Nicole Wants to Know About My Online Life

Nicole Dean, one of my bestest buds in the whole world, tagged me to play along in this blog meme where I tell you all a bit about my blogging/online life. As if Nicole didn't already know enough! ;)

So, here goes for those inquiring minds.

1. How long have you been blogging?

Wow! I surprised myself on this one when I had to look back to find the answer to this one. I started blogging in July 2005, right here on this very blog. I was so new and green to the Internet world and it showed. :)

2. What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?

Nell Taliercio has a site called MommysPlace.net, that used to have an awesome forum and that's where I first heard of blogging. Being the broke mama that I was I wanted a way to get online making some money and blogging was it. I was pregnant with Hunterman at the time and so the blog posts were few and far between, but now, over 2 years later, I'm getting better!

I have too many mentors to mention when it comes to blogging, but the blogging expert Lynette Chandler, is absolutely one of them.

3. Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?

Both. I DO make money online and I DO have bunches of fun doing it!

4. Tell me 3 things you LOVE about being online.

  1. Friends - I've made some really good friends online and I cherish those friendships very much so.
  2. Learning - Every day I learn something new to keep the brain functioning. :)
  3. The ability to make a living while staying home.

5. Tell me 3 things you STRUGGLE with in the online world.
  1. Keeping up with all the new and changing things going on. I finally realized that I don't have to have everything as soon as it hits the Internet...imagine that!
  2. Finding time to work with a busy toddler and now a pregnancy, it's not an easy task.
  3. Learning to cut the computer off...I love what I do and I would absolutely spend too much time working (and playing) online if I didn't have the guys keeping me grounded.
Ok, now it's you're turn:
