In a multi-part series, asked a number of wedding bloggers -- those with no other professional interest in the wedding industry -- the same five questions about what keeps them going day after day.

In the first installment, talked to Kat Williams, creator of Rock 'n Roll Bride, which aims "to provide a little haven of kick ass weddingness in the overly poofy, pastel and often puke-worthy wedding world."

Here is what the Rock 'n Roll Bride had to say:

Why are you a wedding blogger?
I started blogging when I was planning my wedding for April 2008 and I loved it so carried it on after the wedding. I love photography. I love seeing people do things differently and I love weddings! I also love writing so it's really the perfect job for me.

What do you enjoy most about wedding blogging?
The people I meet. I love that blogging brings people together and creates this little community. Twitter is particularly fabulous for this. I have made some really, really good lifelong friends through blogging. I also love doing the photo shoots. It's so much fun and not like work at all. I get to sleep in late too and stay in my PJ's till 3 p.m. Working from home is pretty ace as I can hang out with my husband (who also works from home) and my kittens all day!

What do you like least about wedding blogging?
It is all consuming. My blog is my life. I pretty much work 12 hours a day, seven days a week. It's relentless but I wouldn't even say it was really a bad thing because I love it so much.

What do you consider to be your wedding expertise?
I wouldn't call myself an "expert" by any means but my blog is known most for showcasing the best and most unique photography and weddings so I'd have to say my expertise is alternative and unique photography and wedding ideas.

Where do you get your inspiration?
From my readers who send me all their beautiful weddings to feature. I also read a lot of other wedding blogs and religiously stalk Flickr for up-and-coming photographers photographing fantasticly cute, original and quirky weddings.
