This Little Miggy Stayed Home: About


This Little Miggy || About
Welcome! My name is Miggy and I stay home. I like to blog about life, special needs, my artwork and the occasional DIY.  I also blog a lot about my family--my husband B, and our three daughters Big SisterLamp and baby Zuzu. (Note: These are not my children's real names. Phew! Right?

My husband and I have been married for over 12 years. We met, dated in and married after knowing each other all of 8 months. Two weeks after our wedding we moved in New York City where my husband started dental school and I wondered, "What in the world have I gotten myself into?" Let's just say, it was a lot of change at once. One month after we were married my husband announced that he started a blog for us. A what? Like many young newlyweds of our day we were sharing the small snippets of our life that we thought our friends and family would enjoy hearing about. Gradually my husband started blogging less and less, and I started blogging more and more and eventually this blog became my sole endeavor. Little did I know that this blog would become a major source of creativity, stress relief, a place to celebrate, a place to mourn, and especially a place connect. Over the years as we've added 3 girls to our brood, and have moved from New York to Ohio to Texas and back to Ohio I credit this blog, and the invention of ice cream, for keeping my sanity loosely in place.

Many of you have come to my blog because of our daughter Lamp who was born with a condition called microgastria and limb reduction complex. You can read more about our journey under Lamp LinksAbout a year after Lamp was born I started a series on my blog called The Special Needs Spotlight where I interview other families who have special needs children and individuals with special needs about their journey. To date I have interviewed over 200 special needs families and disabled individuals. The spotlight has definitely become the heart of my blog and I'll be forever grateful for the people who have allowed me to share their stories. 

Also, please look out for my first children's book that aims to teach small children about disability in March of 2019.

Sponsored Posts and Partnerships: 

To keep this little blog of mine running I also participate in partnerships with brands and products that are a natural fit for me and the blog. I have relationships with a few different media companies as well as partnerships with individual brands. Long before I was being paid to promote a specific brand I was sharing products, companies and services I love, use and enjoy. I will never promote a brand that I don't believe in and all opinions expressed are my own. From time to time I also use affiliate links in my posts, where I get a small kickback if you happen to click over on a link and purchase that product. I appreciate your support of all brands and sponsored posts on This Little Miggy as it allows me to keep creating great content I love and believe in. 

If you are a brand or company and are interested in partnering with This Little Miggy please email me at thislittlemiggy at gmail dot com for all inquiries.
