Dear Provo Blog Moms-

It has come to my attention that there is a bit of a clique in the blogging world. Well, the small blogging community of the LDS blog Mom. Mostly the LDS blog Mom's of Provo.

I have been blogging for a few years, and my readership has expanded from 2 or 3 family members to a little more than that. But that is not why I blog. I blog for fun. I blog because it keeps me in touch with the people I love and gives me an outlet where I can be myself and have a little fun.

In my blog wanderings/stalkings (Come on, we all "blog stalk", you are doing it now if we have never met. But I don't mind at all. In fact it is perfectly normal. Thanks for reading.) I have noticed a trend. There seems to be a blog clique. A group of chicks who started off blogging for family and fun and gathered a number of readers. These chicks then became aware of their reader roster and morphed into something more unpleasant.

There seems to be a number of afflicted blog Mommas in Provo especially.

Ladies who were once cozy and cute have turned into self appointed Provo celebrities. These are the gals who avert their eyes when recognized by another "annoying reader" on the street, then blog about how hard it is to be noticed in public.

Oh please.

Just because you are crafty, have cute kids and make a few dollars on the side with ads on your blog (or maybe even more than a few dollars) doesn't make you a celebrity. And acting like one makes you tiresome. Blogging about it makes it even worse.

So to all you ladies, you know who you are, I hope I never act that childish. And I hope you girls have a glass of humility and get back to being the ladies your vast readership originally fell in love with. Or I fear your readers will look elsewhere for entertainment.

And remember, it's a big world out there. A lot bigger than the world of the Provo Blog Momma.

* Post Script.
This was not written about anyone I know personally. This person, and other bloggers like her openly brags about their coolness and "celebrity status" via their blog and they are not kidding. I would link you to these blogs but I don't want to add to their blog traffic so I won't.
To all of you sweet Momma and Non-Momma bloggers, if you are wondering if this was about you, it is not.
Love and kisses.
