Hi there, I’m Amy, founder of Amy Ever After, Filming in Brooklyn, and Selfish Mom (that’s my Selfish Mom header up there). I’m also a freelance writer and podcaster. I spend a lot of time on Twitter and Facebook, but here are some other contact options if you need to get a hold of me. I also love making videos and taking pictures (this is a relatively new Instagram account, so I would love a follow!!). I’m also on Pinterest, and pretty addicted to TikTok (don’t let anybody tell you TikTok is just kids doing dances!!)
I’ve been blogging since 2006, first on a local real estate blog, then on my long-neglected but much-loved Filming In Brooklyn, then Selfish Mom and right here. I’ve co-created and co-hosted two popular podcasts. I’ve written for many websites, such as Tom’s Guide, Laptop Magazine, Redbook, Motto, Garnet News, and NJ Family. I’ve been quoted on numerous news sites, including the New York Times, CNN, ABC News, and MSNBC. I’ve appeared on The Today Show, the WPIX Morning Show, and HuffPost Live. Time Out New York Kids named me a Blogger to Watch. Working Mother named me one of the fifteen most powerful moms in social media. And a while back I was named Funniest Mom on Twitter by Babble.com (they removed the article after some restructuring, but The Wayback Machine still has it).
I love to bake, sing, and garden. And sleep. Man, do I love naps. I have a teenage daughter, an adult son, and a husband, none of whom want to be talked about on my blog, ever. So forget I mentioned them. Seriously, move along. This never happened.
Want to hire me? Find out more on my Work With Me page. Want to contact me? You can do that on my Contact Page. Want links to those articles and appearances I mentioned up there? You can find those on my Media Page.
Thanks for stopping by! And hey, while you’re here, sign up for my newsletter! You’ll get my latest posts at the end of the week, plus subscriber-only goodies.
