Wisdom from Mom Bloggers: What Does Your Family Think About Your Blog?

By babbleeditors |

Having complete strangers read about your life is one thing … but throw family and friends into that mix, and things can get prickly. This is especially true for those mom bloggers who take the no-holds-barred approach to writing. That’s why we asked our 2011 Top 100 Mom Bloggers what their families think about their blog. From fathers who believe there’s too much talk of vaginas to kids who are more impressed with their mom’s video game skills than her writing, find out what these families’ impressions, after the jump!

Top Mom Bloggers: What Does Your Family Think of Your Blog?

They love it … except for the vagina talk

At first they didn't understand, and my father cringed each month signing his half of my student loan payments. But now they're ridiculously proud of me. Unless I write about my vagina; then we all just avoid eye contact for a week and pretend it
never happened.

    Being a new Blogger I have not had any comments yet from family except my sister who has a baby too. I just don’t dare think about it or I’d censor all I write!

  2. Brittany @barefootfoodie says:

    That’s the thing. I never think about immediate audience, otherwise I’d be paralyzed.

    I just write for myself, and I forget anyone local reads me until they remind in the middle of Target in front of my mother, we laugh, and then I toss it back outta my head:)

    I live to write about my vagina another day.
