So I'm up-in-arms, and this is your fair warning.
Something came up and now I have a series of posts I am considering writing. Here are the topics, loosely pencilled in:
1. Why do networks of women bloggers/social media people talk so much about parenting? Is this the time and place? Do we join these networks to learn about Kraft Dinner or do we want real discussion about publishing and new media issues?
2. Why are people afraid to piss off the 'mom bloggers'? Should this be acceptable?
3. As a new parental figure in the lives of two kids, should I be accepting a new identity as a 'mom blogger'? What if I resist this? What if my every waking thought isn't about kids?
4. What is the cultural responsibility of parent bloggers when it comes to accepting sponsorships from companies marketing products that aren't actually good for our families?
If you have opinions, ideas, etc., you can comment below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm scared to death to write these posts and warn you all in advance: my opinions are highly biased, based mostly on my emotional reaction to what I'm experiencing, and absolutely not meant to be authoritative in any way. Be gentle, moms and dads, when you reply...I'm open to your ideas, too.
