About My Crazy Good Life

About Becca

Welcome to My Crazy Good Life! I’m so glad you stopped by to say hello.

You’ve landed right in the middle of my lifestyle blog, where I write about parenting tweens and teens, navigating social media with a teenager, and how we use some of the coolest technology and gadgets. You’ll also find our favorite recipes (the ice cream pie is a must-try!), a bit about health & fitness, and my parent reviews of cars and trucks as well as parent movie reviews–because there’s nothing worse than taking your kids to a movie and being surprised with something inappropriate or scary.

Everything But the Posts: A book for bloggers

I recently wrote a book! I am a blog mentor who loves helping bloggers grow and monetize. I decided to write Everything But the Posts: Tips, Advice, and Templates from a Blogger Who Has Been in Your Shoes when my mentoring business started to grow and I didn’t have as much time to take on all the clients I wanted to. Everything But the Posts will give you all of my advice about blog design, community building, and monetization. Purchasing the book also grants you admittance to my private Facebook group where you can ask for advice from other bloggers, support one another, and get my thoughts about your favorite blogging topics. My book is available as a paperback, Kindle, Nook, and iBook.

You can also find me over at iPhone Life blogging about my favorite past time–mobile technology. If you’re a small business owner needing some social media help or a blogger looking for some basic design or blog mentoring, those are services I offer over at BeccaLudlum.com.

About Becca

Raised in upstate New York, I joined the Air Force at 17 and ended up in Shreveport, Louisiana. I met my amazing husband while active duty and though I left the military, he was still active when we were sent to Japan. Our first son, Michael, was born there in 2000 and shortly after we came back to the US, deciding on Tucson, Arizona. In 2004 we had our second son, Jack.

I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2005 with a degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences and then again in 2008 with my master’s degree in teaching. I immediately started working as a speech therapist in a local middle school and loved it.

In 2009 I started a blog called Our Crazy Boys, meant to give our families in New York and California a glimpse into our daily lives. As my blog slowly grew, I realized that I didn’t have the time to work as a speech therapist as well as keep up a blog. That’s when my husband persuaded me to take some time off to explore blogging.

I left speech therapy in 2012 and rebranded my parenting humor blog to a lifestyle blog in 2013, allowing me to write about a little of everything. The title of my blog is a great representation of my life right now. Crazy good.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Thanks for stopping by! I love connecting with my readers, so leave a comment or connect with me on one of the social media networks to the right–I’d love to “meet” you!

    You have a beautiful family and I love your philosophy of laughing along with them– it’s the surest way to keep from going insane while raising two boys! (I have two boys, too.) :-D

    I really love these pictures of the boys. Oh my Michael looks so angelic and what can I say about Jack. Jack has the devil in him. Thru and thru. How much fun though to have two totally different children in all aspects. This is what life is all about. Yup……….

    Great to meet you!! I’m a boy mom of 2 as well. My boys are 3 yrs and 14 months. Its refreshing to find a mom blogger with older kids. I always wonder if my boys will want me blogging about their crazy antics as they get older. So strange to see them as “older” but time just flies! I left a comment on a post but I’m a SLP too! :)

    Hi I’m Cameron. I’ve been following along for a while in hopes of gaining some parenting tips and insight as well as getting in touch with other great parents and their blogs! I’m in no ways a parent but I am the older brother of three crazy boys. With an absent father and a deceased mother I was left in the place of raising my three siblings with the help and financial support my tired and stressed grandparents. I’m 18-years-old and still feel like a child in my own eyes, but I have since taken the responsibility of helping raise a 9-year-old, 11-year-old, and 14-year-old. :)

      Wow, Cameron! It sounds like you’re doing an amazing job with your three brothers. You’ve got quite a difficult job, and I admire you for being a positive role model for them.
      Thank you so much for your comment – I truly appreciate you stopping to say hello!

    Found you on Twitter as I was browsing. It’s obvious family means a lot to you. My 5 year old grandson is the one who inspired me to start my site. Don’t you just love kids.
