Hi! Welcome to Bad Sandy. Thanks for stopping by.

I started writing Bad Sandy because I love first person essays and a blog is the best way to do that. There is no BadSandy lady behind the computer writing pop culture takedowns and complaints about her husband. It’s just me here, writing pop culture takedowns and complaints about my husband.

Want to see what else I do? Check me out at:



If you want me to write about your product, email me and I’ll tell you how. I like stuff, I use stuff, and I’m passionate about stuff, so there’s no reason not to write about stuff. If I like your stuff, I’d be glad to share my thoughts. If I don’t, I’ll keep that to myself.

If you want to work together or just say hello, drop me a note at: Meredith@badsandy.com.

So that’s me.

  1. Hi! A friend of mine just introduced your blog to me today, so I’m still trying to read as many of your blog entries as my squinty eyes could manage. So far, though, I can already infer that I love your writing style! You’re witty and smart and self-deprecating, and you speak your mind fearlessly – without any inhibition and fear of being judged or of unwittingly offending someone’s sensibilities. I am a blogging novice (I just put up my blog 5 days ago and published my first blog entry two days after that). I just want you to know that, from now on, I will look up to you as my blogging and writing idol and will always refer to your articles whenever inspiration eludes me. That’s it, I guess. I still have a lot of reading (of your articles) to do! 🙂

  2. You know how sometimes you stumble upon someone’s blog and you read their About page and you curl up in a ball because you really want to be their friend, but you can’t because you are sissy who is watching Gossip Girl and Property Brothers, at the same time, and that makes you too busy to socialize and be nice, quirky and interesting enough to be a friend to a person who made you laugh like you haven’t in a long time?
    Anyhow…I love the blog.

  3. I completely disagree with the “Lucky” article – I am reminded weekly how I married a woman that is too good to be true. I’ve never argued with the assertion, either!
