Today I would like to welcome Karissa from With Our Best. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say:

Please tell me about yourself.

Hello! I am an administrative assistant, flight attendant and blogger. Soon to be just the latter two! I love food, thrift shopping, traveling, reading and, well, most everything except the gym!

Please tell me about your blog. is mainly product reviews and giveaways, with some freebies, recipes and travel tips thrown into the mix.

How long have you been blogging?

June 2010 (I can finally say “Since last year!”). I am a newbie that appreciates all tips and pointers!

How did you get started?

Thanks to the economy, within one year’s span, I was laid off twice!! I was following a few blogs at the time and decided to start my own – to keep me busy – while searching for yet another job!

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

We feature a range of the best products out there! These include: clothes, baby items, food, cleaning supplies, decorative, gift cards and more! I love giving away great products to my readers – it makes it all worth it!

What was your favourite giveaway?

Hard Q! There are so many! Currently, we are giving away a SavvyRest Pillow (ARV $79) and a $50 Gift Certificate to These both rock my world… the pillow is to die for and I absolutely love!!

Who does your blog appeal to?

Mainly women – ages 24-35 –after all, we are women writing it! But we surprisingly have a decent amount of men followers too!

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

Realizing I am giving it my best, and that is good enough. It is easy to get down on myself… especially since I follow so many talented bloggers!

What do you love about blogging?

I love seeing posts and events come together. I love connecting with readers. I love “meeting” other bloggers.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

Google Page Rank, need I say more?

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

It is fun and easy, just read the rules carefully once – because they apply to ALL the giveaways on my site! Simple!

Newbie review bloggers?

Don’t expect an easy journey. It is time consuming, exhausting, frustrating… but can be totally worth it and amazing in the end. You make it what it is!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

I am insanely addicted to reading blogs. Literally there are about 50 that I visit a few times a week. My favorite blogs to follow: decorating and craft blogs, coupons and deals blogs, review and giveaway blogs.
