Blog Spotlight | Mommy Has to Work


Today I would like to welcome Anne from Mommy Has to Work. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I work full time outside the home. I have 2 children and helped raise my husbands 3 boys. I love crafts, but never have time. I’m really into going green and recycling. I think it’s important to teach our children the importance of taking care of our Earth.

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog is basically a review blog, but with family fun stuff and help with going green and recycling. I try to focus on eco-friendly products. I do some sponsored post as well, but try to keep it related to me or my blog. Not just any posts.

How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been blogging since May 2009.

How did you get started?

My husband stopped working due to illness and I started reading blogs to save money. I saw so many cool blogs and heard that some of them make money and thought, I can do that. It’s not what I thought it would be, but I love it!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

Family friendly, eco-friendly, green.

What was your favourite giveaway?

The reusable baggies.

Who does your blog appeal to?

really everyone.

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

I guess the same, but with more following, maybe some bigger companies. That would be nice right. I mean who wouldn’t want to review a fridge or drive a car for a month. I’d love to go some conferences too!

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

Trying to find time to fit it in with everything else.

What do you love about blogging?

I’d be lying if I didn’t say reviewing cool products, but also meeting some great people along the way.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

oh I don’t know.

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

my giveaways are pretty easy.

newbie review bloggers?

Take it slow, it will all come in time. Don’t be afraid to ask other bloggers for info. I’ve asked in the past and still today and always get help. Bloggers are wonderful people and always willing to share and help out.

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

The Frugal Girl -I love all her tips!

Yours of course!, The Suburban Jungle has some cool posts.
