Heather Mahan Product Reviewer Mommy of 1 And Counting An Interview
Heather has been blogging since June of this year, yet with hard work and a lot of determination she regularly writes product reviews including giveaways on her blog.
Tell me about your Blog?
My blog, Mommy Of 1 and Counting, is mostly aimed towards parents of toddlers and young children. I love to review products for that genre. As I like to save money, I do a lot of children reviews and giveaways. I like my stuff to be aimed at parents as well as women as I try to also do fashion related stuff! I like to blog about my life too so It’s really aimed at bloggers in general! I try to find something to blog about that everyone will like.
What was your first blog?
Mommy Of 1 and Counting is my first and Hopefully my last!
How did you get started blogging?
I started blogging because I enter Giveaways. Since blogging about certain ones earns you an extra entry I opened my blog and started it. Then I realized it is a place that I can escape too, tell other mommies and bloggers about my life and they actually LISTEN! It’s awesome! I will do this for a LONG time and Will definitely keep up with it!
What is the biggest tip you would give to product reviewers?
Try, Try, Try! It’s hard to get a company to sponsor you, but the worst they can do is say NO or not even get back to you. Just keep trying and don’t give up!
Are you contacted by advertisers or do you contact them or both?
I contact them. My blog isn’t huge yet. However, now that it’s a Google page rank of 1 I’m hoping I start getting contacted. Right now it’s a lot of work trying to get companies to sponsor me, and I send at least 20 e-mails a day!
How do you find contacts to email about doing reviews?
I usually do a Google search for items I’m interested in “Candles” “Natural Soaps” “Children’s Clothing” It works. Or If I’m interested in an exact product I’ll go to the website and contact them directly!
What is your favorite product that you have reviewed?
So far it’s the Strider Running Bike as well as Lush stuff! AMAZING!
How do you write your reviews?
I really write them different every time, but I like to include Pictures and I love to include the Price. I also include the link to the website and usually include the Direct link to the item I reviewed!
Are you a member of any forums?
What is one thing about you that not many people know?
A lot actually!! I can touch my nose with my tongue… I had my daughter when I was just 16.
What’s your favorite book?
ANYTHING by Nicholas Sparks!
What is on your iPod?
Don’t even own one (Sad isn’t it?)
What are your contact details?
What events do you attend?

How do you prefer to communicate?
What is one thing people can do for you?
