Welcome to Thursday Blog-Hop.

Bassgiraffe's Thoughts Canadian Mommy Blog Reviews and Giveaways

1. Please follow the hosting blog- bassgiraffe’s Thoughts and the STAR blog in spot #2.
2. Please visit as many blogs as possible.
3. If someone visits your blog please visit theirs back, but I know that we don’t like all blogs we visit so don’t feel obligated to follow back if you don’t want.
4. Family friendly blogs only, please.
5. You will need to link to your blog post that has the above blog-hop button. Without a post it makes it harder for people to have a proper place to comment and let you know they stopped by.
I will be featuring one blog from the week before who made a post containing the blog hop button. This is a random draw from here on out. Each week’s STAR spot will be chosen via If the blog chosen does not have a post containing the hop button I will redraw a name. I hope that made sense. (PLEASE– in order to be the “Star Blog” you HAVE to have the button on your blog post/or sidebar, and please make it easy for me to find).

This week’s STAR spot is Me as Mom. Please follow her blog.


I thought it would be fun to get to know the “Star Blogger”, so I asked them a few questions.

1- How long have you been blogging?
I have only been blogging since April 2010. That is when I actually
started working on my blog but I only recently started posting more

2- What got you started on blogging?
I thought blogging would be a good way to network and socialize with other moms. Feeling like I had lost a part of myself once I became a mom was a big driving force as well. I was no longer Rita but was now David’s mom and while I relish the title and experience, especially after many years of infertility, I stopped being me. I was lost. I still am but I am making my way out. Since I was always giving advice to others about infertility and business related things, I thought I must have something worthwhile to share and help others who may be feeling the same so Me as Mom was born.

3-what is the main focus of your blog?
I don’t know if there is a main focus of my blog. I blog about what I know and things I learn along the way. I have discussed my infertility lightly, motherhood, deals and bargains I find, tips for other bloggers, and even had a few reviews and giveaways. Me as Mom is just me taking it one day at a time juggling everything motherhood and life throw at me. I try and share things that are valuable and useful to others.

4- Is there anything else you’d like to share with my readers?
I am currently eight months pregnant with my second baby and would
love to have a few guest bloggers for the month of October. If you
are interested please let me know. Also, I want to thank Erica for
hosting this blog hop and giving me the opportunity to be in the Star
Spot. I appreciate it.
