    I think that blogging may make you a better parent in the sense that you can post about things that happen in your life and get feedback about it from a lot of different people – it gives you the opportunity to pick the brains of a wider range of people than you normally would have if you were just limited to your group of live, in person, real time friends. It also, to some degree, encapsulates the relationships that I think that women have had forever – you talk about problems that you have with other parents and you get ideas on how to deal with it. This just expands that.

    On the other hand, I can see how it can detract from being a parent. There are times when I read other blogs and I get really insecure and then I get grumpy and that’s not good. There are also times when I think, in my opinion, that some parents cross the line with regards to the privacy of their child in their blog – and I am jealous of that too – because that could impact the relationship that you have with your child later on in life.

    I guess it’s a double edged sword…

    That’s a tough one. I feel more connected to the outside world….and to other parents now that I’m a blogger. I think my support group has increased since blogging, and that certainly helps. I feel like a better PERSON now. But I often miss the days when my only job was watching my kids and taking care of the house. I feel like I was a better mom back then.

    I absolutely think so. I have found my “tribe,” my support system through my blog and we provide a lot of very necessary support to one another. Without that network of friends, I would likely lose my mind! I also love the fact that, with a few keystrokes, I can keep track of my son’s growth, development and milestones. My blog is literally my baby book. It also helps me learn more about myself as a mom, wife and person. My blog and my place in the blogging community is definitely one of the biggest blessings in my life.

    I think it does make me a better parent. it motivates me to get all those projects for the kids, come up with something new and take them lots of places.

    I also have an outlet when no one is around apart from the kids so I don’t get frustrated!
