Introductions!

Hello!

Many of you may know me from Wendi's Book Corner, where I've written about books and products (and various other subjects) since August of 2008.  Over the past year, I've really enjoyed branching out into products and places and I wanted to get a more general blog going, thus the concept for What Wendi Wants started forming.  I want to let my followers over at Wendi's Book Corner get back to what they originally started visiting for: books.  :)

A little about me: I am a mid-30's woman, mother, wife, daughter, grand-daughter, friend, etc. who lives near Seattle, Washington.  I have a wonderful husband (we met in high school, dated for YEARS, and got married in 2000).  We now have two very active young boys (one is 5, the other is 2).

Until our family started, I worked for a Fortune 50 company as a business professional.  I earned my Master's degree in Business, specializing in Human Resources, Accounting and Change Management.  I loved my day job and the challenges it presented, but I love my family more.  I am now a stay-at-home Mom.  I am passionate about my family and love learning and sharing with others.

Some of the things I love in life and will likely share with you: my family, books, movies, games, household products, gardening, crafts, recipes, places to visit, etc.  I want a lot out of life (thus the title, What Wendi Wants), and I'm going to share fun aspects with you!

I love hosting product parties and have had a lot of success sharing great products and services with local Seattle and Eastside families.

I originally created Wendi's Book Corner as a way to document and record all the books I read, and have found it to be so rewarding and fun!  It has also grown and evolved into a general blog where I share book and product reviews, crafts, recipes, daily life and where I'm starting some fun local features, including Around The Sound, where I'll showcase local events and places to visit in and around the Seattle area.

I love my blog - so come on over and say hi!  You can also find me on The Husband Project.

In 2011, Wendi's Book Corner was nominated for Parents Best Local Mom Blog!

If you would like to send me a book or product to review on my blog (Amazon, Library Thing and GoodReads also), please email me and I will send you my contact information. I will make a point to review your book or product as soon as possible. wbarker@hotmail.com




Full disclosure: As of December 1, 2009, the FTC is requiring that bloggers who post their reviews disclose the source of the book/product they are reviewing. Most of the books and products I review were received courtesy (free of charge) of the publisher, author, publicist, manufacturer, or other Word-of-Mouth Marketing company (like BzzAgent, One2One Network, etc). I do not get paid for my reviews ~ I simply enjoy learning about new books/products and passing on the information and my thoughts.
