Can you tell us a little about yourself and Your blog (and shop if you have one)?

My name is Carrie and I blog over here:
milleighfrances...the blog
I am 33 and have been married for 8 years. No babies yet. Although I get asked that almost on a daily basis!  We (I) have struggled with infertility and we’ve (I’ve) been on an emotional roller coaster for the last several years. I am finally at a place where I am just feeling good about that situation and am at peace with possibly never having my own children. I have three older sisters, 3 nieces and 2 nephews.  Love my family. And I have the best mom in the world. Seriously. She is awesome.

I started my blog, milleighfrances...the blog, and my shop, milleighfrances, as an outlet for some stress relief.  This past January I lost a dear friend unexpectedly and that’s been hard to get through. I started crafting a little more and decided to start selling some of the stuff I made. It has been such a big help to keep my mind off of things.

How did you first get involved with blogging?
A couple of years ago I was online looking for info on infertility and I came across a blog, The Heir to Blair, and that’s where my love of blogs came from.  From her blog I
found other blogs, and so on.  I “stalked” some blogs for a while and finally decided to do it myself!  I loved the idea of not only keeping a little diary for myself, but also meeting new people. I am typically a pretty shy person, so I thought maybe this could help me!

How do you come up with material/content for your blog each day, What
inspires you?
I am very new to the blogging world so right now my posts are pretty much what I’ve done that day, etc. I’m hoping to get a little more interesting in time!!

What do you think is the most challenging thing about starting a blog?
I think just the nerves that go along with it.  Will people like me? Will I sound funny or crazy?  What in the world am I going to say? What if no one ever follows me?  You know, just the typical things someone that is insecure thinks!!!

Everyone has a favorite or least favorite post, name yours and why?
I don’t think I have either yet!  I am so new and I don't really feel like I've completely come out of my shell, but I'm starting to more and more!  I guess "Get it Girl" is probably my favorite...It kind of showed the real me and it also mentioned my first craft fair for milleighfrances.

Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
This is a tough one!  I have so many blogs that I love to read!
Definitely The Bargain Blonde. I love her blog!  She always has the best posts and she is so
funny.  Love her!! (And she was my first follower!) 

Raven at A Momma’s Desires and Pacifiers is absolutely
hilarious. Love her blog!  She is a mommy blogger, but she is so much more than that!
She literally makes me laugh every day.

This little trio is awesome – Sabrina, Shalyn and Erica
they just had their first blogger meet up and their recap was hilarious. 

They totally make me want to meet my bloggy friends!!

Meli Faif is an awesome blog.  I pretty much know that when I click on there
I am going to be inspired!  And her little Red Curlz is ADORABLE!!

KLaw, Bananas, Little Woman and Erin are some of my other

There are seriously so many more…I wish I could shout out to
them all!

What goals do you have, if any, for your blog/shop right now and in the future?
Right now I am just focusing on having fun on both the blog and the shop!  I have a full time job, so I’m not doing either for the money.

What Social Networks are you on for your blog?
Sadly I am on none!  I have been anti myspace, facebook, twitter, etc for as long as they’ve
existed.  I know people say to grow your blog you need to do these things, but I’m just not there yet!

Is there anything you know now that you wish you knew before you started blogging?
I am so new and still learning that I don’t think there is anything yet…

What has been the best thing about blogging so far, feel free to share any exciting triumphs or milestones you have had or reached! :)
The best thing is just “meeting” other bloggers!  All the ones I have talked to have been so
supportive and helpful.  I’m only at 16 followers, and if I get over 20 I’ll probably freak out!! Lol!

Is there anything else you would like to share with my readers?
Just thank you so much for the interview!  I hope I am able to meet a bunch
of friends from it!  

Thanks for reading everyone, hop on over to my blog and say hi anytime!
