Want to Know Wednesday: Pretty Opinionated


Welcome to Week 6 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 Pretty Opinionated!


WHO is the person behind the blog? "I am a work-at-home mom, freelance writer, and owner/author of Pretty Opinionated. I have a six-year-old son who loves to play video games, mostly because I forced them on him when he was three because I love to play them. I've created a monster! I'm really horrible about these "who are you" things, because I always wonder how much info is too much. Like, should I tell you all that I can't sleep comfortably unless I'm wearing knee-socks to bed? Well, I just did. I'll spare you any other creepy details though!"

WHAT is the focus of your blog? "Pretty Opinionated is primarily a review blog that focuses on books and products for women and school-age kids. I've loosened up a lot in the last year, and now it includes other fun stuff, like Pinterest finds (I'm kind of hooked on that now) and random what-nots. It's still mostly reviews though."

WHEN did you start your blog and/or how much time do you devote to it? "I started Pretty Opinionated in Jan 2011, and only posted a couple of times a week. Now, I post at least once a day, sometimes a few more times. I schedule my posts ahead of time when I can. When I'm a very good girl, I have stuff scheduled two weeks to a month in advance. When I'm a slacker, like during the holidays, I'm writing them at midnight the night before."

WHERE do you blog? "I work out of my house in the Poconos, Pennsylvania. I have an African Grey parrot that stares at me all day as I type. He thinks he's my boyfriend."

WHY did you start your blog? "I love writing, and was really tired of writing for other people in a style that I didn't really prefer. I figured if I started my own blog, I could write what I wanted to write and eventually grow it to the point that all of my writing is for myself. For now, I still have to supplement my income significantly with freelancing, but things are definitely on an upswing. I also love sharing my opinions on stuff, which is why I started a review blog."

HOW can people interested in learning more connect with you? In addition to my blog, readers can find me on Facebook and Twitter.
