Mommyish Is In The Disqus Community Spotlight Featuring Our Very Own Lite Brite!

LiteBriteI think we all love Disqus. It lets us up vote, it lets us down vote and it lets us post Gifs. What’s not to love? And the love us back, because about a week ago I received a lovely email from them saying they would like to feature our little home on the internet on their community spotlight. They chose our very own Lite Brite to be featured and they illustrated her and here is what they had to say:

Mommyish is not your typical parenting site. And LiteBrite, a rad commenter from their community, is the embodiment of their commitment to fresh and open dialogue about what it takes to be a modern parent. Whether she’s commenting on sex, pregnancy, relationships, raising kids, or the occasional story about baby teeth necklaces, LiteBrite is a commenter you want around. Her personal anecdotes lend depth to her opinions, and allow her authenticity to shine through as brightly as her name suggests. Plus, she’s a roller girl. And let’s be honest, a woman who knows how to throw an elbow with a smile is going to be a sparkling addition to any community.

You can read her full interview here and it’s pretty awesome, and she says quite a few very nice things about Mommyish.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, the reason why I love my job as editor so much is because of YOU guys. You all make it so fun to come to work and you give me so many things to think about and laugh about and be touched by daily. That Disqus recognized us as being a great community says a lot, especially about all of you readers and LITE BRITE for making it such a wonderful place to waste some time on the web.

Thanks to all of you fantastic and funny and very-not-sanctimommy commenters and a special shout out to Lite Brite for always being well, Lite Brite:

    Do you realize that it is spelled Disqus?? It’s written on every page of your website. You spelled it wrong throughout this article and IN THE HEADLINE. Please correct this immediately.

    • Frances Locke

      I am going to refer to her as “Eve-bama” forever and ever, now. Thank you for this awesomeness.

    • nikki753

      I kind of liked it that way. It had a certain joie de vivre!

    • tangerinedreamer

      Much better, thank you for the swift correction.

    • Eve Vawter

      I’m glad I made you happy I corrected it right away do I get a cookie please say yes

    • Kay_Sue

      They are fresh…

    • CMJ

      Could you please correct “excite” to the proper tense immediately? It has offended my every fiber.

    • EmmaFromÉire
    • Frances Locke

      Aww, come on dude. I am positive she was just super excited. She always spells it right when I see her write it anywhere else, and my spell checker (Google Chrome’s especially) ALWAYS tries to fix it on me. I say benefit of the doubt is in order.

  • LiteBrite

    Awwwww man……

    I’m blushing now.

    • Bethany Ramos

      Congrats!!!! That is so amazing.

    • Eve Vawter

      You made me so proud

    • LiteBrite

      Thank you so much. :)

    That’s the response to my comment!! (Just thought I’d point that out ;) )

    This is awesome, by the way.

    • Frances Locke

      You’re also a pretty awesome commenter, just thought I’d let you know. You and LiteBrite (and pretty much all of our regulars) are hilarious and awesome. Mommyish is the first and only parenting community I ever felt comfortable with (which is totally why I wanted to write for them) and people like you guys are why.

    • pixie

      This is the first and only parenting blog site I’ve ever been on and I’m not likely to go anywhere anytime soon because y’all are fantastic. :)

  • Cee

    Yay Lite Brite!

  • Fuzzy Coin Laundry

    You lost me at:

    I think we all love Disqus.

    I don’t think anyone’s ever posted that on the internet, ever

    • Frances Locke

      I think we can all agree, though, that Disqus is MUCH better than Kinja. Kinja can burn in comment hell.

  • Kim’s Kitchen Sink

    I love Mommyish, and I had nothing to do with Disqus’ decision to feature y’all. But I’m darn pleased about it :)

  • Frances Locke

    LiteBrite, not only are you one of my favorite commenters (here and elsewhere, I follow you on Disqus and you are awesome) but your handle is one of my favorite things ever. LiteBrites rock my socks, but not as much as you. Brava!

    • LiteBrite

      Thank you, Frances. :)

  • DerbyGuest

    Congrats, LiteBrite! But, ugh:

    “And let’s be honest, a woman who knows how to throw an elbow with a smile is going to be a sparkling addition to any community.”

    KAY EXCEPT THROWING AN ELBOW GETS YOU A MINUTE IN THE PENALTY BOX why is that everyone’s first derby go-to it’s one of the only things you’re not supposed to do/rant

    • LiteBrite

      Ha ha…. I noticed that too. :)

    • LiteBrite

      Ha ha…I noticed that too and thought the same thing. :)

    • Amanda Nudelman

      Haha oops! Next time I’ll rely less on pop culture references to roller derby, and do a little more research. ;)
