It’s been quiet around here…


I’m sorry it’s been a little quiet here on the blog.  I’ve been reading an amazing book, Blogging for Writers by Robin Houghton, so I’ve been working behind the scenes to make the blog even better.  The world of blogging is completely new to me, and this book has been perfect for me.  It’s geared toward writers, but I think anyone interested in starting a blog could benefit from reading it.

I’ve got some exciting interviews coming up.  I’ll be visiting with Meg Lemke, editor-in-chief of Mutha Magazine soon.  She also programs the comics and graphic novels at the Brooklyn Book Festival, which is this weekend!  Oh, how I wish I could be there!

I’ll also be talking with Lauren Lim of Photography Concentrate.  You can see my previous post about her here.  She has been such a pleasure to visit with so far; I can’t wait to share a little bit of her interview with you.

I’ll also be talking with designer Erin Flett.  She was featured in the September 2016 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. She was featured as one of the Style Makers of 2016!  I absolutely love her style, and I can’t wait to get to know her better.

So, stay tuned!  Many great things to come… I’m learning lots about blogging and the blog is getting better everyday, and I’ve got some really great interviews coming up that I am so excited about.  Can’t wait to share them with you!


Lauren Lim of Photography Concentrate

Last night I contacted Lauren Lim.  She’s one half of the husband/wife team that heads up Photography Concentrate.  I’ve been a fan of Photography Concentrate for a long time. I’ve purchased a few of their tutorials, and I found them very helpful.  They also offer free resources on their site.  As you can see on their website, they just have a fun vibe about them.  They also have a pretty interesting story about how they became photographers.  If you are interested in photography, I highly recommend that you check them out.

I chose to contact Lauren for a few reasons.

  1.  She’s fun.  She just has a great, positive, upbeat personality.
  2. She’s the mother of two young boys.  She’s shared a little about how motherhood and her work intersect on their blog.
  3. At one time, Rob and Lauren were working as full-time wedding photographers and running the Photography Concentrate website while raising one (and then two) sons.

I’m looking forward to getting to know Lauren better and finding out how she’s getting it all done.
