Follower of the Month: Pam

Each month, I feature one of my followers as the "Follower of the Month". This gives me a chance to get to know my readers a little better. These posts go up the first Saturday of the month.

This month's Follower of the Month is Pam, a fellow Canadian, worthy of a Gold Medal. (a little reference to Pam & I tweeting all throughout the Olympics and cheering our fellow Canadians on!)

Now without further ado, please meet PAM!

1. What's your name?


2. Tell us a little bit about you.

I am a stay at home mom of three kids. My kids are 11, 6 and 3. I am a SAHM only by circumstance, I have an injury to my back which is preventing me from returning to work.

3. When did you start blogging and why?

I began because my sister had a blog, she kept telling me to start one since with my kids something was always going on and I had a story to tell.

4.Tell us a bit about your blog(s).

My blog is about my family, community and reviews and giveaways. The reviews and giveaways have really taken over right now. But, I am having a great time doing them...I know they are not for everyone, but for me I enjoy them. Having the opportunity to try new products and share my opinions has been a great thing for me, money is tight with me not working and this has given me the chance to share products with my family that otherwise we would not have.

5.Has blogging changed you or your outlook on life at all?

My first attempt at blogging was disaster, and really tainted my view of the online world. There are bad people out there and they are a community. However, this time around I got in with a great group of bloggers and this is a fabulously supportive, fun community. I am so glad I decided to give it a second attempt. Being rather isolated at home (again because of the injury) blogging gives me friendship I would not have otherwise.

These are three very supportive ladies and I love each of them. And, you of course!!

8.How did you come to be a follower of mine and why do you follow me?

I found you through Yaya about a year ago. At first I felt so badly for you and wanted to offer you some support. Now, I know you as one of the strongest people I have come across. You have suffered unimaginable loss, but each day you find reason to get out of bed and carry on. I am so in awe of the strength you have. You have taught me not to take things for granted, that each day is precious. It would be very easy to get into the rut of feeling sorry for myself, you are an inspiration to me! On a lighter note, you are a fellow Canadian:)

9.What, if anything, have you gained from reading from my blog?

Oh, I think I just answered that in the previous question, sorry. [ter says: No worries!]

10. Tell me the truth, you're going to brag to all your bloggy friends that you were my follower of the month, aren't you? ;)

Of course, it is an honor to be featured at your blog! Thank you!

In response to your comment:
I actually just got the box back yesterday!! So I have to go buy a new box bcause the one i sent it in was beat up very much. I apologize in advance for the golden retriever hair; no matter how hard I try it finds it's way into places!
I am so, so sorry for all the trouble and the delays. I feel very awful. But I pinky promise it is coming, and you will get to snuggle under it and drink hot chocolate, darnit!!
