Good morning ladies! First, thank you for your sweet comments on my post yesterday. I was overwhelmed reading them. Your prayers mean so much to us and we know God has great plans in store for Courtney and Colt. Thank you again!
Do you remember at the beginning of the year, I asked you to fill out a survey? I continue to refer back to it and my goal this year is to get my blog more organized. I want it be as easy to read as possible.
When I started this blog in 2009, I had no idea that it would grow to the size it is today. I remember when I would get maybe 2 emails a week.
As you can imagine, I get a lot more emails now and I try my best to answer them but some weeks I just can’t seem to get it all done.
I love, love, love to hear from you and I always want you to feel you can email me. But I have noticed over the last year, I keep getting asked the same questions so I thought I would add a Frequently Asked Questions page to my blog.
So lets pretend we’re sitting around the table at my favorite coffee shop and I’m going to answer the questions I get asked the most often.
1. How did you get started blogging?
I started blogging in 2009. My Mom introduced me to the blogging world and encouraged me to start one. I started with a lifestyle blog but after attending a blogging conference, I felt God leading me to write about my love for fashion and makeup.
I felt I could reach more women and not only share about fashion but my faith in Jesus. That’s how Walking In Grace & Beauty started.
2. I would love to start a blog could you give me some advice?
The best place I can send you for help on starting a blog is to Amy Lynn Andrews. If you have a question, Amy has an answer!! Her post on How To Start A Blog in 15 Minutes or Less is a great place to start.
Blogging is a wonderful thing but it does take time and commitment. The best advice I can give you is to start a blog on something you love.
Also attend a blogging conference. These have been big helps for me with blogging.
3. Do you really make money blogging?
Yes. But it has taken me years to get to this point. If you’re starting a blog to make money, there are easier ways to make money, I promise.
Most of us that make money have had to work very hard to get to this point but it can be done. Just know you have to be patient, it doesn’t typically happen over night.
4. Where did you get the wall art that’s in your pictures?
I think this is the #1 question I get! Several year ago, I met Dee at a blogging conference. She has a wonderful business called Red Letter Words. You’ll love her wall art!
5. How tall are you? What size do you wear?
Another question I get all the time. I’m 5’6″ and I generally wear a size 6 or 8 in pants and a small or medium in a top. I hope that helps!
6. Do you workout everyday? What workout do you use?
No. I don’t like to exercise but I do it because I know it’s good for me. I do like to walk in warm weather but I can’t do it when the weather is cold.
I use Denise Austin DVD’s that I order from Amazon.
7. Can you tell us about your family?
Hmm. What to say? I’m married to Wayne.
He’s a pastor and that makes me the pastor’s wife. We love doing ministry together. One of our favorite things is speaking together at marriage retreats. We love to encourage couples!
Wayne loves to fish, hunt, and anything else that has to do with the outdoors.
Obviously, God has a sense of humor because I’m a girly girl. I prefer being inside unless I’m laying by the pool or on a beach.
We have 2 grown children. Courtney, our daughter is the oldest. Cory is 15 months younger. Cory is an attorney and still single. He’s the one that keeps us all laughing!
Courtney has an elementary education degree but is currently working at State Farm in insurance sales. She has our only grandchild, Colt, and we are madly in love with him!
Here are some other things you may not know about me!
- I love chocolate although I limit myself these days. I also love coffee and can’t wait to get up and have that first cup!
- I’m an early riser! Any where between 4:30 and 5:30. I love mornings!
- My husband and I both have our concealed weapons license.
- I try to eat organic or clean. I’m not 100% but I eat a lot less processed food these days.
Okay, are there any other questions you think I need to add to this list? I would love your input!
Beauty For the Heart~~ I love discipleship classes and I’m starting a new one this week at our church. I’ve done this study before but it’s so good, it’s worth doing again. It’s Experiencing God by Henry & Richard Blackaby.
I’ll be sharing some of this with you, but here’s a quote from the book. “Real Christianity is not merely a religion; it is a relationship with a Person.”
Have a blessed day!Pin It
