I needed non-mommy bloggers and I needed them now!
A few weeks back I was scrolling through my instagram feed, I was scrolling and scrolling-like we all do- when I got kind of annoyed. Almost every picture on my feed was in regards to someone: being pregnant, showing a picture of their child, showing a picture of themselves at the water park (while I was at work mind you), and other ones that I just can't remember right now. Now, lets get things straight. I'm happy for these people, glad that they have these opportunities and I am in no way discrediting them or calling them annoying-in fact I'm sure I liked (double tapped) all the pictures. I'm a crazy liker. But here's the thing... I cannot relate to them one bit.
So that's when it hit me, I needed to reach out and find some of my fellow bloggers-and I knew they were out there-to follow along with. I needed someone to relate to, someone to be able to talk to about work, the kind where we both agree about how crazy/nice/unreal/annoying/over with our co-workers, or consumers, or bosses, or even just drivers that we have to deal with on our way to work, can be to work with. Also, those descriptions were in no particular order...
So I tweeted, I facebooked and I tweeted some more, and I found it. I was told-on twitter-about a facebook group for non-mommy bloggers, it was like the light at the end of the tunnel. So I have for you a list of non-mommy bloggers... I've developed the name "Not Your Typical Blogger" to describe us because... well I couldn't come up with a more creative one. If you have any ideas plllllease send your ideas my way!
You can put this button on your blog, or pin it so that you can refer back to all of us "Not Your Typical Blogger"s. (:
Happy Friday! If you are a non-mommy blogger please link up your blog name and link in the comments! We'd love for you to join us!
Again, I want to say that this post is in no way trying to say that mommy bloggers don't matter-heck if I get to be a mom I'd post about the same thing-it's just a different kind of outreach for us! Thanks for understanding!
