I created my home blog, Red Leaf Style, to share ideas to inspire people to create a home they love. Even if that means making do with that old couch while they save up. Or, painting the kitchen cabinets because it’s too expensive to buy new.

Like most bloggers, I started a blog to delve into a topic I love. But unlike most bloggers, I also created it to hone my writing skills. And in 2009 when I first created it, I was venturing into the relatively new world of web writing.

Today, I wish I had more time to devote to it. But whenever I can manage to crank a post out, take my own photos, and do some keyword research, I get so much satisfaction and joy from it.
