At Floor Coverings International North Chicago, we love to bring you creative insight and perspectives from some of web’s most influential bloggers. Our latest interview features popular blogger Cool Mom Jamie. You can follow Jamie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I am a stay-at-home mom to my daughter Mickey, in addition to running CoolMomJamie.com which is a website for Millennial Moms. I attend parenting classes and lectures in addition to hosting a Mommy & Me class at my house once a week. When I’m not confessing my failures to the world on CoolMomJamie.com, I can be found either watching Game of Thrones episodes or playing basketball with my rec league team: The Shecago Bulls (currently 0-3 this season, as of press time).
What’s one type of flooring you use in your children’s room and why?
We use carpeting in her bedroom because it’s soft for her to crawl on!
Why did you decide to start a blog? What do you enjoy about blogging?
I decided to start a blog when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter – I was among the first of my friends to get pregnant and everyone had a lot of questions so I figured I’d just tell all my stories in one place!
Where do you find most of your inspiration?
My daughter is absolutely my muse: she teaches me things everyday and because I’m constantly learning, I have endless material to write about. And, frankly, it’s the mistakes that teach me the most and give me the best posts. I try to be transparent with my errors and my successes so that people can find a connection to the struggles and victories with along with us. At the end of the day, we all just want what’s best for our kids and are going to do wacky things trying to get there.
Can you explain a recent project you’ve been working on?
Recently my daughter and I appeared in a viral Buzzfeed Video that garnered over a million views:
And coming up next we will appear in collaborations with Awestruck, the Youtube Channel for Millennial Moms.
