One of our newer contributors was discussing article ideas with Jill a few weeks ago and they got on the topic of the “pain point.” Her question was what is the “pain point” for postmodyrn? In other words, are we trying to keep it light around here, or do we want to get into some of the “darker” aspects of new motherhood? Postpartum depression, special needs babies, the challenges of single parenthood?
Do you have an immersion blender? You should get one. Seriously. Since buying one four years ago I have made them my go-to gift for all the newly-wedded and the newly-mommed friends in my circle. They are one of those "I totally never imagined that this would be a useful tool but now I can't live without it" kitchen gadgets. Like the garlic press. Or the foil cutter.
If you have been reading postmodyrn with any regularity, you may have noticed some subtle changes to the homepage. For one thing, you can now SUBSCRIBE easily by entering your email in the top right corner and we recommend you do so! Subscribers get postmod articles sent straight to their inboxes at noon on the day we publish (usually Monday-Wednesday-Friday). Easy-speasy.
postmodyrn made its “official” debut in November, but the truth is this project has been alive for Jill and myself for a good year. January marks our unofficial anniversary, that month when we both went home to our respective apartments one cool afternoon and announced to our husbands that we were launching a website for 4th Trimester moms.
