My name is Erica and I am the founder of Inspirational Nectar, established September 2016. Inspirational Nectar is a lifestyle blog focused around helping women worldwide achieve confidence and happiness so they can live the life they always imagined. I am a content creator, creative personality and dog lover. Each week, I share lifestyle posts across various content creation platforms.
Born and raised in Grand Ledge, Michigan, I am the middle child between two brothers and daughter of a happily married Mom and Dad. (Can’t forget Charlie, pictured below!) I am a junior at Central Michigan University, studying Public Relations and Event Management. I’ve always had a passion for creativity. Ever since I was little you could find me behind a computer screen, avidly writing stories, creating fun video montages or taking pictures.
As I matured, my need to exercise my creative muscle got stronger and stronger. Once I discovered blogging, YouTube and online personalities, I was hooked and knew I needed to do get myself involved. I tried my hand at blogging a couple times throughout high school, but was too intimidated and fearful of classmates finding out about it and shunning me.
In January of 2016, as a freshman in high school I decided to take the plunge, but wanted to do it right. I spent two hours per day from January until April in a building, researching, building, getting content ideas and perfecting a budget for myself. Throughout the summer of 2016, I built up a capitol until I had enough money to purchase a nice camera, a WordPress theme and some other blogger tools. I also brought my mother, Annmarie (she posts every other Wednesday) on board. She contributes fresh content twice a month and occasionally helps out with social media.
