Where do you find vlogging inspiration?

I get my inspiration from my business and love of all things signing as well as the viewers. I've started a Q&A feature on my channel that allows viewers to ask me questions and I answer them via video. It's great because I find many of the same questions keep coming up so this is a great way to be able to answer them. I also love doing videos with my children, they help me think of fun ideas.

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

Just jump right in. If you have an idea just run with it. You can simply sit at your computer and talk to the camera on that, you don't necessarily need fancy video editing programs. Your videos and channel may evolve as time goes on and that's great. You don't have to be perfect - just have fun!

How do you balance vlogging and motherhood?

I make my videos when my babysitter or husband is here. This makes it easier to balance motherhood and vlogging. I also include my kids in some of my videos. They love being a part of creating something fun for others to watch. I will try and make it a family activity so that we are all having fun!
