Hello & Welcome to my little home in Blogland. My sweet friend MrsTee, invited me to join The Tour Through Blogland, and I accepted, gratefully! MrsTee is such a sweetheart, I hope you will visit her home, she is such a wonderful friend/supporter of everyone in blogland ♡
Well, let’s start this journey. :: Pours coffee::
Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress, has become one of my happy places. My blog rightfully entitled “A Work In Progress” was created to journal my progression through life, never did I think my blog would actually help me to progress. Blogging has helped me to find my confident voice and share it here, with you♡ Last year, was the year I decided to take blogging more seriously, and began connecting with other bloggers. I’m pleasantly surprised with all the love that has been brought to light in Blogland, it’s no wonder I’m here– I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon 🙂
As part of the tour, you will hopefully get to know a little more about me, my blog, and my blogging process. I’ve been given four questions to answer, let’s call them icebreakers 🙂
This is my thinking face, not my b*tch face…
What are you working on?
Currently, I’m working on growing the new linkup I started with a little help from my friends, Courtney & Katy. Our linkup >> That’s What She Said <<:D That line never gets old for me. That’s What She Said, is a monthly linkup for bloggers to become inspired with the quote of the month. The quotes we choose each month are words by women, hence the name, That’s What SHE Said, hopefully the quotes will inspire bloggers to write something. It’s a blogging prompt challenge… sort of ❤ Our first linkup went live on September 10th, and it will run through September 30TH (eh hem, September 30th, good day… eh hem) Hey, just got an idea, you should linkup!
I also have a vlog in the works, I have to edit it, but it’s coming soon… stay tuned! I hope to share it via MrsTee’s, Your Channel or Mine Vlog Hop, this Thursday.
How does your work differ from others of its genre?
I don’t know what my genre is… this question has me perplexed. I just don’t like labeling myself, because I could change tomorrow, I’m a work in progress 🙂 I think many consider me a Mommy blogger, but I’m not sure if I consider myself a “mommy blogger” I’m a mommy who happens to blog. I co-host the Mommy Monday Blog Hop, so I can see how Mommy Blogger has become become my label by some.
Nothing brings me greater joy than being a♡ mother, so I do speak of motherhood often. Although, I’m a mother that doesn’t necessarily mean that is all I am, I am SO much more, but Motherhood is my proudest accomplishment. Yes, anyone can be a mother, but I’m proud of the mother I am, I think I’m doing quite well. If you feel the need to call me a Mommy Blogger, sure go ahead, but don’t forget I’m also a woman who cares about women, kindness, and love. I love to share acts of kindness and things I love. I love food so you will find recipes here, I also love to DIY, those are occasionally sprinkled here on my blog. I have a big mouth, if there’s a hot topic I NEED to address, more than likely I will touch on it here. I may get heated… sorry, not sorry 😉
Why do you write/create what you do?
Writing is therapeutic for me. I need my writing time, it’s good for me, and it’s good for all those around me. I am happy that my blog has given me a place to share my thoughts, I’m able to reflect and track my progression 😉 Also, there are few love notes here on my blog, if my kids or husband ever doubt my love, this blog is affirmation. ❤
How does your writing/creating process work?
More coffee! I sit down at my desk in the corner of my office, I try to clear my mind and go. However, my best ideas usually come to me in the shower or while I’m somewhere away from my computer, this calls for pen & paper. Many of my blog posts are handwritten first, I’m old school like that. Last week I started to tweet, 140 characters wasn’t enough, I created a whole post to get it all out of me head. >> Tweet turned blog post
I read this quote somewhere, and it resonated with me.
I want to make my words count, but most importantly my life count.
I write from the heart.
Well, the coffee is all done….
The party doesn’t have to end though, go ahead and click around. Snooping/stalking is cool with me 🙂
The next stop on your Blogland journey will be at my girl Courtney’s spot.
♡Courtney will share her Tour Through Blogland next Monday. You can still visit her though, I know you’re going to love her, because I do! Plus, she has the cutest baby twin boys!!
Thanks for coming over!
