One of my best friends and best mothers I know, Tammy Forsyth, has launched my favorite new blog, Jeep Momma. You have to read it.
What has been your favorite aspect of blogging so far?
I love it because the Leo in me thrives on attention, the blog is about me! I’ve been a stay at home mom for 14 years now, and the focus has always been on my kids. Now that they are growing older and more independent, they don’t need me as much. I was having a hard time adjusting. I had more time on my hands to think.
I realized I had been neglecting myself, physically and mentally. My blog is my motivator to be a better person, a healthier person and a happier person and is helping me to re-invent myself. I’m a very compassionate person, always wanting to help, and my blog gives me that outlet to share what I’ve learned with others
What do your sons think of having a blogging mom?
Of course they don’t outwardly tell me anything either way. But I’ve seen them showing it to their friends when I’m not around.
What are your goals for Jeep Momma?
I’m not really sure yet. It’s all still so new. Probably to have more people than just my friends checking out my blog. I would love to get noticed by Jeep someday too. Right now it’s just a fun way to express myself.
Should us other moms out there trade in our minivans, sedans and street SUVs for a Jeep?
I would say a definite yes. Getting a Jeep has brought back the fun in my life. Just running simple errands I used to despise, I now enjoy, especially the Jeep camaraderie. Getting that “Jeep Wave” always makes my day.
Plus, our family was stuck in a routine — we were all drifting apart. Now with all the technology it seems no one communicates face to face anymore. The Jeep has helped break up that routine. This past summer we took many short weekend adventure trips. It has brought us outdoors in the fresh air exercising and spending time — face to face — as a family.
However, if you are still carpooling it might be tough because the Jeep only seats three in the back. It might also be tough for a family of more than four. But I would definitely recommend — Jeep Wrangler is the way to go!
