Blog Spotlight | Mommy of 3 Kiddos
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 Tonia from Mommy of 3 Kiddos. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…
I am a stay home mommy of 3 wonderful children. Zack is 9 1/2, Cayden is 4 and MaKayla will be two in April – just two days before my 29th Birthday. I am the Cub Master of the Cub Scouts in my little town here in ND, I am an Avon Representative and I love being involved with anything my kids do! I love hanging out with Family and Friends and find any excuse for “Adult” Time :0)
Please tell me about your blog.
Well, I try and list the latest deals in many of the main stores such as Walmart, Target and CVS. Occassionally I throw in from Old Navy, The Childrens Place and a few others. I also do my local grocery stores and I really wish we had Safeway and Publix and things like that, but we were not blessed with great grocery stores. I also find the latest deals online, freebies, free photo books, samples and more. I have held a few giveaways and hope to do many more on down the road and hoping more frequently as I get “discovered” – Haha
How long have you been blogging?
LOL! To be honest, I was not sure and had to look. I started the concept of it in March of ’09 with 1 post but did not really get into it until that June, so not quite a year yet, but loving it and plan on doing it for years to come.
How did you get started?
Well, I kept telling my friends about all of these great deals I was finding and they wanted to lean how to do it and as I tried to answer and help everyone idividually, I found that it would be much easier to have it all in one standard spot and then that way everyone could enjoy my advice and I hope they like it.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
Just about anything. Deals, coupons, freebies, giveaways, Reader brags and more. I will find deal on clothing, shoes, toys and many other things and share. Even if it does not interest me, I want to share, because somebody out there just might benefit from it!
What was your favourite giveaway?
I have not done too many yet, but I love all giveaways, I just love to hear how excited people get when they find out hey win and then a lot of times, I hear from those what they think about the product and again how excited they were to win :0)
Who does your blog appeal to?
Anyone. If you are interested in learning how save money, get free things and more, anybody could enjoy my blog.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
Hopefully being more “Famous” – LOL!! No, I just hope that it can be a go to place for a lot of people to be able to see how they can really get great things for a VERY low price even when they have very little to begin with. And, I hope that I can find more things that will come my way to review and be able to give away to all of my wonderful readers!
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
Finding the time tojust find all of the great deals and write about them. With my two youngest home all day and needing my attention, it can be challengig to find the time to get you deals. I try to blog every day and sometimes life gets in the way and prevents it, but I still love it and I know once my children do get older, I will have more time – maybe too much – Haha
What do you love about blogging?
Just knowing that I am helping others save money and being able to get thngs they never thought they could at such cheap prices. And also meeting new people.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
I am not a big fan of the bloggers that copy other bloggers and then take the credit. Blogging is a lot of hard work and is very time consuming and if you got a deal from another blogger, all that is asked is to be considerate and give them the credit.
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?
Just be sure to leave a seperate comment for each entry. I normally offer up to four chances to win, so just be sure to leave four different comments. I do not have any giveaways right now, but plan to have one going in about day or two.
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
