Time for more Blogger Spotlight! This one goes out to all my Jersey fans! Jennifer, today's Spotlight, runs an amazing website called Jersey Family Fun. This is SUCH a great resource not only for NJ families, but anyone in the tri-state area (or tourists/visitors). Read on to learn more about Jennifer, her family, her blogging, and all the fun that can be had in Garden State!

For a long time it was a Cookies N' Cream but now it's a toss up between anything that has chocolate, cookies. or marshmallows.

Winger, Whitesnake, Warrant
Best place you've ever vacationed
Orlando, Florida in particular Discovery Cove
How long have you been blogging?
Jersey Family Fun is a year old, but I was blogging for 6 months to a year before that. I've lost track.
Why did you choose your blog's name/theme?
Jersey Family Fun was the name I had on Facebook for a very long time. When I was ready to launch it as a blog, I struggled with the name. Then, it hit me that Jersey Family Fun was the best name. We cover all of New Jersey and we primarily blog about fun events and places families can go to.
Why did you start blogging?
I was frustrated that to find out about local family friendly events I had to search multiple on-line and off-line sources. I wanted to give families one place they could find it all. I also was surprised to learn there wasn't a central source to learn more about family-friendly attractions in New Jersey. Each attraction has it's own site but most of the time unless you are a local or can pay for major advertising you aren't aware a place exists. It's fun letting my readers in on treasures I've been able to find in New Jersey and the surrounding area.
