Blog Spotlight: Lilac City Momma


Today I would like to welcome Hanan from Lilac City Momma. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say:

Please tell me about yourself.

Hi, im Hanan. Yes, unusual name. I like it. I just turned 24 last month. Im married to my best friend of 4.5 years and we have two beautiful girls. I have started to become passionate learning to sew, photography and now blogging. I recently just opened up my own online handmade childrens boutique!

Please tell me about your blog.

I started a blog last year for fun to write about our family. That kind of dwindled. About a month ago I started looking at mom blogs more. I love that you can have an outlet, almost a best friend to talk to and know that other moms out there are, have, or will deal with the same trial and tribulations as myself. Being a SAHM too, I wanted to find something I could eventually turn into a career for myself. I live in the Lilac City, so that’s where the name came from.

How long have you been blogging?

Almost 3 months.

How did you get started?

I started a blogger account and used to enter giveaways. I won a couple of times too! then one day i just went crazy reading other blogs, googleing how to’s for blogs, and joining mom networks and getting my name out there.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

Baby gear, games, fashion, books, anything family friendly!

My baby things giveaway’s are my favorite!!

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

I hope to one day be apart of the top ranking mom blogs. I would LOVE to be around still in 5-10 years.

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

Learning to maintain schedule. Finding time to blog, network, comment on other blogs and still clean, cook, and take care of my family.

What do you love about blogging?

I can write whatever the hell i want to! Plus, I love to try new things!!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

I don’t like when other bloggers come to your page just to ask you to follow them. I want others to read what I write as I do the same.
