Mommy Blogger Taking The Net By Storm

If your looking for a parent who has made a career from blogging, then check out Holly Homer’s  work on the web. I admire Holly because even though she’s been successful she has not let it go to her head. She still treats all bloggers and parents as an equal to her regardless of where they are in their journey. Plus she has made it clear that she doesn’t know everything. She has the ability to make her audience feel like they are on the learning journey with her even though she may be the one teaching a particular skill or knowledge.

Where It All Began

She started out her online career with her blog on June Cleaver Nirvana where we are welcomed to read about her home life experiences. Then since her beloved hometown is Dallas she created She is Dallas and DFW Bloggers with other bloggers to cover area attractions.

Sharing the Parenting Passion

Holly Homer 2As a mother of three very active boys, Holly is the true blue definition of a Mommy blogger.  Kids Activity Blog is one of the blogs that covers her and two other bloggers writing about various activities they’ve done with their kids. Plus you can find her discussing parenting topics in her Parenting Lounge which airs on Tuesday Evening at 9pm. Trust me when I say that these hangouts have become a great source for laughter and fun times.

Sharing the Blogging Knowledge

Holly is a down to earth woman who loves to share her knowledge with others. She not only shares her own personal experiences as a parent, but loves to help other bloggers. She is also employed by Business 2 Blogger. Her newsletters are always filled with many tips and tricks of the trade. She has  created many blogger advice videos on her Youtube account. (She also has other parenting videos too!)

Personal Questions Answered

Question One: What is your biggest issue with working from home while trying to raise your kids?

Her answer: My biggest challenge is not allowing work to creep into everything.  It is my first impulse to write about everything we do and record every moment together, but that takes me out of the moment of LIFE.  To combat that, I really try and keep office hours for computer time – most of those are before the boys get up.  I also really work at NOT taking pictures or thinking about how I would write something for the majority of what we do together.  My boys didn’t ask to be the kids of a blogger and I need to respect that not everything is a blog post.

Question Two: What is your absolute favorite activity to do with your family and/or kids?

Her answer: My boys are in the middle of a four square craze.  We have made a grid on our driveway with chalk and have modified the rules so all of us can play “competitively” including my youngest {and even grandma}.  That is really fun to play since I was a huge 4 Square player as a child.  But my absolute favorite thing to do as a family is in the evening, we turn off all the lights in the house and everyone grabs a laser gun.  We play team laser tag – mom/dad against the kids.  The kids have improved a lot in their strategy and now it is almost impossible to win!

Connect With this Mommy Blogger

Holly is all about making solid connections and friendships. Despite all of this blogging activity, she still has time to make connections with many people online through Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest.

  1. This is the first time I have learned about Holly, although I did stumble upon her June Cleaver blog once or twice. I enjoyed checking out her other blogs and connecting on facebook. I’m just wondering how she finds time to write for all those blogs and do the other things! She must be one busy woman. I could learn a lot from her. Thanks for sharing.

    • Robin,
      I was amazed to find out about all the things that she was involved in as well because I knew her from Business to Blogger and from all the Google Hangouts that she’s hosted. Plus I have subscribed to her Kids Activity Blog that she’s a part of. I’m impressed by how together she always seems in her hangouts. Plus she always responds to emails rather quickly too.
      I’m learning something new from her and her tribe quite often. Glad you enjoyed learning about her.

    • Hi Robin,
      Thanks so much for your sweet words. The truth is that I have a lot of help on my sites. Kids Activities Blog has quite a few contributors because there is no way that would keep going if it were just me! In fact, this summer I am combining several of the sites just to calm things down a bit.

    Holly is an extremely busy blogger with all the blogs she has or is involved with, I don’t see how she does it. I will have to make it a point to check out her YouTube channel for some tips, as well as her Kids Activity Blog. We have nieces and nephews and always need cool ideas for entertaining them. Thanks for sharing Crystal

    • Thanks Debora! I do stay busy, but I have a lot of help. It is one of the things I love about the internet – connects you with people who are REALLY good at stuff. It is my thought that blogging has become the replacement for party product sales – instead of hosting a party to sell candles or makeup in your home, moms are turning to blogging to make a few extra bucks that month. It is an exciting time.

    • There are definitely plenty of wonderful ideas of things to do with your nieces and nephews on that site. :)

  3. Oh, I just love Holly! She is so down to earth in person, too. She’s really inspirational. She is certainly one of the women that I look up to as far as “blogging success”, and since I have met her in real life, I have seen that it’s not a dream – it’s a reality! I can reach my goals, just as she has reached hers! :)
    I love, LOVE her Hangouts. She has some excellent Hangouts with blogging tips.

    • Thanks sooo much Jenn! I really appreciate your sweet words and support. I feel so lucky to have met so many amazing people…and who knew that you could host a talk show from your living room without spending a dime {or talking someone into financing you?}. Life is good!

    • Jenn,

      I’m glad to hear that you agree with me in my opinion of Holly. I love her hangouts too.

  4. Thanks Crystal! This was overwhelmingly nice of you to feature me this way. I really appreciate it.

  5. Crystal,

    Thanks for introducing me to Holly! I love to read about successful mommy bloggers. (I’m always a little bit in awe of how they get it all done and do it so well!)

    Seriously excited to try the indoor laser tag with my kids, too. What a wonderful idea! :)
