Before the days of the Internet, mothers still gathered when they felt called into action. The phone was the uniting force. Now with the internet, a mere mom with a blog can create what is called a “blogstorm” on any number of topics or use blogging to connect with moms facing similar issues.
First, the League of Maternal Justice, their cause is taking issue with Facebook’s removal of pictures of nursing mothers. They have created what they call the “Boob Squad” and on October 10th, they are making a call for all moms out there to “Bare your boobs for justice in the Great Virtual Breast Fest of 2007.”
Adoption is an often covered topic by some Moms (and Dads too), I found an interesting perspective on adoption written from the eyes of Jenna Hatfield of Ohio who’s first child was placed for adoption. Jenna is the main writer behind Birth-First Parent Blog a resource for those looking for advice and information.
Hope and Megan are a lesbian couple here in Ohio. Hope is the main writer of the blog http://hopemcg.livejournal.com”Cha Cherry Cola where their life adventures with daughter Quinn are shared along with the trials and tribulations of attempting artificial insemination for baby number two to be a part of their family.
Former Ohioan, Judy Nichols is a mystery writer and when she’s not figuring out how to end her latest “who dunnit”, she can be found on Rantings of a Crazed Soccer Mom. Her views on politics, crime or life in general is what she focuses on with no holds barred.
