About Me

griffinandmomI am Sheri McDonald. I live in Southwestern Ontario and I am happily married to Michael. We have one daughter and three sons who range in age from seven to twenty-two.

I am a Canadian Lifestyle Blogger, a Travel Blogger, a Brand Ambassador, a Social Media Influencer, a Spokesperson and an amateur photographer. I have been blogging at Kidsumers since August 2010. Previously I blogged at Teens, Tweens and Drama Queens, which was eventually amalgamated with Kidsumers. I also blog at FamilyEnroute.com and my work can be seen on various websites listed here: http://kidsumers.ca/also-seen-on

Prior to discovering my place online, I was a Social Worker who primarily worked with people living with disabilities. My love of art eventually lead me to start a niche print publication for artists, which I operated with a partner while continuing to work in social work. It was a valuable experience where I gained knowledge around design, marketing, advertising and promotion.

Kidsumers (a play on the word ‘consumers’) is a mom and lifestyle blog that focuses on family, parenting, food and family travel. I write about products and experiences that will be interesting and relevant to my readers. I engage with my readers on my blog also through my various social media accounts.

Each year I partner with brands and destinations that meet my standards for what I would like to share with my readers. Some recent brand relationships include:

  • Walmart Canada Mom
  • Today’s Parent Approved Blogger
  • Frigidaire Ambassador
  • P&G Mom
  • Hamilton Beach Ambassador
  • Orange Naturals Ambassador
