Blog Spotlight | Real Mom Reviews


Today I would like to welcome Skye from Real Mom Reviews. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

Where to start. My name is Skye. I am a Stay At Home Mom to Ethan (4), Carlee (2) and Emmitt (born 2 weeks ago). I have been married to my wonderful husband Nathan for 4 years. Together we are also raising our three nephews, Tyler (8), Blake (6), Derrick (4) and my sister Natalie (14)

Emmitt will be here 3/1/11, and our wedding anniversary is 2/28 🙂

Please tell me about your blog.

Real Mom Reviews is a place to find honest reviews about products myself, or my family have personally used! Most reviews you see on my blog will also include a pretty nifty giveaway, so a reader can try the product out as well!!

How long have you been blogging?

I opened my blog November 2nd 2010, and featured my first review November 15th 2010!

How did you get started?

I was entering giveaways for a long while, and one day my husband actually suggested I contact companies to do my OWN reviews! So I did!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

Anything my family can use! Baby items, kitchen stuff, clothes, you name it and we will try it out.

What was your favorite giveaway?

I honestly don’t have a favorite! I love working with companies that are so sure about their product that they not only want me to try it out, but they want one of my readers to try it out too! With all reviews, I try my hardest to offer a giveaway!

Who does your blog appeal to?

I feel that my blog appeals to everyone! I am a ‘young mom’, yet technically I am the mom of a teen too! I can cover such a wide range of product reviews with my family, I am sure anyone who tries to love my blog, will fall so deeply they check it every day.

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

Switching from blogspot to a custom domain. It was a 72+ hour nightmare! Content disappeared, followers vanished! Mix that stress with being 8 months pregnant, and all of you should feel bad for my husband!

What do you love about blogging?

Recently I have had a huge influx of others bloggers contact me for help and advice! I love being able to make friends with them, and know that the advice I am giving them is really helping their blogs! I love meeting new people, and it is great to have friends that blog, so understand ‘bloggy talk’!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

Captcha.. For the love of blogs.. Turn it off!

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

If you want to win, do every single extra entry! If you do everything, you have over 40 entries to the giveaway!!

Do you have any advice for newbie review bloggers?

Don’t give up and don’t be afraid to ask for help!

Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.

I have to pick?!
Well, If I don’t include hubbys here, I may not hear the end of it!

I also visit almost every day


I have tons others I love too tho!
