Blogging and Tweeting About Children in Their Voice

Would You Blog or Tweet in the Voice of Your Child?

If everybody gets 15 minutes of fame, do mamas who blog for their children get 30? With moms and dads tweeting, blogging, and updating their Facebook statuses about their lil ones around the clock, many of the sites look more like parenting outlets than the social networking spaces they were in their early days. Seventy-five percent of LilSugar readers believe it is OK to blog about their children, telling anecdotes about their daily activities and posting photos for friends, family, and strangers to browse.

Our fellow PTA moms aren't the only ones doing so, either. Celebrities like Denise Richards, Brooke Burke, and Lisa Rinna spend a significant amount of time online — posting cell phone pictures of their kids, asking for parenting advice, and doling out advice of their own.

What's next? Some parents are even taking it further, blogging and tweeting in the voice of their tots, taking on their personas, and sharing their children's supposed thoughts. A Seattle mom-to-be is even tweeting from her unborn child's point of view. Do you think it's cute when adults blog from their children's point of view, or a bit over the top?

For those of you who are interested in letting people actually hear your child, check out this neat app. You can record things like their first word by calling a number and post it to twitter for friends and family to hear. Its super easy, free, and my family has really enjoyed it! Find it here www.voicefortwitter.com

I couldn't blog in the voice of my child. She's way funnier than I am. :(

I have a friend who has a FB page for his child too and I think its a great idea because then only the people who friend the baby and are interested in seeing his progress will see updates. And all of my friend's former college buddies are spared. Works out well in my opinion!

It annoys me so I just don't read it. There's a market for everything so I'm sure someone wants the details, the pet/baby-voiced messages.

Nope. But I might blog in the voice of my dog Bonnie and I follow Suckington the Cat on Twitter — he cracks me up.

No. It's annoying. Also: please spare me - and the rest of FB - the details of your child's potty training. I don't care how many "poops in the potty" your adorable, brilliant kid managed today.
