It’s not just a mommy blog.

standard November 25, 2009 7 responses

I’ve never been one to bristle at being called a mommy blogger. In fact, I’ve always been quite proud of it. What’s there not to be proud of?

I’m a mommy and I’m proud of that.

I’m a blogger and I’m proud of that.

And I blog about being a mommy quite often. Therefore clearly I am a mommy blogger. And I’m proud of it.

Yet, today I took some mild offense when someone I was chatting with online asked me if I was “just” a mommy blogger. (And no, she did not say “just,” I inferred it. And yes, I know that she did not mean it pejoratively, she meant it in a good way. Because she is a good person who understands what mommy blogging entails. And I’m not just saying that because she reads my blog. Ahem.)

When I saw those words in my IM message box I bristled. I love my blog, but I do so much more than just blog. Or rather blogging is so much more than just the blog. There’s the social media component, the promotional component, the PR component, the research, the editing, the photography, and everything else that goes into it. It’s a full time job that few of us have 8 hours a day to dedicate to. We do it at night and in the minutes between everything else that takes up our energy and our attention. We pour our hearts and our souls into this little editing window. We share our hopes and our fears with the world. And we do it for a million different reasons – to hear ourselves think, to lend some meaning to our days, to reach out to friends, family, or people who might be sharing similar experiences.

A mommy who blogs about her kids and her family life is by definition a mommy blogger, but she’s never just a mommy blogger.

  • Amen girl. Keep up all the hard work and minutes here and there. We “just love” mommy blogs :).

  • And how. I share the same feelings about it. I’ve always been proud, even when people started using that label with disdain in their voices or inference. Still am.

  • Until recently, I didn’t know there were such divisions in this world of bloggers. It throws me off whenever it’s mentioned.

    At our school, the teacher aides tended to preface remarks of importance, “Well, you know, I’m just an aide…” so I started calling them “Justins” and told them to knock it off. It remains a joke to this day, but most don’t denigrate themselves that way any more.

    As for what kind of blogger one is? Who cares. People read you, and that’s what matters! I’m Justin Blogger who few people read.

  • I know..sometimes I feel people look at me like ‘how nice you have a hobby’ and yes..it is a hobby..but it is also been a HUGE way for me to keep up with the world outside of parenting and within. A way to keep my brain active and see where i can next move my talents towards when my kids don’t need me so much.

    But yeah..I gotta stop myself putting in that ‘just’!

  • I just had to jump in and say that I love you for using the word “pejoratively” in context. Awesome. 🙂

  • Totally agree. I’m a wife, mom, grandmom, sister, aunt, friend, pretty good cook, crafty, work full time in a professional field, & more. And oh, I blog too.
