Each week at the Newbie Blog Hop, we choose a Featured Newbie to interview and get to know a little better. Our Newbie group is growing so fast and I love meeting everyone and discover new blogs.
Let's go meet another!!
Meet Mistee from Giveaways and Glitter
Tell me a little bit about yourself and your family.
Do you have more than one blog? If so, tell me about them! How long have you been blogging? Why did you start blogging? Is this also why you continue blogging?
Who does your blog appeal to? Is this who you thought would be your target audience? What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
I've never really thought about who would read my blog or who my target audience would be. Or even where my blog is heading. I just take it one day at a time.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
The biggest challenge I have had so far is just keeping up with it. I homeschool, so it is hard to find enough hours in the day to do schoolwork,, spend time with family, cook, clean, and blog. Plus I also like to read, watch TV, swim, play softball, and bake and I am the biggest sport fanatic!! So there just is never enough time in the day.
What do you love about blogging?
I love blogging because it makes me feel useful, productive, and like I am helping other people.
What do you NOT love about blogging?
What types of product reviews and giveaways do you feature?
What was your favorite product to review?
What advice do you have for those wanting to get into this or up the value of their giveaways?
Besides your blog, how else can people find you? Which method is your favorite/least favorite?
Share your top 3 favorite posts from your blog.
I don't have any favorite posts right now. I'm still learning. I hope to do more in depth posts later on about subjects that are close to my heart. Such as special needs children, education, and civil rights.
Share your top 3 favorite blogs to read and why.
My top 3 Favorite Blogs to read are GoingCrazy!!WannaGo??!!, The Jolly Blogger, and The Kids Are Grown, Now What? and I have to cheat and add a fourth. Life's Cheap Thrills. I love these blogs because these are 4 of the nicest, most helpful bloggers you will ever come across. And I consider them all to be mentors, as well.
Do you have a weekly, daily, or monthly Blog Hop or Meme that people should join in? Tell me about it and share an info link.
I do have 2 weekly memes that are just fun list-type things. '10 on Tuesday' and '5 on Friday'.
How do you find time to blog?
What is your best advice for a Newbie Blogger?
I would tell other newbie bloggers that they really need to be sure that this is what they want. It's a lot harder than it looks. It takes a lot of time. And it can be stressful if you let it be. Remember, it's supposed to be fun. If mistakes are made, mistakes are made. You won't be the first or the last person to forget to spellcheck your post and a commenter let's you know that you spelled 'weiner' instead of 'winner'. (How do they really know I didn't mean weiner?)
Mistee really is quite hilarious!! Thanks for making me smile today…and every day!!
