 Hi. I’m Sommer and this is my blog and my business. My online home {sorry if it is messy I try to keep things tidy} where I share bits and pieces of my life with a hope to inspire, motivate and encourage others to be a little bit greener, just a little bit isn’t too hard.  I’m a mom and a wife who of course is juggling everything and someday a ball is going to drop – I just know it. I do my best everyday and yes sometimes I’m not very green but I try. I really do try but being green is not a race or a sense of status. We are all uniquely green in our own way.

I have many skills like juggling a million things at once but I’m especially good at blogger outreach, communication, strategies and connecting bloggers and brands.I love working with brands and agencies to connect the dots and think out of the box.  I’ve been a blogger since 2007, which makes me old in blogger years {they are like dog years}! I have plenty of testimonials, client history and examples to demonstrate my capabilities but I am always learning, growing and improving. A lifelong student and self taught entrepreneur that sees a leaf and thinks of a new business and how to market the leaf.

These goofy kids are mine. They are my heart.

Little Tidbits

  • I am from Michigan – you know the mitten state and I guess I have a very heavy Midwest “accent”.
  • I write like I talk or so my high school English teacher told me.
  • I always have bruises. My grandma said I needed to eat more bananas but really I am just a klutz.
  • I enjoy the sunshine but I’m not really a fan of sunscreen which is not safe, I know. I dislike the smell.
  • I travel a lot for my consulting business and I prefer the window seat and hate when people bring fast food onto the airplane. It stinks.
  • My business name was Green and Clean Mom, LLC and is currently being changed to SLP Connections and I have become an S Corporation.
  • I wrote a book for children to understand their moms blogging and being online all day. I’m a wee bit proud of it.
  • I used to be really heavy and recently I have lost 35 pounds. Sweet!
  • I have recently started collecting antiques. It is addicting.
  • I do not mind being called a mom blogger.

Other Important Stuff

  • Other people write here and I love them to pieces for it because I am all about other points of view.
  • Lots of people say I’m pretty cool to work with.
  • I’ve been mentioned a time or two online like ABC News, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and a few other places.
  • I like when people advertise on my site and my rates are very reasonable.
  • I like to help others and I’m available to speak at conferences, work with brands, agencies or noodle on something with you. I don’t really like to be taken out to lunch and have my brain picked though.
  • The FTC is serious and so I fully disclose my affiliations and relationships. It is just not right to be deceiving.
