Here we go. More biatching about how HARD it is to take care of kids.

Somewhere along the line women mixed up 'important' and 'hard'. Raising kids right is important. It's not hard.

Your mother told me differently at the playground the other day.

Nothing makes me lose all hope for humanity quite like reading a "mommy-blog".
Really? You think your limited and isolated life experience is so important that other people need to read about it? You think your opinions matter? That asteroid can't come soon enough.

You just described the average Farker whining about shiat in any given thread.

Wow, writing about your day reduces stress? Really?

And this isn't a Ric Romero link?

True, but no one *really* takes Fark all that seriously...

Actually, the article is just talking about new moms reaching out for support and advice, and a lot of this stuff you hear about with new stay-at-home dads as well. Trying to make this about how women are whiners or whatever is moving the goal posts waaay out into some other field altogether.

Blogs are more 'personal diary made public' than 'people attempting to be journalists'. Most people blog because they enjoy doing it, themselves. Same reason most people post on places like Fark. They enjoy it.

Now there is evidence that there are actual, measurable, benefits to blogging. And people still biatch about bloggers? I don't get it. It's the VERY DEFINITION of an action that has no negative impact to anyone....and the people doing it ENJOY it and BENEFIT MEDICALLY from it.

I can understand disliking people who try to pass laws that impact your day in a negative way. Or fat people on airlines. Or cyclists who insist on pedalling down the middle of a road where they can't possibly come even close to keeping up with traffic....because all of those things have some minor-but-tangible impact on yourself.

But someone blogging? Who cares.

So, as long as your blog sucks, you can't get pregnant?

FTFM. Basic biology, folks.

As long as they use 100% recycled electrons.

Meh it's kind of lame, but if I was stuck at home, isolated and lonely, I'd probably latch onto any kind of community I could, and if that's the mommy blog-o-sphere (I hate myself for having just typed that), then that's fine by me. I'm not wasting my time reading it.

If it doesn't impact me, to each their own.

What's lame is that these women sometimes make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year posting their unreadable tripe, because all the advertisers who used to be in the ad breaks during soap operas are now paying to be featured on insipid mommy blogs instead.

And no, being a stay at home mom isn't hard. Best job I ever had.

Oh those poor women who have had a child, it must be so hard to not have any tv shows, magazines or playgroups out there to help deal with the issues you are having.

/try being a stay at home dad
