My Life is Average – So funny!

This is funny and great time waster. http://mylifeisaverage.com/  This was given to me by a teen I know :-)

  From the site:

MyLifeIsAverage

Life is pretty normal today. MyLifeIsAverage is a place to share your everyday mediocrity. It is a place to post the mundane things in your life, and read about what makes life normal for other people.

We believe that for every fail story, or good story, there are about a million normal stories. So tell the world what makes your life average. Anyone can submit a story, because everyone’s lives are unexciting and insignificant at some time or another.

Why Register?

No one cares. It would let you comment on submissions, but really, does anyone need or want to read your literary flatulence?

Is your life awesome?

If it is, go away. We don’t want you here. Check out MyLifeIsG, you lucky jerk. I hope you step on a painful rock while walking barefoot. But not too painful of a rock.

Pimp Your Mom Blog?

Cheesy, right?  I had Pimp Your Headlines as a title but that sounded too nasty, too close to head lice (big fear). Although I just started this blog this year, I already have a love/hate relationship with my stats.  I check them daily (okay, more like twice a day but at least not hourly, like I have a problem or anything) and I do like it when more people read my blog.  Go figure.

 Check out this great post over at CoffeeShopBloggers  from friend and fellow blogger (http://www.pragmaticmom.com) about 10 solid tips to writing great headlines for blog posts, mommy blog or otherwise.   There are some good links to other great sites about  how to get more traffic to your site.   Disclosure – I write at Coffee Shop Bloggers, too.

Not sure I did everything I was supposed to in the article but let me know what you think.

Mommy Blogger: Love it or hate it?

NY Times

There are quite a few strong opinions about the term Mommy blogger.  I don’t particularly mind it but I do get why people take offense at this label.  Are there Daddy bloggers?  Yes, but if a man blogs about, oh, I don’t know, social media, is a he a daddy blogger or just if he writes about parenting is that his handle?  Google “Mommy Blogger” and you get 3,470,000 results.  There are clubs, discussion boards, great information and writing, like this from PhD in Parenting,  Typology of the Mommy Blogger gives a great breakdown of types of Mommy Bloggers and links to them as well. 

Yesterday I found great responses to the New York Times article on Mommy Bloggers. I list just a few here but there are so many more – please excuse inconsistency in showing links/articles.  I am a newbie and it shows but my enthusiasm for the writing should make up for it – yes?

Does the world see moms the same way the New York Times does?

Does the world see moms the same way the New York Times does?.   This is a link to a great article from PhD in Parenting with responses on the article in The New York Times on Sunday, Honey, Don’t Bother Mommy, I’m Too Busy Building My Brand.  It is clearly and wonderfully written and I am glad that I found this site.
