Here I go another blogger rant. Honestly fair warning here folks this may not be for the feint of heart and especially not for pregnant bloggers. OK I gave fair warning and if you continue reading its at your own peril. I have kept it in for too long but sadly I have just lost another great blogger read to that evil disease heck I have actually lost two in the last few weeks. Their blogs have turned into a pregnancy diary and not something I need to read up on. They said pregnancy brain was a real thing, what no-one warned me of was the effect pregnancy blog can have on many a blogger. ( note there are a couple that have kept trucking merrily along with nary a change in their posts and I thank them totally)
Another Bump Update
I quite likely may be the only person affected this way and if that is the case please feel free to move along but I really need a little validation that I am not crazy.
Often I feel like I am the only person in the world not interested in what your bump looks like, feels like or even what you are craving. Now thanks to the “internets” I know the exact size of every baby to be at every week, heck sometimes at every day. Honestly avacados, watermelons, cucumbers is this really a thing?
What happened to the days when one just appreciated being asked how are you feeling? And when I ask that I really do not want to hear, I pee three times during the night, I miss spicy tuna, and/or what you are craving. I was looking for ” I am fine Thanks, how are you”. Does that make me awful or just real?
Why the Fascination
So to my real issue, why do so many awesome bloggers become pregnant and change? I get that your body is different and you will be a Mom. Quite likely you will even want to start blogging about the baby and life changes. BUT why is there such a fascination with:
How big you are
What you miss
What you crave
you know the list, the posts are pretty much identical. I checked it out on Pinterest, there is an honest to god template. OK I am kidding you, there totally isn’t or I should say wasn’t cuz guess what I just created for you. I know I may be not reading your blog anymore but I do still care. Here is a Bump Update Printable just for you
Do not misunderstand, I totally get that there is probably a real market for this. Well at least I hope so because I have totally unfollowed but I am guessing I am no longer your target audience. Like many I am way past that fascination in life, I mean I love little Sea Bass and really want to know about his milestones but totally did not crave reading a post about how Carly was eating, feeling, sleeping. Sad to say, did care how she was feeling I just never felt the need to read it.
I swear its like Bloggers believe they need to re-create What to Expect when you are Expecting in living breathing scary detail.
Fruits and Veggies
Google Bump Update I dare you. So many pictures and seriously to the one who posted her bare six week tummy, there is nothing to show seriously. A Bump update at least should require a bump don’t you think.
Totally get it folks, I am a totally awful person I just really miss your witty stories and your great outfits and the fact you most likely will never again be blogging about what I want to read. I miss you, there I said it.
Other Posts I don’t Read
Ok well I am stumped now, I went on such a rant about your pregnancy bump posts that I totally lost the rest of my thoughts. No I didn’t I was just giving you a breather. Wraps, you know the posts I mean those saran wrap diet posts. I am also not big on Money posts, exercise posts nor diet posts. There I said it. Give me clothes Travel, food, crafts even cats, dogs and kids and I am totally fine.
Please forgive me, I really do just miss your fun posts.
