Life by Cynthia: Do Mommy Blogs Suck?

Do Mommy Blogs Suck?

I thought I would introduce a spot for some open discussion.  Maybe add a little bit of opinion to the mix.

But first here's where I'm coming from:  My first experiences with the weblog world happened in 2004, well before I became a Mommy.  I fell in love with it.  I would blog about everything under the sun.  Life got busy and my blog-hobby fell by the wayside.  I've made my return and again I've fallen in love.  I love to read, I love to write, I love differing opinions.  I miss the blog days of old.  My former blogging community was much more vocal with opinions which I found very refreshing. Bloggers  were willing and able to respectfully debate on varied issues, offer support,  encouragement, laugh with you, share similar stories - I'm sure you get the picture. I've found a handful of wonderful "reads" here on Blogger written about Mom life. Some very insightful, witty, and relatable blogs - thank goodness! As time permits I will compile my favorite Must Reads.  Not all mommy blogs suck, but when you are limited on time - weeding through the whole lot of them can get on a busy mommy's nerves!  I think that I am just too new here on Blogger and have not found what I am looking for yet.  So if you know of any great Mom blogs please chime in and save this busy working mom a little time & energy because more & more I'm finding myself agreeing with the article below.

Check out the commentary below regarding Why people think Mommy bloggers suck. Any thoughts? Share if you please.

  3. Thank you Mel, I will definitely check out your suggestions! I trust your faves from food to makeup to you name it! I know you have great taste!

    I just shy away from the "clique-y" Mommy Mafia style groups that "urge" you to "follow me" and I'll follow you - UGH. I like to follow because I sincerely like a blog not to build up numbers. Enough of that rant, this is becoming a blog topic in itself!

    Again, thank you for sharing!

  4. I missed out on the blogging of old. Although I did "blog" persay, it was not actually a blog. When my son was in the NICU I journaled everything on a site called BabyHomePages.net. I wish I had known about actually blogging back then. I'd have quite the blog page built up now :) P.S. I don't think mommy blogs/bloggers suck ;) And thanks for following me.

  5. Hi Melanie! Thank you for your comment. I am glad I found you :) I ♥ TheMcMommyDiaries. Your blog is great! Now I don't think mommy blog suck! :) I look forward to reading more as time permits. How scary it must've been when your boy was in NICU. I'm sure the journaling helped a bit - I always find comfort in writing it out. Read ya soon.
