Raelyns Roulette: Q&A SUNDAY

September 25, 2016


Hi my loves! As promised...I am answering your questions from my Instagram post. Let's start with the first question

Q1) "You'r an army wife right? style="background-color: white; text-align: left;">I want to know how you deal with that.
Answer: Chris is in the reserves. He has been listed for about 6 years now. I have no way to answer this except support him and if he is gone for awhile I turn to family to help me out with Landon and blogging. 
Q2) How/why did you start blogging?

Answer : I have always been passionate about fashion. I became side-tracked with the home industry and the $$$. I became comfortable but was not happy. I was let go due-to the face the  company was not doing its best. I realized...I can't go back to retail or corporate. I want to be my own voice. I want to make a living as well so I may stay home with my future kid/s and work from home.
Q3) What is the best way to connect with other bloggers or aspiring bloggers?
Answer: I quickly noticed how competitive it was to be a blogger. I luckily found Style Collective. It is a sisterhood, yes it has a monthly fee of $10 but coming from a Mama who was let get from work and free clothes don't pay the bills...this group is worth more. 
Q3) What has been your favorite thing about being a blogger so far?
Answer: This is hard because I have a few answers. The free products are wonderful of course but I love marketing for brands I BELIEVE in. It our job as a blogger to be a business and do our job. My second answer is in regards to my above answer. I have an awesome support system because blogging is HARD-WORK and I need that love from other bloggers who are on the same level as I.
 Q4) Looking to try out new foundations... do you have a favorite?
Answer: Yes, please see below images for my expensive preference and my budget friendly favorite. 
Q5) Tell us three interesting things about yourself.
1. My marriage is SERIOUSLY like another episode of 'I Love Lucy'
2. People are always shocked at the fact that I am left handed, so there's that. 
3.) I can dance like nobody's business. 
Q6) When do you make time to blog?
Answer: I have been blogging for nearly 7 months. I JUST barely figured out a system and communicated with my Husband this is the time/amount of time I need  to focus on my content. I have set a schedule of Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday. I usually have to schedule it because just sitting down and writing it when I would like to have it scheduled....was not working in the past.
Q7) How do you plan out your blogs and ig posts? 
Answer: I am going to have to answer this the same as question 6. 

 Whewwwww I am done! I hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you want this to be a usual Sunday post for me. You call the shots!
