Follow Friday Featured Blogger
Hey again, darlings! Today’s featured blogger is a woman I’ve admired since the first day I discovered her blog. She runs Busy Bee Mommy Diaries and is a very real, hard working, relatable mom. She admits to the chaos of raising toddlers without trying to be the perfect Pinterest mom, and I love her for it!
1. What was the motivation behind starting a blog?
I have wanted to start a blog for several years, but never thought I had the time or energy to start it up. I always told myself, “One day, when life slows down…” or “When things settle in my life…” However, this quote has really hit me hard this year- if not now, when? If not you, who? So I have decided to take some leaps of faith in my life and work on the dreams I have been holding back on, and see where it all takes me. I wanted to write my blog because I needed a way to get out all the thoughts and feelings I was having as a new mom- well, new-ish mom. When I started the blog, I had three children all three years old or younger, with my youngest being only a few months old. I was having a difficult time figuring out who I was now that I am a mother, wife, sister, friend, daughter, and teacher all rolled into this one person called me. The blog has allowed me to express my thoughts and feelings along with challenging myself to be the best version of myself I can be.
2. Looking back, what advice would you give yourself on the first day of blogging?
Just do it already Start the blog, start writing, and start doing what makes you happy. I have always loved writing, especially how it feels when you get all your thoughts and craziness that is your headspace down on paper. I feel so much lighter and more organized when I can see everything out on paper. Starting the blog allowed me to get it all out, and in doing so, made me feel so much better about where I am in this chaotic world I call my life.
3. Would you partner or be a brand ambassador for any company and who would it be?
This is a great question! I would love to be a brand ambassador for Noonday Collection. Noonday Collection is a great way to make an impact on the world we are living in, and support other hard working people around the globe. Noonday Collection ambassadors are stylists, storytellers, and social entrepreneurs who make impacts in their communities and across the globe (statement from the Noonday Website). If you’re reading this and wondering what Noonday Collection is, take some time and check it out! I love all of the jewelry, bags, and fun accessories they have, and I know when I purchase from Noonday it is going to a good cause.
