Stylelist Home Feature

A couple of weeks ago I received an e-mail from the editor of Stylelist Home.  She wanted to know if they could feature our home and do a short interview.

I really didn’t know much about Stylelist Home before I received the e-mail.  The site has great decorating and DIY tips.  They have previously featured bloggers like Emily A. Clark and Hi Sugarplum

After freaking out, I agreed to the interview.  A phone interview from New York City, none the less.  I’m so glad I did.  Shana was really easy to talk with and she handled my awkwardness with ease.  Come to find out, their readers love articles containing pets.  Ike steals the show again!

The article was posted yesterday.  You can read it here!

Look at the stylish fluffy dog.  The fame has totally gone to his head.  As you read this, he is wearing a silk robe and talking to agents.

This interview was a great experience for me.  There was a lot of self doubt.  A lot of “my house is not good enough”.  My blog is “not good enough.”  A lot of “this is way beyond my comfort zone.”  I can’t do a phone interview.  I’m too awkward and don’t think well on the spot.  But I did it.  And I enjoyed it.  Who cares if I don’t have the best house or the best blog?  I’m proud to call both of them mine! 

This blog has brought me so many fun opportunities.  Thanks to all of you that read and encourage my nonsense!!

Are you a Stylelist Home fan?
