What Mommy Wants is now KID-FREE. This blog is focusing on Mommy who is more than a mom. She is a wife and a woman, there will topics of a more mature nature. If you are not comfortable with these topics please take a moment to unsubscribe. I appreciate your loyalty this far!

What Mommy Wants is becoming a KID FREE ZONE!

So, I would like to start by saying that this blog has opened many doors for me. I started this blog with the wrong intentions and it snowballed entirely too fast for me to keep up with. I am extremely grateful for the fans who have stuck it out with me! You guys made me a great success, very quickly.

In the beginning I wanted to have a "review blog". I was greedy and saw many blogs getting awesome products to review. I was entering giveaway after giveaway and realized I could do what they were doing! So I took the plunge and started What Mommy Wants. Originally meaning "products that Mommy wants". Well, after reviewing MANY products, Mommy realized she was getting behind on her actual Mommy duties! (Yes, I did just talk about myself in the third person.) I fell behind, disappointed sponsors and let down my readers. After taking some time to reflect (and have another baby) I have decided that What Mommy Wants means something entirely different to me than I had expected or even wanted.

What Mommy Wants now means "What Mommy Wants to do/have/be/share without the kids". If you want to know about what I'm doing with the kids, I blog about that at Teen Toddler Newborn. I started that for the child related stories, review, crafts etc.

I am not going anywhere and neither is this blog. The change will be with you, my readers! I am in the process of an overhaul of this blog and while some of you will love it, I understand that some of you will hate it. I expect a significant decrease in fans, readers, pageviews and a great drop in my stats.

Along this journey I failed to remember that I like writing! Of course the products I got to keep were awesome but the real reason I want to keep this blog going is because I like writing!

What Mommy Wants is becoming a KID FREE ZONE!

Environmentally friendly information

To sum it up, this blog is no longer the typical "Mommy Blog". The focus will be on actual writing, story telling, relationships etc, that I can't discuss around my kids. Basically, I don't have many grown up friends. I want to share grown up stuff and you guys will be my new friends. Do you accept my friendship?

Here is the part where I say this: 
If you don't want to read foul language, see mature reviews or support my efforts to remain sane via some online venting please feel free to unsubscribe. I don't blame you and understand completely why some may be offended by the new content.

If you are up for it, put the kids to bed, get out your reading glasses and a glass of wine. Those who stick around will be rewarded with my humorous outlook on difficult situations and meaningful discussions about unimportant topics. 


  1. Go girl! I cannot wait to see it!

  2. We all come to a point when we need a change and I think it's great that you've found your new niche. I will definitely come back and check out your updates. :D

  3. Best wishes with your rebranding efforts and good for you for taking a new direction with your site! :)

  4. I completely understand. Reviews take a lot to keep up on.


I love hearing what you have to say! Please share your thoughts with me here:
