I 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 six to twenty-one.
I am a Canadian Mom 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. Prior to that I blogged at Teens, Tweens and Drama Queens, which was eventually amalgamated with Kidsumers.
Prior to discovering my place online, I was a Social Worker. I primarily worked with people living with disabilities, and for several years I ran a municipal support services agency. 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 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 in my blog comments and 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:
- Today’s Parent Approved Blogger
- Frigidaire Ambassador
- P&G Mom
- Spokesperson for Pampers Kandoo
- Hamilton Beach Ambassador
