Blog Spotlight | Mommy of 1 and Counting

Mommy Of 1 and Counting

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 Heather from Mommy of 1 and Counting. 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 Heather and I am a Stay At Home mom to a 3 year old little girl and 2 dogs. We will start homeschooling in the fall and I can’t wait for that. I will be getting married this year to my best friend.

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog is Mommy Of 1 and Counting (so you can link it http://www.heatherandavery.blogspot.com/). I picked the name because I love the Duggar’s and their show 19 Kids and Counting, and I also have 1 child and want more in the future. When I have more children my name will just change accordingly.

I love blogging. It gives me a chance to meet new people everyday. I can also review new products and give my honest opinion of them.

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging in March 2009 and started reviewing products in August 2009.

How did you get started?

I started by entering giveaways myself and if I had a blog I could get extra entries by blogging about them. That’s when my blog started. After a while I decided I wanted to get into reviewing products myself, So I did!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I have a little of everything on my blog. I try to hit all audiences.

What was your favourite giveaway?

I have so many favorites. Rabbit Air Air Purifier, Guidecraft toys, Air-O-Swiss Humidifier and so many others. I love all of my giveaways equally.

Who does your blog appeal to?

I try and appeal to everyone. It’s mostly aimed at parent’s, but I try for everyone.

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

I just hope it gets bigger and more well known. I also want to switch to wordpress and think that will help me go in the right direction.

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

Trying to find the time to blog daily with a toddler and a couple dogs to take care of. As well as appointments and all the other stuff that comes with mommyhood. It’s hard finding time.

What do you love about blogging?

I love meeting new people and getting to try new products and let readers know my true opinions of those products.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

Dishonesty for sure.

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

Do the extra entries. They mean so much. Almost every one of my winners wins on an extra entry. I enter giveaways as well, I can honestly say that they don’t take that much time.

How can people find you?

You can find me at Mommy Of 1 and Counting. On Twitter @hmahan_0529, or on Facebookhttp://www.facebook.com/HeatherM0529. If not there you can find me spending time with my family.
