I was recently asked by my good friend, Robyn from Simply Fresh Dinners to to participate in the latest Blogger's Writing Tour circulating now. I am so happy she thought of me. Thank you sweet Robyn for including me on this journey.
It basically works when a blogger answers four questions about their writing process and then nominates two or three other bloggers to carry on the tour.
Robyn and I met online a few years ago when I found her food blog and was hooked on her healthy and creative recipes.
Robyn is all about healthy, fresh ingredients and delicious!
She loves to create yummy recipes that are low in calories, and are not time consuming.
We have become great friends and we chat on a regular basis.
Ok, let's begin.
1). What Am I Working On?One of the main things I am working on is to remain healthy. I am a three-time cancer survivor. I hope there is a cure one day soon.
I love to entertain, garden and set a beautiful table.
I enjoy themed tablescapes, therefore I am creating some right now for future posts. I want my guests to feel special when they sit at our table.
Trying new recipes is always fun and it's great when you make something that you absolutely love. I was recently inspired by a beautiful Salmon salad I saw a picture of. I am getting that post ready to share the recipe.
Another interest is blog design. I feel comfortable designing Blogger blogs...to give bloggers a great design that reflects them.
I have been working on a few blogs and also tweak some. Some of my followers have given me the name, My Fairy Blog Mother.
Unfortunately that name wasn't available, so I chose A Blog Fairy, in which I have my second website.
2). How does my work differ from others of its genre?I am working to achieve well written posts to inspire my followers and anyone else reading my blog. I am not sure how different it is, because there are so many talented bloggers out there.
I pride myself with being an all around blogger....meaning I write about food, sharing recipes I love.....Creating fun themed table settings ,my love of gardening....Decorating and of course Blog designs.
3). Why do I write what I do?I write as I do to share and inspire others. Blogging is all about sharing experiences, whether it is food, decorating, gardening, crafting plus many more things. Sharing is caring and we all can inspire each other with our many talents.
For instance, when I went through two cancers again last year, I chose to share my experience, my feelings, and my surgery through my blog. It helps to write down your feelings.
When I wrote the post on Etiquette for cancer, you can find it here. I wanted to give some insight into those who don't know what to say or do.
I also write tutorials to assist other bloggers, so you can say, I love to share.
4). How does my writing process work:Just living everyday life gives me plenty of inspiration.
I look around and get inspired by our gardens, a restaurant we have
have a fabulous meal at etc.
Re-working recipes to make them different and delicious.
Mixing color combinations together to create a wonderful table setting. Many of you inspire me, so I can put on my thinking cap
and create away. Taking my thoughts and putting them on this blog and adding photos completes the process.
It's my time to nominate a few bloggers whom I admire.
Here are two bloggers I admire their special talents.
Jacqueline of Purple Chocolate Home
has a lovely blog, full of gorgeous tablescapes,
beautifully decorated food and decor. She definitely has the knack for design. It's always a pleasure to visit and see what Jacqueline is up to.
I have to add, I designed her blog as well.
Anita of Castles Crowns and Cottages
is such a talented writer. She creates beautiful posts with lovely images, some animated and of course her captivating poetry. She will charm you with her well written posts. Anita is a French teacher as well. Her words will take on on a journey of no other.
Please take the time to visit these lovely ladies.
