In this week’s Showcase Sunday, I would love to introduce you to Katie Logue and her blog, Perfectlyimperfect32wordpress. The first thing I noticed about her blog is her witty post titles such as Gone with the Rain and Into the Abyss. If her blog titles don’t draw you in close enough for a deeper look, than the fact that she is just an ordinary mom, like the rest of us should. Her posts are real, informative and just honest. All of those characteristics I respect deeply in a fellow bloggist. Before you run to go check her out, and believe me, you are missing out if you don’t, learn a little more about here in the interview below.
What made you get into blogging?
I never actually intended on blogging. In March of 2015, I submitted a piece for publication to Scarymommy.com. Much to my surprise and delight, they picked it up. Here is the link to the piece.Part of their publication process called for a link to my blog (that was non-existent), so I jumped online and created my blog,perfectlyimperfect32wordpress, on WordPress. The rest is history!
Have you ever been published anywhere else?
Have you ever had any formal training or education in your blog subject?
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and a minor in Art History. My education has greatly helped me develop my skills as a writer and blogger.
Which is your favorite piece that you have written so far?
Wow, this is a hard question. I love each of my pieces for different reasons. If I had to pick one I would say, When Gastric Bypass Surgery Goes Horribly Wrong (http://herviewfromhome.com/when-gastric-bypass-surgery-goes-horribly-wrong/) is my favorite. I chose this piece as my favorite because of the information it contains and the potential it has to hopefully spare someone from the horrific experience I had.
What is your favorite genre to write?
My favorite genre to write is non-fiction. Poetry is a very close second.
What was your greatest failure and how did you learn from it?
Honestly, I can’t identify my greatest failure. Of course, I’ve experienced failures in my life, but I am a firm believer that every life experience, good or bad, teaches us valuable lessons.
Who has influenced you the most with your blog?
My son, Jack, is my greatest source of inspiration for my blog. My life and life experiences are also great sources of inspiration to me.
How much time do you spend blogging in any given week?
On average I spend between 3 and 5 hours blogging weekly
Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
Blogging started as a hobby but is slowly developing into my profession
What is your passion?
Without a doubt, writing is and always has been my life’s passion.
What is your ultimate goal in life?
My ultimate goal in life is to write my memoir. I have started drafting my memoir. I do believe I am ways away from completing it though. At only 33 years old, I have much more life to live before telling my story.
Have you ever started a piece for it to be finished by another author?
I have never created a piece of writing that has been finished by another writer
What legacy would you like to leave behind?
I would like to leave a collection of my writings as my legacy, so that my work may live on infinitely
Is there anything you want the readers to know about your blog we haven’t covered?
I would like readers to know that my blog is the truest, most honest, and raw expression of myself. I give my whole self; mind, body, and soul to the pieces I create for my blog.
