It appears that the new status symbol for moms is a baby blog. Two examples from our friends Alex and Lara and Erin and Josh. My wife reads them regularly. But she doesn't read my blogs, which (I must confess) is a little tough on the ego. When cornered, her first response: "I don't know where your blogs are located." (Try Googling "eric goldman blog" or looking at the signature line of every email I send). Quickly recognizing the weakness of that retort, she went for the jugular: "I'd read your blogs if you wrote about something interesting." Other people's babies = interesting; husband's own writing = not!
The trick is to make stuff up in your blog, plus to leave a cliffhanger ending with each post.
Or you could always try a video blog on youtube
