[Wild Cozy Truth 31] The Old Blogosphere, Mom Blogs, Working Moms, and Wellness with Heidi Schmidt


This episode begins with an unedited journal entry from the month before my move to Minnesota. The anticipatory grief was strong but you can hear the hope in my word. Then I sit down with Heidi Schmidt, who launched her brand new video podcast this week called Only One Mom. Together we reflect on the good old days of blogging, from LiveJournal to 20 Something Bloggers, and share the disappointment in how commercialized blogging has become. Mom blogs are especially problematic. Heidi shares a bit about the unique struggles of working moms and the importance of prioritizing physical fitness as self-care.
