Over the years I’ve met some really awesome people on Twitter. One of them is Amy Oztan AKA Selfish Mom. We both live in Brooklyn, and I can remember bonding when the Brooklyn tornado happened a couple of years ago.
Amy is awesome. I wrote her an email and asked if I could interview her for OS/NS Mom. She invited me over to her place in Clinton Hill so I could find out more about her and how she got into blogging.
I told her I’d love to come over and I even brought her a pumpkin banana chocolate chip muffin from Blue Sky Bakery!
After hanging out and talking with Amy, I think she should change her name to “Honest Mom.” She’s a genuine human being. We bonded over the fact that we’re both Libras who come from performing arts backgrounds.
Check out what she’s has to say about how she started Selfish Mom, how her daughter’s name wasn’t inspired by the movie Shrek, and how her last name is not a random city in Texas.
Amy is a real down-to-earth person. Her best piece of blogging advice to those of you starting out: be yourself!
