What Is Your Blog All About?


Holidays, of corse, but also about everyday special and making the most of life.
When And How did you start Blogging?


I have been blogging for about a year and a half. I started my blog both as a way to inspire others and keep myself organized. I literally took my holiday calendar and turned it into the holiday challenge. I have since found that it has helped me to remember to take time for myself (which is no small task as a mom of three). It has also challenged me to develop my creativity to a level I never thought I could attain.


Blogs I Like (Characteristics)


I love blogs with lots of photos and beauty. Blogs that are thoughtfully written, with helpful ideas for everyday living.

Blogs I Dislike (Characteristics)



Ones that are mostly advertising or give-aways. While I do not mind the occasional ad or the like (after all most blogs are written by moms who would benefit from a little extra money) the blogs where most every post is an ad or give away I find hard to follow.
What Motivates you to Blog?

I love sharing ideas with others. When someone tells me that they used an idea and I inspired them to create a memory with there loved ones, there is no better reward than that! Plus in creating posts I have learned ways to add beauty to my own home, give hand made gifts, and make wonderful recipes. Remembering to take time for myself, I have found, also blesses my family.


Who Are your Target Readers?


Women, mostly moms, though I have readers with grown children. I have found that children love my blog too. (And I love that!)
What is Your Most
Favorite post and Why?

What an amazing life' is probably my favorite post on Holiday Haven because it gives insight into who I am, and is probably the closest post I have to describing what I am working to accomplish with my site.

Things We Should Expect from your Blog these succeeding months
Father's day is coming up and I have lots of great ideas! Plus I will soon be sharing vacation ideas again.
Tips For Our Readers About Blogging

The single best traffic tip I can give is: name your photos! More than half of the traffic I get comes from google's image search. The best time management tip I can give is: instead of living your life to create a blog, use your website to keep you on schedule in your life.
