It's been quite a week. Let's say that my cup has not been running over in patience this week, BUT I have my mug of tea ready to go and I'm looking forward to the break that is The Sunday Sip. Won't you join me?
Today we are sitting down with Diana from Nanny to Mommy.
For me, it is a chai tea latte every single morning. How about you, what are you drinking this morning?
Definitely coffee. Preferably Donut House or Starbucks. But as long as I have French vanilla coffee creamer I'm good to go. How can you not have caffeine in the morning with little ones running around? :)
For me, Tea Time is Me Time! Would you like to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Diana. And I am a full time Work-at-Home Wife & Mommy Blogger. I watch my friend's daughter who is a month almost to the day younger than mine.
I'm sure it is lots of fun at your house--almost like having a set of twins during the day, huh?
We love to hear the story behind blog names. And I bet your blog name says something about you. Tell us why you chose “Nanny 2 Mommy”?
I am a former Nanny. When I started my blog in July 2010, I was pregnant with my daughter and a Nanny for two adorable children. The family I was a Nanny for was like my family. I, unfortunately, had to take an unplanned leave from being their Nanny at the end of my pregnancy.
Do you have a favorite post you would like to share? What was your inspiration for writing it?
One of my favorite posts is: 7 Things I Won't Feel Guilty About
My inspiration? Honestly, I was tired of all the drama and pressure my mother-in-law was putting on me.
What made you decide to start blogging? As our anniversary rolls around it is interesting to look back at how far we have come. How about you, have you stayed true to your original vision since the beginning or have you changed along the way? Where do you see your blog going and growing to in the future?
I started blogging originally on Tumblr to keep track of my weight loss journey and journey to get pregnant, but God had different plans and I got pregnant right away despite what healthcare professionals said. But I have been blogging since 2003 on LiveJournal and Blurty because I love to write. I still blog about SweetPea which is why I started blogging on Blogger. But it has transformed to my entire life story and not just centered about my life as a first-time mommy. And I honestly don't know what I want out of my blog. I was hoping to maybe make a little income, maybe review some products, but have been having so much fun and meeting friends along the way that my expectations are limitless at this point.
Thanks for talking with us today, Diana! We've one last question for you: What makes you "More than Mommy"?
I love to write, and edit HTML. I love to make videos and social network. Being a blogger, whether a mommy blogger or not, is a true passion of mine. Thus the reason I have been doing it for so long. I'm still learning and maybe have taken breaks now and then but I always come back to it.
I agree there is something special about having a place to call your own...and that includes a special place on the internet!
Diana is carving out her own little space on her blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest among other spots and she (and we) would love for you to join her there!
