An Interview with Melinda Roberts by Jackie Papandrew
Melinda (Mindy) Roberts is one of the trailblazers of the mom blogging movement, having started her groundbreaking The Mommy Blog seven years ago. Now, as Roberts says, “Every third blog created these days seems to be called The Mommy Blog…All I’ve really managed to do is make my brand the Kleenex of the blogosphere.”
Mom Writer’s Literary Magazine just put out the new Spring/Summer 2009 Issue, and it’s definitely one worth picking up. I say “picking up” because Asha Dornfest is on the cover and I’m featured, so you might want to hang it somewhere in a heavy, gilt, museum-quality frame. Or, you can read it online. Suit yourself.
The fun thing about reading a feature for which you were interviewed MONTHS ago is seeing what’s current, what’s isn’t anymore, and what you said that maybe you shouldn’t have. I talk the same way I write: one draft, no revisions, no looking back. More balls than brain. Usually, though, there’s something funny in there I’d forgotten about, like the bit about the dueling nightstands in our house. I’m thrilled with the profile. Need a new photo, though.
But please! Have a look yourselves, and see why I practically worship Asha, co-panelist at Momversation.com and creator of the ever-more-famous ParentHacks.com.
