3. If you could give any tip about blogging, what would it be?
At the end of the day this blog is for yourself. So stay true to you. I recently had a friend who reads my blog say "I can hear your voice as I read your blog" huge compliment because it meant I am not editing myself to appear a certain way. Thanks Whitters!
