Anne Crane of Mommy Has To Work an Interview

Anne is a full time worker who also runs two blogs. I don’t know how she handles it all but she does. She offers product reviews, giveaways, takes part in memes and even provides links to other blogs and giveaways.


Tell me about your Blog

My main blog is Mommy Has to Work. I started it to make extra money. That didn’t happen, but I enjoy doing it anyway. I post about going green and recycling, saving money and lately have quite a few giveaways, most geared toward eco-friendly products. I recently started a second Blog Mommy’s Reviews and More, just another outlet for reviews and giveaways.

What is the biggest tip you would give to product reviewers?

Don’t do too much at once. I had a back log of products to review. It takes time. More than I thought.

Are you contacted by advertisers or do you contact them or both?

I started out contacting different companies. i looked for products that were eco-friendly and just emailed them. It was easier than I first thought. Now I also get some companies that contact me!

What is your favorite product that you have reviewed?

I love the Snack Taxies and ReUseIt Sandwich bags. I know such a little thing, but I use them everyday!

What do advertisers do that you wish they wouldn’t/ do that you like?

Some ask for too many links and keywords to be added to the review. I don’t mind promoting them, but some are very detailed.

What advertiser would you like to work with given a chance?

I would love to work with the big names. I don’t think my blog is big enough yet, though, but who wouldn’t want a new fridge or washer and dryer. Do they get to keep those? Ireally like promoting the “green” and eco-friendly products, so anything in the area.

What is one thing about you that not many people know?

Well, on my profile, I list 2 children, but I actually helped raise my husbands three sons too. And I tattoo permanent make up at the doctors office where I work. Oh and sometimes I can be a pain, ask my husband.

What’s your favorite book?

The Twilight series, I know it’s everyone’s, but it was so good.

What is on your iPod?

I’m not cool enough to have one.

What are your contact details?

What events do you attend?

So far I attended the Social Media Moms Celebration at Walt Disney World in February 2010. It was awesome!
How do you prefer to communicate?

Email or phone – no preference
What is one thing people can do for you?
Forgive me. Sometimes I get a little testy and I don’t really mean it.
