(okay folks, strap on your seat belts, because I'm about to fucking blow)
The entire article is about how White mommy bloggers like Dooce aren't taken seriously, even though they are definitely a brand worth millions.
Despite the complexity of these blogging powerhouses, the mainstream media seems content to categorize them as just, well, moms. Not professional bloggers, not businesspeople, not brands in and of themselves. Despite all the potential and power in these women's blogs and the hundreds authored by other women for whom "mother" is just one in a list of identifiers, mommy bloggers - especially those who haven't hit the big time yet - are often confined to an easily caricatured realm.Oh the poor White women, never mind that amazing Black mommy bloggers are working in obscurity because of racism. How are these rich White mommy bloggers managing, only being able to take home millions of dollars a year? Can you believe that when they are on Oprah, or The Bonnie Hunt Show, or Good Morning America, that they are asked to make a cake? When, oh when, will White motherhood be taken seriously? Say it with me everyone: White women's problems.
