Video Interview with Humor Blogger Dawn from “Because I Said So” — Part 1

by Susan

Janice and I had a fun chat with the popular humor blogger and author Dawn Meehan from Because I Said So.

Dawn is famous for her ebay auction where she sold a set of Pokemon cards and indirectly drove enormous levels of traffic to her blog.

Her auction was hilarious and her quality humor blog turned those would-be one-time visitors into regular readers and helped set her apart as a top mom blog.

This is the first video of our series of four interview segments with Dawn.

5 Minutes for Mom Interviews Dawn Meehan from Because I Said So from 5 Minutes for Mom on Vimeo.

We’ve hosted this video at Vimeo because we love their video quality! If you don’t have an account there, you definitely should create one. It’s a fantastic community that could use your support. And once you’ve made your account, you can comment and vote (or ‘like’) videos. Hint Hint. :)

But you can also watch this video on YouTube if you prefer. (Or watch and vote for it at both sites. LOL)

If you’d like to share this video with your readers, we’d love it if you embedded it on your own blog. (Or you can link back here.)

You can embed either the Vimeo version or the YouTube one. Simply click on the embed link on the video after you’ve watched it and copy that code in a post on your own site.

We’d also love it if you left comments or “Liked” on Vimeo or “Favorited” on YouTube. :)

And of course, stop by Dawn’s blog and tell her how fabulous she is!!!

And great new trailer!

I’ll have to check hers out. If it’s clean humor then it’ll be rare, in my opinion. I’ve run into funny blogs but they are laced with curse words :–( I’m just not into reading profanity.

Dawn is one of my favorite blogs to read (After 5MFM of course). This is so great to see the woman behind the blog. Thank you.

Just “clicking through” my RSS feeder as requested. I’m a sporadic blogger but loyal reader. Keep up the good work.

I LOVE Dawn and feel blessed to call her a true friend. Everyone needs to add her blog to their reader and buy her book when it comes out!

I’m a big fan of Dawn. I could have stood 10 minutes of her (at least). She looks good with makeup on and without her hands in some toilet. How do you do it? CGI?
