This week's featured blogger is Gena, from "Life with Captain FussyBuckets"
1) Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because we were living with my parents, hubby was trying to get a job, we had a 2 year old and a four month old and I needed a creative outlet!
2) How did you come up with the name for your blog?
When our now three year old was a baby, he was very fussy. He had tummy/colic issues and also was just always hard to get to sleep and stay asleep, so we began calling him Captain Fussybuckets when he would have his fits. We don't call him that often now, but it's a funny way to remember those early days as new parents.
3) What is your blog about?
I like to blog about our life and stuff that's on my mind. Of course I like to review and giveaway items, post recipes and crafts, and other fun ideas for families with preschoolers and toddlers to do.
4) What is one thing in your life you are most proud of?
I'm proud of our little family and what it has become. It seems like when we got married, we were so young and naive and you know, when you get married you think you have all the answers and it will all be so easy. Well, having two children and hitting some bumps along the way has really strengthened us and taught us a lot. And leaning on God for support rather than ourselves has taught us a lot, too.
5) What were you like as a teenager?
I was a homebody! I liked to be social with friends, but I also liked to stay at home and read and listen to music. not surprisingly, once we got the internet in our house, I was busy exploring it a lot!
6)Do you have any special talents?
I'm a creative cook. I can also type really fast. ha!
7) Your friends/family would describe you as....?
Quiet, caring, and hopefully a good friend!
8) If you could give one piece of advice about starting a blog, what would it be?
Be prepared for a lot of work. It looks a lot easier than it actually is. And if you have kids that need constant attention and don't nap well, forget it! :)
