Saturday Featured Blog | Sunshine and Sippy Cups

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 Maegan from Sunshine and Sippy Cups. I had a chance to learn more about herblog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

My name is Meagan, and I’m a new mom to a cupcake-cheeked baby girl.

My favorite colors are sparkle and polka-dot.

My favorite food is cupcakes.

I cannot act like an adult unless I have coffee. Before coffee, I am a cross between a whining little child and a scary movie zombie. Serious.

I love to create and craft. I’m a freebie junkie. I love contests/sweeps/giveaways, and win tons of stuff I don’t need, but continue to enter them in hopes of winning the “BIG” one someday 🙂

Please tell me about your blog.

My blog is Sunshine and Sippy Cups, Fun Tips for Busy Moms! It is a little bit random, just like me 🙂 I post tons of new daily freebies, deals, and giveaways. I write reviews about companies or products that I love and think others should know about too. I share anything I come across thats fun, frugal, and helpful… If I love it, I bet some other mommas will too!

How did you get started?

I was ALWAYS being asked, “How do you get SO MUCH free stuff??” There are SOOO many ways that I get fun things, and it was hard to explain it all. So I started sharing finds on my Facebook page. And everyone starting asking MORE questions!

When my employer decided not to have me return from maternity leave, and I wasn’t sure what my next move was, I decided to start a blog! I love it 🙂

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?

Anything family friendly, that I believe is a great product. I can’t promote stuff I don’t think is quality.

Topics I love most: Frugal, Organic, Crafty.

Who does your blog appeal to?

Busy moms on a budget. Anyone who wants to save money, and still have fun!

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

Growing bigger and better all of the time!

I want to start adding more “fun” content, in addition to the freebies and deals. More craft project tutorials, kids activites, etc.

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

Getting started! I knew NOTHING about all of this stuff. But all by myself, I set up a hosting account, registered a domain name, and set up my WordPress account…. and then picked a theme and got rockin! Learning all of this was way out of my comfort zone, and I am super proud of what I’ve accomplished so quickly!

What do you love about blogging?

I LOVE meeting so many new people, I LOVE the support from others, and I LOVE learning something new everyday!

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

Not yet… So far, so good 🙂

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

When entering any giveaway, on any blog, be sure to fully read the directions!

Most of us state that each thing that you do, tell us about it in a NEW comment, so that you get multiple entries. Many people miss this, and put all of their entries into just one comment.

I try to let them know, so they can go back and get their entries, but lots of people miss out!!

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

The ladies at The Daily Goodie Bag have been really helpful!

Whiskey in My Sippy Cup is the most hilariously inappropriate blog I’ve read. Ever. So funny.

Tatertots and Jello has such fun projects!

How can people find you?
