This week’s featured blogger is Jamie Z. of Cake Mom. 

When did you start blogging?

I began blogging in January of 2010

Why did you start blogging?

I was taking cake decorating classes at the time and I often read blogs. It just kind of hit me that it may be fun to do a blog about my cake decorating trials and tribulations.  I then started featuring baking related product reviews and giveaways. As my site grea in popularity, more companies were requesting that I review their products. Since I only bake on occasion, my blog has become much more about product reviews though I still feature my cakes when I make them.

What do you like to blog about?

My favorite topic is still baking! I love to try new recipes and new food-related products.

What do you like most about blogging?

I love having the opportunity to share my opinion. I am just an average person, trying to juggle work and home life like many of my readers. I love to share with them my thoughts on products which can either save them the bother (and money) of purchasing a product that does not live up to expectations or encourage them to try out something really new and exciting.

What’s one tip you’d give to someone who’s thinking of starting a blog?

Make sure you know what you are getting into. Blogging is a lot of fun and it is really a great way to try new products; however, it is also a lot of work.
