Blogger of The Week: Selena from My Rambling Thoughts
1. What inspired you to start your blog?
I’m going to tell you what inspired me to start BACK up the second time. I had blogged for a couple of years and with life happening in a way I didn’t expect, I stopped. Why would it matter anyway? I had friends and family telling me that they really enjoyed my writing, which I was skeptical. They were family and friends. They are supposed to be supportive and nice. But little inserts of “You need to blog again,” or “Why aren’t you writing” kept finding it’s way into conversations. Maybe, I am alright? Remarried and given the chance to be a stay at home, I decided that it was time to really get back into it. I’m inspired by the people in my life and their belief in my writing and expressing that with a no bullsh*t insistence.
2. What is your blog about?
My blog is about anything and everything and my humorous way of going about my day. I don’t just talk about parenting, or my husband, or being a new wife in the military. If I find the funny in the story, I try to translate that onto my blog.
3. What are you passionate about?
I’m truly passionate about seeing that my daughter lives a great life. Exposing her to as many things so she can go out into the world with as much knowledge or awareness of this world. It’s good and bad. I know this is a typical mommy answer…but it’s my greatest passion.
4. Where do you see your blog in five years?
Honestly…in dream land, I envision my friends and family gushing and boasting…”I knew it would go somewhere”. I want to be active and have a bigger audience. I’m just a tiny blog in an ocean full of talented writers and I just hope to keep swimming amongst them all for a really long time. I’ve worked in the restaurant industry where I met many different people in so many different fields of work that I wouldn’t normally know. That connection with some of my guests allowed me to connect them with others for various reasons. I hope that this blog will do that in some way. I’ve worked hard my whole life and this is finally my time to really dedicate the attention this blog deserves and see where I can take it.
photo--I’m sorry….this is all I have. This photo was submitted to another website that I’ll be contributing too as my “headshot” and hopefully will work.
photo of logo– I don’t have one yet. I am stubborn and have programs to make a Logo but am struggling with using the programs. I’m working on it =) I hope that it’s ok.
