When did you start your blog?

October 2009

Why did you start blogging?

I use all the Google app’s and noticed one day that they offered a blog function. I was like, what’s a blog!? So I opened one and went looking for others.

Describe your blog in 20 words or less.

A peek into living the sweet life. A lifestyle blog about family, fashion, fun and the silly things my Hubby does.

What are your 5 must have tools for blogging?

My hubby – He does so much STUPID stuff and is a total tool. We both are.
Blogger, I keep it simple when it comes to my blog
iPhone
iPad
Anything else with an I

What is your favourite part of being a blogger?

The community. I attend as many meet up, lunches, conferences as I can. The people are diverse and colourful and funny as heck. And the free stuff doesn’t hurt either.

What would be the biggest thing you have learnt since starting your blog?

That there’s no right way to blog. When I started my blog would only ever fit in the personal blog category. Which was a bit of hodge-bodge of bloggers that didn’t fit anywhere else. Now we get called lifestyle bloggers. And all I can think is thank goodness I didn’t try and be a food blogger, you know? Try and be something I wasn’t. I probably would’ve quit by now. Bored to death of posting the same thing day after day about something just to fit a niche.

If you could start again, what would you do differently?

I’d start sooner!

What has been your blog’s biggest achievement?

Nothing really. It’s a whole bunch of frivolity with no real purpose.

What do you find is the best way to help promote your blog?

Participating and reading other people’s blogs. And behind that, twitter.

What advice would do you have for new chick bloggers?

If you have a question ask, if you want to email someone, do it and if it isn’t fun, don’t do it.

Do you (or do you plan to) make any income from your blog?

Yes. I sell ad spots and offer blog makeovers using the blogger platform.

What future goals do you have for your blog?

World domination..! *insertevillaugh* I want my blog to be entertaining and somewhere that people go to smile. I want my ad spots full and lots of clicking on the links. I want blogging to be fun and for it offer leverage me all sorts of fun things to do.

What is your all time favourite post that you would love people to read?

Just because I blog am I free game? or  There are no REAL women. Just WOMEN.

What is you most popular post (in comments, or traffic received)?

Oh goodness, this is embarrassing. A random post I wrote about My Family stickers. From day one it was popular and it remains leaps and bounds ahead of the others, hits wise. I took it down once. Hid it so no more people would read it. I was sick and tired of hearing about it. I put it back. Eventually. After we had a little break from each other.

Who are your 5 favourite chick bloggers and why?

Hello Owl & all my Qld gang – You know, because they’re cool!
Danimezza – Just one of those people who I clicked with. And she lets me borrow her clothes.
Mama Jots – A beautiful blog and lovely women who always checks in with me whenever I post something a bit emo.
Edenland – I was late on board this one, but geeeezus, that woman is funny. Why didn’t anyone tell me sooner!?
