Blog Spotlight | Women Preneurs Galore
I am running a feature spotlighting other Canadian Review & Giveaway Blogs. If you have one and would like to be featured, please email me at [email protected]
Today I would like to welcome Nathalie from Women Preneurs Galore. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
My name is Nathalie and I’m 44. I’ve been married for the past 21 years and I’m the mother of 3 beautiful grown-ups. My daughter is still living with us. I started to recycle about 15 years ago, and I’ve made a business about 8 years ago. I use to take old clothing and fabric to make new and funky clothes and sold my collection to specialty boutiques in Montreal, Quebec. But that lasted till my first back surgery. Then I opted for something a little less stressing for my back and less demanding on the hours. So that is when I created Recupefashion on the net. I opend my shops on Etsy 2 years ago. And just very recently , like 1 month ago, I launched Recupefashion on the Web. Surprisingly I’m already selling. Recupefashion is a name you can trust. I make and sell trendy, handmade, eco products. I spend my days promoting and creating. Marketing, taking pictures, blogging and whatever it takes to get my business out there.
I also enjoy crafting in my little free time, walking, enjoy being with my family, my pets, music, movies, dreaming of new things to make with unwanted materials.
Please tell me about your blog.

How long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging for the past 7 years. It all started with my 1st depression. Then ,my friend suggested that I blog and let it all out. I follow her advice but I did not let it all out, But I did blog about everyday life, my creativity and my creations, but I didn’t catch on about blogging until a little later that year. And when I really caught on, and then with my shops , that’s when I got the real flame of the blog and the promoting , I really love that part.
How did you get started?
Like I said , with my first depression.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
Women’s product. Such as : soaps, jewelry, bath and body products. Paintings, whatever a women can design , draw, build, I will feature.
I also review company’s products eco products mainly.
If I used certain products and I liked them then I will do a review on them for my readers,
But I think I spoiled my readers with giveaways, I think when I don’t put a giveaways they ignore me, and I find that a shame because I do great reviews.
What was your favourite giveaway?
Who does your blog appeal to?
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
What do you love about blogging?
Getting to know more people.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
Not that I’m thinking of, I pretty much go with the flow
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?
Nothing complicated, all they have to do is go to http://women-prenuergalore.blogspot.com
And read the feature for the giveaway you want to enter, and then you simply read and follow the many ways to gain entries for the giveaway, such as : follow my blog, twitter about the giveaway, post my button on your blog etc
As for newbie review bloggers : I would say you have to keep knocking on them doors a lot sometimes before you get a yes , but don’t get discouraged, because I go and ask to just about any company, especially those young comapnies that are just starting out, or you can also ask those big companies like Johnsons and Johnsons, because I did and got some great samples and they also gave to my readers some great samples, it was really worth it, But you really have to be persistent, it doesn’t always work out. But there are special sites for that but they are mostly for USA sadly I’m in Canada so I did not keep track of those sites.
But if you google a lot you will find them and get a lot of samples to review,
But you have to google a lot.
I’m always gogling here and there so that’s how I find my reviews.
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
How can people find you?
