|Interview with Sam Lee : Interview of a Professional Blogger : eAskme|
Ans: I am a mother of two at twenty-seven. I am currently a student working on my bachlors in social work. Forced to live a sheltered life I finally was able to break through from my partents home and to freedome where I have been able to see a great deal in the world. By world I mean my city and surrounding area. Not being able to afford anything but rent I am still stuck.
My husband lives with us in our 3 bedroom 2 bath house, that is dated back to the 60's with most of the original layout. Basically its falling apart.
So now here I am at home while my babies sleep blogging to combat the bordem of my life and feelings of helplessness, I get knowing we can't afford to live in a home for to much longer.
I recently lossed my job while I was pregnant with my second child. So here I am now trying my hand at blogging. I have so far only been doing it about month and trying to get a feel for different styles.
Blogging is a lot harder then it looks. With all the different types of blogs and how-to guides it seems there is and infinite amount of information to learn.
Q. How the idea to make your own blog came in your mind? How you found the right people to develop it and what big obstacles you faced?
Ans: After I lost my job I was on the computer reading blogs about everything. Then one day while looking through pinterest I stumbled upon a pin that read how to make your own blog.
I was sold since then. I have been trying to create my own blog. It has been a trying experience. I have been changing blog setting, writing posts, trying make a blog that will relate to the people.
I have been trying to do all my own. So far I have been able to figure out the basics.
Its great that they have been able to stupify creating a blog so almost anybody who want to make one can.
I just wish I would have started one sooner.
The obstacles I am currently facing are trying to figure out how to work the SEO. It is a complicated. There is so much to learn.
Another issue I have been facing is getting subscribers. Its really difficult to get followers. Without offering something for free to subscribers it would seem they don't have much of an interest in it.
That and I really don't have a lot of content on my site yet. Writing every day, but writing is not always so easy.
Q. Can blogging really change someone`s life?
Ans: With so many blogs out there, you can find pretty much anything or anyone. If you need to find help about something someone has made a blog about it.
Often times bloggers with do all the research part for you and give you the results saving you a lot of time on researching something yourself.
This can truly change someones life if they are able to get quick advice about an issure they are currently dealing with. I know it had helped me on more then one occasion.
It can also change the the life of a blogger giving them meaning, and a feeling of accomplishment.

Q. What is your daily schedule? And how do you maintain your tasks?
Ans: My daily schedule consists of editing my site and fixing any site errors first thing in the morning.
Then if I have time before the family get up I might start working on or editing my next blog post.
Then its time for the family hustle and bustle.
Afternoon I write and edit posts for my blogint eh evenings before bed I use social media to try and promote my blog.
Q. Blogging have different definition for different person. What is it for you?
Ans: Blogging is a way for people to give and gain knowledge. There is now right or wrong way to blog, just better ways of writing to help your readers understand.
Writing on a blog for most bloggers I believe is way to freely express what they feel and what they are interested.
For some it helps them feel accomplished, for others its just fun.
Blogging allows me to say what I want without being interrupted. It helps me tell the world things I feel they should know, whether they are reading my blog or not. I can maybe even one day help someone.
Q. Which are your favorite blogs?
Ans: Its hard to pinpoint my favorite blogs. I mostly just read what the ones I can learn from. Usually when I need to know something I Google what I need to know and go through the information of many different blogs. Most of the ones i enjoy are on child care, blogging, writing, and productivity.
Ans: Maybe an hour a day. I am in the early stages of getting my blog up and running, so right now I am mostly concerned about getting content in it.
Thats taking up most of time.
Once I am more content with my blog and have it set up to a point I feel comfortable, I will begin to spend more time on social media and SEO.
Q. How much time do you spend for blogging daily?
Ans: I spend two to three hours a day every day.
I typically spend a couple of hours every day writing, editing, re-editing and formatting the blog posts. And another half-hour on the images.
For every 1 hour, I spend writing my blog I put 10 hours to prepare it-I like to do it in my head.
Q. Finally, I would love to have your message for my readers and any suggestions for newbies?
Ans: Thank you for reading. Without the readers our blogs would be pointless. And if your a fellow blogger reading this, hope it helps. Best thing you can do for yourself is read. Not only do you usually learn something new, you can find inspiration and motivation within it as well.
