Reader Questions Answered:

What types of products do you review? – Gabrielle in Arizona

I am married with two kids, a son age 10, and a 4 year old daughter so I review just about anything that a family can use including baby, toddler, and kids clothes, nursery decor, baby and kids shoes, online services for parents, educational toys, wooden toys, handmade clothes and toys, food for families, diaper bags, strollers, gadgets, and more. Are all of your reviews positive? – Nancy in Florida Pretty much. If I don’t like a product or service, I don’t take my time to write about it and feature it on The Mommy Insider.

What is a normal day like for you? – Margarett in Ohio

Whoa! I get up around 7am and go to bed around 1:37am (give or take a few minutes) and don’t remember what happens in between.

How do you make money? Do you charge a fee to review products? Bonnie in North Carolina

I make money from companies that chose to sponsor an advertising spot in the right and left columns of The Mommy Insider. I am also the editor of, a local guide for Atlanta area parents from which I make money from sponsors. I do not charge a fee for product reviews unless a company requests that the review is expedited in which case I charge a rush fee.

Do you give products away that you review? – Susan in California

I give away mostly everything I review. Some giveaways are the actual product that I review while some are extra samples sent by the company just to give away to lucky readers!

Do you do speaking engagements, news features, etc.? – Albert in Maine

Yes, I am happy to speak at an engagement or in a news segment related to ‘mommy blogging’, family product trends, blogs in general, parenting, working from home, and entrepreneurship.

How long have you been the editor of The Mommy Insider and what is your long-term goal? – Caroline in Mississippi

I started The Mommy Insider 7 years ago while on bed rest and my long term goal is to eat breakfast tomorrow. OK, so I sometimes wonder where The Mommy Insider is going, too. I am committed to writing about products that I love for a long, long, long time. I love what I do and won’t stop.. unless a company offers $1,589,537 (give or take a few dollars) to buy the site and let me keep full editorial control, hint, hint ;).
