I am an opinionated, frugal, breastfeeding mom of a toddler!
I have always been unafraid to voice my opinion, and now I have a whole slew of new ones about being a stay-at-home mom who also juggles a freelance editor career. With my blog (http://DagmarBleasdle.com) I want to share with you what I learned works and doesn’t work, what benefits your child and you. I want to become a resource and trusted “friend” you can rely on for information.
I write about what I am passionate about since becoming a mom two years ago: Doula-assisted/unmedicated childbirth, breastfeeding, attachment parenting, co-sleeping, natural remedies, frugal/green living, raising a healthy, creative, well-adjusted, bilingual child without Wii and XBox. You don’t have to agree with my opinion, but be assured that I am posting it because I believe what I have to share will help other moms.
I blog a few times a week. I am getting more and more visitors who are not related to me :) I guess word-of-mouth really works!
My blog is called "...and she lived..." because of a choice I made after my oldest son's father and I divorced. I chose to "live happily" I like to write about the things that make me happy. I love being a stay at home mom, crafting, cooking, decorating and since I don't have a job outside of the house, I also really enjoy saving my family as much money as possible! I've recently decided to talk more about the fact that my older son and I both have ADHD. I'm hoping that mamas in similar situations might find it helpful to read about the things that go on in our lives. I'd like to help them to feel as if they aren't alone because I know it can be incredibly frustrating at times.
I try and write at least a few times a week.
I do have visitors other than family and friends which is good because they've pretty much stopped listening to me tell them about all of the good deals they could be getting if they'd just start clipping coupons!
My blog is Professional SAHM and is at http://www.professionalsahm.com . I blog about issues that relate to stay-at-home moms. I chose that topic because I've been a SAHM for 17 1/2 years and have five kids, so it is what I know. I post 4 times a week. I do get visitors besides family and friends, though I am working on trying to get more. I still am surprised by how many visitors I get for somethings, while how few visitors I get for others. For instance, I did a review series about baby carriers. Well, the review for the Beco Butterfly II gets so much traffic. Much more than the reviews I wrote for the other 5 carriers. Not only that, a lot of people watch the You Tube video portion of the review, which I didn't even mean to be a stand alone. Go figure!
I blog about my challenges with being a housewife, since keeping house is truly one of the things I enjoy the least. I also blog about all the other things I like to do and read about when I really should be cleaning, ironing or doing laundry, like fashion, sales some beauty. I also host some giveaways, but don't do sponsored reviews.
I shoot for posting at least once or twice a week, but sometimes I get 4 in. I don't use my blog exactly as a journal though, so I never post daily. I basically post when I feel I have something to say or share or get off my chest :-)
My readers are mostly people I don't know personally - most of my family members don't speak English (I'm originally from Italy) and it oddly makes it easier: sharing stuff with people who don't know you from Adam is easier, for some reason.
I have a giveaway going on right now, BTW: a Clarisonic Plus bundle (which may sound like a videogame, but it's actually a beauty tool :-))
I post a variety of things both serious /informative & funny /light. I leave each post on the front page for about 2 weeks.
Visitors come from Twitter (abt 50), Facebook (abt 32), StumbleUpon (abt 24), Google (abt 26), Blogger (52) and direct visits about 70 --- per week. (info from Google Analytics)
My blog has 3 parts to it; the first part is the actual stuff I blog about; the second part affiliate links & google ads; and the third part contains "FREE" services I offer to fellow mom bloggers & folks who make a living from the crafts they make!
I always follow other bloggers (from blogspot) in the Google reader and I always return the favor when people fave me on Technorati!!!
Our topics are focused on bringing valuable articles to new and expecting mothers.
Knowing how much information is out there for new and expecting mothers, I decided to research and create articles that would save time and provide resources for Mom's. We also work with other experts to bring in added content. It is also helps me to continuously learn as a mother of an 18 month old.
We add 3-4 solid articles per month.
I get some outside visitors to the blog and I have an opt-in newsletter that I email out to our customers with this content.
Hi, My blog is Toddler Craft. I chose to blog about Crafts and Activities for children because I really enjoy doing those things and do them everyday. I was always looking for inspiration online when I would run out of ideas, so I thought I would contribute my own!! I have been writing about 5 posts a week. I try to offer an activity or craft along with some explanation on other things you can do with that activity to enhance the learning experience. I haven't tracked my visitor count yet, I can see that I have had visitors though! Hoping to continue to increase that!
I have two personal blogs: Raising Daniel is dedicated to my precious son, who brings enormous joy in my life. I blog about him mostly, my experiences as a parent, random musings, etc. I also post photos and videos of our tot. I try to keep my posts informative to offer value to my readers.
My other blog is called Living Together, which is a conjugal blog that I share with my wonderful husband. We blog about everyday life as a married couple, our travels, [mis]adventures, things we like, etc. Like my baby blog, we also try to keep our posts informative (especially with regard to travel posts).
I try to blog once per week but I am hoping to improve on it despite my heavy schedule.
Yes I have plenty of visitors on all my blogs.
I/We love meeting new people and reading blog posts. If you wish to exchange links, please drop me a line. I would love to hear from mommies and other married couples (who also own a conjugal blog). Thanks!
My blog is http://lifeasme.typepad.com its a mix of all sorts because that is the most correct representation of myself! I do weekly featured guests, competitions and just waffle about my family and life.
In my head i post every day, in reality i post whenever i can! My visitors are not only friends and family but many, many people throughout the world...just gotta get some of them talking again now!! ;)
I'm a blog stalker and proud of it, i follow, comment and save nearly all the blogs i visit. and i wonder why my laptop is slow!!! lol
