In this series, I will share with you exclusive interviews of bloggers and entrepreneurs in our community.
Please, allow me, to introduce to you, Kim Seghers. Kim is well known in the blogging community, as This Ole Mom.
|Kim of This Ole Mom & her son|
LG: Kim, please tell us more about you!
Kim: I was born, and raised, in New Orleans, Louisiana. I am married, and have three children, ages 21, 18, and 5.
LG: When did you begin your blogging journey? What prompted you to start a blog?
Kim: I started blogging in September of 2013, after my husband's accident. This Ole Mom is my first and only blog.
I was going through a rough time, and needed an outlet. I quickly fell in love with blogging, social media, and all the wonderful people I have met. The rest is history!
LG: How would you describe This Ole Mom, to someone who is not familiar with your blog?
Kim: My blog is about Family. It's a place I created, to share recipes, crafts, and the things I love doing, with or for my family. My hope is, I inspire others to do the same.
LG: Kim, please share with us, some of your favorite things...
Kim: Well, being from South Louisiana I guess I should say my favorite food is Cajun food , but it's not! My favorite food is Korean.
My favorite color is yellow because it's so bright and cheery.
My favorite flower would be petite roses.
My favorite television show would be Revenge, and favorite song would be Perfect by Pink.
LG: What are your hobbies?
Kim: Crafting, baking, and gardening.
LG: If you could travel to anywhere in the world , where would you go and why?
Kim: If I could travel anywhere, it would be to Spain, to trace my ancestors .
LG: Share with us, 5 things on your bucket list.
- Take my son to Disney World.
- Jump out of a plane.
- Learn how to play the piano.
- Go to a Cowboy Ranch , and be part of a cattle drive.
- Go to Maine, spend a day on a Lobster Boat, and visit fish markets.
LG: Of course, Kim... We can't leave out the million dollar question! What would you do with a million dollars?
Kim: If I had a million dollars, I would help out some of my family members. I would make a donation to the Shriners; because of them, I walk.
Isn't Kim such a sweetheart? What's not to love about this wonderful lady!
It wouldn't be a complete interview, without asking Kim a few questions about blogging! Kim is a very successful blogger and I look to her as an expert on this subject. She has written several articles about blogging, visit her blog to gather some great information and tips.
I asked Kim what advice she has for someone new to blogging. This is what she had to say:
"My advice to a new blogger... when you first start out it may not be as easy as you thought, but don't give up. Reach out to bloggers, that have been blogging for a while, ask questions or advice. Join networking groups and communities. Just be yourself, and have fun!" ~Kim

Thank you Kim, for allowing me the opportunity of an interview. It was both an honor and a pleasure. May I add, I am blessed to have connected with you. My only regret is, we weren't able to conduct the interview in person.
Until next time...
