NEWEST BLOGGER BABE & BEE: JESSICA BAEZA


Jessica Baeza is a millennial just hitting the keys and typing the nuances of fashion and personal stories that piece together this world one blog at a time. Her look says girl next door. Her ring finger says off the market.Her blog says, diversity.  Why should we be interested in a married blogger though she's taken? For starters we care about JESSICA because she is our newest bee and we are here to welcome her to the hive, but beyond that she gives great relationship advice and is a blooming author working on her first book deal. Jessica is just one more girl trying to run her own business and be a bomb-ass-boss to her blogging minions. 


NEWEST BLOGGER BABE & BEE: JESSICA BAEZALL CELE Rs



BRAVE:     Let's start with the world's hardest question, who is Jessica Baeza? 

JESSICA:     I am someone who is brutally honest and insanely caring. I have a big mouth and it usually gets me in trouble, but it's also gotten me this far in life so, it can't be all that bad. I'm my own boss.I'm very upfront and a lot of that is reflected in my writing. Everything I write about is a true story and I love being able to share that with the world.

BRAVE:     As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

JESSICA :     When I was younger I wanted to be a teacher. I started taking Early Childhood Education courses and got as far as student teaching when I decided to change majors. Writing has always been a passion of mine, I just never saw myself making a career out of it.

BRAVE:     You used to write for a magazine called Story Chick. What did you learn working for that magazine? 

JESSICA :     Working for SC was such an amazing learning experience! I started out as just a contributor, and it was mainly to just help grow my portfolio and get my work out in the world. But it also helped me to expand into editing and gave me the motivation to start my own blog. The best part is I made a lot of connections with other writers, I networked. 26395e6a.jpg

BRAVE:     You started a blog called the Muddled Millennial, what's it about and how do you feel about entrepreneurship?

JESSICA :      I started Muddled Millennial a few years ago, but it didn’t have the same name. It started out as more of a personal blog where I could house all of my published work. After gaining some more confidence I decided to bring on a few writers, change the name to something a little catchier instead of just my name, and kind of do a whole new approach. We re-launched a few months ago and so far I’m very thrilled with the outcome. I have some amazing writers who help to keep the website fresh and share some amazing, real-life stories with our followers. I guess, i'm a boss, which feels good. I feel that entrepreneurship is great for people who get bored easily and have a knack for many things. Being able to freelance has given me the opportunity to start my own blog and focus on a few other things I have in the works.

BRAVE:      Isn't blogging for stupid people, who couldn't get a job at a magazine or newspaper? 

JESSICA :      Girl…. Let me be honest. I hated the thought of blogging at first! That’s why it took me so long to actually start my own page. But getting a job at a newspaper or magazine isn’t that easy. You need something to back up your work and show the world how great your writing actually is. I think if I didn’t start my blog, I wouldn’t have grown as a writer.

BRAVE:     If you could work for any magazine or newspaper who would it be?b1944649.jpg


JESSICA :     If I could work for any newspaper or magazine it would be New York Times, DEFINITELY! That has always been a dream of mine, but I feel like I really need to bust my ass and make my portfolio standout like no other. Or, if that didn't work out, I wouldn't mind working for Cosmopolitan either. They're so raunchy and that is right up my alley!

BRAVE:     Do you have any other projects in the works? 



JESSICA :     I do! I’m hoping to add some Muddled Millennial Merch to the site. I’m almost finish with my first book which is about dating and relationships. They’re all real stories of my past relationships and how I rekindled an old love. I have plans to start a series of children’s books as well.

BRAVE:     What's on your ipod? 


BAEZA:     Well technically I do not have an Ipod, but My phone holds various types of music. One minute I’ll vibe to some Ingrid Michaelson, then I’ll have some Dropkick Murphy’s come on and I get all amped up!




BRAVE:     I used to dig the song Dropkick Murphy's did for the Bondoick Saint's Soundtrack.Do you actually pay attention to other bloggers and read what they write? 

