Blog Spotlight | The Domestic Princess
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 Christine from The Domestic Princess. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
My husband and I just bought our first house in April and have been trying to figure out all the fun stuff that comes with first time homeownership.
Please tell me about your blog.
The Domestic Princess is a blog about my husband and I rehabbing our foreclosure with all things ‘domestic’ thrown in. I love sharing decorating and cleaning tips, along with cooking, working out, etc.
How long have you been blogging?
Since May ’09
How did you get started?
The Domestic Princess started out as just a collection of all of our before and after pictures but has turned into my outlet for being creative.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
Anything is game. Tell me a product that you want to know if it’s worth buying or not and I’ll review it for you
What was your favorite giveaway?
My first giveaway was a Paint giveaway, including everything you would need to get started painting, which is our favorite thing to do 😉 I think that will always be my favorite because it was my first. Tear!
Who does your blog appeal to?
Working and Non working “Domestically” inclined and not-so-inclined women. Sorry, Men just don’t seem that interested. Except for my husband, of course, he’s a loyal reader 😉
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
We will begin our trying to conceive our first child soon, so this will be a new aspect of my life I will be writing about but will not consume the blog.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
I think the challenges I’ve faced are pretty normal: Keeping the content fresh
What do you love about blogging?
All the great women I get to meet and talk to. I’m a Quality Analyst by day, so I’m often stuck in my cube with no social activity all day, it’s great to get to connect with women from all over.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
Who doesn’t embedded comments! I love to comment on blogs and interact with others and often do this from work (shhh, don’t tell my boss). When the comments are embedded I don’t have a way to comment.
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? Newbie review bloggers?
Get on Twitter and start networking. The groups that are available are there to support you and your blog, so join. Don’t be shy!
Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.
