Each Friday on The Mommy-Files, we feature one blogger and have the opportunity to get to know that blogger a little more! I love Featured Blogger Fridays because it gives all of my readers and visitors, as well as myself, a chance to get to know other bloggers out in the blogosphere. Today, I am pleased to introduce Jessica from The “B” Keeps Us Honest!  I am excited to learn more about Jessica and her blog!   I love her blogging tips and have to agree with her on her actor/actress favorites (go Johnnie Depp!).  Without further ado, here is Jessica from The “B” Keeps Us Honest!

The B Keeps Us Honest-Product Review

What made you choose the name of your blog?

“The B Keeps Us Honest” is a quote from my husband. We were riding in the car and I randomly mentioned that I often forget that we have a “b” in our last name. To which my husband responded, “The “b” keeps us honest. Our last name is Lieb. You can figure out the rest.
Who designed your blog?

I used a basic template for the layout and then created all of the graphics myself.
What do you love about blogging?

I love all the reviews I get to write but I’m particularly fond of the ones that are for kids, especially if they are green!
What is the purpose of your blog?

I originally started blogging as a way to stay connected with friends and family but over time I realized people enjoyed reading my thoughts about products I use and deals that I find. So I started, The B Keeps Us Honest.
Do you have any blogging tips (i.e. from those getting started to those who have been blogging longer than you)?

There are a lot of blogs out there, especially mommy blogs. Find your niche and master it. Make your blog clean, easy to read and navigate. Also, network like crazy. Join groups, forums, and comment on other blogs.

    I seriously LOVE how she came up with her name-That’s definitely a happenstance situation 🙂
    Great interview-She seems so down to earth! I can’t wait to check out her blog.

  3. Anyone who lists Johnny Depp as her favorite actor is OK with me!! 🙂
    Plus that sundae sounds HEAVENLY, if I ever get to London, I will most certainly try that, I love those candies (even if I can’t pronounce them – TeeHee).
    I can’t wait to head on over to her blog and check it out, great name by the way… we have to constantly remind people that our last name doesn’t have an “R” after the “h”.
    Thanks for introducing another great woman, Shannon…. you are wonderful.
