For the small segment of the world who uses Twitter, Fridays are special days, full of treats.
#FollowFriday (or #ff, for short) is a day when folks will tweet to recommend someone to follow… and it’s a great way to discover new resources and find new voices.
Since most AuPairMom readers, like most Americans, aren’t using Twitter, few of you would see my #FollowFriday recommendations, so I want to offer a one here — especially because today, her post features the ‘true day in the life’ of an AuPair Mom!
And, there are other reasons to keep an eye on TheMamaBee — she writes clearly, insightfully, and persuasively from a feminist perspective, about issues facing working moms everywhere (working moms like so many of you). She completely “gets it” — She recently had her second baby, who she’s breastfeeding, and she’s just started back at her full time job again. (Remember those days? Did they go by in a blur?)
Although I don’t always agree with TheMamaBee‘s stand on some issues (like whether or not there should be quotas for women on corporate boards), I always feel like I’ve learned something important after reading a post on her blog. What’s more, she often writes what I wish I were writing, if I weren’t writing what I already write.
I should note, TheMamaBee is a pal of mine. Because I had to consider whether I love her blog b/c of who she is or b/c of what she writes, I can tell your that I recommend her for both reasons.
