Want To Know Wednesday: Seventeen Sirens!


Welcome to Week 4 of "Want To Know Wednesday"! Each week, I will shine the spotlight on a business or blog! It will cover the basic 5 W's and 1 H! Let's get to know Seventeen Sirens!

WHO is the person behind the blog? "My name is Aly. I'm 19 years old. I’m married and have a beautiful baby boy. I currently live in Michigan, and I attend school part-time. I enjoy spending time with my son, blogging, reading & writing, listening to music, cooking, saving money using coupons, and having a good time."

WHAT is the focus of your blog? "I'm a mommy blogger and the main focus is product reviews, giveaways, and parenting."

WHEN did you start your blog and/or how much time do you devote to it? "I started blogging in April of 2011 just a month before I had Squishy. I didn't post as often because I was tired all the time. I didn't really "start" blogging until around August, when I branched out from Blogger and purchased my own self-hosted domain.

I go to school part time, so I try to blog and get as much as I can done during my lunch break. Otherwise, I blog whenever Squishy is napping, which is about 3-4 times a day. I get a few posts scheduled a day when I have a tight agenda and posts are due. When I don't have many to finish I get about 1 post complete and try to spend time networking. I usually go to sleep around 1am."

WHERE do you blog? "I currently live in Dearborn, Michigan and I blog from my basement." :)

WHY did you start your blog? "I first started reading other mom blogs and read a lot of product reviews and entered a lot of giveaways. I decided to start my blog a month later, as a way of documenting my life as a new mom. A few months later I began reviewing products and hosting giveaways for my readers. I didn't really plan anything, I guess things just fell into place. I'm excited to see what the New Year will bring in regards to my blog."
