Featured Blogger Friday-Mama's Money Savers

Happy Friday Everyone! And you know what Friday means...Another featured blogger! I love featuring bloggers because it's just SO much fun to hear their stories :D

This Friday, we are learning a little more about Cher of Mama's Money Savers. I just recently met Cher when she contacted me about advertising some contests of hers on my blog. With further communication, I realized she is somewhat of a neighbor! Only about an hour or two away(which is exciting)!!

So, I got to meet someone new and so do you today!

Q. What's your name and your blog? What other information would you like to share?

Cher from Mama's Money Savers

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

I was actually clueless as to what to name my blog. I rambled off some of my favorite mom blog names and my husband actually came up with the name!

Q. Why did you start blogging?

I admit I used to think blogging was stupid, because I honestly thought it was just a bunch of online diaries. Then I started coming across these awesome websites that offered reviews, giveaways, deals, and personal stories and I realized that blogging is really whatever you want it to be! I started reading and blogging in August 2008 to have something to myself. I have two small children and my blog is really the only thing that I can call my own, and not have to share!

Q. 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 cover everything! I started out featuring online deals, freebies, samples, survey companies to check out, but lately I have turned towards product reviews and giveaways. I don't do either on weekends usually and I am working to create a better balance of everything so stay tuned!

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

I honestly love all the products I get to review and share with my readers!

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

I really love it all and since I am becoming a much better and more efficient writer I am spending less time on my blog. I do though hate when I get backed up with reviews and posts and I have to take time away from my family to finish up - but that is really because I get lazy and waste time!

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

Throughout high school I had my hair dyed every color of the rainbow and I currently have 4 tattoos! (Butterfly, dragonfly, tribal heart, and shooting star)

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

I am inspired by how fortunate I am. I have two healthy sons, myself and my husband are both healthy and in love, we have great network of family and friends, and we have a house and all the awesome goodies inside!

Q. Any advice for other bloggers?

Keep it up! Network with other bloggers by leaving comments and emailing them. Stay organized and take a deep breathe when you get overwhelmed!

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

Twitter: Mama's Money
Facebook: Mama's Money Savers

Love and Energies.
