Featured Blogger Friday

I'm very lucky to have met Lynette of My Wee View!

Actually, it was pure happenstance that I came across her site-I had read something about her site and decided to check it out.

Right away, the energy of her site caught my attention! Hopefully, it will catch yours too :D

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

My blog is called My Wee View.

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

My blog used to have another name (which I loved), but for legal reasons, had to change it. I wanted the new name to be close to the old name so people would still know it was me! I don't care as much for the new name - but it's cute - I guess. Wee View sounds like Review and Wee means tiny, so I guess it's a play on words. It's what I could come up with in a time crunch.

Q. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I wanted people to know about these wonderful WAHM diapers I had bought. I also thought it would be a fun release for me. Being a new mother, there is not too much time to get out and do things, so blogging was my way of reaching out to other people.

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?

My blog is a product review and giveaway blog. I write about family friendly products. I have received a few questions from PG 13 companies for reviews, but I think I still want to keep my blog G rated. Most of the products are baby related, but I know that Moms and Dads like to win things too, so I throw some fun things in there for parents too.

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

I love meeting wonderful people. So many wonderful people visit my blog everyday. Some I keep in contact with regularly and it is so nice to meet these people.

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

It is very demanding. It takes up a lot of my time. I spend my evenings responding to emails, writing reviews, and posting giveaways, and I rarely get much time to visit other peoples blogs. I wish I had more time.

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

Hum, I can wiggle just one toe - my 2nd one, without moving the other toes. Try it, it's really hard. The weird thing is, I can only do it on my right foot.

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

My Mother and Grandmother are my inspirations. They are both amazing and strong women. They have come over some huge obstacles in their lives and manage to stay positive and forward thinking. I don't know how my Mom does it, but she always takes the high road in every situation, and she has more patience and love to give to everyone than anyone I have ever met. People stop me on the street to tell me how lucky I am to have her as a Mother. Even if I become a 10th of what my Mother is - I will be a very successful Mom.

Q. Any advice for other bloggers?

Keep at it! Sometimes things can really feel low, but just keep plugging away. People will come and they will follow if you keep it coming. It may take time, but in the end - it's worth it.

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

I would love to be creative enough to have an Etsy store or enough time for another blog (but I'm not and I don't). However, you can catch up with My Wee View on Twitter @myweeview and on Facebook. Hope to see you all there.
