You know her as Nurse Mommy, but did you know Stacey Hatton also has a humor column in The Kansas City Star newspaper, is co-author of “I Just Want to Pee Alone” and the sequel, and plays a blogger on TV on the NBC morning show, KC Live! Impressive, I know. She’s also the only person I’ve ever heard use the term “all the livelong day,” in all seriousness, which is equally as impressive.
A former pediatric nurse, present-ish mom and future menopausal pole dancer, Nurse Mommy always investigates the “funny bone.” Now I’m turning the investigation on her.
Why did you decide to start your blog, and did you have any idea what you were getting yourself into?
At first I was afraid. I was petrified. No wait that’s something else. I was bored. Oh, and sleep deprived and lactating.
How long have you been at this racket?
I’m embarrassed to say. There are so many bloggers who have been at blogging for a minute and BOOM they are on Dr. Oz talking about their swollen spleens and psoriasis from all the fame and glamour – me…not so much. It’s been freaking 5 years and I still hear crickets in my comment section. I’m really not bitter. Really.
Do you have a blogging schedule? If so, what is it? Does it help? Does it change? Do you want to stomp on it, and tell people to go away – you have enough to do?
My blogging schedule is to bathe, feed and water the children, give my hubby some boom-boom, and then the rest of the time is on my keyboard. I usually get 2 posts up a week. I find that my readers like Tuesdays and Thursdays, even though I blogged Monday, Wednesday and Fridays for three years. What can I say? I’m blonde. It’s a disability.
