Life as a Swiffer Fanatic, Vol. 2 — Fighting Messes from Other People’s Pooches… Because #ShedHappens.

So it’s been a minute since I’ve been able to write on my life as a Swiffer Fanatic, but with the holiday season right smack in our faces, they brought me an assignment that had me barking up trees I’d rarely sniffed at before.

Life as a Swiffer Fanatic, Vol. 2 — Fighting Messes from Other People's Pooches... Because #ShedHappens — Child's First PetWith two parents allergic to fur, pets weren’t a big part of my upbringing. I loved playing with other people’s pooches, but after seeing that my Dad couldn’t even keep goldfish alive (still love you, though!), I knew to stop asking for a dog from a young age.

Years later with a place of my own, I guess a dog’s something I could’ve considered adding to the family, but with the focus on the career and the family, and the rest of it on the blog, I just never managed to fit one in.

It’s good, then, that the world’s full of people who can share their time, love and energy a sight more than I can!

I’ve denied my blogger identity for a while now, trying to live a life free of the nastiness associated with the word — soulless content created for the highest bidder; objective opinion cast aside to keep the ship afloat, not wanting unpopular thoughts getting in the way of potential opportunities. I didn’t want to follow the best practices and suggested guidelines that’d just make me like everyone else — I wanted to create work that’d be unashamedly unique, not demanding that I compromise to fit a certain niche or pander to a broader audience… I just wanted to create stuff that I’d enjoy reading, and be proud to share with others.

That said, it can often be hard to find brands who see the world like I do, fixating less on follower counts and visitor numbers, and looking more for bloggers capable of telling the best stories — giving them access to something money can’t buy… or falsify.

Which is why I appreciate my partnership with Swiffer.
