After taking a couple of weeks off, we’re back with an amazing Blogger of the Week. Say hello to Mama Dweeb!
I am a lifelong Kansas gal, married to my first love. I stay at home with the inspiration for my blog – my 3.5 yr old daughter Lizzie and 10 month old son David. We also have a dog, a cat and 3 goats on our 20 acres. I have always loved to write and build relationships and my blog has provided a way for me to do both of those things at the same time!
How did you become a review blogger?
I started out just bragging about the thing I love to use on my blog – like my favorite baby carrier. I had no idea that you could get those things to review until I started reading other blogs like “Happily Domestic” and “Take Time to Smell the Rose.” After I learned about what they did I made that my goal. I wanted to help support my family by reviewing items we would normally buy. One small review led to one bigger one and all the while I was continually making more friends as well.
I would review an HD Kodak video camera because I could use it to improve my blog’s video reviews. I would love to take even more high quality videos for the reviews I do because I feel like that sets me apart from other reviewers.
I see that you’re a cloth diapering Mama. What do you feel are some the benefits over disposables?
To put it shortly, money savings, environmental benefits, better leak protection, healthier for the baby and just overall cuter! Granted, if you go crazy with cloth diapers you can spend some serious cash and the money savings doesn’t appear unless you re use the diapers for 5 kids, but you can save money if you do right! And leak protection – my babies have only blown out with explosive poop in their cloth diapers a couple times, and that was user error, I didn’t put a cover on them. It never fails that if they are in disposables the poop comes right out and their clothes are horribly soiled. And let’s face it – a paper diaper just isn’t photogenic. But there are some seriously cute cloth diapers out there!
Thank you so much! So far my boy is only 10 months old, but I can already tell some major differences between him and my daughter. For one, boys are just more rough and tumble. He likes more physical play and less cuddling time than my daughter. When Lizzie was this age she was always asking to be held and would only sleep if we were there with her. David, however, loves to cuddle but not nearly as much as she did. This could be just a difference between children too. I look forward to how different they are when they get a lot older!
