Formerly Mashed Potatoes Blog
**From May 2012 to December 2013 my blog was called Mashed Potatoes Blog, but I recently made a change in my blog site’s name (and URL address) to Mommy Problems. I didn’t want to delete this page just yet for the friends who have been following me when I was writing for Mashed Potatoes Blog. (Sincere apologies for any confusion!)
The following entry was from my Mashed Potatoes Blog’s days.
Formerly Mashed Potatoes Blog, blog title description:
“My blog name Mashed Potatoes (Blog) is very sentimental to me, as it was a family joke about my great craving for mashed potatoes during my third pregnancy with my baby Zhen.” -From my blog post “Saving (and Sharing) My Special Memories Through Blog Writing”
Mashed Potatoes derives from my pregnancy craving for homemade mashed potatoes when I was pregnant (2012) with my third baby Zhen-Marie (aka Zhen). I started blogging about my third pregnancy around April-May 2012, but I switched my blog’s focus to homeschooling when we started our homeschooling journey July 2013.
When I was pregnant with Zhen and blogging about my pregnancy, I wanted to choose a blog title which was unique to me, so I thought, “Why not name my blog after a food I crave the most?!” Mashed Potatoes!
It seemed my baby (and taste buds) had a great desire for mashed potatoes
and pizza and steak and jalapenos and sirloin burgers and Reese’s cups and sweet cakes. Yet, before I was pregnant, I hardly ever ate mashed potatoes! It should come as no surprise my baby Zhen now LOVES to eat mashed potatoes (and mashed sweet potatoes, too)!
So Mashed Potatoes just seemed fitting for the name of my pregnancy blog! Now, the name Mashed Potatoes is very sentimental to me, so I decided not to change it and keep the name when I made the switch to strictly blog about homeschooling.
Thanks for stopping by!
