Saturday Featured Blog | Bargain Mom
Today I would like to welcome Kai from Bargain Mom. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
I am a 30-something mother of three, business owner and bargainista. I love finding bargains and freebies, and sharing them with others. In my free time I love shopping, bowling, attending concerts, watching movies, traveling, dining out, and entering giveaways.
Please tell me about your blog.
My blog lists the latest bargains and freebies, and provides service and product reviews to help my readers spend wisely. I also regularly host great giveaways.
How long have you been blogging?
A year in April
How did you get started?
I was sitting and home bored one day, and decided I would start a blog to share the bargains I find with others.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
I feature everything from childrens products to books, liquor to electronics, and everything in-between.
What was your favourite giveaway?
My Ringing in the New Year Grand Prize giveaway, which included a $500 Visa gift card, a vacation to Cancun, and over $1,000 in sponsored prizes.
Who does your blog appeal to?
Anyone who likes bargains, freebies, reviews and giveaways.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
In the feature, I see my blog as being the go to site for bargain hunters, and giveaway enthusiasts.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
Getting local (Michigan) people to follow my blog. I have giveaways that are just for Michigan residents, but 99% of my readers are elsewhere.
What do you love about blogging?
I love helping people save money, and interacting with others thoughout the day.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
I dislike people who enter my giveaways from more than one account, or those who do not follow all the rules in the giveaway.
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?
Those entering my giveaways should follow the rules! Newbie review bloggers, shouldn’t write lengthy reviews. It takes up too much of your time, and readers will lose interest.
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
