Today I would like to welcome Shasta from Faithfully Frugal and Free. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
I am a mom to four little blessings! I love that I am able to stay at home but am always looking for ways to help add income to our family.
Please tell me about your blog.
My blog is basically my way of documenting and sharing how I save money on everything from groceries to fast food! It is also a way for me to share my opinion on products we use everyday!
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for about 4 years now.
How did you get started?
I started blogging about my children. I felt like our families were really missing out on our children’s lives so I started a journal of sorts to document all they did! This blog is no longer available online. Now I share great deals and great products with readers all over the world.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
I feature family friendly products that I find interesting and useful.
What was your favourite giveaway?
My favorite giveaway to date has been my Mom-To-Be Gift Pack. I had my daughter 4 weeks before I gave the basket away and knew how special it would make any new mom feel!
Who does your blog appeal to?
I think my blog appeals to the frugal of heart in all demographics and savvy moms looking for great products to try and win!
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
In the future I would really love to be able to form a team of reviewers to reach more consumers with the best reviews possible!
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
Blogging every day has been the biggest challenge. With four children its not always easy to find the time but I have learned to blog when I can and save the draft to publish when I finish it!
What do you love about blogging?
I love the feedback! I love to hear from others who have tried the deals with success or who enjoy reading a product review.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
Bloggers who don’t help each other! It is my goal to always be helpful to other bloggers when at all possible. Wanna know how to make a button for your blog? Just ask! I will do all I can to help another blogger out! Or anyone for that matter!
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway?
Read the directions carefully!
Newbie review bloggers?
Just go for it, pitch yourself to items you will feel passionately about (those are the best reviews!).
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
Iheartpublix is my favorite blog! She is amazing! She is so helpful and she really cares about her readers! Sometimes I think it would amaze our readers to see how hard we work to keep the great deals coming!
How can people find you?
