I’m thrilled to announce that I have been nominated by the amazing Just Sparkle! for The Liebster Award! It’s a great way for bloggers to connect as each nominee has to nominate 12 other bloggers who have 1000 or less followers on instagram.
I have nominated 11 amazing blogs, once you’re nominated, you answer the questions that are in the blog post below, link back to the blogger who nominated you in the post and on instagram, and pass it along!
I cannot wait to get to know the other bloggers I have nominated and how they got their start!
I am grateful for this nomination! Here is how Short Stop Designs came to be.
How did you come up with your blog name?
When I was first married, I created a personal blog for our teeny tiny family. Because my husband was/is a huge baseball fan, and I’m not a big fan of writing, I wanted people to come and literally have a “short stop.” It seemed appropriate to name my family blog “Megan’s Short Stop.” The name stuck, and I wanted to created another blog to share my designs, so this blog was born! 🙂
Why did you start your blog?
I wanted to practice my passion for graphic design, and needed a place to share it. I’m lucky to be able to be a stay at home mom, and after a long day it with my 2 wild and crazy boys (whom I love dearly of course) it is just the thing I need to keep me sane and has turned into a hobby I enjoy working on.
What do you love most about blogging?
My blog has motivated me to work on being a better graphic designer and has been great to have as my creative outlet. I also have a passion for photography, and blogging has given me the chance to work on developing this “skill” as well.
What’s one goal you wish to accomplish this year?
My first goal is to continue to develop my blog, along with my graphic design!
The second is to meet other talented bloggers and understand this whole blogging world better.
What is your favorite social media site?
Hands down, it’s Instagram. I love that I can be inspired by so many other talented bloggers in one place.
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is me just wanting to be comfy. I am not stylish at all, so as long as my outfit matches and I don’t look like a complete goofball, I call it a good day!
If you could choose one store to shop at for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I am in love with Old Navy! I am a fan of sales and affordable clothes, and that place (to me) has both!
What is one fear you would like to conquer?
Driving in the snow. We will be moving to Alaska later this year, and as a California native, it is something I have been dreading ever since we found out about this big move. Wish me luck!
