Saturday Spotlight: Life Behind the Blogger is a feature done each Saturday that introduces you to a blogger you may already know or a new blogger for you to get to know. This feature gives you a peak into the personal life of the blogger. Getting to know the special person behind the beautiful blog.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland so enjoy getting to know these talented bloggers each Saturday.
Before I begin I would like to take a moment to thank Kris for shining a spotlight on me today. I am happy to be featured on her blog and grateful for her friendship.
Hello, I’m Katherine. Tea drinker, hug giver and friend maker at Katherine’s Corner. I am an open minded and spiritual person who strives to always maintain a positive attitude and greet each new day with grace, dignity and gratitude. Originally from England and Living in the US since 1975, I have a rare dual citizenship. I am a proud citizen of both the UK and the USA. I am happily married to my best friend. I am a Mother to one (she’s 35) Grandmother to five (ages 5-16) and I am also Mama to our sweet dog Izzy.
I invite you to get better acquainted by visiting my About Page HERE. I love to make new bloggy friends. When I am not blogging I am a self-employed artist and designer at Keepsakes By Katherine, Be Well Gifts and Blog Art By Katherine.
At Katherines Corner I share a variety of things that make me smile. Recently I shared decorating with precious mementos, baked blueberry scones, wanderlust and the new giveaway. You'll find plenty of other goodies too.
You will find my blogging schedule is pretty consistent. • Monday- is Make It Monday” a day filled with features and inspiration from the previous weeks blog hop. • Tuesday- a new recipe is shared. • Thursday- is time for Thursday Favorite Things blog hop ( it actually starts Wednesday night at 7 pm MST) I invite you to link up and share your blog. You will find blogs for everyone; style blogs, lifestyle blogs, recipe blogs, makeup blogs, craft blogs, faith blogs and more • Friday/Saturday/Sunday you will find new giveaways, life stories, DIY/crafts, makeovers, blogging tips, etc.
I started blogging when I received a rejection letter from a publisher. It was a nice rejection, well as nice as being rejected can be. Not your standard “fill in the blank with the authors name ” rejection, although I did have a few of those. It read something like this-, “ loved your writing, the photographs are beautiful, but…we are not taking on any unknown authors at this time.”So taa daa...Katherines Corner (originally known as Go Ask Katie) was born. Who said we can’t control our destiny? I am very happy my road led to blogging. I am motivated to keep blogging by my desire to share with others. Bloggy friendships are amazing! The hugs felt through comments and emails and the bond between blog friends brings me true joy.
I am often asked "What do you do if you get writers block as a blogger? All writers/bloggers have experienced this at least once. I like to describe my blogging style as reliable, comfortable, worth reading and filled with sharing spirit. It is with that in mind that I can move forward when I find myself “blocked”. Meditation and a look around at the things I enjoy motivates me and the stagnant fog of writers block leaves quickly. I actually have a second blog, Be Well Gifts blog where I post guided meditation and more.
I share blogging tips regularly at Katherines Corner. I have a whole blogging tips section HERE. When I first dipped my toe into the blogging pool ( it felt more like an ocean) I found very little being shared about how and what to do. I found my way stumbling in the dark. So I keep the light on for bloggers new and old with my blogging tips. I do my best to keep informative and useful information updated regularly.
The best thing a blogger can give to their readers is, to give of themselves. I know that may sound cliché. But, bloggers need to be true to themselves in order to reach the readers. Not a carbon copy of other blogs. Do not, and I mean DO NOT compare your blog to another, especially a blog that has been around a while. It important to remember that it is a blog, not your life. Move away from your computer, live your life. Then sit down and share it with us. We look forward to reading about it. I am a planner and I find my need to plan works well for blogging. I’m currently setting up giveaways ( I have one every month) and planning new recipes to share. If you would like to be part of Katherines Corner giveaway circle of friends I would love to have you. Please send me a note and I will add your name to the list and you will be invited to be a hostess of an upcoming giveaway.
It has been a pleasure sharing with you I hope you will stop by for a visit. I'm social too lets connect and share ♥
