Blog Tour: My Writing Process

So I've seen this blog tour going around and I sooooooo wanted to be a part of it, but was afraid I might not get the chance. Then low and behold... last week I got an email from Kenzie over at Chasing my Extraordinary
 and she asked if I wanted to be a part of it! OMG seriously, of course I'd love to!!!! Kenzie found my little ole blog what seems like a years ago and we've seriously become very good friends (or so I think :)). We're constantly emailing each other, texting and snap chatting. We have lots in common between our love of horses, our significant others (my husband her fiancĂ©) and kids! That's one good thing blogs bring to people, friendship with people they may not have met otherwise!


What am I working on?
Does losing my mind count :). No currently for the el Bloggo here I'm working on finishing up Blogtober that is hosted by Helene and Tay. I also have a bunch of prompts that I found here while back that when I get into a writing slump I jump to. I'm in a Document Design class and constantly learning more and more about design and hoping to fix some things that weren't jiving just right for my blog and me so if you've been noticing changes, that's why. Otherwise I also blog about life as I know it.

How does my work differ from others of its type/genre?
I grew up on a farm. I can do the city life and I absolutely love the city, but I blog about life on the farm too. Traveling is another thing that just absolutely tickles my fancy and cooking or even eating out. To me this is a bit of a lifestyle journal in a way. I'm scared that someday when something happens to me, people won't remember who I am and this is a way to make my mark on the world... or at least my little piece of the blogosphere.

Why do I write what I do? 
I want to remember life. I used to scrapbook and I love looking back and remembering. I actually started this blog just after my husband and I started dating and it is so much fun to sit here and go back over how life has changed in 5 years. I've gone from barely dating to being married and having a baby. I also sometimes just write whatever is on my mind. I've always wanted to make a difference and maybe, just maybe I'll put a post up that might help someone some day in some way...
How does my writing process work?
Truthfully I write a lot of my posts while I'm driving down the road or in the shower. Then I have to get somewhere where I can either write them down or type them out and usually by then I've forgotten. I hate that. That's how it was all while I was working on my under grad degree. I always said I wanted to create something to take in the shower with me so I could write my papers. Funny I know but true, oh so true. My husband says my writing and my writing process has changed since I started this blog and I'm not sure if that is a good thing or if it is a bad thing. It makes me sit back and scratch my head and wonder. Especially since we all know my original post was so profound... yuck yuck yuck!

Emmy from EmmyMom is a blogger I feel like I've followed forever. I don't know who found who first but my first real memory of Emmy was from the Yearly review back in like 2010 or 2011, something like that. I love her pictures and am constantly picking her brain from everything dealing with photography to her religion to kids, you name it I've probably asked her at some point or another... lol. She's always so willing to talk to me and I absolutely love it! She blogs about her life in Southern California, her children and her faith and everything in between.

Kellie over at Smell my Dairy Air, can I just say how much I LOVE the title of her blog? I really think she found my blog first but I'm so glad she did. She is another one of those people who I can carry on a conversation with even though we're in different parts of the country. She blogs about her kids and her crazy animals, although they aren't always crazy and how she bought a wine making kit which I'm still waiting to see how that works! And it makes me happy I don't bare the winters they have up in Wisconsin, that's for sure. I'm a wuss!
