Yes, you thought I was gone, but I'm not really gone yet. After five hours of errands, I have returned to my default position in front of the computer. Amy P pointed me to a post on Amy Welborn's blog about the mommybloggers and the dust-up over a pair of Crocs.
Here are the relevant links. Read Amy Welborn's post (scroll down a bit) for her great assessment of the mommybloggers. "As far as I can say, the two major MommyBlogging subcultures are: 1) The Christians and 2) The Don't-Give-A-F***- MommyBloggers who are in turn either a) of the "Martini Play Date" cadre or b) some version of really green/punk/boho/unschooling visionaries."
Welborn also explains that a big explosion can be happening with one, very large group of bloggers and nobody else has a clue. So very true. I guess there's a lot of fighting going on right now about swag. Dude, where's my swag? I have to mommyblog more often. Anyway, you can read about the Croc incident here.
