Today we have Jessica Bailey from  Super Mom Surveys with us chatting about her blogging background, her blogging tips and her success!

How,when & why did you being blogging?

I got started blogging years ago, (even before it was cool).  I ran a site called KharmaCoffeeLounge.  It was pretty much the same thing as my current site, SuperMomSurveys, but not as organized.  I began blogging because I have always been able to make my dollar stretch with free samples and products from companies.  I can go a few months on my samples when times get tough financially.  I have a passion for freebies and making money online and I wanted to share my knowledge with everyone.  I currently make $400-$600 every month, just by doing surveys.  I wanted to help others do the same thing.  I used to make a free site and bought a domain for $17/yr..

What are you preferred blogging topics?

I try not to stick to limited topics.  I want my readers to be well-rounded in their knowledge, so I post about absolutely anything and everything that I think may be interesting.  I love to drop some wisdom on my site and then watch the comments roll in with everyone’s opinions and tips.  It makes blogging worth-while.  I love having conversations with people about the different things they find interesting.  I know quite a few of my readers by name because of our discussions.

What are your three favorite blog posts?

I loved my post titled Ten Time-Saving Tips to Make Your Life as a Busy Mom Easier.  It contains some of the best tips I use for keeping my home a little cleaner, without being exhausted by the time noon rolls around.  This was one of my earlier posts and I still repost it every few months.

Truly Inspired to “Feed My Freezer”   is another one of my favorite posts.  I ran across this article on another blog that truly inspired me and I just had to tell people about it.  It’s a must for busy, budget savvy moms and dads.  It has certainly helped our family quite a bit.

My third favorite post was a sponsored review that I did for Insightly.  Sponsored Review: Insightly CRM & Project Management.  I loved this program and it really paved the way for more technology and organization posts.  This post was offered to me through Sverve!

What are you up to when not blogging?

When I’m not blogging, I am doing all things family-oriented!  Family time is a huge deal in our house!  My wonderful, gorgeous husband and I have 4 beautiful children.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy…ages 6, 5, 3 and 1.  There’s not a lot of down-time or dull moments here!  Some of our more quiet days involve a lot of baking.

What are your tips for balancing family life and blogging?

I think the biggest tip I have would be to be sure to not over-commit yourself.  Being a SuperMom doesn’t mean you have to be exhausted.  If you have a busy schedule, recognize that and don’t push it.  I blog in the morning and afternoon when the kids, (that aren’t in school), are eating breakfast and lunch or are playing in their room.  I also blog at night while they are laying down or sleeping.

Why and how do you use Sverve?

I absolutely love Sverve!  I love the opportunity to work with all these wonderful companies!  I use Sverve to get involved with various businesses and their products.  I love to do reviews and sponsored posts!  I have a continued working relationship with a few of the companies I have been engaged with on Sverve!

Do you have any tips for your success on Sverve?

My biggest tip for being successful on Sverve is to follow through with your commitments and be honest.  Endorse your fellow bloggers and watch your numbers grow.

What do you love most about blogging?

I love that blogging allows me to share a passion that I have for saving and making money online.  I love that I can help people ease up their finances every day without losing precious time with their families!

      Hi Dima,

      My tip would be to be sure you apply for the campaigns that you definitely qualify for and be reasonable in your asking price…if it’s not a fixed price. Other than that, just wait and wait some more. They’ll come along. There’s always tons of campaigns starting up all the time, so there’s plenty of chances. As your numbers grow, so will your opportunities.
