Blog Spotlight | A Wrestling Addicted Mommy

 

Today I would like to welcome Gina from A Wrestling Addicted Mommy. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

My name is Gina, I’m the mom of two girls.  I’m a Canadian now transplanted into the USA living in Ohio all because of a man!  I met my hubby online and moved down here 9 years ago.

Please tell me about your blog.

A Wrestling Addicted Mommy is mostly a review/giveaway blog although I do tend to blog about random things, my life in general and a bit of wrestling thrown in there as well (from a woman’s perspective of course).  My blog is just a big ol mess of a lot of stuff, hopefully that interests a lot of different people.

How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been blogging faithfully since March of 2008 so 2+years 🙂

How did you get started?

I ran a Mommy message board for years, about 4 or 5 to be honest, and I was getting burned out and needed a change, I wasn’t loving what I was doing anymore on the message board.  A member of the board at that time introduced me to review blogging and I fell in love and haven’t turned back!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

Everything!  From children’s products, home decor, products for adults, men and women as well as geeky gadgets as well.  If it’s something I find interesting or that I think some of my readers can benefit from, I’ll feature them.

What was your favourite giveaway?

Gosh, I can’t really pin point one favorite giveaway, I love all the giveways!  It’s so fun to run a giveaway and make someone elses day when they win something.

Who does your blog appeal to?

Men and Women equally.  I don’t really post much about parenting in general or about pregnancy and baby products because as a family we’re well past that stage.  I have a super wide range of readers, 18+ with kids and without, married and single.  My blog appeals to just about all adults.

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

I hope to be able to turn more of a profit on it, lol but don’t we all?!  I honestly haven’t thought much about it, I just move on day by day.

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

Keeping up with things, sometimes life gets in the way and I become so unorganized with reviews and posts I tend to get behind, catching up isn’t always easy.

What do you love about blogging?

I love that it gives me my own outlet online to just write about whatever I want, and that people actually read and can give advice, relate or just laugh along.  I also love all the new great people I’ve met online and locally because of it.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

No, not really.

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

Always, ALWAYS read the rules on how to enter and the mandatory giveaways, if you subscribe to someone’s newsletter via email, always make sure you confirm your subscription.
Newbie Review Bloggers: Don’t sell yourself short, your always worth more than you think you are!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
