Guest post by Mommy blogger from Birmingham, UK. mommaboss.co.uk
I’m going to have a laugh about… Mummy bloggers! That’s right I’m making fun of myself. When you choose to put your whole life out there online for all to read about, occasionally you will inevitably encounter somebody that mocks you. So do you want to know a fun way to overcome this problem? Mock yourself!
Self deprecation can actually be a sign of intelligence. It shows understanding for other people’s opinions and shows that you don’t take yourself too seriously. To all you clever blogging Mommas out there, join in for a laugh! What type of blogger are you? Have I missed out your type?
1. The Philosophical over-thinker.
Most Common Blog: the inner workings of their crazy mind. Their theories on life including abstract baby theories on potty training, weaning etc.
Don’t tell her: her blog is crap. She’ll write a blog to psycho analyse you and how your upbringing has shaped your hatred.
2. The Organic Health Freak.
Most Common Blog: the importance of teaching children about germs. How to make your own baby purée from scratch using only the finest fresh produce.
Don’t tell her: you use cow and gate jars. Just no.
2. The FML moaner.
Most Common Blog: it’s crap being a mom. I’ve lost all my friends since I’ve had a baby. Nobody ever tells you how hectic babies are. Babies poo too much.
Don’t tell her: you love being a mom. You might lose an eye or something.
4. The Reformed Wise Owl.
Most Common Blog: I used to be a bitch/ judgemental/ hated kids. Now that I’m a mom I understand everything about life and I’m here to show you the way.
Don’t tell her: you judge people. She’ll want to adopt you to show you the light.
5. The Crafty Ones.
Most Common Blog: how to make a nativity scene using common household trash. How to turn tidying up into a fun family game.
Don’t tell her: your kid has an iPad. She’ll lecture you on the importance of imaginative play.
6. The Super Savvy Experts.
Most Common Blog: how to make family meals for 10 on a budget of £3. How to get a family of 6 into Alton Towers for free this bank holiday.
Don’t tell her: you’re in your overdraft. Didn’t you collect a single coupon this week? What is wrong with you?
I think it’s now apparent that I’m a philosophical over-thinker! I think about thinking and write about writing.
