We've concurred death and all! Lily was not even supposed to survive out of my stomach. After heart surgery at 6 days old and stomach surgery she is now a healthy and happy one year old :) She is a fighter as all girls are with Turners Syndrome.

Vanessa is a winner of Top 25 Mom Vlogs - 2013

Where do you find vlogging inspiration?

Vlogging is inspirational because not everyone is the same. We are all different but we can influence the people who are similar to us. Being a teen mom I have had several teens ask me for advice on how to prevent pregnancy, prevent themselves from wanting to become pregnant, and simply how to approach the situation correctly. Being able to influence young girls into living there lives first before they have children is enough inspiration for me!

What tips would you give a mom who wants to start video blogging?

1. Be yourself.
2. Be interactive with your viewers.
3. Know basic video editing.
4. Be creative with your videos.
5. Be informed on everything you say.

*Just have fun and enjoy the experience :)

How do you balance vlogging and motherhood?

I simply do it when I find the time. When lily is asleep or taking a nap is the only times I really have to myself so I balance out YouTube and school to get it all done :)
