I am a 40-something-year-old stay-at-home mom with a 15-year-old boy, a 14-year-old boy, and a 11-year-old girl.
Anyways, I do have a college degree (B.S. in Operations Management) but with three small kids I decided to stay at home for now. I started blogging in August 2008. Before then I hadn’t even really read a blog, I honestly thought they were dumb. I thought they were all personal diaries out in cyberspace for strangers to read, and I had enough problems of my own to worry about. Then I started frequenting websites that I soon found out were actually blogs. So one night out of the blue I created a blogger blog and set forth. I named my blog “Mama’s Money Savers” (my husband’s idea) because I wanted to share deals, coupons, and ways to make and save money. I used to be so good at those things and then after my second son started to become mobile, I started slipping. I still do all those things, but I am just getting back into the game.
Then in August 2009, I started really picking up on product reviews and giveaways and they took over my blog. I couldn’t turn any down and I really wanted to help others make educated purchases at reasonable prices. I do really love product reviews, not just because I usually get to keep whatever I review, but because there are so many great products out there that are unknown. I also love to host giveaways because who doesn’t love to win something!
So here is my blog, still working on a niche but always blogging about something!
