Last week, Mediawatch* talked about “mummy bloggers” – women who’ve had children and blog about it. Technically I am one. Unsurprisingly, as I cut down on writing and spend way more time with bodily fluids, my list of blogs that I read is switching from predominantly literary blogs to predominantly parenting blogs. Here are four that I like so far:
blue milk – very much a feminist blog; often M rated for that reason. Australian. It really makes me think about the choices I’m making in my marriage and motherhood.
crappy parenting – illustrated by self-described crappy pictures – all about the hilarious (and often highly disgusting).
How to be a dad – written by two dads (from different families). You know their attitude when you see the blood spatter on the front page. They do mention sex occasionally.
Daddy Doin’ Work – This blog oozes with respect for women.
*This is a fifteen-minute show on the ABC that basically comments on ethical (and often grammatical) issues in Australia’s press.
