Today I am going to take a break from blogging tutorials and tell you a bit about me and my blog. Special thanks to Alex Beadon for encouraging me to answer these questions:
Who are you?
My name is Kristie Hill and I am the owner/editor of Blog Ambitions. (What title do you give yourself?)
I live in the Seattle area with my husband and the cutest toddler you’ve ever seen. Here’s a picture of him today while I was doing a photo shoot for an upcoming blog post:
He and Devin are the center of my life. We love laughing, playing cars, running around in the rain, and snuggling. I love being a Mom and staying home with Doran. While he sleeps, I work on this blog (I just sneaked in and took this picture of him. He opened his eyes for a second, but luckily he went back to sleep).
What most of my blogging friends don’t know about me is that I have a bachelor’s degree in Horticulture and I love everything to do with flowers.
I am still Pinterest obsessed though. And, I think that Pinterest is a blogger’s best friend.
This year I admitted that I’m a blogging nerd and started this blog to help other bloggers be successful. You can read more about me and my journey to starting Blog Ambitions on my about page.
Why did you start blogging?
Let’s go way back to answer this questions. I started blogging as an assignment in college to create an online portfolio for my floral design work. I had one on Weebly and one on Blogger (gasp!).
Fast forward to my last semester of college when I decided I needed to learn a little bit of the online world to promote my wedding floral business. In the process of getting my wedding floral blog/site set up I discovered the business of blogging.
That’s when I started to get really excited about blogging. I wanted to do it all: couponing, recipes, crafts, motivation, blogging tips, etc. It was a lot of fun, but this year I decided to narrow in and focus on the topic I was most passionate about: blogging.
