Blog Spotlight | Musings of a Misplaced Jersey Girl

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 Denise from Musings of a Misplaced Jersey Girl. 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 mom of a 7 year old boy. Been married 10 years. From NJ but moved to FL 4 years ago – other than the lack of snow, it’s an overrated state for so many reasons. I am a tech writer and am very involved in several local non-profit organizations. I like to scrapbook, go to the spa and love shopping! I’m a city girl- not a nature lover and there is a lot of nature down here in FL. I do love horseback riding though.

Please tell me about your blog.

I started blogging about 8 months ago so I could have a place to share my experiences with great products. Once I got started it took on a life of its own. I wanted to get back to less structured writing since I’m a tech writer. So at the encouragement of a fellow blogger/tech writer friend, I started blogging.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

Everything from children’s products to household stuff.

What was your favourite giveaway?

My fave giveaway was the Seat Snug product. It’s a great children’s car safety product that I believe in.

Who does your blog appeal to?

I hope it appeals to a wide range of people – moms, dads, single people.

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

With the help of an awesome blog designer(WackyJaquis), my blog just got a head to toe makeover. I rebranded, changed platforms, changed my name and got a fresh new look to go along with it. Everything now ties in so nicely. I want to get more involved and continue to grow my reader base, do great reviews and fabulous giveaways. I will be posting some great giveaways soon – CSN stores included. I’d love to hear your thoughts on my new blog and check out WackyJaquis’ design.

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

Traffic has been good but my giveaway entries could be higher and my biggest wish is for more people to leave comments. I love reading them!

What do you love about blogging?

the interaction when readers leave comments and trying out new products.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

lack of comments maybe? Or when you post a giveaway and people don’t follow instructions:)

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

read the instructions and enter in multiple ways.

Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.

Thoughts Appear, Ten Talents, Pink Vanilla Cupcakes, Bedtimes are for Suckers (the first anti-mommy blog)

How can people find you?
