Blogging Tips for Fall: Join Me on Periscope for #BlogPrep2015 This Month!

I’ve JUST started using Periscope, and it’s SO fun! If you haven’t heard of it yet, Periscope is a live video social network that’s connected to Twitter. You can send out a live stream of what you’re doing or talking about RIGHT NOW to your followers, and they can watch it live with you or replay it for up to 24 hours with their Periscope app. You can find me on there if you search “@thediymommy“.

Early this week, I had an idea that it would be fun to chat with my fellow bloggers via live Periscope appointments and talk about ways that we could help our blogs grow this Fall. August is such a good time to prepare your blog for the busy Fall months, and what better way than brain storming with eachother and sharing some quick tips and tricks?Continue reading

Video: A Day in the Life of a Mom + DIY Blogger

This video and post were originally published in February 2015, but I’ve shot a brand new video about this topic. Hope you enjoy!

Happy Friday! The last couple of weeks have been nuts with the flu descending on our house, so I’m pretty behind in the ol’ blogging game this week. I wanted to post this video a little later because I think I’ve posted a few too many lately, but I thought, “What the heck; I should share this today”. This is the answer to a question I’ve been asked a lot lately: “How do you do it? What does a day in your life look like?” In this video, I’m sharing with you my basic daily schedule as a mom of three girls aged 11 months, 3 years and 6 years, as a wife and as a DIY blogger.Continue reading
