This Post Brought to You By Vodka.

Okay. So. I have a few things I would like to talk about. It’s no secret that I draw my inspiration for blogging from real life, conversations I have with my friends who live in the computer, my best friend oh – AND VODKA.

Tonight is a diet cheat night. Because I’m kicking ass with my fitness and weight loss. I’ve lost 7 pounds so far. I joined a gym. I’m fucking serious about this zombie race, y’all. I’m actually training for it. It’s happening. Where was I? Oh yeah, things.

So one of the things on my Twenties Bucket List is to go to a live concert. WELL, my friends. WELL. It just so happens that the Avett Brothers are playing with Old Crow Medicine Show in May. These are two bands that I’m pretty newly acquainted with. I want to go to this show. But I’m afraid to, because I’m really kind of holding out hope that Mumford & Sons or Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will tour this year. But I don’t KNOW that they will, because Mumford & Sons have been in the damn UK FOREVER.

Anyway. It’s like fate is handing me one of my list items on a silver platter and saying, “Here you go! Come to this hippie show. You will love it.”

I had something else to say, but then forgot. Oh yeah!

I’ve been thinking about re-branding the blog. I’ve been Mommy Boots for almost three years now and I wonder if it’s time for a change. I worry that I get thrown into a certain category because my blog has “Mommy” in the title. Not that there’s anything wrong with having a “mom blog” but let’s face it. That term is kind of heinous and condescending and also, I don’t really fit into the “mom blog” niche. I talk about vodka and say fuck all the time. So what the hell would I re-brand myself as, anyway? “Mom Who Says Fuck and Likes Vodka”? That kind of has a ring to it. Would you all still read and love me if I re-branded? What if I re-branded as a velociraptor, or a komodo dragon? Because those two things are mean.

This post has no point. At all.

Vodka.

  1. I’ll always love you. Especially if you promise to keep dropping f-bombs like they’re hot.

  2. I’ll always adore you. But here’s a thought about rebranding — I say screw it and stay mommyboots. You are you and don’t be scared away from using mommy in your branding. I think you are good for the ‘mommy blogging’ world. BECAUSE you say fuck a lot and admit your vodka loving ways! But the raptor would be cool. Just my two cents babe. If you want a change, do it — just don’t do it because of outside forces!!

  3. Vodkaboots! Mommyraptor!
    I agree white those other comments…I would read your blog no matter what you name it.

    Fuck yeah! <3

  4. I’m always a fan of re-branding because i’m obsessed with designing blogs….i say do it! But….aren’t all mommy blogs powered by booze and swearing anyway? If not, I’m not excited about becoming a mother anymore…

  5. How about “The Drinking, Cursing Mother Blogger”? Or maybe, “Yes I’m An Effin’ Mom…Now Hand Me The Vodka”? Hahahaha

  6. Or just plain “Hand This Mother Some Damn Vodka”. :)

  7. I find the term “mommy blog” very patronizing and I think 99.9% of women do, too. Ever notice how women always say “mommy blog” in quotes. It’s because we’re being ironic when we use it, whereas the rest of the world is saying “oh, isn’t that cute, the little woman thinks she has a creative outlet. well, if it keeps her happy…” ugh. (I swear, I’m not PMSing today, even though it sounds like I am.)
    I also think that by having the world Mommy in your blog title, it does give outsiders a pre-conceived opinion about what your blog is. The Million Dollar Question is: “Do you care what others think about your blog branding?” The answer to that is the answer to whether or not you should rebrand.
    As for the vodka and f-bombs, there’s really two types of moms: those who cuss and drink and those who want to. So, don’t let the alcohol and profanities sway your decision.

  8. This is only your second post I’ve looked at and I do not have children, so I have no idea what it’s like to be “mommy boots” but I was drawn in with vodka.

    Mmmm. Vodka.

    I’m a college student. I like to blog about random crap. It’s nice to meet you. :]

  9. I like Mommy Boots. Kind of poking fun at “soft, squishy, cute” with “army boots.” You got on your big-girl panties and your mommy boots.

    Also, if you change your name, I will no longer remember who you are. This happens every time the bloggers I love change their names. Every time I see it in my feed, I think “who’s that?” Then I go and read and maybe halfway through I think “that’s right …. kid named Nellie …. likes barbershop … this was Mommy Boots, right?” I hate it when that happens, so my vote is stick with what you’ve got.
