Christian Bloggers To Follow: Sophie of My Cup Runs Over

 Need some inspiration? We all need a little from time to time. That’s why I’ve started a new interview series on different Christian bloggers so we can all learn and be encouraged by one another.

Today’s post is the first in my Bloggers On A Mission interview series. These interviews were taken from a series of posts done in a Facebook group that I’m an owner of.

These interviews ask Christian Bloggers questions that will help inspire, teach, and encourage us all on our blogging journeys.

The first interview in the series is with Sophie of My Cup Runs Over.

Interview With Sophie of My Cup Runs Over

What is your name and some background information about you?

My name is Sophie. I’m 34 years old and I live on Canada’s west coast. I ran a consulting company with my husband until 2014, but now I’m a full-time writer and homeschooling mom of four.

What is the name of your blog?

My Cup Runs Over (www.mycuprunsover.ca)

How long have you been blogging or working on this blog in particular?

I first started this blog in July 2017, then stopped, then picked it back up in the spring of 2018. This is my third blog, but the first one that I’ve been in love with and shared publically.

What was the original purpose of your blog when you started it?

To share my writing with potential readers of my books and help women in various aspects of their life.

Has that vision changed over time and if so how?

God started revealing to me in 2018 the need for women to find more rest in their lives, and I’ve become quite passionate about helping them find it.So many women I know pour themselves out for their families...but don't take the time to stop and let Jesus fill them back up. I'm on a mission to see that they learn to do that. Sophie of My Cup Runs Over Click To Tweet

So many women I know pour themselves out for their families and communities every day but don’t take the time to stop and let Jesus fill them back up. I’m on a mission to see that they learn to do that.

How is God using your blog to help others?

I hope that my message of rest is helping my readers realize that it’s okay for them to stop and just BE sometimes. To be restored, to be filled up, to be on the receiving end of grace and love. I hope that through my writing he is teaching them that they can’t pour out of an empty cup.

If you could go back in time to the beginning of your blogging journey, what would you change or do differently, knowing all that you know now?

I’ve actually been pretty happy with the progression of my blogging journey. I’ve sought out reams of information at every step of the way and have combed through it, taking what I need, applying it, and leaving the rest.

I have grown and evolved as a writer and a blogger, and with each new season, I am finding the people and information I need to continue growing. It really is a JOURNEY, and I’m just enjoying the ride.

What courses or blogs have been the most helpful in your blogging journey?

I started out with Serious Bloggers Only from Jon Morrow, which I found quite helpful, even though his writing style is somewhat condescending. It was jam-packed with information. I’ve subscribed to many newsletters and free courses that have been highly informative. I really enjoy the Brilliant Business Moms’ newsletter and Facebook group.

I recently joined Elite Blog Academy, which has also been amazing. I think that if I could have afforded it sooner, I might have liked to join EBA earlier, but at the same time, it could have been overwhelming as a brand new blogger.

What are the blogging tools or resources you can’t live without?

My mastermind group. SERIOUSLY. Can’t live without the support from an enthusiastic, like-minded group of Christian bloggers. They get me through every dark day when I forget why I’m even doing this in the first place.

Any words of advice for new bloggers just starting out?

Join a mastermind group. Make blogging friends. Do whatever you need to do to feel like you are not alone in this journey because it can be an isolating experience. Having friends to encourage you will make such a difference.

Don’t get too stuck in one way of doing things. Don’t be afraid to try new things until you find the methods that work best for you. Experiment. Fail. Learn. Adapt. Try again. Repeat. It’s all part of the process.

Thank you, Sophie, for sharing this with us and for being such an encouragement.
