Skimming over my blog reading list it dawned on me: most of the authors are mommies. Not the flesh-eating zombie kind (mind you according to their posts they feel like it some days minus the flesh-eating part) but the female-person-whose-egg-unites-with-a-sperm-resulting-in-the-conception-of-a-child kind. Seriously, that’s definition 1b of “mother” in the Free Dictionary.
The headlines offer reviews of their family vacations over the holidays and children’s books, DIY crafts and menu ideas, along with other shit. Yes. Shit.
Now before ya go getting all “who the fuck does she think she is” hear me out. I love moms. I have enormous respect for them whether they’re SAHM or full-time working mommies. If this journey through breast cancer with my bestie and helping out with her boys has taught me anything, it’s that momma-ing ain’t easy!
It’s just that some of my favourite blogs have turned into corporate marketing spaces. The voices have changed. They have lost much of that personalization that once left me craving and shifted to monetization. And *shocker* – all of the reviews of these products are faboosh. Well no fucken shit. Not sure how much I would be complaining about free stuff.
But it also made me realize something else: nobody likes DINKs. Most blogs - no matter who’s voice they’re written in – are family oriented. Are there no Double Income No Kiddies (Yet) bloggers?
This takes me down yet another path – cause that’s the way hammie works. Squirrel!! What companies, other than Sandals, target DINKYs?? I google it. And guess what? Not many. I find some sites where you can meet other DINKYs aka drop-your-keys-in-a-bowl-at-the-door so ya, not really my style.
I can’t say I’ve been a part of the blogosphere for long. Two weeks since hitting publish. But I’ll tell ya, in this day of self-entitlement, I’ve already promoted myself to Kick-Ass. So, if any company out there wants to target DINKYs feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to take your free shit.
