About Me


Hi there!
Freda here, the editor and opinionator of Freda's Voice.
Welcome!

Let me tell you a little about myself.
I am a Métis mother of two adult children, two dogs and a hubster.
I have a love for poetry, photography and books.

I also have a day job, which I love most of the time.

You are welcome to visit my photography blog, Day One.

I also post my poetry on Tumblr, along with videos and such. However, this is pretty much the only spot to read my poetry. If you'd like to check that out visit Pretentious Prose.

As for my blogging on Freda's Voice, my goal is to bring you all the things I love and more.
If I read a good book, I hope that my reviews project that and possibly you would read that book too.
Same as for any product or service I review.
I also am a fan of giveaways.
Being a person who has entered and won many giveaways, I feel it's great to give back.
I host giveaways and host sponsored giveaways. 
Feel free to email me anytime for either a review or giveaway. I am always open to email.

So now you now a little bit about me. Feel free to comment with any questions, comments or suggestions.
Start a conversation too, if you like. Tell me about you!

  6. Hey Freda!

    Hello from FishFlix.com

    My name is Max, I’m writing because I recently found your blog and noticed that you sometimes review Christian products. We’re looking for bloggers like you who would like to review a Christian DVD for us.

    FishFlix.com is one of the top sites on the web for Christian and family-friendly DVDs. We love having bloggers review products for us because it gives us perspective on the products we sell, and provides us with ever-valuable backlinks.

    Could I send you a free DVD in exchange for an honest review and two links to our site? If you’re interested, please reply with your mailing address and your preference of movie type [Children’s | Feature Film | Documentary].

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.

You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
