Our “favorite blogger” for May is Jenn of Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog! We have been working with Jenn for over a year now and are so happy with our partnership. Every project we have the opportunity to work on together is better than the last! We were so excited to have the chance to sit down and learn a little bit more about her!
What inspired you to start blogging?
It’s actually kind of funny. When I started my blog I had no idea what a blog really was. I know sounds crazy, but at the time I was selling Scentsy and wanted to get my website noticed online. You know to show up on Google and all that jazz, I asked someone how to do that and they said start a blog. Here I sit today, I don’t sale Scentsy anymore I just have my blog. I’m actually really excited, last week was my last day as a store manager for a bank I used to work at. I have recently left my job to be with my family and blog full-time.
How do you come up with ideas for your blog? Do collaborate with others often?
I just go with the flow, whatever is going on in my life is what goes on the blog. There’s an ongoing joke in my house not to let mom know or it will go on the blog. Of course I change it up, and have fun with it, but for the most part it’s always something that is going on my in my life and with my family. On those days I cannot think of anything I turn to my kids, they normally remind me of something that I can turn into a blog post, lol.
What is your favorite part about writing Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog?
My readers, there is nothing more important to me than my readers when it comes to Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog. From choosing items to write reviews on, to how I compose a post, I always think about my readers. Without them there would be no blog, and I appreciate everything they do for me.
How has Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog changed since you first started blogging?
WOW, how has Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog changed since I first began my venture in the blogophere? I really don’t even know where to start. My blog has changed with me, the day that I began to look at my blog as a business was the day the changes began. I first began, I knew nothing and when I say nothing I mean nothing.
Over the last year we have changed a lot, my blog along with me. I started out on Blogger, moved to WordPress, had a basic theme, and added a custom theme. You should have seen some of my generic graphics, and some photo’s I used to take with my old camera, lol. I guess in the end you could say my blog has changed from a hobby to a career. In my opinion it keeps getting better, I am consistently learning and updating everything from the kind of camera I use for my pictures to the programs I use to create graphics. It’s been a fun venture and I’m looking forward to the next year.
How does your life off line affect your blog?
I really think my life off line is what has inspired me since I have started, and gives Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog a little extra personality. I have had several readers tell me they enjoy reading my blog because I’m real, it’s because of my off line life and that I’m able to bring that to my blog.
I’m all about my family, they are my number one, and my blog allows me to treat my family the way they deserve to be treated. I also involve my family in my blog. I have been asked to write reviews on products I received for my 14 year old daughter, I don’t write them she does. My husband also writes for me now and again. I never push my family aside for my blog, I don’t have to that’s what I like about it. After having a demanding job where I had to spend time with my family around someone else’s schedule it’s a relief to be able to schedule my working hours around my family life.
