FEATURED IN PAPER'S "FAMILY" SECTION
The Fumbling Mom, the humorous parenting blog of country superstar JO DEE MESSINA, will be featured in The Tennessean, Nashville's most prominent and prestigious newspaper.
The news outlet will feature content from JO DEE’s blog in its "Family" section starting today (Thursday May 24) and periodically going forward. As a result of this ongoing partnership, MESSINA--a mother to three-year-old Noah and 16-week-old Jonah--will provide stories, tips, and more for The Tennessean, becoming a significant contributor to launching the publication’s newly designed “Family” section. It will be in the print publication as well as online here.
About The Fumbling Mom and its success, JO DEE says, "I do the best I can as a mom. Some days are hard, some days are easy. All days are rewarding. I try to write about things I learn or observe with a humorous approach for my blog. I find it fulfilling, as do my readers. I am not an expert. They know that. I am just like them, fumbling my way through motherhood, hoping I don't mess it up."
Since its launch in January 2012, MESSINA's The Fumbling Mom continues to enthrall readers with its heartfelt and hilarious stories and helpful parenting tips. The singer also invites fans into her world with personal photos of her family, bringing the audience along for the ride on the road and at home. Balancing parenting and a successful music career, it's the perfect combination of wisdom from a working mom and shine from a star. Some of her tips include how to set attainable goals, dealing with sleep deprivation, and other ever-important questions as well as healthy recipes for the kids to enjoy. The site is best described as "a humorous look at a working mom who doesn't have all the answers...just some of them."
Just like everything else JO DEE does, The Fumbling Mom is bound to resonate with fans everywhere.
