The New York Times Strikes Again

So, in case you’re one of those people who skims the whole Sunday Magazine section of the NY Times just to get to the crossword puzzle I’m here to fill you in on an article lighting up the mom blogosphere and Twitter.  Queen of the Mommy Bloggers, an article by Lisa Belkin, a woman whose journalistic cred I think is well established and deserved, hit the stands and the web and caused an enormous whirlwind of discussion.  This is the kind of thing that would usually get my fingers typing all on their own, but luckily for me a blogger extraordinaire, Liz Gumbinner – MOM 101 – beat me to it.  It’s not just that she wrote a great response; it’s that she wrote exactly what I would’ve written, only shorter, better and with a much more even temper.  She’s fabulous like that.

So, click on over and read her wonderful defense of being a writer.  Not a blogger.  Not a mom.  A writer.

Get A Job, Bloggers!

  1. Firstly, let me say that I do NOT know Heather from Toronto…!

    Glad you pointed this article out in your blog. Anytime anyone puts themselves ‘out there’ they run the risk of criticism. It could be something you painted, it could be something you wrote. It’s fairly subjective. Add to that the success/noteriety that (mom) bloggers have achieved – and well….then you get your haters.

    The big difference bw bloggers and those who provide hateful comments? Most of the time you know who the blogger is,..commentors who hide behind innocuous handles? Not so much. It’s just cowardice.
