Welcome to Simply Stacie’s Saturday Featured Blog!
Today I would like to welcome Alicia from The Mama Report. 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 former high school history and English teacher, but am currently a stay-at-home mom. I have three little boys ages 1, 3, and 6. I love history, genealogy, traveling, reading, cooking, and of course blogging.
Please tell me about your blog.
My blog is a bit of everything from our lives. The places we go, the things we see, the products we use, the recipes I am cooking, the toys we play with, the books we are reading.
How long have you been blogging?
How did you get started?
I had been reading several blogs for a while and it made me want to start me own. Luckily my husband knew exactly what to do to get me started and I have just continued from there.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
I feature a wide variety of products. Everything and anything that a family would use.
What was your favourite giveaway?
Hmmm…probably the America’s Test Kitchen Slow Cooker Revolution. I love America’s Test Kitchen.
Who does your blog appeal to?
Women and even more specifically moms.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
I believe my blog will continue to expand and grow in readership. I also see more wonderful giveaways in the future for my readers!
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
I have a hard time limiting myself. I have a type A personality and I could dedicate 24/7 to my blog, however I have a lot of other responsibilities. Essentially this is my first time being a working mother and it has taken me a while to find my balance.
What do you love about blogging?
I love the limitlessness. I can write about whatever I want. It is totally under my design. Few things in life are like that.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
At this point I don’t have any! Ask me in another few months!
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?
My advice for readers entering my giveaways is to maximize your entries by entering as many times as you are allowed. I have several followers who do this and it pays off. My advice for a newbie review blogger is to keep with it. It takes a while to find a voice and hit a groove. Just keep at it and things will start to come together.
Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.
I love sooo many blogs. Money Saving Mom, Pioneer Woman, Simply Stacie:), Totally Target, Marvelous Mom Reviews, Dear Chrissy, and Mommy Katie to name a few.
