Parenting With Playdate Planet – Get The Inside Scoop on Blogging From Scary Mommy Jill Smokler and BlogHer CEO Lisa Stone

Hundreds of millions of people follow blogs written by parents just like you. Have you thought about blogging yourself, but don’t know how to begin? Do you read blogs and want the inside scoop about what is going on in the blogging industry? Or perhaps you’re just a fan of Scary Mommy, one of the most popular mom bloggers on the Net. If so, then this show is sure to end up one of your favorites. On this week’s episode, I talk with Lisa Stone, the co-founder and CEO of BlogHer, a hugely successful blogging community and social publisher, about how women have taken to blogging to get their voices heard and profit financially. The show also includes my super fun conversation with New York Times best-selling author, Jill Smokler aka Scary Mommy, known for her frequently hilarious, and always honest, take on motherhood.

After you listen to the show, you will want to head over to BlogHer and enjoy the amazing and diverse collection of voices represented on that platform. It’s also a great place to start if you want to try your hand at blogging. And don’t forget to visit Scary Mommy to catch up on Jill’s latest blog posts, read more about her books (they make great holiday and baby shower gifts!), and participate in her Thanksgiving charity drive.
