Indiana Blogs: What’s Up Fagans?
What about that name? Why What’s Up Fagans?
What are three of your most favorite posts?
I blog because I love it! I really do. It’s my hobby, my passion, my outlet. It let’s me feel connected to others despite being a full-time stay-at-home mom with three young kids. I also blog because I love sharing my advice, as imperfect as that advice may be. I love the blogging community and camaraderie. I’m also blogging in hopes of making a few bucks to supplement our very low family income while still being able to be with my children and do something I love.
From parenting to art, babies to books, you cover a slew of topics! Do you have a favorite? Is there one topic that, every chance you get to write a post for it, that you just can’t wait to dig in?
You’re right! My blog can be a bit all over the place! My favorite topics are usually the personal ones, ones where I share my imperfections and how I’m hoping to change myself and improve my life. Most of them have to do with parenting (and I love writing about parenting!), but some deal with my personal feelings about myself, my life, and my faith. They may not be the most “pinnable” posts, but I love writing them, and many of my readers appreciate reading them, telling me how they can relate, how it’s inspiring them to make changes for themselves. THAT is what makes blogging worth it – helping others!
You’ve got three kiddos–and two of those are twin girls! What is the most unexpected thing you’ve discovered while raising twins?
First, let me say, I love being the mom of three kids (and want to have more too)! But, yeah, the twins were completely unexpected, especially as our first (and second)! It was a steep learning curve for sure and the first year is a giant blur. One of the most unexpected things about raising twins is how fun it can be! While twins can mean double the trouble as they team up to get into things they aren’t supposed to, twins have also meant double the fun, smiles, hugs, and kisses. I love how close they are, being each others best friends, sharing everything, and so much more. I loved having a sister close in age to me growing up – we’re still best friends – so I’m so glad my daughters have a sister about as close in age as you can get!
Another thing I’ve discovered while raising twins is that children are their own unique individuals. My girls, despite being the same age, hit milestones at different times, have different interests, and react to things differently as well. They have different needs. One is better at something than the other. Having twins has made me very aware of how parenting one child can be very different from parenting another.
