Hello there and welcome to this week's #PoCoLo - it's been a bit of a week here and more so than usual, so this will only be a short post - please forgive me.
If you're new here this week it's great to see you *waves* and if you were here last week thank you for your continued support. It means a lot to both Morgan and I.
My photo this week is from my visit to Gardeners' World Live (as is the post I've linked) on Sunday - they're so vibrant and pretty they needed to be kept behind the rope barrier for their own safety...
Blogger Showcase: Janita from Tyler Belle
1. Who are you?
My name is Janita. I’m a wife and a momma to a baby boy and baby girl. I’m 21, and live in a small town of roughly 200 people in Manitoba, Canada. I’m a country girl, a Supernatural and Marvel fan and I cherish family dearly! I’m a PCOS and anxiety warrior learning to appreciate the small things in life.
2. How did you discover blogs/blogging?
I first came across blogs when I was 17 for a school project. I was instantly hooked and couldn’t stop reading. A few years later, after marrying my husband and having 2 kids I realized I had a lot to say and needed to share it with the world. Tyler Belle was created in that moment.
3. Why did you start blogging?
A few reasons, I wanted to share my voice and thoughts with the world! Also as a young mom, I didn’t want to be known as “only” a mom. I wanted to connect with other people and create a life for my family.
4. What do you find most challenging?
The most challenging part of blogging is definitely pushing past the hard times. Low views, writers block, negative feedback etc. As a new blogger, it can be discouraging but we have to remember to keep moving forward because our voice matters. A couple other challenges were setting up the “tech” side of a blog. I’m not a huge technology person by any means!
5. What is your favourite topic to write about?
Anything and everything Parenting. Including finances, diy crafts, pregnancy, postpartum and more. I want to help other momma’s and fellow bloggers with whatever obstacle they may be facing!
6. Are you blogging for fun, or do you have goals?
Both! One day, I would love for my blog to become my full time income and allow me to be able to stay home with my family. But, as of right now, it’s a hobby. And I don’t want to ruin that by thinking about money too much.
7. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Definitely the amazing group of supportive people I’ve come across. There are so many wonderful bloggers out there who are so helpful and encouraging. I’ve created amazing friendships with people I haven’t even met in person. I never thought I could feel so connected with someone over social media or through my blog!
8. Have you ever attended a blogging conference?
No I haven’t, however, it is definitely something I would love to do in the future!

10. Describe yourself in 3 words!
Busy! Anxious! Motivated!
As a mom of 2 under 15 months I’m busy lol. I’ve suffered from anxiety my whole life. I’m motivated to change my life and provide the best for my family!
11. Are you a tea and biscuits or coffee and cake person!
I personally don’t drink a lot of tea or coffee, but I’m definitely a cake person! If I had to choose, I would probably prefer coffee over tea!
12. What’s your idea of a perfect night out?
My idea of a perfect night out would be no children, a nice fancy dinner and going to watch a great movie with my husband. Maybe a nice walk after! As long as I’m with my husband it’s a perfect night.
13. Perfect night in?
I love our nights in when we can just lock the door, relax in our pjs on the couch. Watch our favourite Disney movie with our little boy and just cuddle. Family is so important to me.
14. What would your best friend/OH/ mom or kids say your best quality is?
My leadership or my work ethic. I’ve always known how to take charge in a respectful way and I will not stop until my work is perfect. I believe how hard I work, resembles how much I’m worth. We are all worth a lot!