JESSICA :     Yes, I do. If I didn’t I would be a pretty terrible editor, dontcha think? HA! I have a lot of writers who are starting out where I was a few years ago, so it’s my job to read their work thoroughly and give them notes that will only benefit them as writers.

BRAVE:     What do you do when you're not writing? 1bbd187f.jpg


JESSICA :     I love to go running! It’s my favorite stress reliever. Or as cliché and corny as it sounds, when I’m not writing I’m spending time with the hubs, and Bailey (the dog). Our work schedules are the complete opposite, so we never really see each other.aedaf2c7.jpg


BRAVE:     Who is your hubby and why did you marry him out of all the eligible bachelors?

JESSICA :      Austin is my high-school sweetheart. We met when we were 15/16 years-old while we were in gym class. We dated on and off throughout high-school and then decided to go our separate ways in college. Not a lot of ex-couples can remain friends, but shockingly we did. Four years ago we started dating, had gotten engaged, and this past October we celebrated our first year of marriage. I knew he was the one because even after all the bullshit we had gone through, we remained in each others lives. He puts up with me and I've never felt like I could be myself around anyone else. Austin is very funny. But don't tell him I said that...

BRAVE:      Can you walk us through a day-in-the-life of a married-millennial?   Check out Jessica's BLOG HERE

JESSICA :      Marriage isn’t  perfect that’s for sure. I love my husband every day, but there are times during the day where I do not like him, and I know he feels the same way. A day in the life is peeing with the door opened, walking about naked, stupid jokes, laughter, sometimes anger, farting, and a constant battle of “what do you want to eat?” But, even on the bad days, it’s always fun. And it’s always nice to come home to someone who’s waiting for you… even if they are naked.32857f8d.jpg

BRAVE:     Can you tell us what you think the advantages and disadvantages are about blogging? 

JESSICA :     The advantages are obvious. It’s a great way to self-promote and publish your work. If you’re like me and are planning on writing a book, you need to gain a following. And that’s exactly what I’m doing by running my website and posting onto my personal accounts too.

The disadvantages have to be, you’re working for free. And to be honest, I really don’t mind. I just try to keep a positive mind and I know that in the end all of the hard work will be worth it.

Hi Lyon [ Lyon Brave ] I usually let me mother tell me who I am and say "Thanks Mum!", once a mother tells us who we are, we can save all that time trying to find out who we are. Then our mind is totally free to riff at our hearts content, if people don't like what we say, we say "Hey! That's what my Mother said!" - validation complete, psychosis eliminated. After all Lyon, what is the point of going online simply to say you like something. Eat it, digest it, manipulate it and give it your greatest cerebral-poop. What is the worst that is going to happen? We are going to find out who we are by the very words we use and we get an ancillary benefit of keeping a mother happy (or whoever the guardian spirit of our soul is) - and who wouldn't want to flow with life like that? Anything else about me, I say as all boxers would that keep getting knocked out stone cold in the first round "you can speak to my manager" the Deanmeister Dean Owen

I can feel the Millennial vibe (though I actually hate these marketing labels). I want to see more artists in beBee and I want to see fresh voices with fresh angles. That is what I feed off, that is my dinner here - the variety, the vibe, the voice, the vision or the valiant. I also have another part of my brain delving into who Ingrid Michaelson is and I see an album name "It doesn't have to make sense?" and I think, I dig that. Now it comes down three strikes and your out [focus on the process not the person], so listen to Hell No and I think YUCK but the next track LIGHT ME UP - I think F-n-A which in my language means it mixes with my flow Light Me Up Again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsF86vz-xD4 And then I am back to reading this buzz and where I forget to welcome of the person I am reading the buzz - it is not rude, it means that I quit the formalities because there stuff for me to chew on. See, what I really like is riffing and the riff changes with the spirit of the person that I am reading, which I guess why I like Michaelson's album title, only to find out that she never recorded a track with that name of the album, but at least she writes her own tunes. In terms of the interview I dig "Marriage isn’t perfect that’s for sure. I love my husband every day, but there are times during the day where I do not like him" - who does not like to end on the high of our smirky smile. Oh, yes - BTW Welcome Jessica.
