Hi there! My name is Zelma, welcome to my brand new blog! Before we start, let me tell you a bit about myself. I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and aside from a brief move to Caguas (literally the town just south of San Juan), and the year I spent in New Jersey as an exchange student in college, I have always lived here. I’m 44 years old – I don’t hide my age, because why? Carlos and I have been married for almost 19 years, and Daniel is our 11-year-old son. These two guys are my everything. ❤️
I am a Disney lover, a planner addict, and have been a classical choir singer for almost 40 years. I am a horrible cook, but I love to bake. I’m trying to eat healthier for me and my family, so baking actually helps, because I get to treat my family with better quality ingredients. I’m also very much into my slow cooker and freezer cooking, because, again, horrible cook. 😉
My blogging history
I have been blogging on and off since 2005, but it wasn’t until 2009 that I had my first official blog. It was called “Zelma’s Workshop”, and even though it is no more (it got a virus and I had to shut it down… sad), I loved it. It was my first experience as a legit blogger, and I learned a lot about the blogging industry and community in the US and Canada. In 2011 I decided to switch gears and create a new Spanish-language blog just for my local community. It’s called “YoSoyMami“, and for the past 7 years it has been my baby. We have a very active community on Facebook, and thanks to this experience, I have grown and learned so much more about blogging and social media.
Now it’s time to write a new chapter. I miss writing in English, and since my original blog doesn’t speak to my current lifestyle, I decided to start fresh. Enter “Mami on the go“. This is something that speaks to me, because as moms, we are always on the go, whether we’re hauling kids around, feeding everyone, or keeping our house from falling apart. We also love to travel and see new places and cultures. ✈️
So this is me in a nutshell. I hope you like it, let me know what you think in the comments below. If you have any questions, or want to work with me, I’m always available at mamionthegoblog (at) gmail.com.
