Hello there lovely readers! 
I'm Bronwyn & I blog over at Our Beautiful Blessings.
Over at my blog, I write about life. The life of a newlywed. The life of a Christian. The life of a college student. The life of an etsy shop owner. I love to write and I write in order to remember. I want to remember this time as a newlywed, and all that God is doing in my life. It's an incredible journey, and I hope you'll hop on over to my blog and spend a little time with me!

How did you first get involved with blogging? In late 2011, I had started reading a few blogs, and I just decided that I wanted to start one too. I started my blog in January of 2011, and about a month later, I discovered what an awesome community bloggers have really formed.

Has blogging played a role in the start of or development of your shop? If so, how? If not, tell us how your shop came about. Blogging had definitely played a role in the decision to open my etsy shop 'Dorable Poseys. I had previously considered opening a shop, but blogging really gave me the push to do it because I saw other bloggers opening shops. My husband and I really like the make things, so we thought we would try to make a little money by selling what we make. So far, we have fabric flower headbands and digital prints in our shop. We will soon have name signs as well.   

How do you come up with material/content for your blog each day, What inspires you? When I first began blogging, I would try to write about the same thing as other bloggers, but then I discovered that I have slightly different interests. I blog about my life and how God is working in my life. I also do a weekly series called Faith Friday, where I write about my faith and examine different passages in the Bible. I also blog about newlywed stuff.  

What has been the most challenging moment in being a blogger? For me, my most challenging moment was when I started finding a lot of blogs that started at the same time as I did that had 10x the amount of followers I had. But, it's really not about the number of followers, and I have some awesome followers.  

Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why? Mrs. Robinson from My New Wife Life. She was one of the first lovely ladies I really met in bloggy land. & I love reading her blog, and hearing about the heart she has for God. Erin from Sweetness Itself is an awesome lady, with a heart that is totally sold out to God. I love reading her blog. It's definitely inspiring and challenging.  

If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest? Definitely take some time to think about what you want to blog about. It's good to have a general focus going on even with a lifestyle blog. And, take the time to come up with a unique name that is totally you. Other than that, just get to writing, and look up some simple html helps to get started.  

What Social Networks are you on?  Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Bloglovin

What networking do you do, that you feel helps your blog and/or shop the most? So far, the thing that has helped to grow my blog the most and helped me to network is sponsor swaps. I've also found that participating in link-ups helps as well.

What goals do you have, if any, for your blog/shop right now and in the future? My goal is to really just keep blogging, being open about my life and how God is working in our lives. I'm also very excited to see how my blog will grow over the rest of this year.

What has been the best thing about blogging so far, feel free to share any exciting triumphs or milestones you have had or reached! :) I've had a great time just writing and meeting new people. I was also very excited when I reached 50 followers last month.  

Is there anything you know now that you wish you knew before you started blogging? I wish I had known about the awesome blogging community! I would have started blogging sooner.

Is there anything else you would like to share with my readers? I just want to say thank you for having me! & I hope you all will come check out my blog.
