Website: ...and what about Grace? (http://www.andwhataboutgrace.blogspot.com/)
How long have you been blogging? I've been blogging since August 2009.
What inspired you to start blogging? I originally started because my bride-brain was taking over and I was afraid that I would forget all of my ideas. I was also looking for a way to keep track of all of the inspirational weddings coming across my Google-Reader. It has since morphed into a personal documentation of my wedding experience - working full time and planning a wedding - which seems to be quite the norm these days. :)
What did you originally blog about and how has that evolved? I started the blog to just talk "wedding planning." It's grown into a blog that highlights (what I consider to be) inspirational weddings around the world, upcoming creative trends, colors, ideas....
What different types of blogs do you stalk? I'm a huge fan of any and all blogs about weddings, planning a wedding and living on a budget, home decor, cooking, anything and EVERYTHING paper and craft related, etc.
Three of your favorite blogs?
- Sarah Rhoads Photographers & Steep Street Photography (It's a tie. I can't choose.)
- Peanut Petunia AKA Mrs. Strawberry on WeddingBee. We work together and she's a riot, plus she has incredible style.
- WeddingBee & Style Me Pretty (I hate choosing sides!)
How many blogs do you think you have in your feeder? Oh goodness...probably about 125-150ish.
What impact has blogging had on you? I feel like I have found such an amazing group of inspirational women to share ideas with! My fiance and I have been engaged for well over a year, and I have been pretty paranoid about annoying my coworkers, girlfriends, family, and most importantly: my fiance with all my wedding-talk. How is it when you're engaged everything reminds you of weddings. Colors, shapes, textures, lighting, seasons, weather....anything and everything reminds me of an idea, project, or plan. Blogging has given me an outlet and an audience that will never tire of my bride-brain! :)
Additional Blogging Rants: Time. It seems like there is never enough time. I fall asleep before writing the ever-so-important blog post of the day. I have to work late. I have a work event on the weekend. I planned a girls night, or a date night, or a family night. Granted, it's my time. I plan it how I see fit. But I always wish there was just a little extra time. Another frustration is writer's block. It happens. Frequently. Somehow I power through it. Also - my addiction to blogging has left me with an everlasting feeling that I am still somehow missing out on the most amazing and inspiring wedding blog in the world. If you write that blog, please let me know so I can add you to my Google Reader. :)
And we all know if I hunt hard enough and find a picture of your dog, it will be posted. I'm such a pooch lover!
