I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and decided that I wanted to start a new meme called “Featured Blogger Friday.” This will get everyone a chance to meet some of the great bloggers that are out there! πŸ™‚ This week, The Mommy-Files is featuring “Cheaper Than Therapy – Musings of The Mom Jen” by a fellow Mommy Blogger. Here is a little bit about The Mom Jen.

Cheaper Than Therapy

Therapeutic Reviews & Giveaways

What made you choose the name of your blog?

Cheaper Than Therapy-Musings of The Mom Jen is about my life, my family, my neuroses and the title is very literal, it’s very helpful to write through the madness. Therapeutic Reviews & Giveaways is a fun site that helps you take the edge off and have some fun with giveaways and freebies.

Because I love writing. I find that my family blog and my stories reach a wide community of mom-bloggers and I love the support and the “me too!” attitude. Over the course of a year+ I’ve found a group of loving, supporting women that have become friends. Therapeutic grew from the attention I got from my main blog and I just love giving away prizes to people!!
