Tour of Blogland

I was so excited when Kristina from Medicine & Manicures asked me to be apart of the Tour of Blogland series. Lately, one of my favorite things to do is to learn more about bloggers and connecting with them! Some of you ladies I talk to multiple times on a daily basis and then some- I seriously do not know what I would do without the support from the blogging community. It is oh-so fabulous! Let's dive right in shall we?



WHAT I'M WORKING ON

I don't really pre-plan posts- I just pick what I want to share and write about that day and then dive in and go for it. (probably the reason for random rants and grammatical errors- I make up my own grammar) I use the week for blogging and always take a break on the weekends to focus on family, friends, house work etc.

HOW DOES MY WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS IN ITS GENRE?

Well I actually started this blog back in 2011 solely for crafting and it was called The Thrifty Blonde (yes ya'll I'm serious) I didn't know much about the blogging world but knew I wanted to document what I was making. When I started adding more favorite bloggers to my list and reading others that didn't only specialize in crafting I decided to do an overhaul and that's when Jessi's Design emerged so that I could expand what it was I was writing about. I guess I don't have a central style and that is what makes it a tad different- we have preggo issues, house renovations and every day life! As always, thanks for sticking around and reading along!

WHY DO I WRITE/CREATE WHAT I DO?

Mostly so I can look back one day. Blogging is like a virtual journal that you will always have no matter what (no misplacing it in a move or leaving it somewhere) and now with a little one on the way, I like to think of it as a tool for them to see the interests his or her mommy had/has!

HOW DOES MY WRITING & CREATIVE PROCESS WORK?

Simple. I just go with it. Literally whatever pops into my head (usually first thing in the morning) I will do a post about it. Of course some things are routine- for example, I like to do the Friday 5 series, Weekend Updates and I'm gravitating towards Wednesdays for my bumpdates.

Now we can keep it going with the tour! Below are a few of my favorite bloggers so be sure to visit them and read about their individuals tours as well! (love these ladies! xoxo)
