Welcome to another amazing swap with my dear friend and fellow host Tamara as we share all about blogging!
Hooray for #AskAwayFriday, the most amazing link up ever!
#AskAwayFriday was created by the amazing Penny from Real Housewife of Caroline County and Amber from Bold Fit Mom, as a way to connect with other bloggers with a great Q & A session of 10 questions and 10 answers, between two bloggers! This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know others while allowing others to get to know you and of course there is also the added bonus of making great friends along the way which is one of the best parts of this online world!

It is time to share all about blogging with the amazing Tamara! Tamara is an amazing friend, writer, photographer, mom, and wife and if you have not taken a moment to meet her, head over now you won’t be disappointed!
1. What is the story behind your blog name, tagline, logo, etc.? Why did you pick the colors you picked for your theme?
The blog name is one that I had spent much time thinking about, before I even started…my kids all call me momma and I have been told numerous times that I tend to ramble, so…This Momma’s Ramblings.
My tagline was really just a throw together of my plan of sharing a new journey as a SAHM and homeschooling adventure.
My logos were made using PowerPoint.
My colors really just scream, me…I love bright and vibrant colors.
2. What is your #1 goal for your blog for 2015?
I really want to grow, and sadly to do that, I need to get the chaos of my day to day more organized.
3. Have you ever been to any blogging conferences and do you have any plans to do so?
No and I would love to, but there aren’t that many near me and being a single income family our finances just don’t really allow it.
4. How did you first get involved in blogging?
I started looking into it, when I left my job of almost 19 years and hoped that it might allow me to make a few dollars to add to our family cash flow.
5. What were the biggest mistakes (or blogging no-nos) you committed in the early years of your blogging career?
I honestly can’t say, short of I had a few duh moments like…I was always extremely hesitant to fully put myself out there, thanks to major shyness. Then there was my hesitation to get to know others…again major shyness issues and my own complexes.
6. How do you come up with the material/ideas for your blog posts?
Oh day to day nonsense…I could likely share more, but I have to be careful not to overly embarrass the tween/teen children, and I try not to air too much negativity.
7. Have you ever considered leaving the blogging world and why? What stopped you?
No way, I love blogging and I absolutely love the amazing friends the I have been blessed to meet. As a SAHM, I don’t have much interaction with others, except the kids.
8. Do you edit your blog photos? What editing program(s) do you use?
Not really, except for the occasional crop here or there and for that I will either use my paint program or Microsoft Picture Manager.
9. What do you love most about blogging?
The friends that I have made, definitely! Thanks to my link party and #AskAwayFriday, I really feel like I have made true and life long friends.
10. What’s one thing you’ve learned about yourself since you started blogging?
I have learned that I can do anything that I put my mind to. When I started, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing and by working it through, I have made it work.
