Follow Friday: Miss Britt
I was talking today to Marc and Karen about how “Follow Friday” has become an unofficial Twitter tradition. It’s not complicated: on Fridays, people tweet the names of a few people they think their followers should check out. But that gave me an idea. So I’ve decided to bring that here and, once a week, point you to someone I think is worth your eyeballs.
I suppose technically Britt is “one of those mommybloggers”. But that’s like saying that the Mona Lisa is just an art project. Like saying that Tostitos Scoops are just tortilla chips. (I’m sorry, but – miniature edible salsa bowls? Genius! Where’s the Nobel Prize for that? …But I digress.)
If Britt is a mommyblogger, than every condescending preconception you had about mommybloggers (Like the urge you just had to make a mommyblogger/conception joke right there. Don’t lie. You know you had it.) is a great big pile of stupid.
Britt is, hands down, the most powerfully honest, the most forthright, the most heart-wrenchingly herself writer that I’ve ever known, on paper or online. She is funny and silly and unstoppably caring and she will make you laugh in self-recognition or in a painfully awkward shared experience or just in the joy of the randomly funny moments of life.
And then she’ll turn on a dime and make your heart wrench itself down into the pit of your stomach.
No holds are barred, no topics are taboo, no punches are pulled.
Britt writes like I want to write. And Britt sees herself with a clarity that I strive for.
I adore her, and I’m so glad I’ve gotten to know her over the last year.
(Even if she is “one of those mommybloggers”.)
Check her out. I don’t think you’ll be sorry.
