Something I’ve noticed with a lot of Bloggers Blogs (and Twitter feeds) is a little bit of a ‘Stepford Wife Syndrome’ – if you’re unfamiliar with the term ‘Stepford Wife’ – Urban Dictionary is your friend..

“1.) Used to describe a servile, compliant, submissive, spineless wife who happily does her husband’s bidding and serves his every whim dutifully.

2.) Can also be used to describe a wife who is cookie-cutter & bland in appearance and behavior. Subscribes to a popular look and dares not deviate from that look.




This term is borrowed from the fictional suburb of Stepford, Connecticut in Ira Levin’s 1972 novel, The Stepford Wives, later made into movies (in 1975 and 2004). In the story, men of this seemingly ideal town have replaced their wives with attractive robotic dolls devoid of emotion or thought.”

Perhaps that’s a little harsh, but not too far wrong – so many bloggers from the outside seems to live perfect lives where Mum is constantly baking and has daaaaarrrrrling children who never misbehave (ever). It’s all rainbows and unicorns, and happy ever after.

Do people lead lives like this? Or is it garnish to make someone’s shit life look better or appealing to a passing reader? Or just some ‘aspirational reading’ ?

I’ve lived on this planet long enough to know, children can be little shits, your other half will annoy you, you’ll probably get drunk and do things you shouldn’t. You’ll be hurt and tested to your limits, but it will all get better in the end (and repeat).

Life is a beautiful colourful tapestry, a journey, a story – it’s so much more interesting to read the journey of a battle-scarred, believable person, than a beige painted ‘MumDroid 2000″.

Who are you kidding?

No one.

Some of the best bloggers out there are those who are HONEST with how they feel, and what’s going on with their lives. My three favourites for this are probably Wally Mummy, Mummy Never Sleeps and Jenny Edspire, who blog with absolutely honesty, you have no idea how much I respect I have for these three. They aren’t afraid to show their ‘life tapestry’ to the world, it’s not always easy reading – BUT it’s the truth – and you can’t knock anyone for writing with honesty.

Let’s be honest with each other, wear our scars with pride and respect each other a little more for being ‘Normal’, save the dull Stepford Wives Syndrome for the glossy, airbrushed, Lifestyle Mags.

Blog with Honesty!
