
I'm embarrassed to tell you how many blogs I subscribe to but it is A LOT. I don't read them all every day, or even every week, but when I am looking for inspiration it's a great place to start. I also love old issues of domino and martha stewart kids.
What do you see yourself doing 5 years from now?
I have no idea! I love working from home and hope to be able to keep doing it even when our family grows. It's very fulfilling for me and a great creative outlet.
Just for fun- what are your weekend guilty pleasures?
I love running, camping, hiking and sewing. I also love checking out local thrift stores and eating out at a new restaurant here in San Francisco.
