Influencer of the Week – Jenn from More Than a Mom of Three Blog

Hi, My name is Jenn and I own the blog More Than A Mom Of Three.

How did you being blogging?

I started blogging back in 2009 right after my second child was born. I knew I wanted to stay home when my first child was born in 2007, it was always a dream of mine to be a stay at home mom. I needed to figure out a way to make being a SAHM my job. Which meant being frugal, cooking, cleaning, organizing and keeping everyone happy. Its the toughest job ever but I would never change it. I wanted to share my everyday life and connect with other moms that were doing exactly what I do day in and day out. Sharing my tricks and tips and getting 24/7 advice from other moms is amazing. Its a giant community of friends.

How did you choose your blog’s title?

Originally my blog was a couponing/frugal blog. I wanted to help teach people about saving money using coupons, but through the years it grew into something different. Once I started connecting with my fantastic readers, I shared more about what I do as a mom. We all know mom’s juggle many hats, so More Than A Mom Of Three was born. I am more than a mom to my three wonderful kiddos.

What are you preferred blogging topics?

I talk about a little bit of everything, really. My main passions are cooking so I often share recipes and organization of the household to make everything run as smooth as possible in my home. I have a bit of an obsession with any printable to keep me organized.

What are your three favorite blog posts?

These are my three most viewed posts. I love them because they represent everything I do. The kids chore chart is still one used daily in my home.

  • Bacon Beer Cheese Dip
  • Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Crock Pot Chicken
  • Free Printable Kids Chore Chart

What are you up to when not blogging?

Hanging out with my family. You rarely see me blogging on weekends, that is devoted to family time with the kids and my husband. I enjoy cooking too! Surprisingly it is very soothing for me to whip something up for the kids. I try to get them involved every time I can.

What are your tips for balancing family life and blogging?

I’m not going to lie it’s tough and sometimes I struggle with it. I have to say me not blogging on the weekends has helped out a ton. My kids know the weekends are devoted to just them. I also set a time limit for the workday (Mon – Fri) I cut out blocks of time each morning, afternoon and night. I rarely ever go over my set time. You have to limit the time you spend online, social media alone could cost your hours if you get lost in it.

Why and how do you use Sverve?

I use Sverve for many things.Connecting with other bloggers, great tip sharing and some great campaign opportunities.

Do you have any tips for your success on Sverve?

Be active! Sharing your tips or endorsing someone at least a few times a week.

Can you share any blogging tips that have really helped you?

Having a clean looking blog design is important. Readers do not want to see a thousand flashing ad’s or pop ups. It takes away from the content you are writing about. You spend hours on a fantastic post, but if it’s hard to read because of distractions no one will stick around and read it.

What do you love most about blogging?

Community and connecting! I feel that my readers and I share a bond. I love to share my life as an ordinary mom with three crazy but adorable kids just trying to make it to the next day.  They get it! They know what I go through and visa versa.
