This week’s featured blogger is Elaina K. She is the proud author of A Time Out With Mommy

When did you start blogging?

 I started blogging about 3 years ago but didn’t start A Time Out for Mommy until a year and a half ago.

Why did you start blogging?

This is a funny story- I actually started blogging as part of a project for one of my graduate classes. I had heard of blogs before this but didn’t really know what they were. I can’t believe from that one “experimental” class project I have come this far in the blogging world.

What do you like to blog about?

I love blogging about things I know- mommy life and everything involved in that! From parenting, relationships, recipes and everything else!

What do you like most about blogging?

I love connecting with people! I’m a people person and have a need to be social. Unfortunately as a stay at home mom, the most social interaction I get most days is with a two year old- so it is nice to connect with other moms that are going through similar things as me.

What’s one tip you’d give to someone who’s thinking of starting a blog?

BE PATIENT! In the beginning it all seems daunting, and there aren’t too many bloggers that are willing to share their secrets to a successful blog. There are many resources out there but none are as good as experience, doing it yourself, and learning along the way. A good starting point would be to figure out your niche and take it from there!
