WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
I live in the most beautiful state – Colorado! I moved to the south for college and was so ready to move back home (humidity and bugs are not my thing!). I live with my husband in a townhouse that we bought at the base of pikes peak in a city called Colorado Springs. We live on the west side and have hiking trails across the street from us – this is my kind of living! If you are ever heading this way on vacation, I would love to give you some advice on where to go and/or meet up with you if you would like!!
ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
Yes! I am a Christian and it is a huge part of who I am! I believe that God sent His son to die for me, even though I am so unworthy, because He loves me. My desire is to encourage, love, and share Him with the world because in Him there is hope! I value life at every stage and I know the Lord has dreams and plans for YOU. Email me (email@example.com) if you ever want to chat more!
WHAT CAMERA DO YOU USE?
For my 26th birthday I got a Canon Reble EOS T3. I am learning new things every day about it and stretching my photography knowledge! It is fun and exciting learning how to shoot with manual settings. I also use a 50 mm lens & a 24mm lens almost exclusively. Both of them are wonderful and I suggest using them over the kit lens.
I previously used my husband’s camera. He bought a camera (this one!!) his senior year of high school (2007) – it is a Sony Cybershot DSC- H7. When we got married it became mine (marriage tends to do that!). I first started playing around with photography on this camera but mostly only shoot with auto. If you don’t have the ability to buy a new camera, use what you’ve got and save up!
WHAT COMPUTER DO YOU USE?
I have two computers that I use for blogging and other computer related endeavors!
LAPTOP: I use a google chromebook of my on-the-go needs.
DESKTOP: I have a Lenovo all-in-one desktop at home. I love that it is able to do all I need and more. You can read more here.
HOW DO YOU MAKE MONEY ON YOUR SITE?
I make money three ways; sponsored content, blog consultations, and affiliates. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to work with some amazing brands and if I’m ever being paid for a blog post, it will be disclosed within the post that it’s “sponsored” (any gifted items will be marked with ℅). I’m also a part of several affiliate advertising programs. This means that if you click and/or make a purchase through certain links on my site or any related social media platforms (including Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest), I may make a commission from that click and/or purchase. I’m extremely selective when working with sponsors and I will only feature products and brands that I love. I turn down opportunities (and lots of money) all the time because it’s very important to me to include and only show products and companies that fit my life and style.
I LOVE YOUR BLOG, DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR MINE?
I would love to chat with you more about this! I am now offering consultations and would be honored to get to know you and your blog a bit more. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk more about what you are thinking about!
DO YOU DO GIVEAWAYS?
Yes! I love to feature brands and small businesses on Oak + Oats! Please check out my advertising page for all the details or contact my collaboration manager Jennifer Wiggins at email@example.com and include “Oak + Oats” in the subject line.
