I stumbled upon this article recently on Romper. Literally stumbled because I left my open laptop on the dining room floor to charge. I live in an old house, and only four outlets have a hole for that little dick part of the plug at the bottom. Don’t laugh, that’s actually the name electricians use when referring to plugs, it’s “the little dick part.” And the slots are the vaginas. For more helpful electrical tips, check my book “Turning Tech Perverted,” out this Fall from Random House.
Anyway so this article about the rules for posting about parenting on Facebook is pretty solid, and I agree with all the points made. If you’re going to start dad or mom blogging, remember these, except I wouldn’t classify these as rules. If you break any, it’s on you. You live with it. No one takes away your blog or Facebook page. I’d label these suggestions before I called them rules.
I’d like to add an addendum to the series to be tagged onto every rule. I’ve learned this over the past seven years of writing about kids and parenting and all that comes with.
PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU SHIT NO MATTER WHAT
People won’t like how little you share or how you overshare or the photos you take or the comments or the suggestions or anything about your parenting. People will complain, gripe, nitpick, send messages about the language you use and the diapers you buy and the food you feed your kids or sometimes just drop a line to say you’re not funny and you suck.
Ignore them. Do want you want to do. It’s your blog/Facebook page/kid/life. If they don’t like it, tell them to suck the bottom part of the plug.
