Mommy blogs are a much read and much maligned phenomenon.  In March of 2010, The New York Times published an article called “Honey, Don’t Bother Mommy, I’m Too Busy Building My Brand.”  The uproar in the mommy blog community was instant and intense.

In a fast talking rant of my own, I analyze the mommy blog surge, the reasons for the backlash, and the overall power a successful mommy blogger can yield.
