Janel has been a One2One influencer practically as long as she’s been a blogger. She started her blog, A Mom’s Take, over six years ago and has built it into a lovely site full of all kinds of resources for moms- from reviews to recipes to crafts to parenting tips and more! Janel loves to play strategic board games, visit theme parks, read, design in Photoshop, and travel! Janel met her husband on a Caribbean cruise and they were married just 15 months later. They’ve had 5 beautiful boys together.
Favorite O2O Projects you’ve worked on:
I partnered with O2O on a Graco Baby e-retailer campaign. It was such an easy and straight-forward process that it was a really fun project to be a part of.
Tell us how you came to be a blogger.
I started my blog on April 1st, 2010 (no joke!). I wanted to create a resource site for moms and with a history of surveys and product testing, I thought a blog would be right up my alley. Blogging has become so much more than I ever imagined it could be for my family. I’ve been able to make a full time income and even hire a team of consultant writers to add variety to the site.
Who is another blogger you admire and why.
My blogging inspiration was Simply Stacie. She was the first blog I followed religiously and I still look up to her sight for inspiration as she adapts to the changes in the blogosphere.
Is there a piece of advice, quote, or mantra that you live by?
Work Hard. I firmly believe that you can achieve whatever you aspire to as long as you’re willing to put in the sweat equity and persevere even when it gets hard.
What is the best thing to do where you live?
Phoenix is absolutely gorgeous all through the fall, winter, and spring months for getting outdoors. There are a ton of breathtaking hiking trails in the valley and near by. In the summer, it’s hide inside as much as possible or go to the pool, splash pad, or movies!
Night owl or early bird?
What is your favorite time of the year?
Fall Through the Holidays
Three things you can’t live without (besides family/friends/faith).
My laptop, chocolate, and bubble baths!
