Meet Terri, a local blogger who shows that one person can do several types of blogs – and they’re all very different from each other. 🙂
When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in 2007. I have several blogs! I started with my original (regular) blog “With An Angel on my Shoulder“. This blog is my general every day blog though it needs some updating. “Patches the Bear” is the story a little traveling bear and “Stamp with Ter” is where I post samples of creations I make for my Stampin’ Up! business. I also started a blog about my husband’s cancer journey “One Bear Hug at a Time.
What exactly made you start blogging?
The tagline to my original blog is “A Blog About What Came Next”. The tagline was inspired by part of a poem called ” A Song for Daniel” that goes like: “Your memories are a part of me, connecting me to what comes next”. My blog is about life after the loss of my little girl, and I started it in hopes to find some good things in life.
What motivates you to keep going?
I’m motivated by comments from people all around the world, and the fact that maybe my posts will inspire people.
Favorite post ever? Include a link to it
I don’t know if I have a favorite post…. The most popular posts seem to be my friday funnies and the word of the year posts.
What is the direction you are heading in with your blog?
No idea. I have been slacking lately, but I still enjoy it.
Tips for new bloggers?
Be yourself. Include photos. Try to be concise. Read and comment on other blogger’s posts. Your readers are most likely to be fellow bloggers.
What do you want people to know about you?
My name is Terri but most people call me Ter. I was born and raised in Manitoba. I have a severe-profound hearing loss. I don’t apologize for being me. I’ve been through a lot, and while it is a huge part of me (I’ll never be the same), it’s not all I am
