The First Official Meeting Of The Not Blessed Mama Haters Club

I was reading an article in the New York Times the other day about super popular, famous, rich mama bloggers- namely Dooce and The Pioneer Woman. Two things became very clear:
1. These ladies don't give you the whole picture.
2. They earn boat loads of money.

I am ready to remedy these things on Not Blessed Mama. 

To address number one, I am willing to give you more transparency into my life. After all, it is my freakin' tagline- keepin' it real. I'm not going to share my monthly cycle with you or anything, but I would like to show you this:

This is my living room, on a bad day. And sadly this isn't even the worst. There are sprinkles on the floor, air beds and couch cushions strewn about, dirty clothes and towels everywhere. We had taken a road trip that day, and well, that doesn't even really matter- it was just a mess. So when I say my house is a mess, you can believe me. This is it. This is me. We're a mess! Don't call CPS!

And to address number two. It seems that with popularity and fame and fortune comes..... haters. Lots and lots of haters. After reading about Dooce and her "Monetize The Hate" section of her site, I did a quick google search. And, WOAH. Up pop not only a million web sites or blogs professing their hate, but whole websites dedicated to slamming on Dooce or  The Pioneer Woman.
So, I guess if I want to be rich and famous and rake in millions of bucks, I need some haters. I did receive a few hate comments on my breastfeeding post, but apparently that wasn't enough. I'm still broke. 
Now, mind you- I only have 71 followers, so let's start the hating out easy, shall we. Maybe you can just tell your friends how much you hate me, or complain to your mom's group. "Did you see Not Blessed Mama's living room? How could someone live in such conditions?" "Not Blessed Mama thinks she's so hilarious, but I only find her moderately amusing." And so on.
When the money starts rolling in, I am definitely not going to forget the little people. Because Not Blessed Mama loves you. 
Thank you. 


  1. Totally hate all of this :)
    Glad I found your site.... Oh wait no I'm not... How did you get a pic of my living room?

    Visiting from Monday Mingle.

  2. Haha! Could not help but laugh-love it! New follower from Tough Cookie Momma.

    Take care!

  3. Oh my gosh I mean really, what were you doing when your kids made this mess, what kind of parent are you?!

  4. Oh thank you, thank you all! I can feel my bank account swelling as you type!
    Very funny, Monkey Mama. ;)

  5. I hate that I love you so much.

    I tried.


  6. How can I hate you when I'm cracking up? (Laughing. Well, I'm cracking up in other ways too, but you already knew that.)

    What. A. Great. Post.

    I'm running now to tell all my friends to hate you, and to find out how you managed to get a picture of my house without my permission.

  7. I thought that was a picture of my living room. It basically looks like that at the moment.

    Yeah, I've had some haters before too. I just delete the comments, which infuriates the haters even more.

  8. You have a following? And haters? :O0

    I'm jealous. :0( I mean.. er.. a hater. Ya, that's it. Ya. YA!

    And I'm gonna go tell my Mom's Group all about ... it.. ya.. ummmmm. That isn't gonna work, is it? :0(

    Ok, now I'm startin' to hate you. :0\

    Nope. Still not workin'. You're too cute to hate. Sorry. Tried. '0)

  9. My living room often looks like yours so I guess I can't be one of your haters. Sorry.

  10. I'm so glad you had the guts to post the picture of your living room. Mine looks a lot like that, but I never want to admit it!!

  11. You have no idea how much I appreciate your love, hate and support, ladies.
    It did take some courage to show the world my sprinkle encrusted floor. But I'm glad I did.

    Just came upon your site from a friends weekly blog. Thanks for this post. I needed to see that pic of your living room. It gave me hope. Today after my toddler scribbled all over the white kitchen cupboard with black permanent marker, I cried. I realized the only way to beat it was to join it, So I permanent markered the whole section black. That's how my heart felt for a moment. Reading your blog gave me moment of clarity. Thanks.

  13. Jennifer, I really appreciate your comment! It's good to know that we're not alone, in the good and BAD (and really bad, like when your kid Sharpies the house). If you have a site, leave me the link!

  14. Ha! Some how I missed this post until today, think this pic is fantastic!!! Thanks for keeping it real.

  15. You're a horrible, horrible person and I hope you make a ton of money from my nasty statements. So there.

    BTW, I read that article and was thinking a lot of the same things. Great minds.:)


If you're happy and you know it, leave a comment.
