Meet Nashville Blogger and Content Marketing Pro Jamie Reeves

Jamie in NYC


New York City, 2010, during BlogHer. Photo by the fabulous Amy Allen Clark, Mom Advice. Note to self, I probably need to update this photo but I love it!


Welcome! I’m a 49-year-old Nashville working mom who loves social media, fashion, travel, rescue dogs, and a glass of red wine or margarita on the rocks (preferably while at the beach.) I launched my blog in 2005. My first tagline was Blogging Between Deadlines and Diapers Changes and my blog has evolved from one of the first mom blogs to more of a lifestyle blog. Like you, I try to juggle it all – work, motherhood, marriage, carpooling, homework and hormones.


Looking for my business? Please visit Little Black Dress Marketing. I can put together a custom proposal for your business and offer a full suite of content marketing services (blog and social media management, Facebook ad management, PR services, influencer outreach and more.)

I have two amazing daughters, Miss C and Miss A. Both my girls are teenagers now and when I started this blog, Miss A was a baby and Miss C was just three. Let’s not go into how “this day of Facebook” notifications can wreck me. Pass the tissue!


Although I live in the suburbs, I’m really a country girl at heart. When I was a kid I had pet chickens, read lots of Nancy Drew and couldn’t wait to get my driver’s license so I could cruise “town” with my friends. I’m a Leo, barely 5 ft. 2, and afraid of heights and opening cans of biscuits. I met my husband in high school and he puts up with my many blonde moments, hence my blog’s name.



I blog about everything from parenting to our beloved mutts to whatever else tickles my fancy, such as fashion and travel. I’m definitely not at a perfect mom or Martha Stewart. You’ll find more dog hair than DIY at our house!


I am definitely a jeans, t-shirts, and boots mom, although I once got my glamour girl on in Beverly Hills.

I enjoy partnering with brands and I reach an audience of moms who wield major purchasing power! Email me at blondemomblog@gmail.com if you are interested in a sponsored post and click here for my media kit. Every once in a while I get out of the house (Ha!) and venture to a blogger event here in Music City.

I love to write about family travel and have reviewed fantastic destinations like beautiful Los Cabos Sandestin and St. Augustine, Florida. We’ve also enjoyed local Tennessee travel experiences, such as Wilderness at the Smokies and Gatlinburg Falls Resort. A few years ago we traveled to Orange Beach, Alabama and fell in love with the area. Afterwards I returned for a girlfriends’ getaway experience.

    Your husband tells me that you are adept at WordPress. Our website need some corrections (i.e. links that link to nowhere) as well as a few changes I would like to make with that is just text oriented. I have been on our admin site and have managed to do the simple text corrections in the body of the pages but it is the template that I cannot figure out how to do.

    If you were interested in working on these with us, how much would you need per hour?

    I hope we can work something out.

    Thanks, Susie Dudley

      I think the part of this exchange that strikes me the most is the “I need it pronto!” argument. It isn’t as though auditions regularly creep up out of nowhere (though they certainly can). I find myself reading this as “I put off preparing for an audition and I think I should be allowed to steal your work to make up for my own procrastination.” I don’t want to sound overly critical of Eleanor, but thinking other people should give up their rights to cover your mistakes is not an attitude that gets you anywhere in life.

    Hey Jamie,

    Remember those cute t-shirts at Apricot Lane on Highway 100 … before it moved/closed? The ones with the sewn-on appliques such as a cross, flower, peace sign, etc.? Have you written about – or remember – the local mom who makes these? I wore one to a soccer game last weekend and I was mobbed by fellow moms who wanted one. I didn’t know where to send them but thought you might remember them – or know.

    Have a great weekend …

    About Zipit Bedding
     
    As any mom knows, sheets, blankets and comforters are easily entangled and hard to keep neat. ButZipit BeddingTM connects a Fitted Sheet and Comforter via ZIPPERS to form ONE EASY-TO-USE unit (just like a sleeping bag). Now the daily chore of making and changing a bed is FUN, FAST & EASY.
    
