It’s A Blog Party! Want to join me?
I heard about this on Twitter (which of course is one of my favorite social media hangouts) and thought I’d join in the fun!
If this is your first time here, I’m Michelle, and I’m mom to 3 kids, two teens and a tween (2 boys and a girl), and my husband and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary last year! Our family also includes 4 cats and 3 dogs, 6 of which are shelter animals. Yes, many people think we are crazy…I prefer to think of ours as a home filled with enough love to go around!
I’m a WAHM, with an established business in the photo organizing industry, offering custom design and photo management services. My business has taken a few twists and turns along the way, and because of my love for all things social media, and my background in marketing, I also now offer social media marketing services to small businesses.
I’m an avid photographer (especially love sports photography), a runner (30 years!), and I also love to read. I read really fast though, and am not a very patient person, so I have a hard time waiting weeks on end for new release books at the library…which means I spend too much money on books. If anyone has any good suggestions on ways to get around this, I would really welcome them, because I would like to tone down this line item in our budget! A couple other things about me? I really love good food (I guess it’s a good thing I like to run), and I try to eat organic whenever possible. I am also addicted to quotes, and you’ll probably find them from time to time in my blog posts.
In my blog, you’ll find references to my day to day life (Having a Puppy is Like Having a Toddler), sports mom topics (Sports Photo Tips for Sideline Parents), and organizing tips, often guest posts from my friends in the professional organizing field (Stylish Bathroom Solutions). I occasionally do product reviews and giveaways for products I love…if you like to take photos, you might want to check my current one out, a feature on Epiphanie camera bags! I also often write DIY advice for organizing your printed and digital photos and creating keepsakes with them so that you can enjoy those precious memories! I’ve been working in the photo industry since 2003 and I’ve always been the family historian, so I’m pretty passionate about photos and stories! My most recent post was on digital photo organizing!
I’m relatively new to the blog world…I started a blog early last year on Blogger, abandoned it to move to WordPress and started back up with my WordPress blog last summer. I’m having an absolute blast! I’ve met so many great people! I hope you will stop in and say hello! Please feel free to visit me on Facebook and Twitter as well and share a link to your blog in your comment if you like! I’m looking forward to connecting with you!
