There's a new network in the blogiverse. I feel like it might be a good fit for me, and probably for you, too.
Words of Wisdom is "a place for bloggers who enjoy reading and writing great content to find each other." Its founders define great content as being thought-provoking or insightful, serious or humorous, on any topic...blog posts that make the reader stop and think and perhaps join the conversation with a well thought-out comment.
WOW was launched over the weekend. I was the 11th person to click "Follow," and as I write this there are 38. I suspect it's going to grow pretty quickly. Check it out, of you're so inclined.
It was from a member of WOW that I learned I missed some excitement last week at The Secret is in the Sauce. SITS tends to draw young moms, and it can be a great way to make new contacts, but it wasn't a good fit for me so I unsubscribed last week. At that very moment, The New York Times published its story on "mommy bloggers," featuring the Bloggy Boot Camp put on by SITS' founders. You can read Anita's take on the resulting controversy at A Woman, A Wife, A Mom.
Here's the NYT story: Honey, Don’t Bother Mommy. I’m Too Busy Building My Brand.
