Blog Spotlight | Goldiloc’s Sweepstakes & Reviews
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 Codi from Goldiloc’s Sweepstakes & Reviews. 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 Codi. I run Goldiloc’s Sweepstakes & Reviews. Goldiloc’s comes from blonde hair + dreadlocks. I used to have my entire head done in dreadlocks, now I only have about 10 in my hair.
I’m a 27 year old stay-at-home mom to a beautiful baby boy named Judah. He was born March 6, 09. I’m a bit of a recluse, I consider myself Christian, and I believe that all you need is love.
Other than being a mommy and working on my website, I like being with family & friends, art, animals, crocheting, celebrity gossip magazines, candy, reading, writing, fashion, make-up, shopping, freebies…I could go on and on…I have too many hobbies.
I am goofy.
I’m a nice girl that hates when people sees that as a weakness.
Full-blown typical Scorpio, meaning I will stay nice until you do me wrong, then I might have to sting ya.
Sometimes I think I’m the queen of internet-addiction. If you are bored, I can probably recommend a few websites that’ll cure it.
I like playing Supermodel and dressing up for pictures.
Please tell me about your blog.
Goldiloc’s Sweepstakes & Reviews is a family-friendly blog that you can find my personal reviews for products I love and enter to win some great giveaways. It is what I do for my “me” time, late at night when I have some peace & quiet. I throughly enjoy working on my website & hope others will enjoy visiting it.
How long have you been blogging?
Since I was about thirteen, so about 14 years!! This hasn’t been constant…I’ve just built and maintained websites on and off since then.
How did you get started?
My internet friend Jen I talked to through IMs. She made cool websites & inspired me to give it a try. She also helped me quite a bit when I needed it. Since then, I have made countless websites/blogs. It’s sort of what I love to do.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
Anything that I like that is family-friendly. I don’t do bad reviews, or give away items I wouldn’t want for myself.
What was your favourite giveaway?
I love them all the same. 🙂
Who does your blog appeal to?
Anyone that’d like to try to score some fantastic free stuff, or anyone that would like to read reviews on some pretty fantastic stuff.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
I can see myself doing this website for quite a ways into the future, so hopefully it’ll just keep on growing.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
This new version of WordPress. I’ve had some killer bugs that took up soooo much time & caused much frustration.
What do you love about blogging?
I don’t leave home much, so it’s refreshing to connect with other people with common interests. I also love to write in general, plus I’m addicted to the internet. I enjoy playing around with web design and graphics.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
I don’t like it if your blog makes my crappy computer freeze up.
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?
To the readers entering my giveaways: use every extra entry you can. Trust me. Newbie Review Bloggers are kind of my peers at the moment.
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
I am a big fan of Post Secret (http://postsecret.blogspot.com/), OhNoTheyDidnt (http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/), What Would Tyler Durden Do (wwtdd.com), Belle De Jour (http://belledejour-uk.blogspot.com/), Foto Decadent (http://community.livejournal.com/foto_decadent), to name a few
