10 Jobs Taken More Seriously Than Mommy Blogger


Gregory Johnson

It’s no secret that I am not a fan of the title “mommy blogger.” I’m not ashamed to be a parent or a writer who writes about parenting, but I don’t think that defines me or my career. In an ideal world, I would prefer to be referred to as a “parenting writer,” or even a “mom blogger” (because the idea of adults who aren’t my children calling me “mommy” anything is a little ick to me). That being said, I think it’s problematic that certain people (*cough misogynists cough*) think it’s okay to use “mommy blogger” as a put down, in a way you never hear when the discussion is about video game blogging or fashion blogging (two other subjects I’ve written about extensively).

This who snafu with Eve Vawter and the troglodytes who commented on her CNN interview got me thinking, does anyone take mommy blogging seriously? More importantly, what jobs are supposedly more important than mommy blogging? Below are ten jobs taken more seriously than mommy blogging.

10. The lady who writes the Bigfoot erotica

9. Canine Anal Gland Cleaner

8. Maggot Farmer

7. Chicken Sexer

6. Fart Statistician (yes this is a thing)

5. Portable Toilet Cleaner

4. Whale Snot Collector

3. Guano Collector

2. Vomit Collector

1. Porn Fluffer

    Love!!! But really, my dog had a swollen ass gland, and I almost made my husband google how to express anal glands himself.

      My husband DOES THIS. It’s as disgusting as it sounds too.

    • Bethany Ramos

      Shut up!!!!! He’s the best person alive.

      My lil sis is a veterinarian, so she does this for our dog :) plus free dentals and shots heyyyy

      My dog has oddly placed anal glands, in keeping with everything else about him that’s completely wrong/odd/misfitting. It’s all fun and games until you’re chasing a dog with a hot compress, trying to feel up his asshole, saying, “I promise it will make you feel better!”

      This right here is why I’m a cat person.

  • Williwaw

    I might be really naive, but what’s a porn fluffer?

    Also all these jobs sound horrid, except that writing Bigfoot erotica might be fun. So many exciting synonyms for “hairy”…

    • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

      Gooooooogle it. It’ll be fun, I promise. It won’t take you anywhere weird or creepy, at all. I promise *crosses fingers.*

    • Bethany Ramos

      OMG haha. Fun fact: my mom constantly uses the word Fluffer in the wrong context, and it makes me sad.

    • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

      Maybe she’s a troll mom and she’s been messing with your head for years :)

    • Itpainsmetosay

      fluff for the muff

    • Shelly Lloyd

      Just in-case you have not googled it, or are too scared too (which would be wise) a porn fluffer is the person who works on the set of a porn movie who’s job it is to get the male actors’ penises erect when he is about to start filming a scene.

    • Williwaw

      Haha, yes, I Googled it. The article I found claimed that the fluffer was considered part of the Makeup crew. Uh, right.

    Maybe people would have more respect for mommy bloggers if they didn’t vomit up their opinions on every viral story that’s a complete hoax.
    The gay dads birthday invite
    Kate Hunt story
    Tippers for the waitress who refused to tip based on her lifestyle
    The little boy and the headband at Walmart
    I could go on, but you get the picture. These were all stories put up without even a smidgen of research.

      Eat a dick.

    • brebay

      No one ever actually ate a dick; it was just a hoax, so don’t ever, ever talk about dick-eating ever again!

    • guest

      I’m shocked this got upvoted (but not really). God forbid anyone dare criticize “writers” on this site for not researching their pieces. No logical argument? Insult the person making a valid argument. Got it.

    • brebay

      And if they aren’t true they must never EVER be used as a way to open a conversation about discrimination in our society, right?

    • Guest

      That makes absolutely no sense. If anything those false stories hurt people who face ACTUAL discrimination. No one will believe them when it actually does happen because everyone will be conditioned to believe it’s a hoax.

    • brebay

      If you really believe there is no discrimination and that people don’t face it every day, just because some hoaxes exist, you could probably be conditioned to eat worms.

    I wanna be a Chicks Sexer

    But I’m unqualified :(
