Where do you blog? Eco Baby Mama Drama
How did you decide on what to name your blog? I knew I wanted something with “eco” and “baby” because my focus when I started was baby products as I was a new mom again. My best friend actually came up with the name and it made me laugh, so I ran with it!

When and why did you start blogging? I started my own blog in April after being a contributor on another blog for quite awhile. I wanted to expand the things I was able to write about, and what better way to do that than to start my own blog and have full control of the topics?
What do you blog about? Pretty much anything that is family-friendly. I love environmentally friendly products for reviews especially.
What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it? My immediate family thinks it is great and support me a lot. My extended family doesn’t really get it. My thirteen-year-old follows me and reads every post (he is an email subscriber!), and my husband proofreads for me sometimes. But my extended family doesn’t really follow me.
When do you find the time to blog? I get about a thirty-minute window daily between naptime starting and my oldest arriving home from school, so finding time is a challenge.
What is your favorite blog post ever? Probably this one. It is the update to a five-part series in which I shared my youngest’s struggle with c-diff.
What has been your biggest blogging challenge? I struggle with every post. I am a very insecure writer and never know if my posts are too long, too short, or just not interesting. I am also very tech-challenged, so simply watermarking a picture is difficult for me.
What advice would you give a new blogger? Network and make other blogging friends. They are invaluable.
What widget or feature could you not live without? Since I am tech-challenged, I don’t really use a lot of widgets honestly.
What are your favorite blogs to read? I used to read tons of blogs, but I rarely am able to now as any free time I have I spend working on my own blog!
