Blog Spotlight | A Nut in a Nutshell

I am running a feature spotlighting other 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 Elizabeth from A Nut in a Nutshell. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself. 

I’m a mom of two college-aged children, I have a particular fondness for nonsense, and I love blogging!

Please tell me about your blog. 

My blog is an extension of myself. I share my quirky point of view on me, my family, and life in general. I also do reviews and giveaways.

How long have you been blogging? 

I started blogging in November 2008.

How did you get started? 

I was reading and commenting on blogs, and my friend, mannequin, from Fractured Toy, convinced me to start my own.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog? 

I’m fairly well-rounded in that regard. I include a bit of everything, but mostly non-baby related items.

What was your favourite giveaway? 

I did a one day giveaway for Toy Tuesday that was tons of fun!

Who does your blog appeal to? 

All kinds of people, a little of this, a little of that.

What direction do you see your blog going in the future? 

More of the same. I love where I’m at.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog? 

Time. There’s so much to do and not enough time in the day.

What do you love about blogging? 

The relationships I’ve been forming because of it.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve? 

I hate word verification on embedded comment pages. It’s so frustrating to have typed a comment in, hit enter, and then get a surprise pop-up requesting word verification.

Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? 

Please read the rules for the required entry carefully!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read. 

I read unreal amounts of blogs every day. There is no way I could pick a favorite or even a few favorites.

How can people find you? 

You’ll find me blogging at A Nut in a Nutshell ( and on twitter (
