I started blogging back in 2010 at Bakie Me Sweet.
After leaving a friend’s house following a play date, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted the spine of the original Cake Pops cookbook by Bakerella.
I had never even heard of cake pops. Nor, had I heard of Bakerella! It was after that day that I had to know exactly “who” Bakerella was & exactly what were “cake pops”?
In my discovery I found out that Bakerella was both the name of a blog and the moniker that belonged to Angie Dudley, the founder & author of Bakerella, the blog.
I started my blog on Blogger within minutes! I didn’t really know what I was doing but I had to be a part of this baking & blogging, “thing”. My first post was of, you guessed it, cake pops! Mine didn’t look nearly as good (and still don’t) as Bakerella’s but I was on my way.
Taking pictures was all-me and baking desserts was definitely all-me, too!
After blogging at Bakie Me Sweet for two years, I started a new blog called, “Love Farm Cake”. The purpose behind LFC was to address the numerous questions that I began to get about our farm & how to start a farm or garden.
We had started our own farm in the spring of 2010, ironically one month after I had began the baking blog. Mom after mom would reach out to me after either a play date or through mutual friends & I need a way to address several moms that had expressed interest, at once.
Part of my struggle back then was that I couldn’t find a way to connect the dots with these different areas of my life. I have since grown comfortable in my own blogging “skin” & can see how all of these various parts are in fact, interwoven.
My blogging philosophy is that a person’s blog should be a direct extension of themselves. Meaning, what you speak of should not be conjured up but should flow naturally & come from a place within.
Your blog should answer a question & YOU should want to read it.
The mission for Things She Makes is to share tips & ideas to help make the life of the everyday mom that much easier.
