Blog-erview With Kim of Kim's Kreations

Its Wednesday and time again for another Blog-erview!!!
 
Lets welcome Kim from Kim's Kreations to Agape Love Designs!!

If you are new here, find out about the Blog-erview Series, as well as a list of previous blog-erviews {here}!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  Can you tell us a little about yourself and Your blog (and shop if you have one)?
         My name is Kim Bowers and I blog over at Kim's Kreations. I have been married to my best friend, Jeremy, for two and a half years. I am a Preschool Teacher and Assistant Director at a Christian Preschool and I love it! I love God and am doing my best to make His name famous and to show others His love.


    I started blogging a while ago when it was the "new" way to communicate to people, but quickly gave up on that. In May of this past year, I revamped my blog and opened up my Etsy shop. The reason I blog is to share creative ideas with people, to inspire and encourage, to express myself and to hopefully make some life long friendships along the way!
 
How did you first get involved with blogging?
          I think I kind of answered this already. At first, I started blogging to keep in touch with others. I still blog for that reason, but also so I can share life with others in the blog world. One of my favorite things is to find a blog that encourages me, if I could be that blog for someone else that would be a real honor! 

How do you come up with material/content for your blog each day, What inspires you?
        I wish I could blog everyday! That is a goal for my future when I don't have to work full time. Until then, I blog when I can and I am trying to blog more often. At least on a weekly basis if not more. I am often inspired by talks I have with my husband. He inspires me so much! I am also inspired by other blogs (like Maria's!) and the way others think.


  What has been the most challenging moment in being a blogger?
    As of right now that most challenging thing is making time to be a blogger! I am terrible at time management, but I am making an extra effort to step up my game. I hope and pray I succeed, because blogging is such a passion of mine and not something I want to just throw aside.

 Everyone has a favorite/least favorite post. Name yours and why?
    I actually have a few favorites: One titled - Jared Hagemann and the other titled -Dear April.
 The first one is my favorite, because it was a tribute to my friend, Jared, who was in the military and after several tours to Afghanistan and suffering PTSD took his own like on June 28, 2011. He was a dear friend in high school and in this post I was able to express my feelings towards him and honor him the best way I knew how.
 The second, is a letter to my sister that I never had the chance to meet. It is a letter of what I wish I could have said to her.
    Both of these are about or have to do with the death of a loved one, but they mean the most to me. They are real, in them I shared my heart.

Read any of my posts from when I was very first starting out, and those would be the ones I least like.


Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
   Rachel at No. 17, Ashley at Little Miss Momma, and you (Maria) at Agape Love!!! All of these women are beautiful inside and out. They are constantly writing encouraging post, being creative, and sharing from their hearts! True inspirations and wonderful women that I LOVE! 


What goals do you have, if any, for your blog/shop right now and in the future?
    My main goal is to set aside time to blog! I am planning on re-doing my shop and re-launching it sometime in the Spring/Summer. It will still be open and I will be adding new things, but it will be better and packed with more items when the Summertime starts getting closer! Keep a look out and all advice and help is welcomed and appreciated!
   


 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 about blogging so far is being able to connect with different people that I may not have known otherwise. To be able to encourage and inspire others that encourage and inspire me! i love comments and new followers and as I said before being able to share life with people. Blogging has been a great outlet for me and has allowed me to be more creative and to grow so much!
