Yep. That’s about it.

This post is about the best statement I’ve ever read as to why “mommy blogging” is important:

“… I started blogging partly out of a need to construct a new public identity for my self now that I was a mother. A blog can be like a mirror and I needed to see a reflection of a person I still recognized there after all the changes I’d been through. Because I wasn’t finding myself anywhere else. All the media representations of moms that I saw made us look like simpleminded, coupon-hoarding, minivan-driving, sexless, suburban freaks. Yet somehow I cherished a spark of hope that even if you were a white middle-class stroller pusher that didn’t mean that you were incapable of constructing a nuanced opinion on a topic focused beyond the confines of your own ass.”
