About Me

I am a mother and grandmother with five grown children and nine grandchildren ranging from newborn through early teens. I have raised a variety of animals as well including rescue dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, geese, reptiles, fish, and a worm farm to help me with my gardening. I also used to help my grandparents on the farm with their livestock. Additionally, I have cared for disabled adults and children, as well as spending 14 years volunteering my services in hospice as well as the education and childcare fields. My family & I have a wide range of interests & experiences, making it easy for us to evaluate many types of products.

I have been providing honest product reviews for more than 2 decades. Some of this was done on websites such as Epinions where I was considered an expert, an advisor, and a top reviewer in several categories such as pets, children and families, home and garden, music, musical instruments, and online stores and services. I also enjoy sharing my opinions on social media and spend a lot of time interacting with my followers.

I have a new granddaughter who is just a few weeks old so evaluations of mommy & baby items are a good match for our family. My other grandchildren range from toddlers to teens, making these age groups also a good match for us as well. My children, my grandchildren & I have a wide range of interests including music, dance, yoga, health, aromatherapy, exercise & fitness, automotive, computers, electronics, sports and outdoors, hunting, fishing, boating, camping, sewing, arts and crafts, cooking and baking, food and food storage, pets, gardening, hydroponics / aquaponics / vermiculture, home improvement, home decorating, photography, writing, entertainment, DJ / karaoke / stage lighting, education & more.

My family comes in all shapes & sizes including men, women, boys & girls of all ages. We love to try new styles in clothing, shoes & jewelry. We love playing with toys & games of all types. We all love music and enjoy singing as well as playing a variety of musical instruments. We are always happy to experiment with new ideas. We have worked in a variety of occupations including automotive, healthcare, retail, communications, manufacturing, electrical, banking, building, food service, and more. We have held positions ranging from general laborer to managerial positions and home businesses. We also have a variety of hobbies and interests, providing us with a wide range of experiences which can help us give a good evaluation of many different types of products.

I am not only posting on the RankBooster Blog
in addition to my own Blog at Haulbooty.com,
but also post often on sites like:
Facebook
Twitter
Tumbler
Pinterest
Instagram
YouTube
I have a couple of Facebook pages devoted to product reviews, and also manage a few pages which are devoted to specific themes. If a product fits well into one of these themes, I will often share my review on one of these pages as well for even more exposure. See links below.

There are very few types of products we would not be able to properly evaluate, so feel free to make offers even if a specific interest isn't listed here. I love to try new and different things, and hope to work with you soon. If you have any questions or any items you want me to review feel free to send me a coupon or msg me on Facebook.

When sending coupons, please try to make sure they are usable. I have had to return over a dozen coupons over the past week which either could not be used on Amazon (invalid codes mostly) or were for the wrong amount. I expect to pay only the agreed amount, and only accept codes which are as agreed. Thank you for checking out my profile, and I look forward to working with you.
