I am a writer not a mommy blogger

Please don't call me a mommy blogger. I'm a writer. I may not do a daily blog, tweet my current thoughts hourly or have a huge following on Facebook, but that doesn't mean I am not writing. If my blog goes unpublished, my Facebook status is left alone and I don't attend tweet-ups, it's probably because I am busy writing for someone else. I make my living with words and that means long hours with lots of research, pitching to editors, lots of rejection and writing to deadline with a final word count. I've worked long and hard for this career and despite being good at what I do, most of the time my work goes unnoticed. So, please don't call me a mommy blogger. I'm a writer.
