So much goes into blogging, there is writing and content, photography and design, and understanding the platform you are working with. By researching I became to understand that blogging is not just putting some words together and inserting a couple of pictures. It was very overwhelming for me at first and it is still a learning curve for me. But so many other bloggers out there have posts to assist in the process. Three bloggers that I absolutely love and have read all their stuff is Thirteen Thoughts, From Roses and Wonder Forest. They all cover different aspects of blogging from topics to write about, photography, growing your blog and the platform. Check out their blogs if you want to learn a lot about blogging. All three of these ladies are awesome and supply a wealth of knowledge!!

When I decided that I wanted to start blogging, I started my research on what I needed to do. I am someone who believes in research so I began my research on blogging. I read every book I could get my hands on, read every blog post on what I needed and watched everything on YouTube on the topic.

Father’s Day is right around the corner and I wanted to give you guys some ideas on gifts you can give that special dad in your life. Personally, this Father’s Day is going to be a difficult one for me because this will be my first Father’s Day without my dad. But I’m sure my family and I will do something special to keep his memory alive. I wanted to add gifts for all types of dads out there. The preppy dad, the tech dad and the casual dad. I did not add any cologne or ties because not everyday lives that lifestyle.  But I did want to add things that dads need in their every day life.  Have a wonderful Father’s Day and make that day extra special for the dad in your life.

Let me know how you are spending your Father’s Day?

Happy Monday,

In my previous post I mentions that my mother is not into clothes, shoes and bags so this post goes out to her and mother’s like her.  There are mother’s that have other interest besides those things.  Everyone has their vice whether it is jewelry or other things like home goods.  My mother’s is jewelry, decorating and furniture. 🙂
