Beginning of Mommy Blogging
I started blogging around 2000 on BlogSpot. I remember it was right before SXSW and thought it would be a fun to write about the experiences at the conference.
Then I got pregnant and began writing about my pregnancy and future daughter. That was 2003, the beginning of mommy blogging.
Needless to say, I have been in this arena for a while. While yes, the number of blogs have rapidly increase, it definitely feels like there has been a huge rise in moms blogs and for good reason!
