No, I’m Not Bitter at All

So the OC Register decided way late to jump on the mommyblogging bandwagon and start their own “Mom Blog” section.

And so where was my invitation to join? It must have gotten lost in the mail.

But I’ve always wondered why newspapers feel the need to have blogs when by their very nature, blogs are almost the exact opposite of what a newspaper should be.

However, some of the mommybloggers on the Register need to find their unique voice and soon, because there are a ton of unpaid bloggers out there who are more compelling and interesting.    Not to say that there aren’t kernels of talent there, but only a few are really standing out from the pack.

I will give the Register kudos for including dads into the mix.

PS I am totally loving this new platform, and it makes doing this ever so much easier!  Thanks, Metroblogging HQ!

    Hi Gina,

    ‘Kernel of talent’ here.

    I am one of the mommybloggers on The Register’s site. My blog is "Mommy’s Mind Is Not A Toy"… um, I am one of the kernels….no? I think they did a good job mixing it up with all sorts of moms (and dads.) I have my favorites too, but I think they all have their own voice. That is the beauty of blogging.

    I thought you might be interested in this interview with Terry Horne, the publisher of the Register, talking about the direction of the ocregister.com
    http://www.ocregister.com/money/register-horne-local-1983563-news-newspaper It sounds like everything is changing for every sort of media–the Register included.

    Do you have an Orange County mommyblog or personal blog? It isn’t listed in your profile.

    I too like the new look of Metroblogging, haven’t been here for a while.
