Model mum Pippa's hoping for web hit
MODEL mum Pippa O'Connor has launched a website that could turn into a major money-spinner.
The 29-year-old has spoken of her surprise after being approached by advertisers offering cash to promote their products on pippa.ie – just days after it went online.
"Pippa just wanted somewhere on which to blog about stuff she's interested in, like health and beauty, fashion and being a mum," said a source close to the mother-of-one. But word of mouth has seen the Pippa O'Connor Ormond site clock up hundreds of hits.
So much so it could soon be selling banner ads, with Pippa taking on someone to look after calls from advertisers.
"The interest has come as a surprise to Pippa. The launch wasn't to be for a couple of weeks but already it's flying, with hundreds of hits a day," added the insider.
Pippa sparked huge interest earlier this month when she teamed up with husband Brian Ormond on TV, co-presenting the National Lottery Big Money Game.
The couple are now expected to work on new TV projects together next year.
Brian and Pippa trained rival GAA teams in the 2012 series of Celebrity Bainisteoir, and also appeared in hit RTE reality show Brian And Pippa Get Married, which followed their wedding at the Ritz Carlton in Co Wicklow in 2011.
