I can not even believe this is already spotlight number 4 and that today is the last day of April. Where in the actual heck did the last 4 months of 2017 go, amiright?!? It’s like I blinked and tomorrow is May! Anywho – let’s go ahead and get right into today’s Bloggy Friend Spotlight – Jessica Spivey!!!
I met Jessica in the Tampa Bay Bloggers, and if you haven’t guessed by now I’m featuring as many of my local bloggy friends first before I start going nationwide and ultimately international. I’m biased, and that’s allowed because my city, my love, my blog! So there. LOL! Still, I love sharing every blogger’s spotlight, and outside of Tampa is coming soon – so if you want in on this, fill out the form here! Okay, back to Jessica.
Check out her deets:
Name: Jessica Spivey
Your blog: Tampa Mom Runs
Can you tell me about your blog? I write about anything related to Tampa, being a mom and running – with a sprinkle of Disney! (side note from Famous Ashley – my favorite post Jessica does is a weekly feature called #DisneyTipTuesday. Each Tuesday Jessica reveals a cool insider tip, trick or travel hack for all the Disney things. I love it, love her, and if you check out her blog – I’ll bet you love her too!)
Do you post on WordPress, Blogger or Something else? WordPress
What’s your niche? Lifestyle
Is your blog making you money? Some random play money
How did you get started? I started to blog after we found out we were pregnant as a way to share our journey with family, most of which lives far away. After a miscarriage and a healthy pregnancy, it was time to loose the baby weight and Tampa Mom Runs was born. I started running and sharing my journey with others.
What are your must have tools to run your blog? iPad, iPhone and new Sony camera
What advice would you give to someone just starting their blog? Pick a unique name that really explains who you are! A cute saying can be your tag line, but make sure that your name is something clear and concise!
If you had it to do over, is there anything you would have done differently?
I would have started with GoDaddy hosting and not on WordPress.com
Who do you consider your bloggy mentors?
Caitlyn of LiveSweatSleep
When you have a blogging question, where is the first place you go for the answer?
I google it! If I can’t find the answer there – I throw the question out to our local Tampa Bay Bloggers for help!
What are your plans for the future of your blog? Keep it forever. As my blog as evolved, I have become a certified Social Marketing professional through HootSuite and now run several social media accounts for local businesses.
How frikkin awesome is Jessica? I think she’s pretty darn awesome. In case you were just skimming (we all do it, it’s cool) – I want to repeat that Jessica does social media for local Tampa businesses. In other words, if you need some help with your social media management- I highly recommend checking Jessica out!
