Welcome to our slice of the Midwest… from a mom’s perspective!
We feature blog topics such as craft tutorials, delicious recipes, family, great deals and finds, and product reviews for moms. We also provide information to other bloggers about events and networking opportunities.
I have always been very career oriented. I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management and Marketing in 2001 and proceeded to take additional courses in computer related subjects to fulfill my need for learning. Since, I have worked in the industries of cable and telecommunications, purchasing and procurement and system and website development.
I learned a lot working outside the home, but when my daughter was born, I longed to be able to stay at home. I finally had the chance to transition into a work at home role doing freelance copywriting, social media and search engine optimization. One day, after writing 50+ articles for other websites, I wondered why in the world I hadn’t just thought of writing for my own website.
That evening, Midwestern Moms was born.
Luckily, I knew a little something about launching websites, so it didn’t take me long to have it up and running. With the support of my family and friends, I was able to start getting my blog seen by more people.
But, for me, blogging for my friends and family wasn’t enough.
I’m more of a “Go Big or Go Home” type of girl.
I opened up my mind to the possibility of working with others to be able to actually make a difference. As a new mom, I spent so much time on the Internet researching products for my daughter and found myself becoming an advocate for these products. If I love something enough for it to make a difference in my life, I want other people to know about it!
My closest friends will tell you that I am the most open and honest person that you will ever meet. As a blogger, I strongly believe in authenticity and I would never bore you with something that I didn’t like or find interesting. Us moms have to stick together… and loyalty is something that is important to me.
In my spare time, you will find me with my face in front of my Kindle Fire, because if I am not writing, I am reading. I feature a lot of books on this blog and show Indie authors a lot of support because I hope to be a published author someday soon. I also love to make things pretty! If you love crafts, please feel free to check out my craft site, My Creative Nook.
Some of my additional interests include: baking, exercise, golf, scrapbooking, crochet and I LOVE to embrace my inner nerd and geek out on all things techy!
Although a Missouri girl at heart, I currently reside in Nebraska with my husband and very active 2-year old daughter.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you have a look around and if you ever want to reach out, you can email me from my contact page.
