If you’ve heard about our contest to recruit mommy bloggers for the Merrimack Valley Moms blog (see details in earlier post), you may have asked yourself: “What would I have to blog about?” It’s a good question. So, we thought it would be helpful to give you a feel for what motivates some of the most popular mommy bloggers out there.
One of the top mommy blogs is “Thoughts from the Trenches.” Check them out at http://mommytrenches.blogspot.com. It’s written by a collection of about eleven women and they do a great job on their home page explaining what drives them to blog. Here’s an excerpt from the introduction to their blog that helps define their inspiration:
Mommy Blog: Thoughts from the Trenches
Who are we?
We are mothers with something to say. While we’re busy with the daily grind of raising our wonderful kids (among us 20 and counting), we think big (or small, or just plain funny) thoughts. And our kids inspire us. We write our memories, revelations, and kicks-in-the-pants here to share them and to save them.
Why this blog?
Because it’s not just misery that loves company. It’s joy, laughter, tears, successes, celebrations, thoughts, happy days and sad that all love company.
So what would you blog about? Your life. The great stuff and the challenges.
We invited you to tell us why you’d make a great mommy blogger for the Merrimack Valley area. Post your entry on the wall of Lowell General Hospital’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/LowellGeneralHosp. Your submission can either be a written narrative or a video that you upload to the Facebook page. It’s your choice.
