Now that I've got my Chai Tea Latte in hand, I can't wait to sit down and introduce you to this week's blogger. Please welcome Julie from The Naptime Review to the "More Than Mommies" circle of friends:
Hi, Julie! Thanks for taking some time with us today. What do you have in your cup this morning?
Coffee. I have to drink coffee every morning to survive.
Well, now that you have that first cup underway, introduce your self to our readers:
I'm Julie from Naptime Review. Mom of two beautiful girls.
We love to hear the story behind blog names--so what is the reason for yours:
Really Nap Time is my only time to work or get on the computer. I also loved shopping and finding new products while the kids napped so Naptime Review just fit!
I am really sad that it seems like nap time is slowly going away for my youngest. Some days she doesn't take one. It's a sad day for this mommy, who also uses every second of that time to get things done! So I can really relate to your blog name. We are going to ask our readers to head over for a visit-- we promise they won't wake up your little one ;) --Tell us what you'd like us to see when we stop over:
My daughter and my grandmother were inspiration for this post (a post about naming my daughter). Writing this post helped me be happy instead of sad on my daughter's birthday. I also think this post helped bring joy to some family members who are morning and sad.
Right now we see your blog as a place to be introduced to family friendly products. We love that you share things that would make our life as moms a little easier or more enjoyable. We love that so many of your reviews include pictures of your family enjoying the products. We can tell that you are honest and committed to sharing the best with your readers. We also love that you want to connect other bloggers--you have some popular link ups that really give others a chance to find each other and become more successful in the blog world. Is this how you envisioned your blog being when you started? Where do you see your blog going and growing to in the future?
No, I really knew nothing about blogging when I started. I get satisfaction from helping people and sharing things with others so it just evolved that way! When I first started blogging, I said I wasn't even going to post pictures of my kid’s well I feel in love with so many other moms and their pictures, I decided to post more. My favorite posts are actually about my children. As for the future of my blog, I am just taking it day by day! I would like to have a large following one day and I would like to reach 100,000 page views a month! I am driven by numbers!
Finally, what makes you "More than a Mommy"?
I love working out and spending time with my friends! I also enjoy scrapbooking but I am scrapping my children so that doesn't count does it?
If you love to do it, then YES it counts! Thank you so much for spending some time with us today, Julie!
