And why I chose a lifestyle blog
Launching a blog has been quite the daunting task for me.
I have had good intentions of starting one for 3 or 4 years, only to have something more pressing deter my focus each time.
I love writing.
During my college years, I was the friend who eagerly volunteered to proofread papers for fellow classmates. I kept detailed journals during all of my international travels so I would be able to one day write a book or blog. And who knows, maybe one day you will hear all about those adventures.
My approach to blogging is one similar to most bloggers—I want to make a difference and touch lives through my life experiences, while also sharing things that I love so my readers can experience them too.
Most bloggers have a niche. They have something they are strongly passionate about, and for the most part, they are highly educated or talented in that area. As I waited, prayed and planned what I wanted my blog to represent, I came to the realization that I don’t have that niche per se.
I don’t have just one thing.
I have many passions, and many talents, but not one that I excel at more than the other. For instance, I love everything related to motherhood, but I am also a young mom, and I have a lot to learn before I ever become an expert. I have a passion for home décor and design, and will gladly use that gift to help a friend decorate her home, but I am not educated in interior design by any means, and would never call myself an expert. I absolutely love baking (and did it professionally for 15 years), but I don’t want that to be what I am all about.
You get the idea.
So here I am. Writing a blog. Sharing my life. Letting you see bits and pieces of my world. Because I don’t have that ‘niche’ they talk about, I chose to compile my passions, hobbies, and talents together to make this blog—a lifestyle blog.
And that is just what you will get here.
If at some point you have a topic you would like me to address or discuss, feel free to send me a message! And let’s get to know each other! Leave a comment and tell me a little about yourself. This will be fun!
So excited for you!!

Thank you so much Jill! I hope you and your family are doing well.
I have always loved writing and feel similarly that’s it’s hard to figure out what to focus on! I have many interests. I’m excited for this blog! Congratulations!!
Thanks so much Kirsten! I think as a mom it’s easy to have a lot of things that pull our attention and interests. It’s sometimes hard to really know what are passions and what are life experiences.
