One of the tags I follow on WordPress is “Motherhood,” and I have to compliment all the Mommy Bloggers out there:
You’re creativity and support astounds me!
Just the some of the blog names alone are enough to bring a smile to my face. I start my morning, after the kids and hubby have gone, with a cup of coffee and peruse through the posts.
With every topic from sleep training and breast feeding to sending the last child off to college, and every stage that happens in between, the posts read better than most fictional novels on the market.
Mommy bloggers are willing to bare their souls. Their triumphs and tragedies, their hopes and heartaches are laid out for the world to see. They are fearless when it comes to their honesty.
Mommy bloggers are always helpful and encouraging, and I’ve never read, or had, a comment that was malicious or judgmental. It’s so refreshing. In “real life” (for lack of a better term), women can be so competitive, but that isn’t the way the Mommy blogosphere works.
I’m amazed at how resourceful Mommy Bloggers are. At how they’re willing to share their secrets of saving a dollar, fashion and fitness tips, getting little Sarah to finally poop on the potty, or getting the older child to put down their phone and join the family.
Mommy Bloggers find humor in the mundane things of life, and we can all relate, and they can also find deep reflection as their children sleep.
Mommy Bloggers make you feel not so alone, because there is a quiet understanding that we all feel that at any moment we could completely screw up our kid for the rest of their life.
No matter what anyone tells you, mothering is hard, both mentally and physically, and no one is prepared until you actually are in the middle of it. And no one should do it alone.
The internet can be a mean and wicked place, but I’m glad we’ve managed to keep this community a kind a gentle forum, especially in the Mother-hood.
So keep up the creativity Mommy Bloggers. You’re community is amazing. I’m truly grateful for being a part of it.
How has the Mommy Blogging community helped you? Are there any Mommy Blogs that have been especially motivating or comforting to you?
