Thank you for stopping by!
A Tree Grows in the Bayou was created in June 2013 as a way to document my transition from a single English teacher from NY to a married Phd student in Louisiana. This is a DIY and home design blog that features all things creative, including the struggle to transform a rented apartment (with wall-to-wall wood paneling) into a home. I post 1-2 times a week. Typical topics include DIY projects and tutorials, thrifting adventures and budget-friendly decorating/recipes.
If these topics resonate with you, too, then I’d love to discuss the possibility of collaborating with you to help showcase your work and introduce my readers to brands and bloggers I believe in.
You can always contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for anything blog or Social Media related.
Guest Post: If you think your writing/topic is in keeping with the aesthetic and readership of A Tree Grows in the Bayou, I would love to hear about it and discuss the possibility of working together. Send me an email with the subject heading “Guest Post” if you are interested.
Featured Blog/Bloggers: I knew that when I started this blog it would be, partly, about fostering a digital community. At the end of each month, I will dedicate a post to the blog or blogger that I think deserves some additional attention.
Link Parties: What are link parties you ask? Well, they are great opportunities for you to build your blog community and gain traffic. Link parties offer a way for you to share your work on other websites, while also gaining new insights and inspiration as you go. Typically, when you visit a site on the day of their weekly link party, you’ll see a button inviting you to “link up.” Share your post url, a title, and great picture. For more detailed info on how to link up, Funky Junk Interiors has a great post here.
