Today I would like to welcome Carly from Living the Scream! I had a chance to learn more about herblog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
I am a stay at home mom to three girls. I love chocolate and hate cleaning with a passion. I love good food and taking naps. I really enjoy social media and meeting so many fun people through twitter and blogs.
I also love to laugh especially at my self. I am pretty klutzy.
Please tell me about your blog.
My blog is a humorous realistic look into raising all girls who are full of drama. I love to write about parenting and tips that help me keep my sanity as a parent. I also enjoy reviewing fun products and having giveaways. There are so many things that are hilarious about being a parent. I like to share them all. Also being a parent is tough and I am truly living the scream every day! My goal is to write things that ring true with every day parents.
How did you get started?
I was desperately trying to find something that I loved to do. I had a private family blog, but I wanted to write more than just about family events. As soon as I stumbled onto the mom blogging scene I knew it was a perfect match. I enjoy all aspects blogging and have loved developing my brand and having such fun opportunities.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
Mostly products that apply to mothers and kid’s I also love featuring products from where I am from (Utah) I only like to review things that I am really interested in and nothing too pricey.
What was your favourite giveaway?
hmmm I did a review for a local chocolate company called Utah truffles, They are my favorite kind of chocolates. I got to give away a hundred dollars worth of their chocolate truffles! I was so excited to give away that much chocolate. I only wish that I could have entered.
Who does your blog appeal to?
I think a lot of different people. My Dad is probably my biggest fan. But my target audience is mom’s.
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
have a lot of big plans for Living The Scream. I would love to work with more brands and just continue to grow my readership and to become a fun place to come and laugh and relate about the ups and downs of parenting.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
Consistency, I have a hard time getting the same amount of posts up every week. I know posting every day is just too much for me right now but I would love to keep a better schedule of my posts each week and become a little more organized.
What do you love about blogging?
I love the community that you find through blogging. I love the creativity and I love how there are so many amazingly strong woman out there willing to share so much of themselves.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
Long posts. I have a hard time reading a post that is super long. I have a horribly short attention span!
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers?
Review things that you have an interest in and be willing to turn things down that don’t fit with your blog.
Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.
