When I first started blogging, it was just to share coupon deals that I had found with my friends. I would see other bloggers going on amazing trips, reviewing awesome products and more. I made it a point not to pay too much attention to what others were doing on their sites in order to focus on my own. But there was one thing I noticed. A few of the bloggers’s I admired, were going on amazing trips to promote upcoming Disney Films. However, I thought that I could only dream of those types of opportunities.
Once my daughter was born, I decided to take a leap of faith and expand into other areas. I took my mother’s advice and took time on each post I wrote. In 2013, I was blessed to attend my very first press day for the movie Frozen. It was surreal; I could not believe I was in a room interviewing the filmmakers. The main piece I wrote after the event “15 Fun Facts about Disney Frozen”, took me over 8 hours to write, but I did it! In time, I learned that the more I believed in myself, the easier posts were to write. 2014 was filled with amazing opportunities, including attending the press junkets for Muppets Most Wanted, Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6 and more.
Through prayer, faith and courage my dream became a goal and by the grace of God my goals are now plans. A week before Christmas, I received an email that brought on a river of happy tears.
