31DBB: Day 1: Elevator Pitch

I have joined up with SITS Girls to do the ProBloggers 31 Days to Building a Better Blog Challenge. Follow me through my journey of 31 days to a better blog through my personal blog, and my business blog. Today we are doing "Elevator Pitches".

What is an Elevator Pitch?
“An elevator pitch is an overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The name reflects the fact that an elevator pitch can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (for example, thirty seconds or 100–150 words).” —Wikipedia

In the Ebook ProBloggers 31 Days to Building a Better Blog , he lists out in bullet points how to write a great elevator pitch. He writes about how the elevator pitch can be everything from your tagline to "pitching" your blog to others. What do I say about my blog in around 150 words (more more or less) when describing my blog to others in about a minutes time frame.

A pitch, this goes back to "selling" and "branding" myself. I use "taglines" and pitches through out my blog and social media sites for I actually have a couple:

On "Helping Your Pennies Makes More Sense" and the one I use on Twitter is "I Love Being Cheap".

My elevator pitch on that blog is (or many bio if you will)
"Helping busy moms become more savvy with spending money and the products they buy. Showing you how to receive the latest deals, coupons, and freebies, saving you time and money!"

For today's challenge though, I need to create one for this blog. I came up with

"Mom to a spunky 10 year old daughter and an adventurous 6 year old son. Blogging about the craziness of a getting married while blending a family with 4 kids and whatever life brings, through words and pictures in the Sweet Land of Chaos."

My original elevator pitch lacked descriptiveness and uniqueness, let me know what you think of the one above!
