Saturday Featured Blog | Celebration Ideas Online

Welcome to Simply Stacie’s Saturday Featured Blog!

Today I would like to welcome Carol from Celebration Ideas.Online. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

Mom of 4 who works full time and blogs as a hobby. I am a sales executive for a wholesale manufacturer. Our site started as a family album as the kids began leaving for college and onto the “real world”.. we would post pictures and reminisce about all the fun we had.. it has since morphed into a site that share celebration ideas for everything!!

Please tell me about your blog.

It’s an album of family celebration ideas for just about anything…weddings, showers, holidays, birthdays, all things college and more! They are real ideas that we have done over the years and sharing with others who want to start their own family traditions.

How long have you been blogging?

since april 2008

How did you get started?

Bought a website building program

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

More ideas.. not products per say, other than Amazon.. most of the content is IDEAS and they are free.

What was your favourite giveaway?

Never done one, but am looking into it now.. open to suggestions!

Who does your blog appeal to?

Moms and families everywhere!

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

thinking we may have to add another one as the content niche is becoming so diversifed as our kids enter new phases of life.. weddings, grandkids etc.

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

trying to figure out the world of blogging – from html, to keywords to getting traffic to eventually making enough income that it could be my full time job!! 🙂

What do you love about blogging?

love sharing, love my visitors who share their ideas, love networking with other mom bloggers

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

there is a lot of junk on the internet.. sites with no real content and way too much affiliate sales.. I love organic sites that give good information

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

wish I could gain some as I have never done a give away and have no idea how to do one

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

love : tip junkie, type a texas mom, gourmet rooster, huffington post
