Featured Blogger Friday(1/7)-Sweep Tight

Featured Blogger Friday is back, brand spankin' new in the New Year and with some fresh new faces for you all!

{That's a lot of news, huh?}

Today, I bring you a fellow Illinoisan blogger who's been such a great friend to yours truly ^.^

Say hello to Jennifer of Sweep Tight {I absolutely LOVE that name!} and enjoy this great interview.

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

My name is Jennifer and my blog is Sweep Tight. I am 32 years old living in the Chicago area with my fiance and my dog. I am obsessed with entering sweepstakes, but I am also finding myself quite hooked on hosting my own giveaways on my blog now!

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

My mom actually came up with it. I was thinking sweepstakes...so, sleep tight...sweep tight...good night, sweep tight, and dream of winnings. I don't know. I am not in love with it.

Q. Why did you start b
logging?

Well, because of my sweepstaking hobby actually. Everyone would always ask me how I win so much, so I thought it would be a great way to share links with them. I had no clue what a blog even was. Once I got to know the blog world a little more, I feel in love with it. Now I do more product reviews and giveaways than anything else. So...it has changed.

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?

Sweepstakes, savings, coupons, deals, freebies, product reviews, giveaways, randomness...you just never know!

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

I think my engagement post is my favorite. http://www.sweeptight.com/2010/08/i-got-engaged-at-starved-rock/ :)

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

I really love picking winners to the giveaways! I know how I feel when I win something, so I love to be the one who gets to make someone else feel that way. I also cannot believe how many awesome people I have met through blogging. Kayla being one of them!

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

I just wish I had more time for it...or better time management. I seem to develop sudden ADD and it takes me forever to write one post because of it.

Q. What’s one random fact about you?

I am insanely obsessed with mail. Paranoid about it, even. I always think the mail man is out to get my freebies.

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

Family, friends, free stuff, cash...just bein' honest.

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