Interview by HER. (A Featured Blogger Series).

When did you start blogging and why? I started blogging in August of 2005.  My son and two of my daughter in laws were blogging and it looked like fun.  I never thought anyone would actually read my blog, but I thought it would be a fun way to journal.  What are some of the lessons you have learned since. That bloggers are so different, yet very alike too.   I love getting to know people from all across the country and around the world.  I've been lucky enough to meet quite a few of my blog friends in person and it never fails to amaze me that every.single.one of them is exactly how they portray themselves on their blog.  That's refreshing!



What inspires you to blog??? .


Life.  It's always fun to look back over my blog and see just how blessed I am.  Sometimes my days are exciting and some are spent just doing things I love like taking a bike ride along the beach or playing tennis with friends.  No matter what I do, cancer has taught me that life is beautiful and …

Friday's Bliss List.

A pretty rose...
pretty teacups all in a row...
a slice of  yummy cake...
sparkling shoes to go dancing in...
a chandelier for my room...
to go on a picnic, just because I can...
and to be surrounded by scented candles.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone. Love Lisa xx

Interview by HER. (A Featured Blogger Series)

When did you start blogging and why?
I first started blogging because I opened an Etsy shop.  But now I blog because I love to share the crafts I make, recipes, and tutorials.  It's fun when people comment and positive feedback is nice!

What are some of the lessons you have learned since.
I have learned there are so many talented Bloggers out there!  I have also learned that posting about 3 times a week is a must.


What inspires you to blog??? . Crafts, whatever I am thinking about that day.  My crazy life.


What was the most inspiring thing you've read recently.
     A book about a Holocaust Survivor called From Ashes to Life by Lucille Eichengreen.  I am slightly obsessed with the Holocaust and love to read inspiring stories of survivors!
What has been your fave post?
I think my favorite post was this one:

Who are your style or inspirational icons and why…

Interview by HER. (A Featured Blogger Series) FashionSteeleNYC. Laugh Shop Love.

When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging after a read in article in amNewYork about the 6 style blogger you need to know now. Something inside me just clicked. I actually had started to write a novel the day before because I love to write but then I saw this article and was blown away. I knew right then that this was something I had to do. I have a real passion for writing and fashion. Blogging is the perfect combination of the two and I really love it.



What are some of the lessons you have learned since. Blogging is not easy. It takes a lot of time shooting and posting and editing and keeping readers interested and coming up with blog titles. It can be a little daunting. I've learned to actually draft a few, atleast 3-5 post, in advance and post them throughout the week instead of quickly posting something once a day. I spend 2 days a week (for about 2-3 hours) preparing post that i will later publish onto the blog. It keeps me from going insane really. …
