Welcome to Monday Meet and Greet, where I introduce a new blogger each Monday. This week’s blogger is Bri from Eco Baby Mama Drama.
How did you decide what to name your blog?: I knew I wanted something with ‘eco’ and ‘baby’ because my focus when I started was baby products as I was a new mom again and my best friend actually came up with the name. It made me laugh, so I ran with it!
Tell us 5 of your favorite things:
My 3 boys (even though they drive a mama crazy!)
Being a stay at home mom
Sweets (salty is yummy too!)
Watching law shows
Finding a great deal
Tell us 5 of Your Least Favorite Things:
A huge store that starts with W
When and why did you start blogging?: I started my own blog in April after being a contributor on another blog for quite awhile. I wanted to expand the things I was able to write about. What better way to do that than start my own blog and have full control of the topics?
What do you blog about?: Pretty much anything that is family friendly. I love environmentally friendly products for reviews.
What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it?: My immediate family thinks it is great and support me a lot. My extended family doesn’t really get it. My 13-year-old follows me and reads every post (he is an email subscriber!) and my husband proof reads for me sometimes.
When do you find the time to blog?: I get about a 30 minute window daily between nap time starting and my oldest arriving home from school, so finding time is a challenge.
What is your favorite blog post ever?: This update to a 5 part series in which I shared my youngest’s struggle with c-diff.
What has been your biggest blogging challenge?: I struggle with every post. I am a very insecure writer and never know if my posts are too long, too short, or just not interesting. I am also very tech challenged, so simply watermarking a picture is difficult for me.
What advice would you give a new blogger?: Network and make other blogging friends. They are invaluable.
What are your favorite blogs to read?: I used to read tons of blogs. However, I’m rarely able to now as any free time I have I spend working on my own blog!
