This week's Blogger Spotlight is Megan from Our House of Pink. She has two cute little girlies, and one more on the way! I've been a faithful follower of her blog for awhile. I'm glad she's my spotlight this week!
|Look at that cutie patootie and her precious babes!|
Here's our interview:
1. How long have you been blogging?
Since November 2010. But I didn't really get into it until the beginning of this year.
2. How did you choose you blog name?
We have two girls; ages 4 1/2 years and 15 months. EVERYTHING in my house is pink. Literally. We don't have any unisex toys, except our jumperoo. We found out we were expecting in April of this year, due in November. I was a little worried what would happen if we were having a boy. I thought I could change the name to "Our House of Pink with a Little Blue" but we're having another girl. So, now my blog name definitely fits.
3. What inspired you to start blogging?
Kelle Hampton from Enjoying The Small Things. I found her blog and was reading it before I even started blogging. Her words and the way she describes her life...that those moments will be forever recorded for her daughters to read when they are older inspired me to do the same for my girls.
4. What post are you most proud of?
I would have to say my post called Let’s Be Honest. It’s about me having clef lip and worrying about my daughters having it while pregnant. It was very hard to write, to admit to people who wouldn’t know otherwise that I have it, and even harder to know that people could read it who have made fun of me because of it.

5. What post is your least favorite?
This is an easy one. My very first post. It was a paragraph long. I had no idea what to write or how to start.
6. What is your favorite blog/blogger?
If I could only choose one is would be Kelle Hampton. A few favorites after that would be: The Busy Budgeting Mama; Behind the Moon; Young House Love; Finding Joy; Life as 5.
7. What subject won’t you blog about?
I would never blog about something that I don’t want my children to read about later in life.
8. What do you find most challenging about blogging about your topic?
Writing something that others would be interested in. Some weeks I find it hard to write and those posts are only so-so. While other weeks I could write 3 posts a day.
9. What is the ultimate goal for your blog?
To keep an online journal of my daughters lives, and maybe if I’m lucky one day my blog will be well known and I’ll get paid to write. A girl can dream right??
10. What do you want people to take away from reading your blog?
I hope that there are posts that people read and can relate to. That they can take something from it whether it’s strength to change something or just knowing that someone else is out there that knows what they are going through.
Thanks for the great interview, Megan! Everyone go and show Our House of Pink some love!
