BlogHer directory debut

August 28th, 2009 by admin Leave a reply »

I feel like an official blogger. As of today, Baking with Carter is listed on the BlogHer directory! It’s in both the Food and Drink and the Mommy and Family categories. BlogHer is the community site for women bloggers. While the requirements are not onerous (I’m female who has been regularly blogging for more than a month, so I pass), you still need to apply to have your blog added to the BlogHer directory. Then you wait a few weeks for an editor to review and approve it. Today the stamp of approval came through.

Being considered an actual blogger is exciting, but making a commitment to blogging is also unsettling. Why have I voluntarily added to my perpetual, long, and unending to-do list?  As if being a working mom weren’t keeping me busy enough. Time with Carter and my job almost never get short shrift; sleeping and eating (not to mention exercising and spending time with my husband) almost always do. 

I don’t know the answer. But maybe blogging will help me figure it out.



  1. Well, I think your blog is an adorable idea. And will probably help other parents who want their kids to learn the joys of cooking, especially boys.

    And just think of the wonderful record you will have of Carter growing up, all without having to use pinking shears.

    (I’m hopeful pinking shears is an actually relevant term to scrapbooking. Not being a scrapbooker, i actually have no idea!)

    Thank you for your kind words. I’ve never made a scrapbook, but I sew (in a fashion) and have been meaning to get some pinking shears. Many simple things, like this, never make it off that to-do list, though. Hence my puzzlement at actually having launched a blog.

    I hope you’ll visit again, and it’s much appreciated if you would tell any friends who might be interested. —Elizabeth
