I live in….Augusta, Georgia for now.
My niche is…Lifestyle

How has blogging changed my life: It has brought a second income into our home with lots of fun perks. I have had amazing experiences, worked with brands I love and made wonderful friends.

How I see the future of blogging/social media: I think that bloggers will continue to be a trusted voice for people and social media will continue to grow in volumes as well as reach. The gap between young and old users online will slowly diminish and hopefully there will be transparent acceptance on any and all medias.
