Beth from A to Z Stories
Introduce yourself to tip junkies.
Hi fellow Tip Junkies! My name is Beth from Home Stories A to Z, and I am a home blogger and addicted DIYer. I mostly blog about projects and home improvements I make to my home; however, my blog is a bit of a variety show of home crafts, decor trend alerts, blogging tips, mantel link parties, occasional recipes, and sponsored posts & giveaways. Unlike some home bloggers, I possess zero special talents! Seriously. Its true. Im just incredibly tenacious, resourceful, and willing to take risks. What this means for you is that if I can do it, you can too! In a nutshell, I dont take myself too seriously. I fumble through most of what I do, and most importantly, I believe in creating beauty out of chaos and sharing the stories with you!
What have you learned the past twelve months that's been a "game-changer" for your blog/business?
Oh wow. This question proves difficult for me because so much has "changed my game" in the last 12 months! I would say collaborating with other bloggers and gleaning all I can from what is working for others has enabled me to take my blog to the next level. I have a wonderful group of colleagues who freely share their knowledge and look out for each other. My advice to all new bloggers is to get on Twitter and start making friends! Collaboration is key in growing your blog.
What piece of advice have your received that you will never forget?
Answer emails. So many of my readers are fellow bloggers, and I am honored that they take time out of their crazy-busy lives to drop by and leave a comment or question for me. I don't have time to visit everyone's blog who visits mine, but I do try to respond to all comments, questions, and emails each day. I want my readers, my colleagues, and my friends to know how much I value them! Who do you look up to? Why? Another really difficult question to answer! I have so many different role models in my life from authors, to celebrities, to friends, to family members. Instead of just picking one person to highlight, I will focus on the common traits that I admire in all of them. All of my role models are down-to-earth and treat people with love, respect, and empathy. They are confident, outspoken, and willing to take a risk. They are fantastic communicators and problem solvers. They have a sense of humor and a sense of humility. They are teachers and at the same time remain teachable! Beth's Favorite Posts:
