Holly Homer

Holly Homer is the stay-at-home, work-from-home, mom of three boys ages 8-13.   She started blogging 8 years ago by accident.  Her accidental hobby is now a full-time job!  She runs Kids Activities Blog that is all about fun things to do with kids.  Holly believes that play doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive and that the best craft supplies are found in the kitchen junk drawer.

Holly has her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy that has come in handy trying to wear out 3 boys.  She is a true believer that no knowledge is wasted.  This was proven in her own family when sensory processing issues started presenting themselves.

She loves sharing what she has learned (often the hard way) through blogging and speaks frequently on social media and the business of being a blogger.  She founded the company, Business 2 Blogger, which matches bloggers with companies who are looking for them.

She is the co-author of 101 Kids Activities That Are the Bestest, Funnest Ever! with her blogging partner, Rachel Miller.  It was published by Page Street in the spring.

Holly is in daily amazement at the ability to create the dream job and then work it… well, actually in her case, it is more about play.
