I remember hearing about how at last year's BlogHer, people looked down their noses at mommy blogs. I guess parenting is not a cool thing to talk about in the blogosphere. It's too bad because I surf a ton of blogs and I find that the parenting blogs are the ones that are most insightful and interesting and funny. They're also some of the best written.

And no, I don't even have kids!

Totes. I say you start a Daddy/Dad war just for the shit of it.

Love your site. I forwarded your post to my husband, who has just started his blog too. It could be categorized as a daddy blog, I suppose. Our families love getting to hear what's new, and we're having fun joining the blogosphere. It's all good.

Meredith

You cool. So cool that my husband has been inspired to create his own blog because of you and your coolness. He has not though which, of course, makes him less cool than you and me and all the bloggers out there.

People that think we're just housewives are just jealous at what all we can accomplish in one day that they can't accomplish in one month. I happen to work full time, working on writing my books, take care of my twin infant boys, household, and somehow cram in some me time into all that, plus my boys website, please, these "haters" wish they could do half of what us mommy bloggers do.
Long live the Mommy/Daddy bloggers!

Queen of Ass

You know, someone about a year ago left me a really hateful comment because I was a "mommy blog" (which was news to me!) and I also discussed sex (oh! the horror!) and the fact that my son was infatuated with his penis. My whole point was that parenting is only a facet of me. I am also (OMG!) a sexual being, a person with my own interests (egads!), and for heaven's sake! Kids get interested in their private parts! Is this news?

UGH! People - ALL of us - can't be lumped into just one category. Not if we are going to actually admit to being REAL people.

I'm simultaneously bemused and just SO unsurprised to find those that want to judge.

One half of me just wished the silly hating and judging wouldn't need to happen.

The other half wants to get in a huff, be angry at all the mommy/daddy blog haters, and use that to help us all feel warm, cuddly, and all the more unified.

Ahh.. screw it. I love you all no matter what anyone says, just wait until we unite and take over. After all, there seem to be more people "popping humans out their hoo-hahs" every day.

Ten Feet of Steel

Cut us unmarried childless folk a break. Of course we harbor resentment, because the world is constantly telling us that we and our obsessions and ambitions are not as important as your children...and sometimes, it's hard to argue with that. But only sometimes.
If it makes a difference, the person you remind me of most is one of my very close friends, who is a single, childless woman. It's like seeing her brain on testosterone and kids. Please take that as a compliment.

it's odd.

i've actually taken days off from posting anything at all just to give myself and my meager readership a rest from delivering story after story about my kids.

and then, just as i've written something off the family topic, often just to do it, i find that getting back into the kid stuff leads to some of the most satisfying writing i do.

it's a constant debate i have with myself. why would anyone who doesn't know my kids care about my kids? and yet, i keep putting it out there. guess that officially makes me a daddy blogger too.

Donna

The rarity of the "daddy blogs" makes 'em all the more enjoyable! I am a fan!

thDad

Dude, maybe it just means you're a chick magent. That's pretty cool in my book, but just to be on the safe side I'll move you over to my "mommy blogger" list. ;-)

Well said. You go, dad!

I'm wondering if this whole "mommy blogger" title is just because...honestly...people that are given this "label" DO write primarily about parenting. I don't think that's necessarily offensive; I just think those that are "haters" or using it as a derogatory term are just not interested in reading about parenting, and wonder why those people don't write about MORE than just parenting?

I mean, personally, I've stopped reading certain blogs because I'm not interested in the whole parenting thing, and I found that's all they would write about. I didn't lose one ounce of respect for them, it just was no longer interesting reading to me. I don't think that's a bad thing, it's just preference. I would never say, "OH they're a MOMMY Blogger now!" and move on. I just think, "Hmmm, their lives are way different than mine" and then move on, IF I didn't still find their material interesting.

I don't know, I'm just talking. And I've had wine.
