You Shouldn't Be a Mom Blogger If…

Becoming part of the mom blogging community is easy, all you’ve gotta do is be a mom with a blog. No membership fee. No annual contract. Just you, us, and a whole lot of glorious belonging.

As beautiful as the mom blogging experience is, it’s not always rainbows and butterflies. As our universal club of unlimited membership grows, we each learn individual lessons about the darker side of blogging.

Try as I might to convince every mother I know to join our blogging sorority, we all know mom blogging isn’t for everyone.

In fact, moms facing these hurdles might want to think twice before starting that blog.
