Niche Mommy (NM): What influenced you to start blogging and why?
Krystal Butherus (KB): I have been blogging on and off for over ten years. I only recently became serious about it. There’s a big blog world out there and I want to be a part of it.
NM: What was your greatest achievement in 2012?
KB: Becoming a mom.
NM: What’s on your 2013 bucket list?
KB: Get published, find a way to monetize my websites, and go to the Niche Parent Conference!
NM: What is something you learned in the last week?
KB: I learned that no matter how hard you try – sometimes it doesn’t work out.
NM: What would you name the autobiography of your life?
KB: Someone asked me this when I was 17 on a college interview. At the time, I said “Lucky.” That’s definitely the title of a famous novel so I can’t use that answer anymore. Besides, I don’t think it applies. I have changed so much since then. I think “Kitschy,” like my blog, would work. I am a hodgepodge of everything.
NM: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
