Coming Up On Backtalk, Call For Submissions

8 years ago

We're talking about sex, baby.

In Episode 3, TMI- Too Much Information, we are talking about sex and the mommyblogger. Some of us never write about sex, some of us write about it frequently and with great detail. It is after all what got us into the mommy(blogger) predicament in the first place.

But we wonder... how much is too much to share? What do you feel comfortable putting out there? I share a story that happened recently that I chose not to blog... except whoops, now I have blabbed about it on video.

Some of my favorite moms share the worst pregnancy comments they have ever gotten. You know the ones. The worst comment I had was by the wife of a former boss of my husband. We were at a party and she grabbed me and turned me around and said, "Wow, your ass is SO HUGE you must be having a girl." In front of a room full of people. And then she kept saying versions of that same thing all night long to everyone who walked near me. I told her that if in fact I did have a girl that I would forgive her. Surprisingly, I had a girl, but turns out I am still annoyed!

We are hard at work on upcoming episodes and we’d love to feature you, your blogs, and your video! You can upload your video right here on BlogHer's video page or use any other video sharing service and leave us the link.

Here are a few questions for you to think about…

What do you love about your kid's school? What do you hate? What do you think about the state of our education system right now? We want your rants, your raves, and your no-holds-barred opinions! Do you homeschool? What made you chose that path?

How is the economy affecting your family? Are you or your spouse out of a job? Are you saving in the event that one of you gets laid off down the road? Are you feeling anxiety or powerlessness over what's going on?

For those of you with one child, what are the most insensitive remarks people have made about your decision to have "just one?" On the flip side, for those of you with large families, what are some of the stupidest things people have said to you about your brood? Why does family size matter so much to perfect strangers? (OH BOY, do I have a lot to say about this!)

Leave us a link if you have written recently on any of these topics, or get that webcam working! We are use to reading your words, now we would love to hear them!
