Hi! If you are new to my blog, Welcome, if you are an everyday reader, Thanks!
My name is Cher and I am a SAHM of two boys, Aidan (4) and Gavin (2.5) with a girl due in July. We live in a western suburb of Chicago and I hope to never move again! My kids are at the age where they fight a lot and drive me crazy, but they also love to cuddle and give kisses! My wonderful husband works hard and goes to graduate school.
I started blogging in August 2008 because I was sick of repeating my coupon deals and other ways of making money to my friends and family. So I started my blog and told them to read it to see ways to save money and make money. Before I started my blog, I honestly thought they were dumb as I thought they were all online journals about personal problems. Boy was I wrong! Some of my favorite websites back then I soon realized were actually blogs! So I started out on Google Blogger and within a few days I was up and running. So in the beginning I posted deals and coupons and survey sites I used, hence the name Mama’s Money Savers. Then around August 2009 I started to really get into product reviews and giveaways. Soon I was doing at least one everyday. I have done reviews on so many different products and websites that I couldn’t even list them all if I tried!
Last month I decided on a whim to finally change my name to “Mom and More” since I am barely focused on coupons and deals and I wanted to have a name that I can grow with. I picked the name kinda out of no where, but was thinking how I am a “Mom, daughter, sister, wife, friend, cousin and so on…”
I hope to share as much as I can with my blog. I have definitely come a long way in the blogging world since I started and I have worked with so many amazing companies and made some great friends through blogging. I am by no means an expert but I do like to try out new things hence my numerous design changes, blogspot to .com to wordpress site, and my other daily changes!
Have a blog and looking to make extra money? Here is a post I did on sites I use to make extra money!
ABOUT THE ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY:
Okay so I am always looking to meet new bloggers and just communicate better with the bloggers I already read. (I read tons of blogs but I am awful at commenting on them!) I also love ‘chatting’ with my readers.
Well now there is a party going on from April 1st-8th, that is all about blogging, both for bloggers and readers. What happens is all the bloggers sign up on a McKlinky showcasing a post introducing themselves and mentioning their social media links. Oh did I forget to mention there will be prizes! You can check out the prizes HERE. (I am giving away a $25 Amazon gift card over there!)
Both bloggers and non-bloggers just need to comment on the 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party Post 2011. Prizes will awarded by a random draw done by the 5 Minutes for Mom founders. There will also be giveaways going on separately on many of the party blogs – including mine!
Here are my links:
