My sweet friend Sahana from the blog Vikalpah has tagged me to participate in her blog hop! (In case you’re not familiar with the term, a blog hop also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog after another to read the entries or to leave comments. Basically, it’s a great way to answer some questions and help your readers find some new bloggers that may become their favorites! So thanks so much to Sahana for tagging me! And you should totally check out her blog HERE. The girl can make ANYTHING – she’s totally creative!
So on to the blog hop!
Here are my questions from Sahana:
Question 1: What are you working on?
I am working on getting my brain to shut up so I can think clearly! HA! In all seriousness, I’m one of those people who always have a million ideas swirling around in my head. I’m in the midst of planning the next two weeks of blogging, in which I have had so many companies contact me to review products and do posts, that I will be blogging Monday through Friday for a bit, instead of my normal Monday, Wednesday and Friday posts! All good things, and I can’t wait to share them with my readers! I’m also already working on special things for Thanksgiving and Christmas here on the blog, too!
Question 2: How does your work differ from others in my genre?
That’s a good one! I’m really not sure how to answer that. My niche is all things domestic: cooking, baking, cleaning, organizing. I also throw in some decor and things relating to living gluten-free and being a woman! I think I may differ as far as subject matter: when you read a normal domestic blog, I’m not sure you get the gluten-free thrown in there. I also touch on career a bit (since I do work full-time still) so that might be a little different, too.
Question 3: Why do you write what you do?
Anything I’m writing about is something that I LOVE. When I started this blog, I made it a point to not write about anything I was lukewarm on – I wanted to write on things I was passionate about. The same goes for products I review and guest posts I allow here at The Road to Domestication. If I don’t LOVE the product or idea…it doesn’t make it to the blog!
Question 4: How does your creative process work?
It starts with an idea or a picture. And then pretty much the whole post is written in my head by the time I sit down at the computer. Some people say it takes them an hour or two to write a blog post – not me. It’s pretty much done, and I type fast! The ideas come from the deep recesses of my mind somewhere, and my favorite places to see pictures that spur my creativity are Pinterest, Houzz and Hometalk!
Thanks again to Sahana for tagging me, and now it’s my turn!
Alli Smith from An Alli Event.
Alli is a very creative Pastor’s wife who coordinates beautiful events, and always has fabulous recipes, home projects and party inspirations, as well as inspiration and humor in general on her blog! She just showed us how to do a lovely DIY Fall project, and you know how I love Fall!
Anna Esau from Northern Homestead.
Anna is probably the sweetest person I’ve met on this blog journey, and she blogs from Canada on homesteading in a cold climate! Her garden projects and from-scratch recipes are simply amazing! She just did a farm and garden update that was nothing short of incredible!
These ladies are absolutely fantastic and very inspirational to me! I hope you check out their blogs and that you enjoy them, as well!
