Believe it or not, Jenise Subervi didn’t start her blog to start a movement or build a business. Like many other bloggers, she needed connection. After being a teacher for many years and building her own family, she needed a place where she could talk about things that were important to her… so she made her own space.
A Toddler & A Topknot started out as a place to hang out but it wasn’t long before it became so much more. Jenise kept creating amazing content and sharing it within her own circles and it grew and grew and grew.
She was later approached by various brands to write posts on their products and that’s when she realized that she could truly take her blog to new heights. It hasn’t been easy and she’s certainly fallen into some of the traps and pitfalls that all new bloggers do, but she has persevered and is changing the lives of her family.
Listen as she shares all about her story and her life and why lifestyle blogging isn’t for everyone. However you have a voice and there is something you’re meant for. It’s time to find it.
Jenise is a joy to follow and get to know. Her constant positivity and the light she shines into the world are infectious. If you’re ready for some inspiration, then take a moment and listen in! Plus if you’re looking to start a blog, you’ll get all the inside info from a top blogger.
