Tell me about your Blog –
The mission of Coupon Clippin’ Mommy is to Save my readers time and money with some of the best deals around and to Share great products with them through reviews and giveaways.
What was your first blog?
I have a personal blog I started when my son was a few months old. This is a great way for my family to keep up with the kids.
What is the biggest tip you would give to product reviewers?
Ask. If you don’t ask about the possibility of a review you will never know.
Are you contacted by companies or PR companies or do you contact them or both?
I did my first 2 review/giveaways on my own and then was contacted by several PR companies to do reviews for them. Recently it has been a mix of both them contacting me and me contacting them. I also find review opportunities at The Product Review Place and Mom Made That.
What is your favorite product that you have reviewed?
I love my Flirty Apron and Carolina Pad products!
What do companies or PR companies do that you wish they wouldn’t/ do that you like?
I’m sure they get lots of emails but sometimes I don’t get any response at all and I never know if that’s because they didn’t get the email or what. For the most part when you work with some of them they will come back to you later on to work on another campaign.
What do bloggers do that you wish they wouldn’t/do that you like?
I’m not very big on lots of drama. I like when we can all help each other out and support each other.
What advertiser would you like to work with given a chance?
Where do you see growth in the blogging field?
There are lots of people out there and lots of companies. I see more and more companies utilizing social media and bloggers to share about their products.
What is one thing about you that not many people know?
I have an identical twin sister!
What’s your favorite book?
Shop, Save and Share by Ellie Kay
What is on your iPod?
A little bit of everything. I need some new songs to motivate me when I’m out running. Any ideas?
