Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Melinda Roberts is a transplanted Chicagoan living in the Bay Area with her three native children. She has ridden the bounty and collapse of the Silicon Valley high-tech industry and is recovering from a long career in the nonprofit sector. She lives and breathes technology, and tries her best to use her powers for good.
Mindy spent twelve years as a mild-mannered nonprofit employee. In 2002, after the birth of her third child in four years, she began to write about her life and children in the sleepless hours in an effort to capture her young family's world in real time. This chronicle of her family's adventures and mishaps through a chaotic period of marital, emotional, and financial strife has just been adapted to Melinda's first book, Mommy Confidential: Adventures From the Wonderbelly of Motherhood.
Witty, sarcastic, and always engaging, Mindy chronicles her life, and that of her children. She tackles the good and the bad with a broad stroke and a sense of humor that give her writing depth and an emotional pull. Besides her obvious, tender love for her children, The Mommy Blog is a place where Mindy reveals some of her fears and disappointments, and talks about her hopes for the future. Readers have laughed and cried along with her, finding inspiration in Mindy's tales.
Known for its wide-ranging vocabulary and sharp insight into matters both personal and global, The Mommy Blog is a showcase for Mindy's unique spin. She's quick to highlight other bloggers. With her poise (we assume from her modeling background) and her inner strength (from her tomboyish childhood in Chicago, perhaps), Mindy is a staunch ally.
I have been blogging since...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
Thanks for adding me! I love your blog and have been reading it for a while. It is so funny and relatable, and is one of the blogs that really convinced me to go for it and see what happens.

What's Wrong With Mommy?
I became the mother at the age of 20. The feeling I got is inexpressible. I was not prepared to take this responsibility. I was unemployed. My mother died when I was very young. I had to struggle a lot to earn a livelihood. It was a very struggling era of my time. I cried when I…
