Ok guys, some big changes are on their way for Not Your Basic Mom. This little passion project of mine has grown faster than I could have imagined, and I'm excited to roll out a brand new facet of the blog called Not Your Basic Living.
Not Your Basic Living will be a portion of my blog dedicated to (1) supporting small businesses (2) featuring advice of other mothers who seem to know what they are doing, and (3) sharing products I love. Here are some questions you may (or may not) have about Not Your Basic Living:
Are you continuing your writing?
Of course. This blog is centered around writing and will continue to be. But my vision for Not Your Basic Mom has always been to serve many purposes. I will continue to post essays, but I'm excited to talk about the not-so-heavy things from time to time as well.
What will Not Your Basic Living posts look like?
It depends. There are a ton of products and tricks that make momming easier. So, I want to share what (little) I know. Am I an expert on how to live an awesome mom life? Ummm no... But I love promoting cool small businesses, life hacks, and anything that will make life easier for some mom somewhere, somehow.
What you will NOT see is shameless promotion of large companies just to pad my own pockets. I will be featuring small businesses only (think Etsy shops, locally made goods, etc). So don't panic- I haven't sold my soul to Wal-Mart just yet.
When is Not Your Basic Living going live?
Soon- I will be posting some new material in the next few days. So stay tuned!
In the meantime, if you have a small business you would like to share with my readers, shoot me an email or send me a message on social media. Or if you have any tips, life hacks, or useful general knowledge about motherhood- I would love to hear from you.
As always, thanks for reading what I have to say. You guys are the best!
