This article investigates the term “mommy blogger” and it’s effects on the women who are named such. The author discusses whether this term marginalizes mothers who blog about their families and children, or empowers them, as many of these mothers feel. The author discusses that this label “mommy blogger” may have people/readers recalling the label for mothers that was part of what many women learned in their childhood. This label made all mothers look ideal and perfect. Many women blogging now realize this was not and is not the reality of real motherhood.
