Spinoff from another discussion.
How do you define a 'mommy blogger'?
What kind of content does a 'mommy blog' have?
Do you think the phrase is a positive or negative connotation?
Are you a 'mommy blogger'?
I don't consider myself a mommy blogger, although I do consider myself a blogger and a mom if that makes sense. I have a non-mommy blog, so I am not defining any mom that blogs as a mommy blogger. I would reserve that term for someone who blogs around their children and home-life for the most part.
Just for the fact that they are a mom and doing a blog, whether they work or not, I think it is a positive connotation because they are able to do so much work!
OK, my turn. I got the impression of 'mommy bloggers' when my son was very small and EVERYONE in the Bump.com message boards had a blog that they filled with pictures, stats from doctor appointments, and gushing acheivements all over their blogs, some of which were really poorly written.
I've seena lot of blogs that are written by moms that show their outside interests and then happen to talk about being a parent and the life as well. It's helping change my perception, there are many 'mommy blogs' that are well written and have many interests that pull me in, and I aspire to write like them. but when I personally hear 'mommy blogger' I always think of all of those women with their blogs all about just their children.
So for me, 'mommy blogs' aren't the same as what many define as a 'mommy blogger'. I don't define myself as one but many would that don't have the same perception as me, and I am fine with that.
