Tour through Blogland

Uncategorized

So the lovely Jamie from Snap Ginger  (top right) asked me to be a part
of the Tour Through Blogland series that a bunch of bloggers are becoming a
part of.  Jamie is a fellow NJ blogger
like moi.  Check out her original post
here about her tour as well!  Now let me
answer a few questions so you can get to know Jersey Girl, Texan Heart a little
better.

What are you
working on now?

The
question is, what am I NOT working on?  I
feel like what I should work on is learning to relax and just sit down for a
few minutes but lately I have been doing so many things from my Jars by Monica
business, to Christmas outfit/nail art posts, to baking for the holidays, and
so much more.  I guess something that I’m
excited to eventually start doing is a collab with a photographer/videographer.  He actually approached me and I was taken by
surprise because well that’s pretty awesome! 
That probably won’t happen until a few months from now but at least it’s
in the works!

How does your work differ from others in its genre?

I
feel like my blog offers a little bit of everything.  I talk about fashion, beauty, nail art
tutorials, baking, fitness, and my life. 
I feel as though my blog is more of a magazine because I offer so many
different things.  I don’t even know how
I started branching out into different topics, but I feel like in the fashion
industry you can only look at pictures of someone in different outfits so
much.  I even started getting bored of my
own blog and that’s when I decided I needed to rebrand and spice it up a
bit. 

Why do you write/create what you do?

To
be honest, this is a tough question.  I
write/create everything in this blog for so many different reasons.  I started this blog in 2010 because I needed
a creative outlet and then life got in the way so I stopped.  I didn’t really feel confident enough to
start back up again until 2013.  Then I
realized that I really missed blogging. 
I missed communicating with other bloggers.  I work in corporate America and it gets
really monotonous after a while.  My blog
keeps me wanting to try new things and being adventurous.  I dedicated this blog to my good friend
Dan.  Everything I’ve done in the past 2
years has been thanks to him.  He opened
my eyes to see the beauty in everything, and that’s what I intend to do both in
life and in this blog.  So honestly I
feel like there really isn’t an answer to this question because there are so
many reasons why.

How does your writing/creative process work?

I’m
inspired by things in my everyday world. 
If there’s a day where I’m not inspired, that’s the day I won’t
blog.  I don’t want to write terrible
quality content when I know I’m just having an off day and tomorrow I’ll try
again.  There are days where I don’t want
to blog and I just want to catch up on all of the other blogs that I missed out
on in the week.  I never want to force a
post out of me because I’ve done it in the past and believe it or not those
were the posts where I had the least amount of views on.  I also keep myself very organized with my
blogging.  I have a planner that I write
in almost every day to figure out which days I want to post what and I write
down all of my ideas for posts because well most of them I think of while I’m
stuck in traffic so as soon as I get home I’ll write it down and save it for
when I can finally sit down and blog.  I
also have a lot of exel spreadsheets to keep me in check with my budget.  There are a lot of times where I’ll
specifically buy things for my blog and for blogging pictures/purposes, I keep
track of all these purchases so I keep in mind how much money I’m
spending.  This girl still has to pay her
bills too!
Now
the fun part, introducing some of my blogger pals that I highly recommend you
should go check out!
