Jaime Maerz, Mommy Blogger and Stay-at-Home Mom
When I was first asked to be a mommy blogger, truth be told, I had never heard of the phrase. After a little digging I found out it’s, by definition, a mom, who blogs ~ how original! I guess I qualify. Being a stay at home mom to two young boys, 4.5 and almost 2, my days generate a lot to blog about, though I never really took the time to do it all that often. So when this opportunity came to me, after initially thinking, where will I find the time to do this, I then thought, this is just what I need!
I love being home with my kids and being there to engage in every step of their development, but the thought of writing something that someone can read and actually gain something from, that does not consist of talking about myself in the third person, like Elmo does, makes me almost giddy with excitement!
Linden Coyne, Mommy Blogger and Small Business Owner
I’m a proud mom to three adorable, little monsters (three and under) and CEO of Junk in the Trunk Removal Services, an earth-friendly, junk removal company with pink trucks. I work 20 hours in the office and 20 hours from home, around my children’s schools and play dates. I write about my adventures in being a busy mom and business owner, and finding ways to overcome the challenges that balancing these two jobs present.
