Blog Of The Day: Introducing Terri Webster Schrandt of Second Wind Leisure

o-vrczy2_400x400I have the pleasure of introducing to you today one of my favourite bloggers. Terri Webster Schrandt is a leisure educator, self-published author, blogger, and retired recreation and parks practitioner living in Northern California. Her blog, Second Wind Leisure Perspectives is about living a leisure lifestyle plus so much more!
Terri’s blog inspired her to publish her own ebook on Amazon in July of 2016. Seeing the importance of featuring a compelling image to illustrate every post on her blog and not wanting to risk copyright infringement by just grabbing images off of the internet, she honed her photography skills so that she could use her own images. Thus the idea of a guidebook for other bloggers came to mind.  Check out Terri’s ebook Better Blogging with Photography: How to Maximize Your Blog Using Your Own Images on Amazon.
Terri is so passionate about photography and sharing her tips with other bloggers, that she is now sharing her own images for other bloggers to use, for free! On her blog, you will find articles brimming with photography tips as well as a list of photo challenges she enters to connect with other budding photographers.
Here are her series posts on free stock photos:

Out of the Shadows

But wait…there’s more!
Terri has a very active lifestyle that involves windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), camping, reading, writing, teaching, walking the dogs, traveling, and so much more. Follow her to her favourite leisure places & spaces and read about her reactions to them. She has a variety of stories all related to a healthy leisure lifestyle.
And guess what? I was lucky enough to be roomies with Terri at a blogging conference last year and let me tell you, she is a hoot! Just like the famous comedian she resembles. Can you guess who?

    I am honored and happy to be featured today on Elena’s lovely blog! I have followed Elena for over a year and also got to know her at BAM16 last year in Las Vegas. She writes about a wealth of information on how to blog, and offers a FREE Pinterest course for those wanting to build their social networks. Thank you for having me, Elena!
