"WHAT NOT TO SAY TO MOM"S OF TWINS!" "WHAT NOT TO SAY TO YOUNG MOMS!" WHAT NOT TO SAY TO OLDER MOM'S!" WHAT NOT TO SAY TO ANYONE WHO LOOKS AT YOU!"
And also different from the "Mommy is allowed to drink wine" "Mommy is allowed to plop kid in front of the TV" posts-which I am guilty of too. I'm not saying tthey are all bad. It's just,everything is SO sarcastic, including my own writing, and I thought something genuine would be a nice switcharoo.
So anyway, I submit and I get an email back that "Thank you, but it is not quite right for Babble" That's fine. Whateves, I tried, and I understand that people aren't always going to like what I write. I wasn't mad or anything...I'm still not mad. I barely proofread my own blog.
BUT if THIS is what Babble is selling, I'm not buying, and I refuse to read anything or go to their website again and I am defriending them on facebook. Calling your kid a pussy in your blog is not okay. It's a stupid, trashy, low rent way to get blog hits. I would never do that to Georgia, let alone ever think that about her-and if that is the new, cool way to parent, I do NOT want to be part of it!
Reiterating, I do NOT think I am the best writer, or that I deserve to be on a parenting website. But that post pretty much disgusted me. And I am not disgusted by much.
*Hairflips out of babble!
I do realize that by linking to the website, they are getting more hits-should I copy and paste also and take the link off? I still don't know much about linking, live links, and all that jazz.
