How would you describe yourself?
I am a mother of 3 through both birth and foster care adoption. I also work in post production.
When did you start your blog?
How did you choose your blog name?
Our last name is Bohn, so it’s a play on the saying “No bones about it”
What keeps you motivated and inspired to blog?
The ability to freely express my thoughts and gain feedback from others in similar situations
Tell us a little about your family.
My boyfriend (now husband) and I decided to become foster parents 5 years ago after graduating from college. Our foster care placement (a brother and sister set) became available for adoption so we jumped at the opportunity. We recently welcomed a biological child this passed Fall.
How do you prioritize family and your blog?
Well family comes first of course. I also work full time away from the blog, and will often write blog posts on my lunch break or on the subway while commuting to work.
Where do you see your blog and yourself in 5 years?
I see my blog continuing and hopefully gaining a more diverse audience so that we can both learn from each other.
Biggest life lesson learned blogging?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that after you hit publish, let it go. You’ve presented your issue, don’t dwell or obsess.
What is your secret to success?
My secret to success is to never consider yourself a success. Keep on working for the next thing.
What do you wish someone would have told you when you first started blogging?
Use fake names.
All bloggers encounter writer’s block. How do you get past this?
I usually read news articles and think about my opinion on them. Sometimes I then write about my opinion, or the article leads me to a funny memory or story to blog about.
What was your sweetest success story?
Definitely my kids adoption. We were worried if would never go through.
How do you relax?
I’m a big reader and a total nerd. If I just need a minute to relax I’ll do so with a news article. If I need more relaxation time I’ll read a book.
Do you belong to any other social media networks to promote your blog?
I promote it on twitter and facebook mostly.
Have you attended any social media conferences? If so, which ones?
No conferences, various blogger meetups.
What blog(s) do you just have to read daily?
I have a huge list of blogs I read daily! My favorite is probably fosterhood.tumblr.com
What has been your most popular posts?
When my kids birth mother left: http://www.nobohnsaboutit.com/2010/06/shes-leaving/
Share your favorite quote or inspirational thought:
I’m not big on inspirational quotes. If I had to pick one I would pick “seize the day.” It seems to reflect my feelings on life without being overly cheesy.
Do you send out a monthly newsletter? How can we get on your mailing list if we are interested in more information?
I don’t have a monthly newsletter but you can subscribe to my posts from the main page on my site.
