Influencer of the Week – Adrienne Bolton

Sverve Influencer of the Week -

The Mommy Mess

Each Tuesday, Sverve highlights one standout community member and the qualities that make her unique.  Be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed…you never know when it might be you!

Adrienne Bolton, Author of The Mommy Mess, writes with an honest voice about motherhood and homeschooling. Her writing is always forthright, sometimes sarcastic, and never perfect. She writes about those warm fuzzy motherhood moments often, but, in her own words, I really enjoy writing about the other side of motherhood more. The side that’s real and raw. That side of motherhood that we’re scared to talk about. That’s the side that brings my words to life. If I’m scared to say it, I find it usually makes a great blog post. When I don’t feel like writing about motherhood or homeschooling, I share my deepest thoughts on life with my readers. Stuff like, “Is Bret Michaels bald under that bandanna and cowboy hat?” 

In the Beginning…

Adrienne started blogging on a whim back in 2010. She actually went online trying to learn how to be an extreme couponer.  After clicking around a little, I discovered the world of blogging I can’t live without. The couponing didn’t last long (thank God), but my love for writing was ignited. I found a freedom in writing that has become a part of me I hope to always hang on to. Last year, I decided to try and take myself a little more seriously as a blogger and see where this journey takes me. I don’t know where it’s headed, but I really hope it lasts longer than my scrapbooking phase.

When She’s not Blogging…

This mama loves to read. I read lots of books at one time so it seems I never finish any one book in a timely manner. It’s a character flaw (or adult ADD? I’m not sure which). I’m passionate about my faith and my walk with Jesus, and of course, raising my boys. They are my whole world. 

On Getting her Sverve On…And Some Advice for Newbies…

I use Sverve as a way to connect with other bloggers and brands I’d like to work with. I also use it as a way to bookmark and share tips and articles I find around the web related to my niche.  One tip for newcomers:  Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers. Find your voice and hold onto it even when comparison tells you to change.

      It’s hard for me too, but we have to remember that there’s only one us. That’s only thing other bloggers don’t have. ;) How can we use that to our advantage? By not trying to be like everyone else!

  6. Congrats Adrienne…what a wonderful honor! I LOVE to read also…just downloaded way too many books on Kindle today. Probably won’t get to read them all…but an avid reader has to be prepared, right! Lol! Have a great rest of your day! ;-)
