Mummy bloggers

I have followed a lot of parenting blogs especially when dc were younger and I even had a go at blogging myself once. I still follow a few on Instagram and the like. But does anyone find that there is just a bit too much sharing of their kids lives? Every holiday, every milestone photographed and seen by millions of followers. Is it not a bit much for the kids who are too young to fully understand that their lives are being showcased in front of thousands of strangers online?

I know a lot of people slate mummy bloggers especially the ones who jokily complain about parenting but I really don't have too much of an issue with the content and think it's great that some have gone onto get book deals and whatnot. But the success and the freebies seems to come at the expense of their kids privacy and anonymity. Just wondered if other people feel the same?

I find it all boring- all the faux exasperated looks into the camera ect
But good luck to them I guess.

I think it's gotten a little contrived now but back when dc were babies I found a lot of comfort in them from knowing it wasn't just me struggling. But i do find it a bit much that the kids lives are out there for any Tom dick or Harry to see

It's just all so boring, I think we must have reached peak mummy blogger by now.

I am glad they weren't around when I had my two.
