Real Moms, Real Talk: Jenna Hines, SAHM and Blog Owner of Call Her Happy

callherhappyadI am so thankful to have met yet another super fab mom, wife and blogger on Blogger Link Up. She is the mom of an adorable 18-month old princess and expecting a baby boy in May. After speaking with her, I can honestly say that she lives up to her blog name. I’m a happy person and I love meeting other happy people. So she had me at Call Her Happy.  In this interview, Jenna shares all things blogging and mommyhood.

C: What is your background and how did you get started with blogging?

Jenna:  I’m formerly a high school English teacher and I also did a little bit of journalism as well. The first time we moved, we moved to a part of Michigan that was too far of a commute for me to go back to work. Since we were about to have our first baby in a few months, we decided that I should quit my job at that time [since I had planned to stay at home anyway]. So I had a few months by myself at home waiting for the first baby to come which was probably the hardest part…the waiting. So like a lot of other moms who want to just find a way to share things with their families who are out of town or live further away, I started to blog.  I started documenting my pregnancy that way. At that point, I wasn’t really computer savvy, didn’t have a smartphone and wasn’t really that interested in it, but wanted to give it a shot. So I did and it just took off from there.

I would post recipes and then people would also ask me to do tutorials for things that I had sewn or created. I started learning things about SEO and blogging in general and learning more about html. So it’s been a really cool learning experience, a whole new world of what blogging really is. I’ve been blogging since October of 2010. A lot of my learning came from googling and spending time at the library. If I liked something on someone else’s blog, I would send them an e-mail to ask how they did what is was that I liked. And I still do some of those things now.
