The Real World: Wilmington

This is the true story … of four family members … who chose to move to the south … live together and have their lives blogged … to find out what happens … when people stop being polite … and start having babies … The Real World: Wilmington.

On a regular day I feel proud of Jamie for the friend, father and husband that he is. I am proud of him for being so driven and committed to our family. I am also proud of him for continuing to pursue things that he’s passionate about in life. Today I am extra proud because of the article that was written about him in the New York Observer

My favorite part:

But who was the shadowy blog overlord gobbling up bodies?

As it turns out, his name is Jamie Mottram. He’s a sunny, 32-year-old sports blogger–turned–media executive who works out of his house by the beach in Wilmington, N.C.—a town of 75,000 residents with a river walk and lots of deciduous trees, located roughly 593 miles southwest of Balthazar.

On a recent Monday afternoon, The Observer met Mr. Mottram for lunch at Novita, an Italian restaurant near Gramercy Park. He was in town for 24 hours. That evening he would be meeting with some of his recently hired bloggers at a bar in Brooklyn. He has brown hair and blue-green eyes. He looked well rested and tan. His major concern was where he’d watch the Washington Capitals game that night on TV. He ordered the ravioli. Just seven short years ago, Mr. Mottram said, he’d never heard of blogging. “Now,” he added, “it pays my mortgage.”

 I love that Jamie has carved out a career for himself based around something that he’s passionate about and good at.  Thanks for working  hard not only for yourself but for us too!
