Today I would like to welcome Christy from All Aboard (the review & giveaway train). I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I am a cloth diapering, money saving, SAHM…loving my time with my 2 children. My son will turn 3 in September (2 days before my 35 birthday). My daughter just celebrated her 1st birthday at the beginning of June. I am a former teacher, with a Master’s in Curriculum & Development. When my kids are old enough to got to school, then I will got back to work…hopefully teaching – but it’s difficult to find a teaching job in the small mountain community where we live.

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog is very new…what I call the infant stage…but growing daily. The premise of my blog is to offer my honest opinion/review of products, find amazing giveaways (either held by me or fellow bloggers), and share sales & freebies with my readers.

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging back in March…but my review/giveaway blog just started in June.

How did you get started?

I started blogging about giveaways after entering several giveaways for myself. I was enjoying visiting all the different blogs, so I thought why not start one & introduce products to my friends & family.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I will feature all types of products on my blog…from gift cards, handmade products, laundry soap, new products, etc. I am mainly focusing on products I can use in my house or with my family.

What was your favourite giveaway?

I LOVE all giveaways.

Who does your blog appeal to?

Everyone! Moms, dads, toddlers & babies

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

I would like to see my blog gain more followers so I can offer BIGGER & BETTER giveaways.

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

Finding companies willing to sponsor a giveaway with a new blogger like me.

What do you love about blogging?

Meeting new people…and sharing fun giveaways with my readers.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

The security code you have to type in to allow your comment to be published! Argh!

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

Enter all the giveaways…because you never know who’s going to win! Don’t hesitate to contact the blogger if you have questions about the giveaway or contest rules.

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

I have all my favorite blog buttons on my page. Mommy Wants Freebies is the blogging mommy that helped me get started…so extra props go to her.
