Other thoughts for the week

I’ve been immersing myself in the environment I’m trying to engage with. So far I have learned the following:

  • There are loads of Mommy blogs–duh.
  • So many of the popular ones seem to be based on NYC living or California nature-parenting. You’re either country, or city. Is there an in-between?
  • Some obviously are selling sponsored products while the best are subtly interjecting those items. Ads on the more high caliber blogs are not imposing but integrated in the content. Others, like DIY blogs, have pages dedicated to “where to buy”.

I’ve been using best-of sites to suss out the ones that I admire most. My next field of inquiry will be a search through WordPress specific sites to see if there are any that might be interesting to pursue.
