Blog Spotlight | Bzzing Mom

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]

Today I would like to welcome Rebecca from Bzzing Mom. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

Well I have a blog called Bzzing Mom.  I started bloging back in January, and I just got serious about it in May.  And everythings really starting to take off.  I also just started to review for another blog called What’s That Buzz.  I’m a mother to a beautiful little girl, and have a wonderful fiance.  I’m also going school online to get my certificate in photography.  So as you can imagine, my life can get pretty busy at times!

Please tell me about your blog.

I started Bzzing Mom back in January, but only did a couple of posts.  I wasn’t too sure what I was doing, and I really just started it, because I felt like it.  But the more I got into it, I really enjoyed it.  And now you hardly can catch a day where I’m not on the computer at least once, doing something blog related!  I write my blog mostly for moms, and women. Because as women, we have so many roles, and so many interests, and I try to cover all that.  I do reviews, giveaways, and personal posts, on parenting, books, movies, adult related stuff, children related stuff.  Really just about anything! 🙂

How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been blogging for about 7 months now, though I really got serious about it in May.

How did you get started?

Well actually I read a blog, and thought man I want to do that.  I’ve always loved to write, and express myself.  But I never thought it would open up as many opportunities as it has!  And I’m excited to see where it’s going to take me!

What kinds of products do you feature on you blog?

Because my audience is women of all ages, and with or without kids, I feature tons of different products.  Childrens, adult, and teen books.  Mens, womens, childrens clothes. So you kind of get the point, a little bit of everything for everyone!

What was your favourite giveaway?

Ok this is going to seem absolutly silly but, so far my favorite giveaway has been softlips, and I’ll tell you why.  It brang a lot of traffic to my blog (ok that’s me being selfish!), but the number one reason why is because, when the winner received her prize, she emailed me, and told me how much she loved it, and how she was going to share the love with her step daughter, and niece!  It made me happy knowing she truely enjoyed her prize!

Who does your blog appeal to?

I try to make it appeal to women of all ages.  But since I’m a young mom (I had my daughter when I was 16), have a two year old daughter, and a fiance, I find myself writing about those things in my personal posts.  Althought my reviews, and giveaways include everyone.  I’m not a shy person though, so I do review adult products on occasion, and talk about just about everything.

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

All the way to the top 🙂 No, actually I’ve never thought about it.  I’d like to just make my readers happy, and stay true to myself, and in return, hope it takes me somewhere unexpected!

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

The biggest challenge, is trying to fit more hours into the day, then waking up exhausted, and doing it all over again!  But I think that’s my biggest challenge period 🙂

What do you love about blogging?

I love to freedom to express myself.  I love all the opportunities I’ve been given, and I love doing giveaways, and hearing from the winners, telling me how much they love their products.  I love being able to put smiles on other peoples faces, because you never know who could use a smile?!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

Yes, it irritates me that some bloggers that have doing this longer, don’t want to help newer bloggers out.  It’s like they want to keep, all the golden secrets to themselves.  But not all are like that!  Stacie, your blog is fanastic, and you have no idea all the countless help you’ve given me!  And I want to thank you for that! 🙂

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

Yes, please put your email address in at least one comment, because otherwise, I can’t contact you!  Just make sure you read the details, when entering giveaways! Newbie review bloggers:  Do your on thing. Don’t always worry about what everyone else is doing.  Review things that match your blog.  And don’t give up, there are company’s that do want to work with you! 🙂

Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.

Simply Stacie, Laughing Lindsey, “Deal”icious Mom, Mommy’s “Free” Time, and Freebies 4 Mom.  Those are just a couple of my favorites, that couple to the top of my head!

How can people find you?

My email is always up, so if you ever need me email me at: [email protected] other than that, I’m usually on Pitch It To Me.
