I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful lady at Blissdom in February. She’s every bit as sweet in person, as she was to work with, so I’m very excited to introduce this week’s Blog of the Week.
Amber, Brunch With Amber
Explain the meaning behind the name of your blog.
When I originally began blogging, my name was "A Day in the Life of Amber" - I felt that was too common, and I wanted something different and a little shorter. I began thinking of titles, and I also knew I wanted my name in there. I wanted something "classy and fun" but a little uncommon. And then, Brunch with Amber was born. :)
How long have you been blogging? Why did you start blogging?
I have been blogging since June 2010. Almost 2 years, whoa! I started my blog one day when I was bored at work and surfing the web. I stumbled across a blog, and thought, "I could do this too!" So it began. I've always loved writing and journaling, so this was a way to do it online which is easier to archive, in my opinion.
What do you love most blogging?
I love the friendships I've made and all of the amazing people I've met through blogging. Hands down, that is the best thing. When I began blogging I had no idea I'd make friends at all. I didn't know how it worked. Now? Some of my best friends are ladies I met through blogging. I text/heytell/email/snail mail with so many amazing woman who I've been lucky enough to becoming friends with, thanks to blogging. :)
What's the most surprising thing you've discovered since you began blogging?
That there are so many other people out there like me. So many other people who are dealing with the same issues and problems that I am. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I'm feeling down/lonely and feel like I'm the only person in the world who feels that way. Then, I stumble across a blog post of a blog I follow, and know that they've been there too. It's SO nice to know someone else feels the exact same way that you do. You're not alone, even when it feels like you are.
What is the one thing you want others to know about yourself, or your blog?
I want my readers to know that I am a fun-loving girl who tries not to take life too seriously. I keep my blog posts very light-hearted and fun, with the occasional serious post thrown in for good balance. I try to write about things that not only describe me, or interest me, but things that I hope will appeal to my readers. I want to keep them coming back for more each day!
