Tour Through Blogland

Winding Road

Welcome to my stop on the "Tour Through Blogland!"  I've seen some of my favorite bloggers featured on the tour over the past few weeks and found several new blogs to follow through those posts! I was so excited when sweet Jessi from Jessi's Design invited me to be part the tour {check out her stop on the tour here}.

Martin Manifesto Blog

What am I working on right now?

Ummm…my next blog post? Actually, I’m not even working on that…yet! Unfortunately, I’m not one to pre-plan and schedule out my posts. I’ve made some notes for a couple of “Leslie Loves…” gift guides, so I’ll count that as my current project-in-progress. I’ve also been thinking about changing the layout/design of this little bloggety-blog. With that being said, I’m wide open to any suggestions/recommendations for blog designers!

How does my work differ from others in its genre?

Is my blog even in a genre? It's kind of a big 'ole mix of things: a little bit of fashion, a little bit of beauty, a lot of my life. I guess it's different just by the fact that it's mine. My thoughts and my perspectives are what make it unique. I write from my heart about whatever is on my mind. No two blogs are the same...that's what is so great about blogland. 

Why do I write/create what I do?

I first started blogging {on January 1 because I need defined beginnings like that} because a couple of my friends encouraged me to share products I love. Thus, the "Leslie Loves..." series was born. There's nothing better than hearing from a reader who bought one of my recommended products and loves it as much as I do! I also wanted a way to document what's going on in our lives. This little blog has become a sort-of scrapbook I can always come back to for memories.

How does my writing & creative process work?

I pretty much just wing it, which explains why I don't post EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. I'd love to post every day, but some days I just don't have anything relevant to say {I think the proper word for that is writer's block}...and some days I just don't have time {Ryan would tell you it takes me FOR-EV-ER to complete a post}. I write about what's going on in my life, things I'm interested in, products I love...whatever comes to mind on any given day. I guess the short answer to this question would be that I haven't quite defined/formalized my blogging process...yet. Wait, let's be honest...that's never gonna happen!
