If you are a writer or a blogger, it’s so important to find your tribe. Hours at the keyboard can be lonely. Amber and I have been connecting with some like minded bloggers and writers through Facebook groups.
We recently connected with Motherhood and Lifestyle Blogger, Miranda Southern. When I checked out her blog I loved that she posted an honest income report. She also knows so much more about Instagram than I do and has shared her knowledge so that others can learn more too. I had a few questions for her. If what she’s up to piques your interest check out her blog, the link is at the bottom of her interview.
What is your blog all about?
I say Motherhood Lifestyle. I mainly focus on parenting, beauty, and style. I also have a page dedicated specifically for tips for bloggers and social media influencers.
How long have you been writing?
Specifically for my blog only about 7 months, but I’ve written songs and little stage plays for about as long as I can remember. That’s not something I share with many people!
What’s your favorite book?
My favorite classic would be To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It instantly transports me to a Southern fall day with crisp leaves and hot apple cider. More recently I would say The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It’s raw, emotional, and hilarious and, as my favorite classic, set in the South.
How do you find time to write while juggling the demands of parenthood?
Time is the thing I struggle with the most when it comes to writing. There is no such thing as free or focused time. I have a list of blog topics in a notebook and choose what I want to write on a weekly basis. Some days I can get a paragraph or two done and other days just a sentence. I try not to let it overwhelm me because it is something I consider an outlet and I never want it to become a chore.
What’s your favorite thing about fall?
Coffee on the front porch cuddled up in soft blanket in the cool of the morning. Being from the South the mornings feel like fall, but by noon it’s in the high 80’s and everyone is pulling off their layers!
What social media site do you love the most?
Oh, hands down Instagram. Life through pictures and 30 second clips is my jam!!!
