Don’t Call Me Mommy Blogger

utah mommy blogger Guess what? I’m not your mom.

Some people are under the impression that a woman who owns a company can be considered a “mommy blogger.” I’m a mom and I’m a blogger. But I’m not your mom. So don’t call me “mommy blogger”, “mom blogger” or “mommy” or “mom”.

There is a lot of respect for any woman who can run a business while raising her children. However, never confuse being a mom with running a business.

While a person can be both at the same time, they are two different worlds. It is possible for a woman to be a mother and a successful business owner.

Daily, I get press requests or companies that reach out and don’t take the time to actually look at my site and call me by my first name. I kid you not. This happens every day.

Here are several reasons why you shouldn’t call me a mommy blogger.

I don’t work for my kids.

Don’t get me wrong, I work to provide for my kids, but I don’t work for my kids. I’m completely capable of balancing my clients and my kids. 

Yes, there may be a time that I need to take care of my kids over my clients, but that doesn’t mean I’m not capable of handling both. I’m a professional and expect to be treated as one. 

I don’t sit in my pajamas all day.

Although I run a business and raise kids, it doesn’t mean I stay in my pajamas all day.

I’m completely capable of getting fully dressed and tackling the work day just like any other professional. In fact, I am more productive when I get dressed and treat the day just like I would any other job.

I bring home a pay check.

This isn’t to say that mommy bloggers don’t bring home a paycheck because they do.

However, owning a business is way different than running a blog. You can guarantee and bet on your life that I take pride in bringing home a paycheck.

My paycheck has nothing to do with being a mother and it has everything to do with being a professional.

I deserve to be treated like a professional.

If for one second you think you can pay me in gold fish and a glass of diet coke, you’re wrong. I own a business and I need to bring in revenue.

When you choose to work with me, you are getting a professional and not someone who can pay her bills on kiddie snacks, although a case of diet coke as payment doesn’t seem too far off.

So, the next time you think you don’t want to do business with a “mommy blogger”—think again. I’m able to balance a house, a career, and run a business. If anything, this should motivate you to hire me considering I give everything I’ve got to everything in my life.
