Blog Spotlight: Let’s Win!

Today I would like to welcome Rebekah from Let’s Win! I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

Last year, my husband and I got married and moved from Oregon to Las Vegas. I am a private music teacher, and he is finishing his master’s degree in music composition. This winter, he will be applying to doctoral programs, and I am excited to find out where we will be moving next!

I have always wanted to adopt a child, and my husband agrees whole-heartedly. I’ve been researching international adoption specifically; we plan to start the process once he graduates the doctoral program.

Please tell me about your blog.

My review/giveaway blog is where I share my experiences with the products I choose to review. I try very hard to find products that I think are relevant and would be useful to my readers.

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging on April 30, 2010. It hasn’t even been three months now, and I love it! Blogging can be so addictive.

How did you get started?

I started entering blog giveaways and really enjoyed that, so one day I just started my own.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I feature many different types of products, but the majority have been women’s items.

What was your favourite giveaway?

I really enjoyed the Misikko flat iron and the Sodastream soda maker.

Who does your blog appeal to?

Mainly women

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

My blog has changed a lot in the short time I’ve had it. I don’t have any specific plans for its future, but I am excited to watch as it slowly develops and begins to reflect my personality more and more.

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

My biggest challenge has been trying to keep my blog from sounding like one big commercial; I don’t want my blog to be like that. I want people to get to know me through my blog.

What do you love about blogging?

I love connecting with other bloggers.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?


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

For people entering the giveaways, the daily tweets are a quick and easy way to get lots of entries and the majority of people don’t do them. If you really like the prize, go for it!

Advice for newbie review bloggers. Write a couple of reviews of items you already own, so you can show examples of your work. Then contact as many businesses as you possibly can. I have contacted almost 200, most don’t reply or turn me down. But some great companies have said yes!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

I read blogs on lots of different subjects, but I really enjoy home decor and design blogs.

How can people find you?
