The oldest was not very Happy with me taking pictures as we was walking in the front door! As you can clearly see on Jasmine’s face. They told me to STOP and they didn’t need me to walk them to class!!
Hi Everyone I Looking For some of the Best Mom/female women of color bloggers And When I say Best No I don’t Mean Top blogger I mean someone who loves to blog loves readers, comments and traffic! I am working on a new project and would love for you to join in All I am asking is to please post your Grab Me buttons and blog links in here!
After everything is done I will contact you with all the info!
I guess you would call me a newer blogger I started blogging this year on my other blog and Must Admit I had big Dreams I wanted to be the next top mommy Blogger. I read lots of great Blogs and wanted to be just like some of the top mommy bloggers that are out here today and have became a common name in the blogging world.
Boy did those dreams die Fast! I have to give it to these lady’s though they are on top of their shit but with that they spend Hours on top of hours doing what they do to become this. I have to admit I don’t have that time or determination for blogging like I thought. I am a Mom A busy Mom at that, I am PTO president, on the local school board, team mom, classroom mom and whatever other mom that is needed at my kids school not to mention all the other things that I have going on with my hectic life
I know some of these moms do the same or even more then I do but I can’t compete or balance all that. I would have loved to been able to, but it’s just not going to happen and I have accepted that.
I have decided that I love blogging and I love my readers and friends that I have met in the blogging world so I am going to continue to blog But On my terms and what I want to blog about. I am going to stop focusing On My Page rank, giveaways, reviews and companies reaching out to me that’s another reason I started this new blog. I am starting fresh! I don’t care about all that and sure the hell not going to stress myself out like I seen some other bloggers saying it does to them.
I have read both sides now and I see that it’s not what everyone thinks. These moms deal with a lot of shit especially if they do reviews and giveaways! True they might get paid and get free stuff but IS IT WORTH IT? Hours and hours writing a review for what a free product that most of them would have never even bought or tried the items they are reviewing in the first place if it wasn’t for the PR pitch they received. People seem to think these moms get Lots of free Big high price Items and get paid well , but the truth is those big Items to review are actually very slim and hard to come by and most items are a very small price to pay for the work you have to put in for the review and giveaways.
Some moms love doing giveaways and Product Reviews and Yes I do also But here on out I am not going to agree to do ANY Review for something I am Not Interested in or would ever buy now or later. I am not going to say No PR because I love trying new things and giving my readers my honest Review but it has to be something I want to do and something I feel that my readers would like.
I have also seen The Mom’s that I call the greedy Moms that take all these free products promising the reviews but never writes it or if they do write it I have to ask myself why even waste that time you just spent writing just a few words about a product that I could have went to the company’s website and got the same INFO you put! To Me I think that PR’s need to actually start reading these bloggers post before getting them to do PR for them!
Then they are the Drama Mommy bloggers and I know you have seen it the ones that Love drama and will do anything to start shit with another blogger. This Is another Reason I don’t want to be a BIG Mommy Blogger LOL. I am not the type of person that would take this shit offline so sure the hell not taking it online! I feel that most of the drama comes actually from jealously these blogger want something the other blogger has but don’t know how to get it.
And Last but not least THE FAKE BLOGGERS This Is my biggest issue and you will see it most in the mommy blogs is that they come online and act like their shit don’t stink! Ugh Get over yourself OK you got a great blog I give you that the layout is great the design is perfect you got a great fan base and all of that GOOD FOR YOU! BUT what you leave out all the Real issues you got going on in your life and blog like your life is perfect , the kids are always little angels, your house is always spotless, You have a great husband, you know everything about EVERYTHING POSSIBLE, you think what you say is gold and everyone should follow or do what you say, and you got money out the ass well LET ME SAY GOOD FOR YOU But I want read about the real moms the real issues and not your made up online life! I have always been told people that have to stress what they got either don’t have it or wanting to make themselves look and feel better.
Why the hell do people need to be fake online I have ran across so many fake people online and I still don’t understand why! Online is the only place where I feel that I can be my true self LMAOO I can bitch and cry all I want and not make any one really upset with me!! SO stop being FAKE and be yourself PLEASE!
And on that note I am signing out but please check back on my next Big Hot topic Black mommy bloggers vs White mommy bloggers and where they are in the blogging world
It’s Officially August! The month every high school graduate has been waiting for! College dorms will soon be flooded with moving trucks, endless piles of boxes, excited new students, and very worried parents. I miss College Days! At the Age your parents can’t tell you nothing and you think you know everything but you are about to see Parents know way more then you think and you start appreciating the little things that was took for granted like home cooked meals, room service lol, clean clothes and sheets that you didn’t have to do and the list goes on!
Big yellow buses and traffic in the morning will also be back and school hallways packed full of tiny little Pre-kindergartners and Kindergartners Entering school for the first time! some with tears and some with smiles of joy feeling that they are big kids now, either way the mom’s in this group will be sad, teary eyed and thinking time has gone by so fast! How do I know I have been there done that and doing it again this year when my little sunshine wakes up and starts her first day in Pre-K the beginning of the rest of her school life officially starts.
As I get ready for the big Day All i can think about is how time goes by so fast. It seems like yesterday I was holding my kids in my arms and now they are all in school. Each one brings a special Element in my life and all have very different personalities that makes each day brighter. At times I am so glad that school is starting back just like any mom that has been stressed till she wants to blow her hair up but I gotta admit I am going to miss them more then I let on.
OK Ladies! Have you noticed how hard Us Moms are on our self?
As I talk to other moms and listen to some of the stories I have found that we have put way to much on our self. We have got to stop feeling that we are supermom or better yet superwoman and can handle Everything and doing it perfect cause it’s just not going to happen.
Moms It’s time to step back and understand that we will never be the perfect mom or wife. We got to understand that we are going to make mistakes, things are not always going to go as planned, The house is not always going to look like what you see on TV or in the magazines, we might even make our kids or husbands upset at times but it’s ALL OK!
We often see mom’s that we feel has everything under control and wish that we could just be like her. She is the model mom as you think but deep down guess what she is dealing with the same issues as we are! She might hide it well in front of you and others but behind closed doors guess what she is just as stressed as we are!
So instead of being hard on your self its time to give your self a break! Give your self a pat on the back and remember NOBODY is perfect even if they come off like the are! IT’S FAKE and remember you only see what’s in front of you!
