Why I’m Not a Mom Blogger

In July, I explained why I’m not a craft blogger. Today I’ll explain why I’m not a mom blogger. Yet technically I am one, because according to Mashable, a mom blogger is any woman with kids at home who has read or contributed to a blog in the last 30 days. However, I don’t consider myself to be a mom blogger, as I primarily focus on books and writing and rarely post about my children. I do, however, know a lot about mom bloggers, as I conducted research and published an article about them.

But today, I’ll explain a bigger reason why I’m not a mom blogger. It’s because I’m not really good at all that stuff. You know, domesticity, intensive parenting, crafting, etc. Mom bloggers might post about the awesome activities they do with their children, or the neat ways they include their children in the kitchen. I don’t.

But today I’ll try. Here’s my latest attempt at being a “picture-perfect” mother.

My daughters wanted pancakes for breakfast. I can do pancakes. Easy.

However, they wanted them in shapes. Olivia wanted an Enderman (from Minecraft) and Daphne wanted Mickey Mouse. So, I attempted these shapes with the batter.
