“Yep, Naomi and Stacie and Stephanie and Liz are Mormons. They're members of a large, close-knit network of Mormon lifestyle bloggers -- young stay-at-home-moms who blog about home and hearth, Latter-day Saint-style.…. Mormon lifestyle bloggers occupy their very own corner of the blogosphere.
Their lives are nothing like mine -- I'm your standard-issue late-20-something childless overeducated atheist feminist -- yet I'm completely obsessed with their blogs. On an average day, I'll skim through a half-dozen Mormon blogs, looking at Polaroids of dogs in raincoats or kids in bow ties, reading gratitude lists, admiring sewing projects.”
I loved this! Though I don’t have 10,000 followers, live in a hip city, or wear vintage clothing, I am a Mormon. I am mid-20's. I do blog. And I do have a “baby gap ad” toddler. (Her words, not mine.) So, as much as I long to have a blog that reflects Cjane’s style, at least now I can feel confident that I’m in the same circle, right? I share the same “corner of the blogosphere”. Really the common attraction here is being a Member. The gospel is happy! And it shines through, even in blogs.
I guess I just needed a little pep-talk. And who better to give me one then myself?

One more thing. Thank you to all the popular “Mormon Housewife Blogs” for being good examples to your non-member readers and for keeping the 50’s lifestyle cool. Keep drinking your ridiculous amounts of hot chocolate. (Again, her words, not mine.)
Also...this is my 200th post. Sweet!
