I am thrilled to introduce you to our very first Featured Blogaholic, Crissa of BellaBud! Crissa is a new blogger finding her way through the blogging world but it looks like she has got it down good so far! It can often take a while for one to figure out their blogging voice but Crissa is a natural! She blogs about life, family, and all things positive! Her blog is fun to read as she has that special touch of humor that makes you laugh out loud.
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I am a wife, and a mom of two wonderful children, Isabella and Ethan. I'm a career woman - I work full time during the day and sell Thirty-One gifts in my spare time.
I absolutely love to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy taking pictures and I have an amazing knowledge for t.v. trivia and a slightly unhealthy obsession for John Mayer ;) I LOVE animals, especially dogs! I love the the Pittsburgh Steelers and the color Pink.
How did you get started blogging?
I started following a friend's blog, Keira at 'A Pretty Penny Blog' and just loved her style. I was a loyal follower and then began hitting links of her favs. It was such a great outlet for me. I felt like I had all of these friends, who I didn't even know. I was inspired to start my own blog as a sort of "release". I have a lot of random thoughts, I love to make people laugh, and I like to share inspiration. Blogging has given me the ability to do just that.
How did you come up with the title for your blog?
I'm glad you asked! I love pretty things and nothing is prettier than the word "Bella" which means beautiful in Italian. It also happens to be my daughter's (nick)name. "Bud" came from my son, he's my husband's little Buddy and many times I hear him call him "Little Bud". BellaBud was inspired by my children and it also became a great reference word for 'Beautiful Beginning' because as I say "it's never too late to have a beautiful beginning.
What do you love most about blogging?
Freedom to be ME and release my inner creativity. I hope to gain a few fabulous friendships through blogging.
