i'm applying for that mom blog thing. i don't think in a million years i'll actually get chosen, but i figured what the hell- why not apply?! what do i have to lose, right?
my hope for this is that they don't choose bloggers that already have an audience. bloggers that everyone already knows about. you see, those blogs are already read on a daily basis. those bloggers are already in the blog public eye. in my opinion, that would be fucking retarded to choose one of them. what would be the point? oh, you chose heather from dooce? how original. cause she doesn't have enough of a following? i hope that people who are relatively unknowns are chosen. people who this would be an "opportunity" for, not people who already have opportunity beating down their doors. and i hope the blogs chosen are actually worth reading, cause like i've said before- some of the popular blogs in my opinion are a fucking waste of cyber space. and i'll never understand for the life of me, WHY they even have an audience aside from the fact that maybe dooce mentioned them in a post once or something. i've given them more than one chance too. maybe they had a bad blogging day- an off day- mercury is in retrograde, whatever. but that's not it. unless their bad day has lasted a good 3 months, i'm inclined to say that these particular bloggers just suck. good lord ladies- if you're going to give certain bloggers this much attention, at least make sure their blogs are worth the time to read. cause for me, i want that time back.
i really do wonder how much of this is a fad? and how quickly it will all fade? or will it do the opposite and just continue to grow and get more popular? i guess time will tell!
ps- i will be really disappointed if becky, stephanie, ventura mom, jenn, sam and midwestern mom don't apply.
pss- i'd really love for these people (virigina belle, charming but single, dating hell ) to apply too, but they're not moms. suckers.
