Welcome to Monday Meet and Greet, where I introduce a new blogger each Monday. This week’s blogger is Skye from Real Mom Reviews.
A bit about Real Mom Reviews: As the mother of six (five under the age of 7) and a 15 year old, I have done my fair share of shopping for baby products. I am a 23-year-old middle class mom from Pennsylvania and I don’t like to part with money unless I know it is on a product I am going to love.
For the longest time I relied on consumer reports and the ratings on websites to influence my decision on what product I was going to buy. But then I took a step back and realized that most people only write a review on a site like that if they do not like the product. Being extremely picky about what I purchased for my kids, this just was not the type of review I could trust anymore. So I decided to start writing my own.
Five of my favorite things:
Singing loud in the car
When do you find the time to blog?: Some days, I dont sleep! :) I love blogging, I love trying out new things, and I love the look on my kiddos’ faces when a package arrives at the door. However, my neighbors think I have a shopping addiction.
When did you start blogging?: Real Mom Reviews was established November 14th, 2010. My favorite blog post ever is “Bottles Are For Baby Dolls.”
What brand or product would you really like to work with/review?: A mattress! I would kill for a new mattress!!
What has been your biggest blogging challenge, and how did you overcome it?: Getting my husband to realize it was a full time job. It took almost a year for him to realize that my blog is my job!
What advice would you give a new blogger?: Make blogging friends and join free events.
