Today, we thought you guys might like to meet our blog "little", Fawn. We did a quick interview with her the other day.
Tell me a bit about yourself.
My name is Fawn I have been married to my husband Matt for 9 years and we have two kids. My sweet girl Riley (4) and my handsome Cohen (2). I am from sunny San Diego California, but have lived in Colorado ever since I got married. I stay at home with my kids which has always been my dream. I am slightly obsessed with reality t.v. and social media (instagram & pinterest.) I love anything health and fitness related as well as fashion and beauty.
How does Matt feel about your blog?
That is a great question, one I haven't thought much about until now. My hubby is totally the anti-social media person so we are complete opposite. However, he does read my posts if I tell him about it and he is glad that I have something that I love to do which is write.
Do you ever let/ ask him to help?
I don't think it would be his choice to help me lol but there are a few times when I have needed his help with html stuff. He is really smart and helps me out once in a while with something like that. Otherwise he's not involved at all.
How long ago did you begin blogging?
I began blogging when I had my daughter Riley so almost 5 years ago.
What was your original goal for the blog?
My original goal was to keep my family (who all still live in California) updated with Riley and her life. I know it was hard for them to not be here and see all of her milestones growing up.
Has that changed? How so?
Yes it has changed. Now that we have instagram and facebook to keep our famlies updated with pictures of the kids my blog has turned into more of a "Me" out let. It is a way for me to share what is on my heart , my passions, interests and to connect with others.
What originally inspired you to begin blogging?
I was inspired by my daughter. I always loved writting and keeping journals, when I became a mom that passion came back.
What are some of your favorite blogs to read?
I love to read Casey Leigh from The Wiegnads, my friend Amy from Set Free, Bailey Jean from Brave Love blog, Jess Connolly oh there are so many but those are a few of my faves.
Where do you come up with ideas for your blog posts?
Usually it's just what is on my heart at the moment. There are times when I do join up with linkups or challenges to help with writing prompts or ideas from other bloggers that inspire me.
Do you have a routine for writing?
Not really I kind of just go with the flow. The one thing that I try to do though is pray before I write. I don't ever want my posts to be just "about me" I want them to connect with the reader so that they don't feel alone.
Can you share some of your favorite posts you’ve written?
One of my favorite pots is called "Paul Walker and God" it's a real honest post about faith and life. I also love my post on our recent trip back home to visit family because I put a ton of pictures up from our trip to California and I love seeing my kids cute little faces on vacation.
Anything else you’d like to leave our readers with?
Just that if your new or old to the blogging world remember why you started blogging in the first place whenever you feel like your in a slump or wondering why am I doing this. Don't forget your "why".
