Questions I Ask Myself

1- Why do you put YouTube videos on your posts?
For obvious jamming out reasons. My posts are so cool they have their own theme songs. Duh. Plus, since I haven't organized or pimped out my playlists on YouTube yet, I can simply look at my site.

2- What's in your shower that you can't live without?

Boots Botanicals Microdermabrasion Polish Age Defense is gritty awesome sauce.

MAC Cosmetics used to make one. Then they discontinued it and life as I knew it was over until I found this scrub. I use it in the mornings about 2-3 times / week. You can get it at Target stores in person like me, or online as well. Use it in the mornings so your foundation will look smooth, possibly without the need for use of a primer. Why exfoliate? Dead skin harbors bacteria, which creates pimples and blemishes. Using circular motions meanwhile avoiding the upper eye area, scrub it in for about two minutes. Then, Voila! Smooth awesome sauce. For right around $12.99!

3- How do you juggle writing from home, cleaning the house, doing makeup, being a mom & an amazing wife?

Okay, fine. I put the amazing wife part in there. Obviously I wrote these questions! Bwa ha ha! (That's my witchy vampire laugh.) To answer your question, I don't. In fact, I think I suck at it. I ain't scurred or confused to admit this. I need more money, another car, an actual house to call our own, a maid, a full time laundry folder and even more money so I can build up my blogs to make my business dreams come true. I'd take over the world if I could, but I can't at this current juncture in my life. Hubs and I are so stressed out trying to make our simple ends meet with our family of four. For some reason, God hasn't given me a full time job offer lately and all I can think is that this economy stinks. Right now I'm trying to work around my hubs full time hours. Maybe I'm supposed to be doing what God wants me to, which is blogging. Who knows. All I know is I'm not going to sit still waiting for the big money job offers to roll in. Daycare is expensive & something that must be factored in when accepting a full time position. Don't even get me started on car payments, gas & lunch expenses. Sometimes you have to make your own dreams a reality. So, I'm up in here trying to show the world that: Yes, you can create your own job as well as eventually make money at it. Makeup's my love and part-time jobberson. If I can help women become more confident in themselves as well as in their beauty routines on a mass scale, then I will be happy doing so. Now... poo on the haters, Mister Ed. Fling some maneur at them with your horse hooves. Finally, bayonet them. Like Pinky and the Brain, eventually I will show the world as well as teach them how I became successful with just a will and a way, with zero dollars in my pocket. Cue in the people who want to gift me a video camera. I'm fairly comfortable enough blogging now & YouTube is my next pet project. Sham wow! More awesome sauce, please...

4- What's your secret?
Watching and reading The Secret over and over again. Optimists unite. The world sucks enough with negative energy, demotivating us at every corner we turn. I'm on the good vibe road.

5- Does anyone in your life understand what you do on the daily?

I think not. Most probably think that my blogging adventures are a hobby instead of a lucrative job choice in the future. However, you've got to put the time in. It's an investment. You can't run a mile without taking the first step, yo. The world needs to understand the power of a blogger from a marketing & advertising perspective. Businesses dream of being in front of your peoples. In this economy, businesses had to cut waaayyyy back on their marketing expenses. What bloggers provide is a warm lead list, so to speak, of which these businesses didn't have to market to in the first place. Bloggers not only promote businesses, but also create digital content. Trust me when I tell you that 90% of businesses don't even know how to market themselves. I used to be in B2B. Furthermore, if you see them opening up full time positions in this economy for their own in-house associate, holler at this sister right hurrr! Any who, I am basically becoming my own advertising power house & in the future you'll see me monetizing my blog, complete with ad space. And whistles. And bayonets.

There are waaayyyy worse things I could be doing with my time...
