What do you get when you mix kinky hair, the debate team, sunflowers and a Buddha statue, you get me, Muffy Mendoza.  I’m the most down-to-earth brown blogger you know.  I am a homeschooling mama of 3 boys (17, 11 & 10) and wife who loves hiking and biking with my family, gardening, playing video games with my sons and watching documentaries.

Over the last 7 years, I’ve blogged on behalf of a ton of brands.  I’ve written a DIY Date Night series for IKEA, a series on careers in real estate for Northwood Realty and an online and in-person event/blog series for Bolthouse Farms and Chick-Fil-A.  I love working with brands who allow me to tell a story or take my family somewhere exciting, like this piece I did with Columbus Zoo & Aquarium or the Cultural Trust.

My favorite topics to write about are homeschooling, things to do in Pittsburgh and tips and tricks on raising a tribe of boys (including relationship stuff ’cause hubby is a boy too…lol).

As a blogger for nearly a decade, my work has been recognized as exemplary in 2019 when I was nominated for an Iris Award.  In addition, I’ve published work on ScaryMommy.com, Public Source and as an ambassador for Common Sense Media, I draft videos, blog post and creative content for WideOpenSchool.org.  In addition, I am the host of the new Brown Mama Blueprint Podcast.

I have a collective 11k followers on Facebook (between my hyper local Facebook group and my fan page). I also have about 3.4k Twitter Followers and 3k Instagram followers.  My blog averages 10k pageviews per month.

My numbers aren’t huge but, with 7 years of influencing under my belt, a wildly popular book series that was featured at the 2018 Essence Festival, The Brown Mama Mindset, and the outstanding reputation I have locally as a thought leader and innovator, my reach is well worth the risk.
