Thankful for Being A Mom Blogger Who Techs

I had one of those defining moments yesterday at a pre-Thanksgiving celebration. I was talking to a man who is a muckity-muck (Executive) at a top technology company. Armed with a long list of tech and gadget blogs I read every day, I asked "what blogs do you read?".

His answer, made me stop and think. Here is a summary of our discussion:

Tech Muckity-Muck Executive Guy: I read the Silicon Valley Moms Blog and another mom blog along with tech blogs.

TechMama: What, you read Silicon Valley Moms Blog and another moms blog?

Tech Muckity-Muck Executive Guy: Yes, I really enjoy reading mom blogs. The moms are "real" and (as a father myself) I relate to their experiences.

TechMama (who is also Chief Technology Mom and one of the Co-Founders of the Silicon Valley Moms Group blogs): Blush, Blush... Well - that is great.

...quiet moment, Techmama trying to hide her surprise that Tech Muckity-Muck Guys read mom blogs...decided to change the subject...

TechMama: So tell me what at your favorite technology gadgets, I am in the middle of writing my technology guide...

So today, on Thanksgiving I am sharing being thankful to be a mom blogger and a tech blogger, and have access to the amazing communities related to both areas. I decided to share more of my personal opinions on TechMamas instead of only going all tech newsy and gadgety. In my effort to build my creds as a tech blogger I somehow stopped sharing my personal opinions. Today I decided I can do both.

So is born the category "my two cents".

Happy Thanksgiving, especially to Tech Muckity-Muck Guys who read mom blogs. Or as my mom blogger buddy Jessica from the LA Moms Blog says "I am a Mother - not a mom blogger".

UPDATE: I don't want to forget the amazing Dad Bloggers, I just got a Thanksgiving email from one (Gunfigher: A Modern Warrior's Life) today so I decided to add them to my thankful list. Of course my favorite Dad Blogger is hubby Neil Blecherman.