What Moms are Saying about Zipit BeddingTM:
    
”The magic comes when you make the bed and see how easy it is that anyone can do it! Just zip and go! I think Zipit Bedding has really found the perfect thickness for the comforter that works for varying temperatures. I really like the designer print too. It doesn’t scream “little kids ONLY” and it’s sophisticated enough I think teenagers and adults would be okay with it too.” -Ashley Reynolds, mommy blogger (thereynoldsmom.blogspot.com)
    
“This product has changed our lives…Honestly the inventor of this should win an award for helping me regain my sanity when it comes to making and changing all my kids beds. I love it for how easy it is to change, and my 3-year-old likes it best of all now that he feels like a big boy that he can make his own bed. I will be telling all my friends about this.” - Carrie, AZ - working mother of two

“Zipit Bedding is such a brilliant idea! My kids’ beds were ALWAYS a mess in the morning – and they were constantly asking me to fix their beds so they can sleep comfortably. Whenever I told them to just do it themselves, they always said “I can’t do it as good as you!” Now, thanks to Zipit Bedding, they CAN do it themselves, just as good as I would. And it’s EASY!! Thank you, ZIPIT Bedding for making it easier for my kids (and me!).”- Lisa, CA, wife and working mother of two

    Warmly,
    Jennifer MacDonald and Hayley Carr

    The Story of Zipit Bedding
    
Zipit BeddingTM began when Jennifer MacDonald, a mom and a veteran in the advertising industry, had an “Aha!” moment as she watched her sons clean up their room after a sleepover by simply zipping up their sleeping bags and voila!... the once messy bedroom was clean! She realized immediately that a zippered bedding unit – as simple as a sleeping bag, yet designed to fit a mattress and look like normal bedding – would revolutionize the bedding industry.
     
    Jennifer teamed up with her sister Hayley Carr, a seasoned entrepreneur, and the two developed the product. They were later joined by Paul Lauer, the CEO of a successful entertainment marketing company, who contacted them after having a similar idea.
     
    Together, Jennifer, Hayley and Paul are launching the Zipit BeddingTM revolution.

Married to my high school sweetheart-27 years now and a country girl at heart:). Sorry if that’s TMI but what are the odds? Reach out to me by email if a product review is in line with your blog. Thanks!

    Hi,

    I work for JW23casting in Los Angeles, and we are working with a major brand doing an event on halloween around the Nashville area. It is a really fun and paid opportunity for families. I was hoping you could share this opportunity on your blog page or to anyone you think may be interested.

This event is sponsored by a family friendly national brand and is by invitation only. Your family will receive a $100 gift card per person, plus gift bags for your participation. There is nothing for sale and you won’t need to bring any money with you. This event is only to get your feedback on the experience. Selected families may even be asked to give their opinion on camera.

    While it is Halloween themed, this event will not include scary/graphic costumes, ‘haunted house’ type attractions, or alcohol. Your family will be given a specific time to arrive.

    Jamie,

    I’m on the fundraising event committee for a non-profit in Nashville, Renewal House, that helps moms with abuse and addiction issues get help and safety, all while keeping the moms and their children together. We are having a red carpet fundraising event on April 25th at The Reserve at Fat Bottom Brewing in West Nashville. We know that every mom needs a night out with her girls. We are asking everyone who can to consider combining a special night for themselves with an organization that’s helping other moms in our own community.

    Everyone can get more information and purchase tickets to the event through the link below:

    http://www.renewalhouse.org/Support_Us/Ladies’_Night_Out/

    Would you please consider posting about this event on your blog and social media pages?

    Thank you!

    I enjoy you because of your own effort on this site. My mum really likes doing investigations and it’s really easy to see why. A number of us notice all regarding the dynamic ways you make effective guidelines on the blog and even encourage response from the others about this idea so my simple princess has always been studying a whole lot. Have fun with the remaining portion of the new year. You are always conducting a tremendous job.

  12. Shannon says:

    I love your site. I stumbled upon it as I was browsing mom blogs. I will be bookmarking it and be coming back to read more. As a mom blogger myself, I love to connect with like-minded people.
