BBAW Interview Day!

Happy BBAW Interview Day!

I was luck enough to interview Trish from Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity

Her fun style and interesting post had me thrilled to get the chance to interview her and to find a new blog to follow.  I hope you enjoy her interview and that you will stop by and check her out!

Lisa: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.

Trish:  I started blogging solely about books five and a half years ago but as I started to get to really know other bloggers my content started becoming more personal. Now there is a mix of all aspects of my life on my blog–especially as I’ve started a new chapter of life as a mom. I’ve been accused of having too much energy but I’m hoping that in a small way I’m helping spread some joy across the community.

Lisa: Do you have any other hobbies outside of blogging and reading?

Trish:  It seems I’m always busy doing this or the other but some of my favorite non-bookish/blogging hobbies include quilting, crafting, cooking, and baking. Of course, if I can listen to an audiobook while doing these things it’s a double win.

Lisa: Share a little bit about your Pinterest Pin It and Do It challenge.

Trish: I fell in love with Pinterest last summer but didn’t take the time to actually do any of the things I pinned. I made this a goal in 2012 and after seeing so many others their obsession with Pinterest but lack of follow-through I started the Pin It and Do It Challenge. The challenge is easy–just complete something that you’ve pinned. The next round will start in October.

Lisa:  What literary location would you most like to visit? Why? 

Trish: Great question! Wuthering Heights is a book that moody and atmospheric. As we start creeping into fall I’d love to visit the Moors featured in Wuthering Heights. Other than that? Hogwarts.

Lisa: Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How? 

Trish: I wouldn’t say that my reading tastes have changed but they have been enhanced since I started blogging. My eyes have been opened to so many different authors and books that I would have never discovered outside of blogging and I’m so grateful for that. I also find that I’m a more adventurous reader thanks to blogging.

Lisa: You have been blogging for 6 years, congrats, what have you learned along the way?  What advice do you have to share?

Trish:  There have been a lot of ups and downs for me as a blogger over the past five and a half years. I even gave up my popular book blog almost three years ago to start over at Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity where I could blog without the (self-imposed) restrictions, guilt, and stress. Mostly what I’ve learned is that it is important to blog for yourself but mostly to be yourself. My advice for other bloggers is to not be afraid to break some of the rules. And have fun!

Thanks for the great interview, Trish!
