In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have? I’m a Child Safety Specialist for Child Protective Services in Texas. I’ve worked for CPS for 8+ years and most of that was working with families to reunite them in one way or another. 3. Why did you start your blog? I learned about blogs as a business when I began watching Extreme Couponing in April 2011. I started reading coupon blogs and then discovered giveaways. I’ve always been told that I should write so I decided to start a “random” blog about my life. I didn’t expect it to be a business, but I thought it looked fun for a part time hobby.
Your name: Stefani Tolson Your Twitter name: @mommye Your blog: Mom’s Blog @ Mommy Enterprises What year did you start blogging? I started blogging in 2004. In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have? I don’t work outside the home, but I do have a ton of jobs at home. I LOVE to cook so I am always in the kitchen making some type of dish for the family. I own a network of websites and blogs so when I am not spending time with the family I’m working on my computer. Why did you start your blog? I actually started my blog on Mommy Enterprises as a way to keep track of my daughter’s first moments because I wasn’t too good at keeping up on my kid’s baby books. I loved the concept of blogging and have since became a full time blogger who owns multiple blogs.

Our Mom Central VIP:  Kailani Okamoto Your kids: Kacie (10), Kiana (6), Kaila (2) Your twitter name: @Kailani Your blog: An Island Life What year did you start blogging? 2006 In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have? I work full-time as a flight attendant. I love my job and all the experiences it’s brought to my life. It’s also a great way to get a little “me” time while on layovers. I always joke that I have to go to work to have a vacation. Why did you start your blog? It started when I wanted a free app download for my smartphone. The company wanted me to blog a review in exchange but I had no idea what a blog was. With the help of an online friend, I started my first Blogspot blog with no intention of continuing. But one reader led to another and here I am six years later!

Twitter: @amomstake Your blog url: amomstake.com What year did you start blogging? I started a family blog back in May 2006, but I only posted occasionally when I had family and life updates to share. I enjoyed blogging, but never felt like I had too interesting of a life to share. I started A Mom’s Take on April 1, 2010 (no joke!) and have blogged consistently ever since! I enjoy blogging and often consider it my “me” time! In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have? My full-time job includes the laundry, dishes, diapers, and cleaning up toys… oh, wait, that falls under being a mother!

I have the privilege to be a stay-at-home mom (for now) which I love. I volunteer weekly in my son’s classroom and recently became a co-classroom coordinator. What advice do you have for those starting out? Be patient. It takes time to build your following. Be sure you visit and comment on the blogs you enjoy. I have met some of my best blogging friends commenting on their blogs and the conversations that were started through them.
Our Mom Central VIP: Shauna Kids: Little Man – 5, Little Miss – 3, Baby Miss - 1 Blog URL: http://adventuresof8.com/ Twitter: @adventuresof8 What year did you start blogging?

Our Mom Central VIP: Leah Kanaan Kids: Zachary (7, almost 8) and Isabella (5) Blog URL: www.goddessinthehouse.com Twitter: @DGoddess What year did you start blogging? I started blogging in 2008.   In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have? Right now, aside from blogging and raising my kids, I have the privilege of being a stay at home Mom which allows me the time to work on my blog, clean the house (though I am not as thrilled about that aspect), and be active in my children’s classes.   Why did you start your blog? I originally started my blog because a friend told me I had a lot of good tips and should start a tip website. However, to be honest, that became boring real quick. So I started writing about my family and somehow I fell in to doing product reviews (which I love!). And the rest is history!
Our Mom Central VIP: Kasandria (Kas) Reasoner Kids: Isabella 7 and Gabriel 10 Your Blog URL: http://www.southernbellaswaystosave.com Twitter: @waystosave What year did you start blogging? March of 2009 In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have? Mother, wife and blogger. That’s it and it keeps my plate pretty full. Why did you start your blog? I used to sell things on eBay and dabble in graphic design on the side. Someone asked me to make her a blog header. I went over to her blog and thought hey I can do that. So I started my little blog with the idea of showcasing how I have saved and earned money and it just went from there. What advice do you have for those starting out?
Our Mom Central VIP: Kenda Smith Kids: two boys (teen and a toddler) Your blog URL: consumerconversation.com Twitter: @KendaSmith What year did you start blogging? I first started publicly blogging in 2008. It wasn’t until 2010 that I realized I could make a difference by connecting quality brands with consumers. From that point on I was hooked. Why did you start your blog? 
At first it was just a hobby. I’ve always loved to write and using a website was just a natural progression from the many paper journals I filled. I tried the concept of writing about my kids and it just didn’t flow; I struggled. Then I was approached by a brand to review their product. I received so much positive feedback from both readers and the sponsor that I knew I’d found my niche. From that point on I decided it would be my passion and my career.
Our Mom Central VIP: Leslie Mayorga Kids: Jessica (26), Sarah (21), Justice (My Grandson, 2 ½) Your Blog URL: http://www.leslielovesveggies.net/ Twitter: @LeslieVeg What year did you start blogging? I started Leslie Loves Veggies on Valentine’s Day 2009, but I began blogging a few months before that. In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have? I am a Registered Nurse and Sign Language Interpreter for the DEAF. Why did you start your blog? I started Leslie Loves Veggies after entering giveaways for a few months. I know it sounds crazy, but after seeing and entering and winning like a banshee I thought to myself “I can do this!” I learned ‘the ropes’ by being a giveaway entrant before being the Giveaway Lady!
Our Mom Central VIP: Amy Kronstedt Kids: Andrew – 3, Ethan -1 Your Blog URL: http://www.grinningcheektocheek.com Twitter: @GrinCheek2Cheek What year did you start blogging? I started blogging at GrinningCheektoCheek.com in October 2010 but had blogged privately before that.
Our Mom Central VIP: Brandy Kids: Morgan, who is my teenager. She’s 13! Lauren is 7 and Emma is 5! Your Blog URL: http://notsoaveragemama.com Twitter: @stitchblade What year did you start blogging? It was either late 2003 or early 2004. I’m a bit too senile to think back that far. I had several blogs I started and dropped before finding myself where I am now. My current blog was started in 2007. In addition to blogging and being a mother, what other jobs do you have?   I am a retired Tattoo Artist and Body Piercer. I also work as a photographer. Why did you start your blog?   Well, I moved to Texas 9 years ago. None of my family lives here and I felt very lonely. Blogging helped me feel connected somehow. I have made some great friends through blogging!

I am also a full-time student going back to school to get my Certificate in Paralegal Studies. I am a single Mom of 3 boys. Why did you start your blog?

What advice do you have for those starting out?

I also currently do a lot of consulting for brands. Why did you start your blog? I have a passion for helping people. Especially when it comes to saving money. I started my blog as a ministry.

I am the office manager for my dad’s insurance office. Why did you start your blog? I was searching how to make boutique hair bows when I stumbled across a tutorial on a mommy blog.

If you want to be successful, you have to think of your blog as a business and not a scrapbook.
