Saturday Featured Blog | Holly’s House

Welcome to Simply Stacie’s Saturday Featured Blog! If you would like your blog featured, please fill out this form.

Today I would like to welcome Holly from Holly’s House! I had a chance to learn more about herblog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I’m awesome. Really? What else do you need to know?

Okay, okay…I’m a 29 year old SAHM to four kids under the age of 7 who spend their days trying to break me…I thought I had mothering all figured out and then my 18 mth old was born with Down Syndrome and a severe heart defect which was corrected via open heart surgery at 4 mths old.

I love wine, I love books, I love photography, I love writing my blog, and I love when people tell me how awesomely funny my blog is…

I love my family, I love spending time with them…I am very blessed…and very tired…and I spend way too much money at Starbucks..skinny vanilla latte 1 splenda baby…

Please tell me about your blog.

I mostly blog about the humorous side of motherhood…parenting is really hard work and if I can’t laugh about the mistakes I make and how my brood drives me nuts then I won’t make it until the youngest turns 18…

I blog about trying to make my big fat ass a little ass…

I blog about my marriage and how the children are trying to ensure no more siblings are added to the clan by not allowing us any alone time to practice making said siblings…

I try not to hold back…you get the real me…most of the time I’m pretty damn funny, but sometimes not so much…like I said, parenting is hard, and once in a while I can break down…

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging in May 2010-right around Mother’s Day

How did you get started?

When I was pregnant with Brooke and we found out she had DS, I found a few blogs in relation to that and was drawn in…those written words made me feel so much better and I wanted to be able to do the same for others…

Turns out I’m not so good at that though…but apparently I am good at making fun of myself and my family…so here I am

Who does your blog appeal to?

I think anyone can read my blog…although it’s focused on my life with my family and kids, I have quite a few readers that have no kids that tell me how much they get a kick out my stories…

What direction do you see your blog going in the future?

Who doesn’t want to have a huge audience? I would love for oodles and oodles of people to read my words and laugh long with me…

I would love to be a big mommy blogger, but I’m happy where I am…as long as people keep coming back than I’m doing something right..

What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?

Hmmm, probably my husband. He’s very supportive and loves my blog, don’t get me wrong, but if does something that’s excellent blog fodder most of the time I don’t write about it…he doesn’t want to be seen as my fool…sigh…

What do you love about blogging?

It’s all mine. My blog is mine…so much of my life (read:all) is dedicated to my kids and my husband, but this is mine…

And I love the community…I love reading new blogs, I love finding new blogs, I love getting feedback for my posts…

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

“I’m following, please follow back” at least leave a comment that tells me you at least skimmed my post…

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

really, the list could go on forever

How can people find you?
