Today we’re meeting the gorgeous Bron from Maxabella loves, and I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve met anyone in this fabulous blogging community who is more generous. When I first started playing around with words, I was cheeky enough to email Bron and ask her for some advice. Looking back now, if I’d really thought about it, why would I expect one of the busiest writers around to help me? Not only does Bron maintain her own glorious blog, she’s also the editor over at Village voices on Kidspot and was one of the judges of Voices of 2013.
But practically as soon as I’d asked the question, I received a reply. Not just a standard form letter, but actual interaction and some realistic advice, and her encouragment along the way has been a huge boost. Since then I’ve seen first hand why Bron is so well-respected, and such a big part of this community. We’re lucky enough to get a little peek into her world today, full of beautiful images and creative ideas…..enjoy!
Please tell us what your blog is about and why you started it.
I’ve been blogging since April 2010 about living creatively, finding life balance and what happens
when your kids eat your brain.
What does “zen” mean to you?
Zen is simplicity, zen is harmony, zen is authenticity, zen is my hammock.
Can you share the post you’ve written that has had people really talking?
Oh man, this one.
This one also stirred the pot.
And this one.
You could say I’m somewhat controversial?!
Who is the most zen person you know, and how can we be more like them?
My brother who is so laid-back he finds it hard to walk, but I think he just came out that way. For
me, it’s all about doing the things that matter the most first and getting around to the rest if you
Are you working towards anything that will make a positive change in your life?
I absolutely am, I think I always am. Right now I’ve got a new project in the works that is making me
feel excited (when I find time to work on it). We are also working hard towards improving the kids’
sleep habits and the results we’re seeing there are probably even more exciting.
I have so many wonderful blog favourites that make me smile, what are the 3 that brighten your
day, plus one that we may not have heard of before?
Because I work in the industry, I reckon I must look at over 100 blogs and more a week, so choosing
3 is extra super-duper hard. But here are 3 that I think are lovely and make me smile.
I’m also adding my beloved sister’s blog for a well-deserved plug: Allison Tait.
The Random Roundup…… just for a bit of fun.
Which do you prefer?
Beach or Country.
Country near the beach! (Hello Berry NSW, I love you).
Pinterest or Instagram.
Pinterest definitely. Instagram is waaaaay too personal for me.
Cheese or Chocolate.
Flats or Heels.
Flats. Heels scare me.
Black & White or Colour Photography.
Colour, but I don’t really mind.
Cool or Warm Weather.
Cool. I’m a redhead!
Fruit or Veggies.
Early Nights or Night Owl.
Tv or Radio.
Probably TV, but I listen to the radio more.
Comedy or Drama.
I’d be surprised if you haven’t discovered Maxabella loves yet, but if that’s the case, get over there right now! Bron also shares the bloggy love with a regular series, World Blog Tour and the Weekly Rewind. Pretty, calming and inspiring, what more could you ask for in a daily read? Oh, and she doesn’t mind a few chooks around the place.
