Blog Spotlight: A Mom’s Take

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] (it’s free!).

Today I would like to welcome Janel from A Mom’s Take. 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 mother of 2, soon to be 3. I’m a computer-a-holic and love to be online! I absolutely love to find deals and bargains and ways to stretch our budget! I also love designing and digi-scrapbooking! Photoshop is jus so fun!!

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog is my place to tell the world, my family, and my friends about what is going on in my life. It’s also a place where I will be hosting giveaways of my own and some sponsored giveaways as well. I feel that posting about my life will help the readers get to know me and feel connected to me in some way and want to come back and keep updated in my life and the lives of my children and continue to try to win some fabulous prizes!

How long have you been blogging?

I have had a personal blog for several years but never posted often as I felt like no one was listening! I started up my new blog with my first post on April 1st 2010!

How did you get started?

I used to always enter giveaways from giveawaytoday.com but it got too big that it began to feel like I never had a shot to win and I quit entering. In the middle of March 2010 I found several smaller blogs that featured giveaways and fell in love!! I started entering like crazy and over the past 3 weeks won over $800 worth of prizes!! I was so jazzed! I have always loved trying new products and discovering new companies and I LOVED winning giveaways and thought I would really, really enjoy hosting giveaways on my own blog! I started up my blog and have been so grateful for all the support I have received so far!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I hope to feature a wide variety of products that appeal to moms, kids, babies, and even dad’s too!

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

As I was entering giveaways I learned that the easiest entries are just following the blogger whether that be twitter, facebook, google friend connect or whatever. Signing up one time to connect with them gives you entries into EVERY contest! It couldn’t be any easier to get extra entries then that!

Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.

Some of my favorite blogs to read are those of my family and friends updates on their lives. I plan to incorporate updates on my family in my blog as well so you get to know me right along with the giveaways!

Do you have any upcoming Events?

Yes! I just posted my VERY FIRST giveaway and I will be hosting 3 DAYS of new giveaways with a new giveaway posted from April 12th – 14th! They will all be ending on April 30th! There will be lots of winners some come by and enter!

How can people find you?
