FABULOUSLY FEATURED: THE HEART’S OVERFLOW

Welcome to Catholic Sistas’ newest series, featuring some of our friends in the Catholic blogging world entitled Fabulously Featured which will run on Wednesdays. I have always wanted to introduce you to some new blogs to follow and support, but seriously lacked the time to put this together before now. In a Facebook group of fellow Catholic women bloggers, I asked ladies to answer some questions for this series, and they were all too excited to participate! I give you their answers in their own words.:)

Come and join us as we meet Anna, author of The Heart’s Overflow. She is a mama, a wife, a gardener, a knitter (well, ok, sometimes a knitter), and a Catholic. She shares her family, her faith, and her heart with us.

NAME:

Anna Coyne

BLOG:

The Hearts Overflow

ESTABLISHED:

2013

THEME:

Reflections on motherhood- the good and the bad. This is where I share my heart.

INSPIRATION/MOTIVATION:

When I first became a mom I felt frustrated by how little I was able to get done each day. Sure, I was keeping a baby alive, no small task. But apart from that I had little to show for the day. I started blogging to have something TO DO, something to contribute to the world around me.

FAVORITE ELEMENT:

I love that my blog is a living, working scrapbook of my family’s life. Out of town friends and relatives can see what we’re up to and feel connected.  In years to come I can look back with nostalgia at the beginnings of our family.  I also love sharing my heart, if others can relate, that sense of community is awesome.

FAVORITE POST:

Getting to share my son’s birth story was really important to me. It was such a life altering event I felt that unless someone had read it, they wouldn’t really know who I was.

I also shared my conversion story on my blog.  That was another import life event to share. I wanted my friends and family to know why I became Catholic. I also wanted other Catholics to see the Church through the eyes of a convert.

BALANCE:

Blogging is my “me time”. I do it when my baby is alseep, or when my husband is home and can keep the babe out of my hair. I feel very refreshed and like I have accomplished something when I publish a post, so I try to do it twice a week. But if I can’t get that done, I don’t get down on myself.  I blog first for myself, so there is no pressure.

AUDIENCE:

I’m primarily writing to other mom’s, but I love it if people who are not moms read.  I love giving new perspective to people.

CATCH PHRASE/TAGLINE:

The tag line on my blog is “A Collection of Thoughts on Marriage, Motherhood, Faith, and Life”. That basically covers all the bases of what I might write about!

 

ADVICE:

If you’re thinking about starting a blog, I say go for it! You’ve got nothing to lose!
