Blog Spotlight | H is for Hillman
Today I would like to welcome Jennifer from H is for Hillman. 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 25 year old wife to Aaron and SAHM mom to two beautiful children, Finley who is 3, and Ezra 15mos. I never feel like I have much time for myself, but when I do I love to cook, eat, shop and go for walks. I have a love for verything Handmade and have an unhealthy obbession for Etsy.
Please tell me about your blog.
I started my blog when we moved to Alaska in May 2008, Finley was just 4 mos and I wanted it to be a place for far away family and friends to keep up with our happenings. Well I don’t think any of the family memebers who requested the blog actually even looked at it, so I decided to make my blog more of a mommy blog, sharing with other moms advice, recipes, photos, and thoughts. I just recently started getting into reviews and giveaways and I have been having such a great time with that.
How long have you been blogging?
About 2 1/2 years.
How did you get started?I
got started by family members requesting that I keep them updated on Finley.

Tea Collection and Zutano. Great clothing brands for baby, can’t go wrong there.

Honestly, I have no idea. I just love to write and express my feelings and thoughts. If my blog didn’t go anywhere I would still feel accomplished by just doing what I have been doing and doing what I love.

As far as Reviews and giveaways go? Getting companies who require larger unique visits per month to sponser giveaways. I just want to bring my readers the best and most wanted giveaways.

Expressing my feelings, rants, complaints, thoughts and happiness. I also love connecting with other bloggers and moms and bringing my readers fun giveaways.
