On March 12, the NYT published an article about Mommy Bloggers entitled Honey, Don’t bother Mommy. I’m too busy building my brand.
I needed a good hard smack in the face to wake me up.
A good reminder as to why I, an alleged Mommy Blogger, do what I do.
Nah, can’t be.
It’s not because I want to educate and increase awareness about Postpartum Disorders and recognize other Mommy Bloggers doing the same.
What about increasing awareness for resources for families struggling with Postpartum Mood Disorders? Could that be it?
Maybe. But probably not. In fact, I highly doubt it.
Probable but unlikely.
According to the NYT, I blog so I can get free stuff. So I can pimp my little corner on the web out to Corporate America. And more importantly, I blog because with three kids ages 5 and under, I just don’t have enough to do.
YEAP! That’s IT! SO ME! OH SO ME! *jumps up and down* Wait – how did they know???
Ahem. Who do you think I am? Martha friggin Stewart? Clearly you don’t have a hidden camera here because then you’d know I’m a bit more in Roseanne Barr’s lane when it comes to keeping house.
Thank you NYT for the harsh reminder of why I’ve leapt headfirst into this strange land called the Blogosphere.
I had almost forgotten.
And forgetting why you blog, dear friends, is just dangerous.
