Blog Spotlight: Mom Start

MomStart

Today I would like to welcome Louise from Mom Start. 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 stay at home mom loving my two kids every day. Zoe is 3 and Miles is 2 and there isn’t a day that goes by that they don’t get into something together. So I spend my time chasing them and spare time blogging.

Please tell me about your blog.

Mom Start is almost two years old and belongs in the mommy blog category. I host a ton of reviews and giveaways and the rest is about my family and our experiences.

How long have you been blogging?

Almost 2 years.

How did you get started?

I started out writing about saving money and using coupons. I knew that I wanted to review products and It quickly evolved into reviewing products but occasionally I will still share a great deal.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I feature all kinds of products, it is almost where I’ll just write about what I’m in the mood for, and even if it is a product review, if you read it carefully there will be a story about my family included.

What was your favorite giveaway?

I had a lot of fun hosting the Select Comfort Sleep Number bed.

Who does your blog appeal to?

My blog still appeals to those who like to save money, because winning something is the same as getting something for free. Other than that I think I appeal to stay at home moms and women surfing the web.

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

I hope to cut down on the reviews because it is a lot of work. I love doing it, but I’m going to be more selective on who I work with as I move more towards how products impact my life rather than just getting content.

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

Time, I’m sure I’m not alone but there are not enough hours in the day to do EVERYTHING that I would like to do.

What do you love about blogging?

I love having a voice and being an influencer but above all, I love the community!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

When someone links to the word HERE.

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

Read the directions and use a schedule. Try very hard to stay organized and stick to it. Something big will come along if you keep it up.

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

I love reading Momspective, From Dates to Diapers, and 5minutesformom.

How can people find you?
