Blogging About Parenting
October 23, 2012 4:46 PM   Subscribe

Blogging about parenting. Little Seal is about Emily Rapp's son Ronan, who is 2 1/2 and has Tay-Sachs disease. Count on Rapp for a jolt of humanity and perspective amid the mundane. Her Bad Mother is Catherine Conners, a working mom devoted to her husband and children, who chronicles the ups and downs of parenting, balancing it all with humor and poignancy. She is not afraid to speak out against mothers who believe that their way is the best way to raise kids. These blogs are among the 25 Best Blogs 2012 per Time magazine.

What Kate Wore? One of Time's 25 best? I mean, I follow that blog and everything, but I'd never actually admit it to anyone. (Oops!) Now off to investigate the rest of the list.....

Um, I have been stopped on the street numerous times and offered unsolicited, factually wrong, parenting advice. Where are all these people who ARE afraid to speak out in favor of their own parenting preferences? I would like to live near them.

Wanna swap? I have never been offered unsolicited parenting advice and I am desperate for it to happen so I can unleash my (barely) inner Tony Soprano on them. The older I get the less tolerant I am becoming of those kinds of people too. Shit, I argued with someone at a funeral last week. So here's you surrounded with all those juicy targets and I'm sailing through life begging for someone to tell me "Team Fortress 2 is not suitable for a girl" or something.

Hey, look who's on Time's original Top 25 Blogs list!

Personal blogging has definitely changed a lot over the past ten years, and I am somewhat wistful for the golden age before advertising and sponsored posts and blogging as a full-time career. But that said, I am still fascinated by parenting blogs (perhaps strangely, given that I'm not a parent) and will definitely be checking these two out.
