Saturday Featured Blog: Modest 4 Me

Welcome to Simply Stacie’s Saturday Featured Blog! If you would like your blog featured, please fill out this form.

Today I would like to welcome Nickelle from Modest 4 Me. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I’m a Stay at Home mom with 4 kids {so far…wink, wink} Ranging from 10yrs-19mos. My Husband is a Full Time Student! We Eat & Breathe School!

I love to Excercise, Create things… all kinds of things on the computer & off, I like to decorate & I love to Help other people in any way I can!

Please tell me about your blog.

I started Modest4me when Modbe Clothing went out of business in ’09 {I also run mymodbeblog} to help other Consultants like my self get rid of our Inventory because they went out of Business so quickly! I knew that a lot of people wouldn’t know & would google modbe & come across my modbe blog & then from their be directed to Modest4me. I wanted to help others sell & find Modest Clothing & Modest Swimear at a Reasonable Price. It was a win win situation! I did this for FREE ~ Post everyone’s items for them. It got to be too much work & I took it down for a little while but now I just recently brought it back & I’m loveing it all over again! You will also find other Modest Clothing Companies & Modest Swimwear Companies on the blog. I wanted to provide a place where people could go & shop all in one place. – I do reviews on products, giveaways & exclusive discounts only for my Subscribers of “mo’4me Exclusives” — our Newsletter! My blog is my “mommy time out” it’s my release! {every mom/person should have a release…} Plus! I get to do what I love too & this helping people!

How long have you been blogging?

My first blog was mymodbe blog & I started that Just before my son was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in ’07. I had been a Modbe Fashion Consultant since ’05 & was getting tired of the live in home parties & felt I needed to do something more on line since I felt my life was going to change with my son’s Diagnosis. {I had NO idea how to do a blog – I knew Nothing & taught myself Everything!} Which it did & in turn I was very blessed to have started my modbe blog to help bring in some extra income without leaving the house. Plus it was my release! ;o)

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

I feature Modest Clothing & Modest Swimwear Companies & the Products they have to offer! Plus Exclusive Discounts in the Newsletters {not necessarly posted on the blog!} Sometimes Reviews if the Company would like me to do one for them. On top of it all I add People’s New & Genlty Used Items for other People to shop & buy… the Sections are Tops, Swimwear, Jeans/Skirts, Dresses/Formals, Misc. Items.

What was your favourite giveaway?

My Favorite Giveaway so far has been Modest Swimwear Giveaways from some of the companies that I work with! It’s always nice to find one that you like, that fits, & that is FREE!! :o)

Who does your blog appeal to?

Women/Girls who are looking for Affordable, Fashionable Modest Clothing & Swimwear!

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

I eventually would like to get more Companies on board & also more people posting thier *New & Gently used items on the blog so we can all help eachother find what we are looking for & make a little money along the way by selling our Great Items that we no longer wear/need anymore! aka Formals – Dresses

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

My Biggest Challenge so far has been trying to keep up with all the New & Gently Used posts. It seems like when they do come they come in hurds ~ Everybody all at once! I Love the craziness of it though, it’s fun! :o)

What do you love about blogging?

The one thing I love is that it’s all mine…. I don’t have to talk to anyone about it, I just do it! ~ How I want, when I want, etc. It’s my release too!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

I don’t really know…. I do know that Blogger is really slow sometimes late at night while I’m working & that really bugs me! lol

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

The only advice I can think of to pass along is when you do a review type about how the product feels — if it’s clothing etc, describe how it feels. When people {women} shop on line we can’t touch it… we as women like to touch & feel it’s just part of our nature & when it’s on line we miss out on that — so if you can describe in detail how it feels you may get more reviews to do because the company you just did a review for just sold a bunch of products that you just described in “Detail” on how it felt! ;o)

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

some of my favorites are: Nie Nie Dialogues & HowDoesShe? {just to name a few…} ;o)

How can people find you?

you can find modest4me on fb and modest4me.blogspot.com or modest4me.com
