Blogging Pays Off & More with SocialMoms

Ever considered blogging?  It doesn't take much to get started other than a desire to write about something you are interested in.  You have to decide what it is you want to tell everyone about.  Whether it's about being healthy, chronic medical conditions, saving money or whatever hobby you have, it's so easy to start.  When I started blogging, it was just to share information on trying to stay younger looking which quickly evolved into product reviews and giveaways.  I still like to share information but find that I'm not doing it as much as I would like to and saw that my blog turned more into a product review and giveaway site.  I'm not complaining as I have greatly benefited from this aspect of blogging as well as my readers.  Not only have I benefited but so have the businesses that participate and partner with bloggers.  Since blogging, I have found so many new products that I have become loyal to.

Social Moms: the influential moms network

These brands get free advertising from me as I post about the products I love more than once.  I become a brand ambassador, so to speak, unpaid.  When I find a brand I believe in, I like to tell others so it's a win-win situation.  With blogging, comes opportunities such as the ones that SocialMoms (formerly known as TwitterMoms) provides.  I just went to Target yesterday and racked up a $154 bill and paid only $32 for it thanks to the use of three gift cards I won from participating in various blogger programs.  Today, I just received a $50 Sears card and I'm still holding a $50 Staples card (a giveaway ongoing right now here) and a $50 Hasbro card.  I forgot that I also have a $100 Tiny Prints card to use as well.  Many times, I pass the prize on to my readers in an effort to pay it forward and hopefully it lands in the hands of someone who needs it more than I.

If you thought about blogging, give it a try, it doesn't take much and great mom places like SocialMoms is a wonderful way to engage other moms and learn a lot about different topics and products.

*Update: I just used my $50 Sears card and purchased four pairs of Levis for my seven year old and a nightgown for me and only paid 83 cents out of pocket.
