How can I have my product featured on your website or social media?

This blog is writing centered, but I do share products on Fridays for something light and fun! Spots are limited and selected carefully. The majority of items marketed are things I’ve specifically sought after due to pure adoration. Please use the contact info below to send a short bio and a link to your product and/or website if you think I’d be interested!

Do you have sidebar advertising spots available?

Yes, however spots are limited. Please use the contact info below to send a short bio and a link to your product and/or website. I am currently offering select Etsy shops a discounted price to help support women + small businesses. 

How can I contact you?

Say Hello.

What happened to Motley Mama?

I started motleymama.com in the Spring of 2011 when I was pregnant with my first baby. I have since outgrown its title and format, but I treasure those old posts and am thankful for the readers and community I’ve found in blogging.


Where can I find your birth stories?

Waylon’s birth story.

Eva’s birth story.


Where did all the posts about your kids/monthly reviews go?

In an effort to focus on writing, I have moved personal posts about my kids to their own separate sites. An online scrapbook so no one has to use scissors or enter craft stores. For now they will remain public. You can access them here:

Waylon: http://waylontiger.wordpress.com

Eva: http://evadecember.wordpress.com


Are you writing a book?

Yes. Send Xanax.


How did you cope with Waylon’s colic?

Waylon was the Charlie Sheen of babies. It gets better.


Does Austin ever care that you write about him in your posts?

No. We’re both pretty much an open book.


How did you guys meet?

You can read our love story here.


What does he do?

He’s in his fourth year of medical school at Penn State College of Medicine, pursuing a career as an Interventional Radiologist (which is a fancy way of saying he’ll be studying for a very long time). A post on marrying a student here.


What kind of camera do you use? Do you also have a video camera?

I use this camera and this lens for both pictures and video.
