Welcome to the Newbie Blog Hop Week 39!
If you will notice, the Newbie Blog Hop has a new home, My Charmed Mom and A Little Bit of Everything will be your new hosts. We have taken the reign from Janet of Going Crazy!! Wanna Go??!! who has started this successful newbie assembly (and we also hope to get the same support that you gave the previous newbie hops).
We have started again last week and as tradition, we have chosen to feature a blogger who has participated in last week's hop. For this week, using Random.org, the featured blogger is :
Julie of Tianna's Coupon Cafe
Please read on for my interview with her .
Tell me a little bit about yourself and your family.
I'm a 37 year old stay at home wife. My husband and I don't have any children, but we do have 3 cats. We live in a small town in Northern Maine called Presque Isle. I do freelance writing for other bloggers to get extra cash.
Why did you start blogging? Is this also why you continue blogging?
That's part of what got me started in blogging. I figured if I was good enough at writing for others to pay me, then I could do it myself Once I started I realized that I enjoyed it a lot more than I ever thought I would.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
So far one of the biggest challenges I faced with my blog is determining a theme for it. There's so much stuff that I love to write that it was very hard to pick a focus. After a few months I discovered that I really, really enjoyed reviewing new products and holding giveaways. Once I realized that it became much easier to for me to manage my blog.
Share your top 3 favorite blogs to read and why?
My favorite blogs are usually sci-fi related. I have few Dr. Who blogs that I follow almost as closely as I follow the show. I'm a huge fan!!
What is your best advice for a Newbie Blogger?
The biggest advice I can give to anyone is not to give up. Blogging isn't nearly as easy as it appears. It will take time to build up an audience, figure out what you want to focus on, and how to manage your time so that you can blog. You just have to keep at it. It will get easier as time goes by.
