Blog Spotlight | Songberries


Today I would like to welcome Carol from Songberries. 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 a mother of 5, with 2 left at home and I have 3 grandkids. I love to run trails in the mountains. I’m 51 yrs old and in the last few years I’ve ran a couple of 50 mile races, 3 marathons, a 32 mile race over two mountains, and 2 steeplechases. I’m just sticking to shorter trails runs now. I love to bake, sew, craft and decorate and spend time with my family.  We have two mini schnauzers, Seamus and Ella and I breed mini schnauzer puppies.

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog is about lots of things, baking, sewing, crafting, my family, my faith and doing reviews and giveaways!

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging last May.

How did you get started?

My daughter Jennie started a blog called Tuffet. I loved her blog, so she helped me get mine set up. Jennie has 3 kids, so she doesn’t post as much as I do, but she has some fun things on her blog.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I feature products that interest me or my family members. I especially love makeup and clothes right now!

What was your favourite giveaway?

I would say the Soda Stream. My kids had so much fun making soda!

Who does your blog appeal to?

Someone who is looking for something to bake, make for dinner, or for a crafting idea or someone who wants to win a giveaway. Poke around a little, there is something for everyone.

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

I’m not sure, I’m having so much fun with the way it is!

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

Balancing my housework with blogging! Or maybe I should say lack of housework lately! lol!

What do you love about blogging?

Making new friends! I love the comments on my posts! I get excited knowing that someone is out there! I’m also loving sharing all the great products I’m finding.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

I do really hate the people that post advertising on my old posts. Hello, it’s monitored!

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

Just make sure you leave a way for me to contact you. I know it’s hard to read blogs every day andI would hate to have to pick a new winner. I don’t have any advice for newbie review bloggers, becauseI’m a newbie, lol!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

Well, Stacie your’s is one of my favorites, I also like Amanda’s blog (My Life With Rats And More) then there are Disney’s Ruffles and Stuff, 406 Olivia, Sumo’s Sweet Stuff  and Pursesnickety, Myla has such great purses!

How can people find you?

Well, if you don’t see me out running somewhere or if I don’t answer the doorbell because I’m baking, you can find me at
