Mom blogs are all the rage, says the Denver Post
, and advertisers are taking notice. Mother Goose Mouse
is a Parker mom blogging away and, according to the Post, paying the mortgage. Go girl! GreebleMonkey
is another Denver mom blogger, also part of the Mile High Mamas
. Because I Said So
is a mom of 6 (6!) kids. Go visit her! And Dooce
is so big now that her blog supports her whole family! I remember reading her back in 2002, before she was a mom. So why do all these moms blog? To be a part of a bigger community. To not feel so isolated. Because let's face it: motherhood is just not something that you can do alone. You have to reach out, no matter how shy you are, no matter how many friends you already have. You just need to have that camaraderie of women in the same shoes as you. You need their advice, their sympathy, their company, their kvetching. Every mom wants to talk about what their child is doing, what's normal, what's worrisome, what's cute. Only other moms can appreciate and tolerate hearing how your child spends hours every morning taking every item of clothing out of his drawers and piling them around the dog. We need each other.
