The Walmart Moms… originally knows as the Walmart Eleven Moms.
I was not one of the original 11… I was number 12. I was so excited as I was just starting out on this website. I had blogged for several years prior, but it was a personal blog while the hubby was in the USMC, and WordPress didn’t exist when I first started. Mommy Brain Reports had been started to write reviews on places we went to, and things we used, as parents of twins. We didn’t know where it was going to go.
I received an email, asking me if I was interested in being a part of the group, YES!! I was most definitely interested… I didn’t know what all it entailed just yet, but I was very excited to see where it went. That was back in 2008. Yes… 8 years ago. Since joining the program, we have been to conferences, met celebrities, attended some awesome events, and learned so much about vendors and Walmart, as a company. We had gone through a few leaders of the group on the Walmart Marketing team… each with their own ideas and ways of utilizing our group to it’s fullest potential… It was great being a blogger for Walmart, since I already shopped there, and was able to write from personal experience, using my own ideas and creativity.
But… as they say.. all things must come to an end. Last month, we learned that the Walmart marketing team is ending the long running program, and choosing to use their marketing dollars in other ways. While we are sad, we also see this as a chance to reinvent ourselves, and to work with other companies in ways we couldn’t before.
I thank everyone who I’ve worked with over the last 8 years… It’s a program that will always be in my heart… It’s grown so much and provided so many opportunities over the years, and I am grateful.
So… Here’s what you’ll see.. In the next couple of months, as the program winds down, there will be more variety, and maybe even some changes to the type of posts. I’d like to get more into YouTube, and have a little more fun on here..
