I saw The Dirty Whores of Blog Dot Mom from LA Moms Blog pop up on Twitter thanks to @MOM101. I agree. It's required reading. I absolutely can't wait to hear what you think.
Says post author Ciaran Blumenfeld:
And you?I'm not buying the Dirty Whores of Blog Dot Mom Legend. I am pissed off about it. I'm sick of bloggers feeling uncomfortable or defensive about what they do. Why the need to apologize and explain themselves without any actual evidence of wrong doing? In the absence of this evidence, all I can say is that I wholeheartedly support women being paid for their work. I think recognition, in the form of ads and sponsorship is an applaudable thing. It's an appropriate reward for those whose leadership qualities, talent and abilities have enabled them to entertain and inspire readers. Without the financial support, many of them would not be able to continue writing. And the world would be a dimmer place.
