Who is Kandice

About the Author:

Kandice is a mother of five living in Myrtle Beach, S.C.  Her oldest daughter is 18 and the other four trail in at 7, 6, 5, and 4. Her expertise is accredited to her life experiences and her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Her sense of humor is uncanny, offensive, and hilarious. Stressed and stretched to the max she is like so many others out there on the internet who occasionally just want to read real life advice from someone who has been where they are. She’s the voice of all underachieving parents out there who are just trying to raise their children without botching it up so bad they end up in jail and or on Nancy Grace.

Raising five children has given her an interesting and radical view on parenting and relationships, as well as social issues concerning the two. When she’s not up to her armpits in housework or dissertations, she enjoys listening to and helping others in situations similar to hers. Solving dilemmas and digging through current affairs are her favorite pastime, so all questions and comments can be sent to her directly by emailing: raisin.em.real@gmail.com.

  1. Like where your head-space is at, Kandice. And I do admire over-achievers – a category you assuredly fit! Damned glad I didn’t say anything about Kandice! Nah, it’s a lovely name – I’m sure it fits you like a glove. Best wishes from way Down Under. David.

      Bless you David. Your words are encouragement and fuel for this new passion for writing that I have developed. Thanks for reading. I can’t wait to put out more!!!

      • Hey, mate, you clearly have some pertinent and valuable things going through your head. And you write coherently. So, you got it made as a writer! I hesitate to say: just make time to do it (given your offspring!) but I suspect someone with your discipline and capabilities will manage the task far better than most people with no distractions. Go, you good thing!

      I was just reading up on RSS feeds today. Hope to set up one soon as I am still a baby to all of this. Thanks so much for the complement. I am easy to get to know and get along with and I love conversation. I am not one of those bloggers that don’t respond to my readers, or take the time to read what my readers write. I can’t wait to get to know you better too Britt. Thanks for the like and the comment! You can get updates at the RaisinEmReal Facebook page until I can get something better going. In the works right now I have a radio show, and people keep telling me to do a news letter, I’m like…A’int nobody got time fo dat!!!!!!! Talk to you soon!!!!

    Hello Kandice…

    I was recently ‘told off’ by a blogger (not a follower I might add), who said my style of ‘welcome’ note was very much against blogging etiquette. Hmm, well I hope not to cause offence, but as you volunteered to become a follower of Uncle Spike’s Adventures, I just wanted to catch up and say “thank you, and that I appreciate your ‘follow’ as there are so many interesting and entertaining blogs out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on our farm in Turkey. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process. That’s not me trying to be pushy or ‘spamming’, but just want you to know what I’m all about.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

      Well thank you too for coming by and checking me out. I appreciate the read. I will take the time to stop and check out your material as I love people who think outside the box and don’t give a damn about etiquette and offensiveness because offensive is my middle name. I look forward to our interactions. 🙂 Stop by and check out my $#!t I Say on Facebook page for a good laugh.

      I’m sure you know that bloggers come in all shapes, sizes, colors, biases, languages, perspectives, religions, ad nausea ; AND that you can please some all of the time, and all some of the time . . . you know the rest. Your comment caught my attention, which I will follow up perhaps over the weekend.

    As a fellow parent and North Carolinian, I thank you for visiting my online writing studio, and for opting to follow my work. You will note it is rather eclectic. A quick glance at your posts and I will return to read.

    Hi Kandice. Thank you for visiting and following HoB. Much appreciated!

  10. Hi raisinemreal. May i thank you so much for calling by and wanting to follow my poetry adventures. I like to observe life and write what I see and hear in my own way. So nice to meet you. Peace and Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.

  11. Hi Kandice. Keep up the good work you’re doing here. I enjoy your poignant thoughts and excellent writing skill. Because you’re a Mommy Blogger who cares about parenting, I thought it appropriate to inform you of a product I am the co-founder of – the Milk Nanny. You can learn more about it at http://www.wicoz.com and also at our Kickstarter campaign by searching the name “Milk Nanny”

    I’d appreciate any mention you would make about our product to your blog and social media followers. Thank you.

    • raisinemreal says:

      Very nice product you have here with The Milk Nanny. I’ll be interested to learn more about it and if I can fit into a piece I’ll be happy to mention it. Looks like you’re well on your way to having a nationally marketed product. Congrats. And thanks for reading.

    Thanks for the follow, Kandice! Nice coincidence that I’m commenting just after your post about those very-white Oscars & my own post with a lot about Basquiat & all he had to say (and show) about the dynamics of race, society & politics.

  13. It amazes me that you have any time to blog! Keep up that kind of accomplished determination and you might not be ‘raisinemreal’ so much as raising kids far better than the real-life average parent does by being such a great example! And I appreciate, too, that you’re clearly looking for ways to make the everyday conversation and effort about being smart, caring, and worldly rather than about what little categories we’re trying to fit into or avoid (race, region of the country, socioeconomic microcosms, that sort of thing). The more we can just be People and have honest but respectful interactions, the less any of that other stuff should matter. I only hope your voice can contribute to more supposed *grownups* keeping it real along the way!

    • raisinemreal says:

      Kathryn, thank you so much for your encouraging comment. I too am amazed that I find time to do this. But it’s all a part of a master plan. I have yet to determine what kind of master plan it is, but it’s a master plan nonetheless. My goal is shatter unrealistic views of parenting and open minds to share alternative ideas. Thanks for reading.
