So you want to know more about me, huh?

My name is Bridgette and I am the creator/writer/mastermind behind The Not-So-Blog.  Because I am a Lab Tech by day, I have a natural inclination to inquire about how things work and how I can make them work for me and my family.  I started blogging in July of 2008 to discover the hottest items to make this working Mom’s life easier!  I never intended for my blog to really take off (let alone have loyal readers!), hence the name The Not-So-Blog. As it turns out, I really enjoy writing and my blog started to evolve into a real life blog. Now, I am a The Experimental Mommy.  If you would like to see testimonials from past sponsors, please visit my sponsor testimonial page.

My blog was featured in the LA Times and you can see me in action on the Good Morning New Orleans show on ABC 26! Recently, I was honored to be mentioned in the new book “Mom Blogging for Dummies” by Wendy Piersall.

In addition, my writing has been featured on both KRAFT and Nestle Family microsites.  I am also Brand Ambassadors for Pampers, Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup portion packs, LifeLock, Whirlpool, Microsoft Windows, Ubisoft and Constructive Playthings.

I am the co-founder of social media consulting and blog outreach company along with Cecelia from Underwear in My Kitchen.  By creating The Double Duty Divas, we have assembled some of the most reliable, thorough, and trafficked review bloggers on the Internet!  Our network has grown and now consists of more than 1700 bloggers and we now offer to manage product review/giveaway campaigns, Ambassador programs and hold interesting Twitter parties for our clients.  Recently, we have managed campaigns for Pampers, Dreft, Luvs, Old Spice, Aflac, Dawn and Cascade.

From the Double Duty Divas, LLC grew our latest venture, iRetreat Blog Conference (formerly Reviewer’s Retreat Blog Conference).  In partnership with the Hershey Lodge, we offer the perfect way for brands and bloggers to form mutually beneficial long lasting relationships.  Our fourth annual conference will be held in June of 2014.

Personally, I am a full time Mom who works outside of the home as a lab technician (I am also a full blown science geek).  I have two beautiful daughters (ages 6 and 9) who help me with reviews whenever possible.  Actually, the decided to start a brand new blog for kids called KidsXtreme.  My husband and I live happily in Southeast Louisiana.
