Blog Spotlight | Opinions of a Moody Mama

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 Kristyn from Opinions of a Moody Mama. I had a chance to learn more about her blogs and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I have a 2 year old son, Cooper. I have been married for 4 years to my high school sweetheart, Daniel. We live in North Carolina. I work outside of the home as a Financial Counselor for Oncology during the day, and I blog at night after my son goes to bed. Our life is crazy busy, but we love it!

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog consists of reviews and giveaways of products geared toward children and their parents.

How long have you been blogging?

I just started blogging in February 2010, though I have been a “blog stalker” for years!

How did you get started?

I thought about starting my own blog for quite a while, then one night I just decided to go for it! I created my blog on a Sunday, had a layout designed by Wednesday, and I hosted my first review and giveaway the following week! It’s been a whirlwind process, but it has also been alot of fun!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I feature products that are designed for children and their parents.

What was your favourite giveaway?

Oh, that’s a tough one! I love doing Etsy reviews, because I am a huge fan of handmade products, so I would have to say any of those giveaways. If I had to choose just one, I would say the Corinna Couture giveaway, which was my first. I was so lucky to find someone as nice as Corinna to work with me, especially considering I was a brand new blogger. I actually have 2 other Corinna Couture reviews and giveaways coming up soon!

Who does your blog appeal to?

My blog appeals to anyone who is interested in up and coming children’s products.

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

I hope to continue to grow and get to know my readers.

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

My biggest challenge so far has been finding a healthy balance between work, family and blogging. I am still trying to work out the perfect routine since my blog is still so new.

What do you love about blogging?

I love that I get the opportunity to discover new products and tell others about them. I also love reading other blogs! You can learn so much from each and every one!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

Yes, I hate people who find a way to post their spam in the comments of my reviews and giveaways!

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

To those who are entering my giveaways, be sure and do all of the extra entries offered! It always seems like the winning comment is someone who tweeted or is a Facebook fan.

As far as advice for newbie bloggers, I don’t have any since I am still a newbie myself! I am always looking for advice from experienced bloggers, so if you have something to share, please feel free to contact me!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

My Four Monkeys, Eighty MPH Mom, Simply Stacie, 5 Vinez Monkeys, and One Bored Mommy… just to name a few!

How can people find you?

You can visit me at . I look forward to meeting you! 🙂
