I have just taken The Mom Pledge. I have seen this button in the sidebar of almost all of the blogs I follow and wondered what they were but never looked into them until today.
The Pledge in a nut shell is Social Networking Moms joining together to stop cyberbulling, to treat fellow bloggers with respect and to refuse to acknowledge mean comments.
I read about the pledge when I saw a cruel comment on a blog I follow and love. It is really terrible to know someone can be so mean and even attack another woman and her children period. We are all doing our best to be a great mothers to our children and how we decide to parent is our choice.
I decide to blog because I needed a space that I could call my own, a space that I could write what I wanted and not be judged because really you can judge me if you want to but if you keep those mean comments to yourself I will never know :) and I love that. And if you really feel the need to say something mean or that I may not like guess what, I will delete it :) So this pledge to me is giving me the freedom to really use my blog for what I want. So thank you Elisabeth for starting this.
