Brittany Ashmore from The Ashmores Blog is one of my favorite mom bloggers. Since the first time we met via social media almost a year ago, she has been nothing less than one of the most supportive women I have interacted with in the virtual world. She had always been willing to give me advice, support me in my blogging efforts, and is always quick to respond when I have a question or need a favor. She willingly agreed to do this interview with me as well as joined me as a member of my first weekly chat circle I created over the summer called Behind the Bump: A Pregnancy and Motherhood Chat Circle.
I’ve learned so much about blogging, social media, and more from her over the past year. I have also loved seeing her family grow over the past year and have learned so more about her personal side after interviewing her for my Behind the Blog series. She is fascinating and funny and one of the most endearing aspects about her is her love for God. She is real and doesn’t hide who she is as a person. She will be the first to admit if she’s having a challenging day or needs prayers. She shows her faith through and through in her posts, her blogs, her stories, and her life. Her faith is inspiring and I love that we have that passion in common. One of my favorite things she says is “God is good ya’ll” in her Texan accent.
I consider Brittany the “queen” of chat circles and currently hosts two weekly chat circles on Instagram; “Tuesday Coffee Chat: A Weekly Interactive Q&A Loop” and #joyfulmamas chat.” She also started @joyfulmamas, an extension of her blog, and a desire to uplift and share other joyful mamas on social media!” Make sure you are following along https://www.instagram.com/theashmoresblog/ and https://www.instagram.com/joyfulmamas/ If you prefer Facebook you can follow her here https://www.facebook.com/TheAshmores/ or Twitter https://twitter.com/theashmoresblog or Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/Theashmoresblog/
Not only is she a mom of two children with another one on the way, due May 12th, she is also a devoted wife, teacher, and blogger! She has over 5,000 blog readers per month and over 25k followers on Instagram. She blogs about her life, her faith, her family, her children, and now her pregnancy! So whatever stage of life you are in as a mother, you will have something you love about following along! Check out her blog here http://theashmoresblog.com and read her latest blog about her recent family vacation to Florida! She even recently spoke at Blog Elevated, a blogging conference, with a few other blogging mamas on how to grow your Instagram!
