PR is becoming a bigger and bigger interest to those in the blogging world. Mom blogger’s voices and opinions are extremely important to companies who want us to get out there and promote their products. This is often done in exchange for a variety of different things, including: free products, payment for ad placement and even financing and sponsorship for blogging events. This gives us the opportunity to build connections and ongoing relationships on both a personal and business level.
Tara from www.FeelsLikeHome.com has partnered up with Adrienne from www.AdriennesHouse.com and they put out a request asking for anyone interested to join them for what is called the “Spotlight on PR”. It is a program for those of us bloggers interested in working with PR Professionals and using this opportunity to expand our networks. We were asked to write a post introducing ourselves and sharing about our blogs and interests. I am very excited about the possible opportunity to get connected with a great company whom I can work with on an ongoing basis.
So here goes: The Painter Mommy Bio
My name is Dawn, otherwise known as @PainterMommy on Twitter. My blog address is www.PainterMommy.com. I am a mother of 3 little ones (ages 5, 3, & 9 months). I am also 4 months pregnant with #4. Prior to starting Painter Mommy, I blogged for a few years but only about mural painting and faux finishing for my NY based decorative painting business, Surfaces with Paint. Once I started building virtual relationships online with other moms through social networking, I was introduced to the world of mom blogging. I immediately fell in love, and from there, Painter Mommy was born.
I really wanted a place to be able to share about my life as a busy mom, multiple business owner, and entrepreneur. I really had no idea that it would grow so quickly and that people would actually find interest in what I write about. It has been so exciting to share about my life’s experiences, my triumphs and struggles, and then receive awesome words of advice, compassion, and encouragement from my readers.
It has also been a privilege to get connected with companies to do product reviews and offer great giveaways. I am realizing more and more that these major companies truly value the opinions of moms and I am honored to be able to be a part of that.
Some subjects that I am passionate about are: parenting, pregnancy, organizational tips & ideas, faith & inspiration, WAHM, small business, social media, and much more.
