Scroll down to read my official bio. But keep reading to find out more about me and what this blog is all about.
Hey, there! I am Dr. Marcella Wilson and welcome to my blog!
When I grew up, I always thought I’d live in a big city like New York City and be a supermodel (cuz I’m super tall!!!). Well, I did live in New York City for a minute while I tried my hand at modeling. But that whole supermodel thing didn’t pan out quite like I thought it would. Mainly because I fell head over heels in love with computers – and my soon-to-be husband. I adored computer so much that I ended up going to grad school and got my master’s and doctoral degrees in Computer Science. And me and my new hubby set out to start our new life and create a family in suburbia.
I have been happily married for over a decade and am a proud mama to three girls, including a set of twins. Trust and believe that someone is always crying in my house – most of the time it’s me, lol! Just kidding! Well, not really, but anyway…
I am a Information Systems professor and mommy blogger. Once I went back to grad school, my goal was to become a professor. I knew it was an awesome, flexible job that is great for mommies. However, I had no intentions of becoming a mommy blogger. This blogging stuff just all kinda happened accidentally.
When I was home after having my twins, I decided to start blogging as a way to stay current in my industry. Much to my surprise, people started reading my blog. But I was really shocked when TV producers and reporters wanted to interview me for tech stories they were covering. Pretty soon, I began appearing on television and in the media regularly. You can see all the press I’ve done HERE.
I loved working with the media but I was conflicted. I had 3 small children at home and I was traveling a lot – sometimes at a moment’s notice – for media appearances. I was tired and exhausted all the time. I really just wanted to be home with my girls.
Right around the same time, many of my friends and acquaintances began asking me to help them design websites, help them with social media and start a blog for their business. Others would call and ask me questions about blogging or want me to consult for them. So because of this steady stream of work I began to get, I decided to move away from technology and began to focus my blog on helping moms create successful blogs so they can stay at home with their family and create the life they want to live. It was awesome because I could do all of this in the comfort of my own home.

What This Blog is NOT About
This blog is not about how to get rich quick. Yes, I make money blogging and so do many other bloggers. However, this blog teaches you how to use your blog as a way to advertise and market your skills, services and products online to get clients and customers. I also talk about affiliate marketing and side hustles as a way to make money. But in no way am I promising that you will make tons of money just by blogging. I believe that having skills pays the bills. If you think you can make lots of money overnight by blogging, you are in the wrong business!
Also this is not a lifestyle mommy blog. I may talk about my kids and fashion here and there. But the main purpose of my blog is to help moms who feel like they don’t have enough time to start a blog or it will be too techy or complicated to set up or run, get started.
You’re in the right place!
