I‘m Kesha! – graphic designer, self proclaimed love and relationship guru, and most importantly… mom to a set of adorable toddler twins. I’ve always felt that there was a huge void in regards to the depiction of fun and positive African American families within social media. We Got Kidz not only fills that void, but dares to bring a bit of snark, wit, and levity into the world of parenting.
We Got Kidz was started, in the beginning, to be a virtual album of sorts. I’ll be honest and say that I had absolutely no clue as to what I was doing. (“Blogging”?? What’s that? Sounds like something you do out in the woods.) I simply wanted a place for family and friends to come and see fun videos and pictures of my newborn twins.
Often times the husband and I would trip over a toy or have a particularly frightening diaper changing experience. The reality of the fact that we were now parents would hit us heavily during these moments. We’d look at each other and say with disbelief, “We got kids!” (grammatical inaccuracy and all).
I started to write about these personal experiences on my blog, and people loved it. I have a gift. What can I say? . From there, We Got Kidz (with a “z” for flava’) officially began; and it has since become a full-fledged lifestyle guide for the would-be “cool” parent.
We Got Kidz was recently named one of the top 50 Black Blogs for African Americans by AfroDaddy.com, and we’ve had features on the acclaimed news site DailyMail.co.uk, the social media juggernaut Buzzfeed.com, and parenting website authority ParentSociety.com. We’re currently in syndication on Ehow, and and can boast having attained a Google Page Rank of 4 and over 20,000 monthly unique visitors in less than 1 year time. We’re a site with an ever-growing following, and we’re proud of it. [Click for full media kit.]
Most of what you’ll read will be absolutely hilarious… or at least mildly amusing. The husband, kids, and I are just a quirky bunch by nature; so the stories we have to tell are, more often than not, hysterical. I personally spend most of my time walking that fine line between hip mom and fanny pack wearer. The hubby and I are desperate to maintain some sense of coolness. We want nothing more than to hold on to at least a shred of our funky-fresh personalities while we traverse the ups and downs of this crazy ride called parenthood.
Along our journey I’ll share dope videos, awesome parenting tips, juicy entertainment news, ‘slap yo’ momma’ recipes, contributed pieces from amazing guest bloggers along with any other interesting junk that pops into my brain or slides across my desk. My husband will be making appearances here and there – popping up to regale you with his silly antics. Ultimately, we’re here to help make your life as a parent just a tad bit easier and a little bit more entertaining.
Her current baby is WeGotKidz.com – a lovely mesh of a parenting and entertainment blog. She is also a regular contributor to BlackCelebKids.com and Technorati.com respectively. Kesha currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her lovely husband and twins Ari and Jaxon.
