I am in the unfortunate position of being in “blog limbo”.
Despite vowing many moons ago never to become a mommy blogger, it became obvious roughly, oooh, 18 months ago that I was a big fat hypocrite and soon to break my one blogging rule. And, while I like to think I put my own unique spin on parenting, boobs and poo, nothing I write here hasn’t already been covered before. In fact, I’ve even talked about this deviation from geekery before!
Anyway, the problem with this general mummy persona is that I still find most mummy bloggers boring, so while I try to find my “place” within this section of the blogosphere (ick) I end up going out and commenting on the old blog haunts … blogs of people who don’t have children, who like geeky things, who read and write code.
And thus, we have a problem. I can leave as many comments as I like on old friend’s blogs, but while I’m talking poop said old friends won’t/don’t really want to know. And while I continue to refer to mom bloggers as boring and mediocre I’m not exactly doing myself any favours on t’other side of the fence. My lentil-weaving views don’t make me any friends with the mainstreamers, but I’m not crunchy enough to dance with the hippies. I don’t post enough pictures or recipes or crafty tutorials to be considered useful, but am not totally useless either.
Woe. Blog limbo. Or blog identity-crisis. Whatever. :(
