Monday Meet and Greet 18: Some Day I'll Learn

         Here is this weeks edition of Monday Meet and Greet.  Each Monday there will be a post with an interview of another blogger.  So we will get to know someone new and/or old out there blogging.  You may or may not know some of these blogs.  I encourage you to visit each one of these blogs each week.  Show some comment love and leave them a little note saying hello.  I'd love it if you tell them I sent you.  Maybe you will find some more favorite blogs.  This weeks blogger is one I have followed for some time now and I have worked with her on events and she is so nice.  Please check her out!

Your Name: Chelsea Day

Someday I'll Learn

Where do you blog? Tell us a little about you: I'm a marketing consultant and new mom living in San Diego with my husband. I run the family blog Someday I'll Learn, which is all about tackling domestic life…one day at a time!

How did you decide what to name your blog?: When we settled down just out of college, I was pretty clueless about domestic issues and frequently found myself declaring, "Someday I'll learn!" Now, I'm having fun learning new things daily.

What are your favorite things?
  • Crème brûlée
  • My son's laugh
  • Red-eye coffee
  • Mod podge
  • The color yellow

What are you least favorite things?
  • Porcelain dolls
  • Freeway overpasses (I always feel like I'll just go careening off!)
  • Blood
  • Poor grammar
  • Dishes

When and why did you start blogging?: I moved to San Diego in 2009 and didn't know anyone. I spent a lot of time browsing other blogs and felt the urge to create one for our own family. It's been an incredible experience and I've actually made friends with quite a few bloggers in real life as a result.

What do you blog about?: Someday I'll Learn offers personal insights and shortcuts for cooking, cleaning, parenting, organization and more. I aim to simplify life for other busy parents with helpful tips and a healthy dose of reality.

What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it?: My family has been incredibly supportive, and most of them read the blog every day. My husband, Nate, is a contributor. Everyone loves his sense of humor!

When do you find the time to blog?: Good question. Uhhh...I don't sleep a whole lot.

What is your favorite blog post ever?: I Have PTSD is the most personal post I've written. It was difficult, but I'm proud of myself for putting it out there and being a voice of encouragement for other people to share their own stories.

What has been your biggest blogging challenge?: Staying authentic and true to my own voice while working with brands to monetize the blog. Someday I'll Learn has transformed from a little family blog into an at-home job, but it's still a space for my own personal reflections. Balancing those interests and keeping my priorities straight takes conscious effort.

What advice would you give a new blogger?: Make friends! I've found so many supportive people in the blogosphere. It can be isolating initially to sit at home and put your ideas out there without a ton of feedback. Join blogging groups and converse with other people.

What widget or feature could you not live without?: LinkWithin I love being reminded of past, related posts that I had completely forgotten about!

What are your favorite blogs to read?: 
The Mama Mary Show
Heather Drive

Where can we find you?:
