Blog Spotlight | BD Buzz
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]
Please tell me about yourself.
I am a wife, mom and freelance writer who enjoys writing about extraordinary people, places, experiences and things. My, not so secret, passion is television and I have begun a monthly TV Review column in one of my local newspapers. My blog is an extension of that column.
Please tell me about your blog.
BD Buzz is intended to focus primarily on television, music and entertainment in general, but will deviate at times to cover topics that simply make an impression. If it is a story that I might tell my friends, I’ll blog about it. Anything that makes an impression is blogworthy.
How long have you been blogging?
I started my blog about 4 months ago, but just started kicking it into gear this February.
How did you get started?
It seemed a natural extension of the writing I’ve been doing for local publications. Then a friend started blogging and got me into it. It helped to have someone to lead the way and hold my hand.
Who does your blog appeal to?
My blog appeals to really anyone. It encompasses a lot of trends from Hot Yoga to the latest guests on Oprah. I like to inject a lot of observational humor as well and everyone can use a good laugh.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
I would love nothing more than to gain a big following and share the latest entertainment news, gossip, critiques etc. with bloggers all over. If you watch The Soup on E! Television with Joel McHale I would like to mirror that in the Blogworld.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
Probably designing and setting up my blog. I am not all that techno savvy so each little change or step tends to consume far more time than it should.
What do you love about blogging?
I love that I am connecting with people across the country. I have always been a little stuck in a bubble, never straying far from the Boston area so blogging has opened up a lot of new worlds to me.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
Not really. If I had to name something I would probably say that it is more time consuming than I had imagined. It is hard to tear myself away once I get into reading the many blogs out there. I had no idea how many blogs existed. Oh! The other thing would be word verification. You would think I would expect it since I’ve done it so many times, but it annoys me all the same.
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
I like Surviving My Tween Girls, The Single Mother Chronicles and Redhead Ranting. They either share really good information or are really funny or a little of both.
How can people find you?
