Featured Blogger Friday(2/26)-Second Time Around

Welcome to another Featured Blogger Friday where I bring you a new blogger each week!

That being said, since I started blogging, I've come to know many bloggers around the blogosphere and I've featured quite a few of those people, but I LOVE discovering new ones to share with you...Well new to me anyway ;)

Even though today's featured blogger is not new to the blogging world, she is fairly new to me and I'm thrilled to be able to share her with you!

Meet Rachel of Second Time Around.


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

My blog is called Second Time Around and I feature reviews and giveaways as well as ramble about my life.

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

I am starting to go through my "seconds", trying to have our 2nd baby, buying our 2nd house, and eventually go through my 2nd pregnancy, and 2nd child. This is even my 2nd blog! So I feel like I am in my Second phase of life!

Q. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging with a personal blog about my son (right after he was first born) and then I discovered blog giveaways. After awhile, I decided I wanted to start my own blog to do reviews/giveaways...and Second Time Around was born!

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 mostly write family friendly product reviews and giveaways and then I mostly ramble about my son and parenting advice (or asking for parenting advice).

Q. What is one must read post that you have written {Include Link}?

I don't know if it's a must read, but one of the most requested posts by readers was how my husband proposed: http://secondtimearound09.blogspot.com/2010/02/you-asked-for-it-my-proposal-story.html. I also have a bunch of great reviews and giveaways going on right now such as DownEast, Adorable Kinders, Vat19, Seventh Generation, etc.

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

I love being able to connect with so many different and wonderful people all in one place!

Q. Name one thing you’re not quite fond of about your blogging job.

Not having enough time to do all I want to do! I wish I didn't need sleep!

Q. What’s one random fact about you?

I LOVE going grocery shopping (I know a lot of people who hate it, but I look forward to my grocery shopping trips)

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

My son, husband, and family are my inspirations! They make me who I am today! Other bloggers also inspire me in the blogging world!

Q. Where else can we find you(Personal Website, Etsy Shop, Twitter, Facebook, Etc.)?

You can also find me on Twitter: @tobinsmommy08 and on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Second-Time-Around/256397876183

I think it's awesome that you do featured bloggers. I love finding new blogs to follow. I think it's becoming a mild addiction :)

Who made your Featured Blogger Friday Banner? I love it! I tried to make my own for Spotlight Saturday and it didn't turn out half that nice.

So nice to meet you Rachel and learn more about you! I loved your engagement story (left a comment over on your blog). I so agree with you about wishing you didn't need sleep. There is never enough time in the day to visit all the good blogs... I am now following you on Twitter.
Have a great week.
