I started blogging in June to share w/my friends and family opinions on different products I use--mainly eco-friendly, organic products--a lot of which are hard to find in Hawaii. I post at least 3-5x a week, and I get visitors, but not as much as some of the more experienced mommy bloggers.
I'm starting to feature organic, eco-friendly companies who are also providing discounts--a big plus for a lot of us in Hawaii because our options are limited in terms of eco-friendly products and companies.
If anyone has any sage and savvy product they know of that I should check out, please let me know!
I'm a mom, but I wouldn't say the blog is about my boys. It's alllllllll about ME...the boys just have supporting roles. ;-D
I have been trying to blog every day...and so far it has been going well! I don't have tooooo much traffic....around 25-30 visits a day. I am hoping that will go up a bit and I am using the Blog of Dreams philosophy of " If you blog it, they will come...."
Cool Baby Kid finds the coolest produts and resources for moms, babies and kids. I began the blog because I'm notorius for researching the heck out of EVERYTHING I buy, so friends would often just ask me for product ideas. It's turned into a major/hobby/obsession/part-time job, but I love it!
My blog is The Creative Junkie. It's a compilation of humorous stories and observations of my life as a SAHM.
* Why you chose that topic to blog about I have to blog about what I know and ... that's what I know!
* How many posts you write a week I typically post on Mon, Wed & Fri but my goal is to post every day ... I just need to find 10 more hours in every day.
* Do you get visitors to your blog (besides family and friends) I do and I am so grateful for that. When I started blogging, I didn't know if ANYONE would care about what I have to say and when I hear that someone is actually looking forward to my posts, it just totally makes my day, if not my week!
* Any other info you wish to share about your blog I have my own style of writing - I like it to be very casual, laid back. I may not always use the right grammar, I may have run-on sentences, I may start a lot of sentences with "And" or "Because." I want my blog to "sound" like me and I don't always use perfect grammar when I speak.
I started blogging because I had to... but it quickly became an addiction! I'm a news anchor, and when I went on maternity leave I was encouraged to start a blog so viewers could check in with me. I've since stopped blogging on the station's website and moved to one of my own, and stopped blogging only about my baby (although I still blog a LOT about my baby!). I also do some behind-the-sceens blogging about the newsroom, and whatever else strikes my fancy.
I post just about every day. I do get visitors, and I am so appreciative of them all. I'm definitely looking for ways to grow!
After starting my design business I only thought it would be appropriate to start a blog along with it. On my blog I offer free scrapbooking design stuff and a monthly desktop calendar along with updates on my new items and such.
I currently have about 100 visits a day but no REAL business just yet! :( I'm still doing my part by getting the word out about my website design as well as blog design. If you know of someone in need of either please send them my way! :)
I think blogging offers a great route for people starting a business because there are so many resources available to get your blog "out there". Then once people come to your blog then they come to your site and so forth. (I know alot of us aren't actually in "business" but thought for the few of us who are I would throw that in.)
Here's the info,
We are at http://bluemonkeybutt.com
We're still trying to decide what our blog is. It's a comination of random things and our families. We're trying to do at least 5 posts a week. Our traffic is a mix of family/friends and people we don't know.
I just love to write. I have been blogging for a while and then I wanted to write about our new crafts and other handcrafted items I have found so I started The Wonderful World of handcrafted at http://gwynnsgifts.blogspot.com/
Everyone once in a while I like to write about my life because so much fun things are going on and my kids are just funny. My blog is all upbeat and positive. I try to post at least 4 times a week and everyday if I can. I have no idea who visits my blog but people sure do because the numbers keep growing. Blogging seems to feed my soul to share with the world.
I write for ParentsCanada.com and the blog specifically is called ParentTalk Blog. While I do get paid as the online editor, all my posts are written by me and me alone. I blog about mom (and dad) entrepreneurs -- if you are one, please post or email me as I'd love to interview you; parenting issues; my own kids and family; freelance writing; book reviews; sleep issues; traveling; feeding; discipline; school...you know, all the stuff that parents need to know.
