Take A Mom's Word for It
Today I would like to welcome Kady from Take A Mom’s Word For It. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I’m Kady, a 32 year old Mommy, Wife, Sister, Aunt and Daughter. I have 3 very bright and beautiful girls aged 5, 5, and 2! Yes twins, yes a surprise, no, not identical, and yes we were worried about having twins again (that should about cover the standard questions I get!). I have been married for 8 years this summer to a fantastic, hard working and dedicated man who keeps me going. Though I am an elementary school teacher, I extended my leave after having my youngest and am enjoying every minute of it… ok, not EVERY minute of it, but you get my point!  I am a self proclaimed computer addict and lover of all things family!

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog is a place where I can share some of the daily happenings of my family, share my creative side, review products and host giveaways… all for Moms by a Mom!

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging March 13th, 2010.  Yes, you read that right!  I only started in the blogging world last month and I’m pretty sure there’s no turning back!

How did you get started?

I had been spending time reading other blogs ( and even winning some of their giveaways) when I started to think that this might be a good hobby – you know, in my spare time! Ha!  I also loved the idea of trying out products that other Moms and families would appreciate.  I know I value the opinion of other Moms and guessed others did too.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I feature products made by Moms, and products that make Moms’ lives easier – these two generally go hand in hand!
What was your favourite giveaway?I haven’t completed many giveaways at this point – I’m only a month old remember!  BUT, I do have some great ones lined up!

Who does your blog appeal to?

My blog appeals to… MOMS!

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

I intend to review more products and be able to compile “quick lists” for my readers. For example, “Best Items For Toddler Play”, etc.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?Ensuring my blog has all the functionality I want it to have… it’s a work in progress!

What do you love about blogging?

I love the raw nature of it.  Sharing real thoughts in a virtual medium, gaining insights into my own life and beliefs through reflection and conversation.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

MUSIC!  I am certainly NOT a fan of blogs with music!  There is something about it that just seems invasive.

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

A lot of my giveaways have similar ways to enter – take a few extra minutes the first time and save yourself time later – I’m all about saving time and effort!  As for advice… I’M a newbie!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

Boobies, Babies & A Blog is a favourite – she writes with great humour!  I also enjoy Take It For Me – they host some fantastic giveaways!

How can people find you?
