Blog Spotlight | Safe Home Happy Mom

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 Blessing from Safe Home Happy Mom. 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 Blessing Oyeleye. I consider myself the unconventional mom. I got pregnant actually to my then boyfriend in my final year of college, and I thought, oh noooo!!! But here I am, having the best moments of my life with my daughter and husband. I am a Chemical Engineer, so I always tend to search for problems and look for a suitable solution.

Please tell me about your blog.

I started Safe Home Happy Mom due to soft handedness of Safety at Home. Thousands of children die or are injured every year due to accidents at home that could be prevented. Or due to cruel products and unsafe conditions at home. After working in the industry and seeing how much attention manufacturing industries pay to safety. I thought, why not at home? Let every mom know what exactly is in the products they are using or how to react to fire at home.

Hence, Safe Home Happy Mom is mainly an online resource blog for moms and moms-to-be that exists to help them protect themselves, children and family. I am not in any way a medical doctor or a member of the Red Cross Organization but a resourceful Chemical Engineer with some knowledge of Product Safety and Public Relations. I blog about safe and non-hazardous consumer products. With recent recalls of toys, car seats, window blinds and the onslaught of toxic chemicals in baby, food and cosmetic products, my blog focuses on ways to build a non-toxic home and lifestyle.

How long have you been blogging? 

I started blogging a while ago ever since I started college, however, Safe Home Happy Mom started in November 2009.

How did you get started? 

I wasn’t happy with little or no information out there for mom’s about safety at home and for a safer lifestyle. I wanted to start something that would contribute to every mother’s household, not just another blog.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog? 

I publish exciting safe, eco-friendly and nontoxic consumer products review. I also run giveaways on my website to my many and devoted readers. However, my reviews are completely honest as I personally use these products and from a safety standpoint will not garnish any product that fails to meet the threshold. If your product fails to meet the safety threshold, I will send it back and will not publish my findings.

What was your favourite giveaway?

I love all my giveaways, like I said, I have a safety threshold, if it meets that criteria, then it becomes a favorite.

Who does your blog appeal to? 

To every mother or parent who cares about the safety of their lifestyle, home and family.

What direction do you see your blog going in the future? 

I see my blog getting more attention from mothers like myself who are in search of answers for the well being of their loved ones. I would love to review lots of safe products, so mothers could come and find anything from safe baby product reviews to food safety and healthy lifestyles.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog? 

Getting readers. But that is a problem that every new blog site faces. I am ready to go all out and get people interested in health and safety at home.

What do you love about blogging? 

The different people I get to talk to everyday and knowing that I am contributing to a safer society.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve? 

None I can think of.

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

Just make sure you show real interest in the giveaway. Don’t leave comments like great enter me, etc. I want to know how you feel about the product and whatever feedbacks you might have.

Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.
