Hi. I’m Sommer and this is my blog and my business. I had no clue when I started this blog in 2007 it would become my online home that I try to keep it tidy, sorry if it is messy at times. This is where I share bits and pieces of my life but also my personal journey of parenting, motherhood, being wife, trying to live greener, healthier and being an entrepreneur and woman who is learning to love herself and appreciate the World around. (This includes good wine, company, food and travel!) I’m juggling everything but I do my best each day and that is all I can do. I try to be green. I try to live healthy. I try to do it all. Some days I succeed and some days I fall short. In the end, I tried. I hope you do the same.

Try.

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. It must be good because I write for Stone Temple Consulting as an Subject Matter Expert (SME) for Home Depot. My work is featured on Mother Earth News and several sites throughout the web.
  • I always have bruises. My grandma said I needed to eat more bananas but really I am just a klutz.
  • I mostly enjoy warmth and sunshine. I love the sun on my shoulders.
  • I travel a lot for my consulting business and I used to prefer the window seat but I know like the aisle seat. I don’t use the word hate often but I hate it when people bring fast food onto the airplane. It stinks and is rude.
  • 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 am continually learning to love myself, be a better parent and keep my weight off. Weight loss and weight management is a continual struggle for me.
  • I struggle with insomnia and anxiety and i’m open about this and it sucks.
  • I have recently started collecting antiques. It is addicting.
  • I do not mind being called a mom blogger. SHOCKER I know but I really don’t care.

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.
