Did you know the genre of my blog?
Apparently I am into the genre called "mom blogging" and I am a "mom blogger".

The organisation for which my son works has relocated all of its Indian operations to Bangalore recently and my son shifted on monday. He was getting to know some of his new colleagues. One of them who was my husband's student said to my son that he had a famous father. Apparently this is when she added "not only is your father famous, your mom is a famous mom blogger too"

Ha, so I am a mom blogger and I am famous!Yeah right, 70 people visit my blog everyday - I must be extremely famous!!!

    shalini:haha! You must be the reason why so many of your friends know me!
    And what about labelling me a "mom blogger" - Do I really talk about my son all that much?
    Wonder what the other categories are!

    Usha....small world. i think i know the colleague yr son was referring to. infact i discovered that one of my seniors works in the the same company as yr son and i was telling her that sidharth's mom is a famous blogger :) so pls take a bow

    Of course! I have talked about your blog to all my friends who know and don't know what blogging is!
    Well, all of us are proud of our children. The fact that you mention your son once in a while does not make you a MOM blogger exclusively.
    You do write about other interesting things which make you an exclusive writer.Your blog following shows that.
    Doesn't it?

    Usha, the famous blogger-mom. Congrats. Fame, well deserved.

    I have mentioned my daughters in 8 of my posts. How many more posts must a man write before you call him a dad-blogger?

  23. Usha Says:

    Sunita: Thank you.

    Anon:Mom blogging is just that - blogging by a mom.
    I am cosy here with my small group of visitors who share their thoughts with me.


    Raj:A man's actions are never hyphenated with his role. It is only a woman who gets typecast into beinga role first and then everything else!
    So no couldwrite a million blogs and you will still be a man blogger.
