Starting every other Wednesday, we will now be sharing our featured blogger of the week!

Our first featured blogger is Heidi S of: “What’s Going on in Heidi’s Head”

When did you start blogging?

I believe I first starting blogging in 2005.  I started blogging about our homeschooling, so it seemed to make sense to blog at homeschoolblogger.com.  I closed my first blog after adopting our 3rd child from Vietnam; but realized I missed blogging, so started a review blog in 2007. Eventually, I switched blogging platforms, and my blog has evolved a lot over the years.

Why did you start blogging?

Originally I started to share about our homeschooling – from there, it became something of an adoption diary.  Then, it became simply a review blog.

What do you like to blog about?

Nowadays, my blog is just an extension of me – I blog about my family, our homeschooling, my thoughts of various books and products, and my obsession with Disney.  You’ll find all this – and more – on my blog.

What do you like most about blogging?

I’ve never been good at keeping a journal or diary, but I love to write and I want to have some sort of record.  Blogging seems to fit that bill.  It’s like a journal – with pictures.  And it’s also been a great way to make new connections and friendships.

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

What I think is the ABSOLUTE BEST – and most important – blogging tip — BE YOURSELF!  I’ve seen so many people who have tried to be something they are not – it never works.  Just be yourself and don’t be afraid to share your flaws with your readers.  Being real makes you more relatable.  Oh, and HAVE FUN!
