September Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

You meet a ton of bloggers in this sphere, but a small few stand out. The blogger that I chose to spotlight in September is one of them. Everyone has their own reasons for writing or sharing their life story. She is no different. Her passion for sharing her stories and photography with the world is inspiring and contagious. If you ask her, she will say she’s living her dream but I would argue that she’s probably living a lot of other people’s dreams of picking up, leaving the city, and living that quaint life on a farm! She’ll also be the first to tell you it wasn’t without a ton of work and elbow grease, but it is equally rewarding in the end.

This is probably the longest of these features in this series thus far and truthfully, it was much longer than this. I found all of her answers so thoughtful and intriguing so I did my best to cut it down into a digestible post. This was the final product, I hope I did her life story justice (but all the more reason to check her out for yourself)!

Without further ado, I introduce you to Continue reading

June Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

The blogger I wanted to spotlight in June is someone I aspire to be. She’s a crusader for living green. What does that mean? Well, she details it so beautifully on her blog. She “firmly believes that if everyone makes just a few small changes, we can have a positive impact on the planet, the people around us, and our own wellbeing.” Her simple-living ideas have helped many of her followers (including me) focus on what truly matters beyond the material goods we can acquire in life. She has a big voice and she’s not afraid to use it! And best of all, she’s a Canadian like me! Finally, a friend who understands me when I write about the colourful behaviour of my favourite neighbours in the centre who honour and favour this very bloug blog.

April Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

I am delighted to announce that the blogger I chose to spotlight for the month of April is a mom and a published author. Her weekly posts (usually about her adventures in Jiu Jitsu training) are hilarious and thoroughly entertaining. She started her blog years ago telling stories about her motherhood journey, focusing on “the comedic aspect of child-raising.” She says, “No parent in their right mind would say bringing up children comes without its difficulties. But often the tragic moments become humorous over time and with new perspective.”

March Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

The blogger I chose to spotlight for the month of March is someone who shares the same type of religious blogging schedule as I do. He posts weekly (on Tuesdays) come hell or high water. What strikes me about him is that he takes the time to engage with his readers through his own blog and also through his readers’ blogs. I find so much inspiration from him through his work and find his honesty refreshing. His blog is so relevant to me because he shares his real struggles and successes with his writing journey, and his writers’ work ethic is incredibly admirable!
