Baby Bloggers Go Big Times

Congratulations to Jay Allen of The Zero Boss for making it to the big time - the Sunday Edition of The New York Times. There's a nice article on parent blogging, or if you prefer baby blogging, and the parent bloggers.

Being the Times though, they over analyze the hell out of the motives behind parent bloggers. They miss the obvious though - parenting produces lots of good stories and very few people to tell them to; a situation blogging addresses.


Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Baby Bloggers Go Big Times:

In my opinion, what ... (Below threshold)

In my opinion, what he was writing was JUST his opinion, and not news, NOT facts.
The point that he missed is that there are some really good writers out there. It doesn't matter if they are self absorbed, narcissistic, or even boorish, if they write well, they are worth reading. His article, with all of its mistakes, was, in my opinion, not worth reading.
