Blogging Secrets with And Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson.

Megan has one of those blogs that is so honest and well written that you want to just reach through the computer and give her a hug for helping you just by being herself. She's never afraid to put everything out there on the table even if it's real. I love that she is absolutely herself and she will inspire you to think differently about your own life. Seriously! It's a pleasure to have her here today. Make sure to go say hi here after you read her interview :)

What do you blog about?

I guess my blog is a little bit of everything. But I think everyone says that maybe? ha. So to be more specific, my blog is about my life as a wife, mother, dreamer, and an insecure, anxiety-ridden woman [which, what woman isn't a little insecure and filled with some kind of anxiety?]. Basically, it's about my real life, all the ups and downs and the lessons I {try} to learn from it. I like to share my stories in hopes that I can not only look back and remember something that has happened, but also to be able to relate to and inspire other women who may be looking for some much needed support. I believe we all have something to share that will uplift and encourage others. It doesn't have to be anything huge, just your perspective. That's what I hope to do with my blog!

Why did you start blogging?
I initially started blogging {like most people} to keep my family and friends updated with my life. I'm not good with journal keeping or family update emails. So blogging was the easier way to stay in touch and show my family that I was actually being safe & responsible in college. :) After I had my son, I started to really struggle emotionally with all that was going on in my life. I felt really alone and didn't really know what to do. So I started reaching out to others and realized there were a lot of other women who have felt the exact same way. I thought how silly it was that so many of us were struggling yet no one seemed to be talking about it. I decided I wanted to change that and started blogging my story. I wanted to be open and honest about every part of my life. It has been an absolutely amazing journey and I have met so many awesome & inspiring people along the way. I have seriously loved every minute of it! 

What's something your readers know about you?
Hm... good or bad? I'm probably a little afraid of what they know haha. They know that I have a crazy, cute little boy named Elijah who I absolutely love but also drives me up the wal. They also know that I am married to my husband Adam who just started dental school and we basically have the most perfect marriage. {Not! That was sarcasm. I am definitely very open that our marriage goes through ups and downs like any normal couple}. What I hope they know is that I am the same person on and off the blog and that I really do care. I hope they know that I will always be honest and I will always be myself. And I hope they know that even if I had a bad day, I am always learning and progressing {and I hope I don't scare them off :)}. 

Describe your personal style in five words. 
[can it be six?] Whatever makes me feel like me :)

What can't you live without? 
Besides the obvious answer of "my family," I also can't live without Oreo milkshakes. I cannot stress to you enough their importance in my life!

What inspires your blog posts? 
A lot of my posts come from when I just learned a hard, much-needed lesson about my life. After reflecting on an experience, my eyes are sometimes opened to something I didn't notice before or needed reminding. Those are some of my favorite posts when I can share my experiences with others.

What about when you feel uncreative? 
I go out and live life! It is hard to write about a topic, any topic, if you are sitting around and not actually experiencing and enjoying life. So when I'm in a bind, I go out with my family and friends and just get away from the pressure of writing and that's when I get most of my inspiration.

How has your blog changed over time?
I think my blog has changed a lot and in a lot of different ways. There's an ebb and flow of I think. I can look back and tell what month I was feeling less inspired and other months when I couldn't stop writing. I think for the most part it has changed into me not being worried as much about what others think of what I have to say. I used to be so afraid of offending people by being too open. But after a while {and after some kind, positive feedback from others} I have gained more courage to share my stories. That's not to say I don't care about what people think altogether, there are still a lot of things I'm insecure about in regards to my blogging. But in terms of topics and writing style I have grown a lot more confident. 

How has blogging changed you?
Going along with the last answer I think in turn blogging has made me more confident. I seriously feel like I am possibly the most sensitive, insecure person ever. I know I'm not, but there are days where just everything gets to me and I feel so out of place with everyone. But blogging has really helped me to get out of my shell and own up to myself. I used to be a lot more outgoing than I am now and a lot more carefree & confident. Blogging has helped me remember that I am important, that I do have something to say, and that I really am worth it. Seriously, the blogging community has become this amazing blessing in my life!

What advice do you have for new bloggers? 
I have three things I would say to new bloggers.
1. Be yourself {and don't care what anyone else says!} and don't stray from the reason you started blogging.
2. Be proud yet humble of your blog and your accomplishments
3. Be kind 
If you can do those three things, you are golden! 
{I wrote a post kind of about it here, actually if you want to check it out :)}

Last but not least! What blogs inspire you? 
This is a hard one cause so many blogs inspire me for so many different reasons. I love After Nine to Five because I'm pretty sure we share the same brain and she inspires me to always be myself. I love Enjoying the Small Things because she always helps me see the good and absolutely amazing things this world has to offer, even in the everyday little moments. I love Little Miss Momma because she helps me feel like I'm not alone when I get frustrated and overwhelmed with all this motherhood stuff. I love Tatertots & Jello and The Idea Room for all their amazing amazing craft ideas and I wish I could be as creative as them. I love The Langs because it is always so hilarious and witty and hey are basically my heroes in life. And I could go on and on and on.... there's so many I love! :)


  1. What a perfect day to come across your blog! Very happy to 'meet' you today and I couldn't be happier to read your sarcastic 'perfect marriage' comment. I'm a newlywed and desperately have been looking for affirmation that married life is different, difficult, (also amazing) but I like to hear about some real stuff sometimes! Not always all the good things. Anyway, I'm happy to have found your blog today and I'll be checking back here!!
