What sparked your interest in writing?
I have always had a love for languages and a way with words. When blogging emerged as a platform for sharing your work, it was a very natural step for me. In the last 8 years, I have launched MomAboard
, written a book The Giant Book of 'How-To' Lists for the New Dad
, and penned hundreds of articles for online and print publications.
What is your first fashion / beauty memory?
Being a child of the 80's, it was leg warmers and crimped hair!
What is your personal style statement?
I like to pair classics with edge, so you never know what to expect from me. I believe the body is a canvas and fashion is art; I'll try anything once.
What made you take up blogging?
There was a real need for information on traveling with kids when I had my first child in 2008. I have always had serious wanderlust and it was not about to disappear once I had children. As I schlepped my son from Australia to New Zealand, India, China, Japan, Singapore and to the US, I started cataloging my experiences and advice. From there, MomAboard
has grown into one of the premier family travel sites on the internet.
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
There's an infinite amount of content out there. Find your voice and find your niche and don't waste a minute on anything that isn't adding value. And finally, make these three letters your best friend: S-E-O.
