Erin at Perfect Sentiment had a blog post this morning about the hows and whys of blogging. I've explained the why before, but I thought I'd play along...
Where do I blog?
Mostly, it's in the office at home. I adore this space since we finally got it renovated, and especially since we invested in a Mac.
When do I blog?
Like Erin, I typically hop on for a few minutes right after the boys go to bed. That little energy spurt is usually when I throw out a few posts. Sometimes I'll do a few at once and schedule them out over a few days. I do this a couple times a week, especially when my husband is working late.
What is my blog?
It's my happy place. A place where I focus on the positives. That's my only rule: no negativity. I post recipes, pretty pictures, fun and random things, music, family pictures, and any other little thing that I happen to stumble across that makes me happy.
How do I go about it?
I don't have a system. It's pretty random. But I do have a few reoccurring topics: menus and recipes, three beautiful things, five senses posts, and I used to focus quite a bit on organizing, although that's tapered off recently. I probably need to reenergize my efforts there. With two little ones, and with my only regular readers being long-distance family and friends, I also post a lot of kid photos. I'll post quotes, music, books, movies, pretty house/interior pictures, etsy finds, and whatever else I may be thinking about that day. I'm a working mom with two small kids, so the topic of balance is often on my mind - sometimes it makes the blog too.
