Welcome to Monday Meet and Greet, where I introduce a new blogger each Monday. This week’s blogger is Sarah from Sarah’s Blog of Fun.
How did you decide what to name your blog?: That was tough. I racked my brain over that for days. Then I just typed in Sarah’s Blog Of Fun, because I couldn’t think of anything else. I just started my blog to enter giveaways anyway, so why did it matter? I never would have thought my site would be what it is today!
Tell us 5 of your favorite things, and 5 of your least favorite things:
5 Favorite Things:
5 Least Favorite Things:
Only 24 hours in the day
Not working with my husband anymore (we both worked the same job for 8 years and saw each other all day!)
Losing money in the stock market
When and why did you start blogging?: I opened my blog in December 2009, but I really didn’t start using it until April 2010. Like I said above, I only opened it to enter giveaways. Then when I saw people doing reviews, I figured “Hey, I can do that too!” Then I started playing games on my site to try to make my blog different. Now it’s what it is today – HUGE!!! LOL.
What do you blog about?: You name it, I blog about it. Family, Deals, Reviews, Giveaways, Funny stories and pictures. I once wrote a post about doggie dentures!
What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it?: My Family loves it! Hubby, because I get a lot of neat new products he has never heard of or tried, and because I make money off of it now. With all my hard work over the last year, I won’t have to pay for any Christmas presents! The same goes for the rest of my family. My parents love to see what I get, and they love when they get to help review stuff, too!
When do you find the time to blog?: Well, I have two small kids, a hubby, dog, out of the house job, and some medical issues, so I never know when I am going to be on here. I at least try for an hour a day. Some days I am up all night to get work done!
What is your favorite blog post ever?: Right now I have to say Shampoo Warning- Must Read!!. This post has gone wild. I have had over 100,000 people view it. It’s crazy!
What is your favorite item you ever reviewed?: I haven’t written about it yet, but it’s an awesome item. I received a 26 ” Mirror Television for my bathroom. I am hoping to have it up soon!
What brand or product would you really like to work with/review?: This is a tough question. There are a lot of companies I want to work with. Hoover, Whirl Pool, Omaha Steaks, Ford (hint hint!).
What has been your biggest blogging challenge and how did you overcome it?: Learning. There is sooooo much to learn to do this job. There is always a new social media site to join, a new paid post site, etc. I haven’t overcome it, and I hope I never do! Learning all the new things makes my job fun.
What is the best advice or knowledge that you have found?: Ask questions. Bloggers are AWESOME people who are more then willing to help you out (myself included!). If you don’t understand something, just ask.
What advice would you give a new blogger?: Set realistic goals. Do not think your site is going to make you millions within a year. It takes a lot of time and hard work to get to the million mark! Has anyone hit that point yet?
What widget or feature could you not live without?: Rafflecopter. At first I didn’t like it, but now I love it. It makes writing and entering giveaways a lot faster.
What are your favorite blogs to read?: I have a lot of them! These are the ones I read the most. I have been following them for a long time.
