Thanks so much for joining us for another week of The Southern Special! Wasn’t it just last Tuesday yesterday? The past week has just flown by don’t you think? Anyways, this week we are doing a little something special! We have answered some fun get to know you questions that we would like to share with you!
How long have you been blogging? 2 years on June 18th
Why did you start blogging? I became an empty nester and needed to fill my time, plus friends and family had been asking me for years for recipes or to write a book. So blogging seemed like a good place to start.

Do you have any blogging advice? It’s a lot of work or a lot of fun, that is up to you. Like a baby, time consuming, don’t do it if you don’t love it and make it yours. There are a million articles on how to be a successful blogger, but my experience has been like anything else in life, what works for one does not always work for another. Find what works for you and stick with it.
