Coming Up On Backtalk, and a Call for Submissions

8 years ago

Our next Backtalk episode deals with first wives, second wives, parents who blogged through divorce, and those who have blended their families. Some let it all hang out and others are very discrete about what they mention.

We discuss:

Mindy, from the Mommy Blog
Mir, from Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda
Laid-Off Dad
Katie Allison Granju, who blogs about her blended family
Wicked Stepmom, who is anything but wicked

It is a great conversation and I hope you tune in and weigh in on the topic. Do you think that the rules for blogging as a step parent are different from those of the actual parent? Our own Lindsay, stepmother of two teenagers, weighs in with her point of view.

In the meantime, me and my fellow Backtalking moms are working on upcoming episodes and we would love to feature you and your blogs and your ideas. You can upload your videos right here on BlogHer's video page.

Family size! For those of you, like me, with large families, what are some of the stupidest things people have said to you about your family? I could write a book on this topic alone. For those of you with one child, what are the most insensitive remarks people have made about your decision to have "just one?" And why do strangers even care?!?!

Body Image How do you feel about your body now that you have had children? Love it? Hate it? Marvel in the miracle that is the female body? A combination of all of these? And how do we reconcile our own negative thoughts about our bodies with instilling in our daughters a positive body image?

The Business of Mommyblogging Have you used your blog as a stepping stone to a different career? Is mommyblogging a viable career all on its own? I know you all must have lots to say on this topic.
