Filed as General with no comments

“Call a woman a “mommy blogger” and you might as well be slinging mud. The expression, as it is most commonly used, is patronizing at best, derogatory at worst.” – Lauren Apfel, debate editor for Brain, Child Magazine

Being a mother is probably the most difficult job in the world, especially if you have to raise your kids, work, and manage the whole household all at the same time. It is thus not a surprise that mommy blogging has become popular. Not only does it provide an outlet (even therapy) for moms, but it can also be a means of earning money.

We can’t ignore the fact that in some circles, mommy blogging is looked down upon. As the quote from Lauren highlights, the term can be patronizing.

But it doesn’t have to be so. There are many successful mommy bloggers who are to be admired for what they have accomplished, not only in terms of popularity but because of the quality of their writing. If you want to launch your own mommy blog, make sure to look to these successful mommy bloggers for inspiration. read more
