FBF-Outnumbered 3 to 1

I started thinking about a week ago that I feature Etsy shops, so why can't I feature bloggers? They contribute a great deal to the shopping world by featuring, reviewing, and giving away goods that draws attention to particular products and companies, thus, us as shoppers go out and purchase because we see a great review.

They do just as much and I would love to help them just like I do different shops and companies.

So I have dedicated Friday as Feature Blogger Friday!

And our first lucky blogger today is a good friend of mine that has been with me since I started blogging back in March.

Some of you probably know her, but for those who don't, meet Melissa of Outnumbered 3 to 1 and Shimmer Me Blue.

1. What's your name and your blog? Is there any other information would you like to share?

I'm Melissa and I blog at Outnumbered 3 to 1. I'm a mother of 2 amazing boys, girlfriend to the greatest guy and I love to blog and make jewelry in my spare time.

2. Why did you choose that name for your blog?

I chose Outnumbered 3 to 1 because I am outnumbered in a house full of 3 boys, and I wanted something original that I haven't seen before

3. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging at ShimmerMeBlue in December of last year to help promote my handmade jewelry and my Etsy shop. I soon joined quite a few different forums and learned about reviews and giveaways. This really interested me, so I tried it out and I was hooked. I love to try new stuff and i love to write, so this was perfect for me.

4. What kind of stuff do you cover with your blog? Is there a specific genre you write about or is the sky the limit?

I write about parenting, everyday life, random ramblings, join in on fun weekly memes and great products reviews and giveaways.

5. Name one thing that you love about your blogging job.

I just love connecting with people and sharing my thoughts and feelings with others. I have met some wonderful people since I started blogging, people that I would definitely call my friends.

6. Name one thing your not so fond of about your blogging job.

I don't know a whole lot about all of the technical stuff, and sometimes that really frustrates me. It can get really annoying if I'm trying to figure something out and it's just not working the way I want it to.

7. What's one random fun fact about you?

I'm like a big kid. I love to have fun, play with the kids, whatever.

8. Inspiration comes in many forms for different people. What inspires you?

My kids and boyfriend for starters; and just seeing something, like an object or whatever and thinking of what I can do with it.

9. Any advice for other bloggers?

Don't get sucked in and think that you have to be better than the others because it will just tear at you, and blogging is supposed to be a fun outlet. Also visit other blogs. No one will want to keep coming to yours if you don't take the time to see what they have to say.

10. Where else can we find you(Etsy shop, other blog, twitter, facebook, etc)?

You can find me:

So go ahead and check out Melissa's blog(s)! I can tell you from personal experience she is an amazing person and a great blogger =]

Until next time.
Love and Energies.
