Wow! This is first blog post has definitely taken me as much by surprise as it probably has you.

A couple months ago, I started a YouTube channel (HotMessToMyBest) and it became more and more clear that a blog would be where I am headed.  So, after prayer and discussion with a mentor, here I am!

I am fully aware that all of the tutorials say to have your “stuff together,” to know what my focus is, and have a schedule for posts, videos, etc.  Well, as the name of my blog states, I am a reforming HOT MESS who desires to become MY BEST.  Really, that’s it in a nutshell.  I don’t have any set expectations for this blog.  I don’t have any goals or projections for the future.  All I have is my story, my life experiences, and some lessons I’ve learned from the School of Hard Knocks.  I’d love to hear about your story, life experiences, and lessons learned from whatever school you’re learning from.

I began making videos for my YouTube channel as a way to address topics I’d been asked about quite often, budgeting and saving money being the most popular.  That is where you’ll find most of my content; however, I don’t want to put myself in a box by saying that this will be a budgeting and home-economizing blog.  There is so much more to life and intentional living than just money.  I love talking about matters of the heart.  I’d love  for you to consider sharing your heart with me as I pour out mine to you.

So, CHEERS to wherever this road may lead!  I look forward to meeting and getting to know you.

Take care and we’ll talk soon.

Here’s my channel if you’d like a face behind the name:

  1. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar
    one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.


    1. Hi,

      I do tend to get a lot of Spam comments and do not have a plug in to filter these. I have a designated time each week where I go through the Spam folder to do a bulk edit. If the comment doesn’t look like anything pertaining to the article, I permanently delete the comment immediately. I do not have a lot of time to spend on this so I am somewhat brutal at deleting and moving on to more productive things.

      Hope this helps!

      Take care,
