Very soon after my son was born I found myself with lots of opinions and advice, and too few people in my real life upon which to bestow this bounty. I am clearly not alone in this feeling; there are a lot of mom blogs. There may well be more mom blogs than people who read mom blogs.
By nature I am not a bloggish writer. I tend to obsess and edit and re-edit and go on at great length over-explaining and giving too many examples. Maybe the blog form will teach me a thing or two about letting go and being terse.
