This will be our last The Ultimate Social Media Party. Thank you so much for participating in this party. My life has many changes in it right now, and I am going to have to cut many of the parties that I host.
This week’s featured blogger is Terri from Our Good Life.
- When did you start blogging?
- Why did you start blogging?
At first it was to be a creative outlet and a way to meet people and make friends. That hasn’t changed, but in addition, I want to connect with people who have similar interests, who enjoy the good things in life, and who love all kinds of things!
- What do you blog about?
Food, recipes, reviews, photography, movies, books, products I love, family, friends, travel, crafts, home, decor, my dogs…. whatever life brings me!
- What is your main goal for blogging in general or for this year? What do you want to see accomplished?
To increase my readership, to find more bloggers with a “lifestyle” blog, to grow personally in my writing skills.
- Tell us about yourself, your family, your interests.
I am a retired elementary principal, who is an educational consultant for the University of Missouri. My family consists of my husband, Bob, who is the director of a local college, my daughter, who is a college professor in the field of fashion, my son-in-law who is a graduate student in business, and my two dogs, Wilson and Truman.
- What is your favorite 1-2 posts and why?
–I loved this post of a restaurant review. It was a fun event and my husband went. We had a great time! —This post got raves from the education field. It’s been shared so many places I no longer have record of it!
- Is there anything else you would like to tell us about you or your blog?
I am a breast cancer survivor, and it may be the main reason why I feel compelled to blog. I feel such a joie de vivre, feeling so alive and wanting to share it!
- What is one tip you have for other bloggers?
I know the “experts” on blogging say to find your niche and stick to it, but I also believe that readers know that you are a real person with real life happenings and that the readers want to know you as an all-around person, too.
- What is one thing you wish you would have known when you started blogging that you know now?
That blogging was going to change my life for the better, and I would have started earlier!
Any tweets are also appreciated:
For each social media you link up to, follow the three people who linked up before you. If you have already followed the people before you, try to follow someone new. Thank you for linking up, following, and making this a fun party!!
I will close this party this week on Friday night, so I can get the party ready for next week. I will be on vacation without internet, but this party should still happen!
