This week I'd like to introduce you to Ariean from One Krieger Chick.

Hi All!  I'm Ariean and I blog over at One Krieger Chick. Now, I'm a wife to the hardest working man I know and a stay at home Momma to three little boys. Once upon a time, I taught Family and Consumer Sciences at both the High School and College level.  We live in the country outside of Kansas City, Missouri, raise chickens, and play outside...a lot!  When I'm not playing with my boys, I love to bake, craft, and decorate our home on a budget.  You'll often find me with a cup of coffee and my nose stuck in a decorating magazine...So many ideas, so little time!

How long have you been blogging?

About a year and a half.

What Inspired you to start Blogging?

I had been thinking about it for years! My sister finally told me to do it...Right. Then. So I hopped on the computer and started a blog.  Nothing like spontaneity, huh!

What is your favourite post and why?

Hmmm...That's a hard one.  I love my DIY posts the most.  They show my true personality and Country Chic design style the best.  My Gallery Style Photo Board is one of my favorite pieces in my home because it highlights what is most important in my life. 
D.I.Y  or hire out?

Depends on the project.  At this point in my life, with three little boys, I don't tackle nearly the amount of projects I normally would.  If I can tackle it in a naptime, DIY.  If it involves major construction, we'll probably hire it out.  Ask me the same question when my boys are all in school...I'm hoping to be doing more in-depth projects.

Your going on an exciting vacation… where would you go… what would you bring?

Ooh...dreamy!  A beach with no children or computer.  I'd definitely pack a great read and be sipping on a Mojito...

What has been your biggest challenge in blogging so Far?
Balancing blog and home life has been my biggest challenge, as well as reminding myself not to compare myself to others.

What excites you the most about blogging?

Connecting with other bloggers who are just as passionate as I am.  I have met some truly amazing women and thrive off of their creativity and positive outlook on life.

Any advice for newbie bloggers? 3 tips to make blogging easier.

  1. DO NOT Compare!  You are Amazing too! (Trust me, I know this is hard!)
  2. Reach out to other bloggers...Connect, Compliment, and Be Genuine.  Bloggers are real people too just like you!
  3. Don't give up!  Set a goal each month.  If you become frustrated, take a break and do something that inspires you.  We all need to re-fuel every once in a while. :)
