Welcome to Monday Meet & Greet, where I introduce a new blogger each Monday. This week’s blogger is Ashley from And the Little Ones, Too.
How did you decide what to name your blog?: I wanted something cute but also something that would also cover future kids.
Tell us a little bit about you: I am a working mother of two boys and am also helping support my husband through school.
When and why did you start blogging?: I started blogging a couple days before my son’s first birthday to help my family keep up with how he was doing. In the past year or so, I began doing more writing and dedicating myself to my blog. I dove into reviewing and loved it right away. I’ve been happy with it ever since.
What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it?: My husband is the only one who reads it regularly. It doesn’t bother me that they don’t read it…much. I know that if I wrote something that I wanted them to read and told them about it, they would check it out.
When do you find the time to blog?: I do most of my writing either right before bed after the boys go to sleep or during work. Sometimes its slow where I work and I could write three posts in a day and schedule them to keep up with days where there just aren’t any extra hours.
What is your favorite item you ever reviewed?: I have two favorite items I’ve reviewed. The first is a post I just published last week called Luminess Air and the other favorite is the SodaStream review. Those were the two I had the most fun with.
What brand or product would you really like to work with/review?: I don’t have a specific company I’d love to work with but I would love to review a car seat. You can only do so much in the stores and I loved Hayden’s convertible seat, but I am always on a lookout for a new one.
What advice would you give a new blogger?: Reach out to other bloggers and interact with them. I have found that I wouldn’t know as much as I do without the help of other bloggers around.
What widget or feature could you not live without?: Commentluv. It makes it so much easier for me to visit other blogs and check out what they write about. Maybe even start following them.
