First off, I’m doing a series of guest posts on Village of Moms starting the first week of June. I’ll be writing some Cloth Diapering 101 posts about different styles of diapers and basic how-to stuff. You all know I’m no expert, but I was in that brand new to cloth diapering position not too long ago. So it will be info and opinions from my point of view, not copied & pasted from any official sources or anything like that.
If you get a chance to read my posts when they’re up, I’d love it. You might want to check out her blog anyway, she has several giveaways coming up next month that I know you all will be interested in, including GroBaby, Babylegs and more. I’m reading her recipe posts right now and I’m getting hungry!!
Now, on to the rambling: A comment on my bread post got me thinking and I just wanted to
bore you share with you.
I’m very anti-drama and I stay out of it as much as I can. I feel pretty strongly about the decisions I make for my own family, but I’m not terribly concerned about what others do. Some people may think that makes me lame because I don’t protest or write letters or try to sway people, but that’s just how I am. I don’t care if you are so crunchy you churn your own butter, or if you drive a Hummer. *ducks from tomatoes thrown at me*
Anyhoo, I know that I would never win any awards for world’s greenest family and I’m OK with that. I’m making small changes as they work for me.
I know that different people are at different stages in “going green” and people are looking for different things. Some people use only baking soda or vinegar for everything from washing their hair to washing their countertops. Other people have certain chemicals they want to stay away from and some just want something biodegradable and not tested on animals. So, you may see me reviewing a product that you don’t think is green enough for you, that’s OK! Someone else may be interested, I’m just putting the info out there, do with it what you will. I review products based on my opinions and how they work for my family, and you may not feel the same way that I do.
As far as the H F C S (hoping someone’s Google alerts don’t ping and come a-knockin’ on my door again!) some people don’t care, some people aren’t sure, some people hate it and yeah, some people are allergic to corn!
My blog and reviews aren’t a platform for any agenda I have. Yes, I love cloth diapers and I want people to get the info and love fluff too. That said, if you end up sticking with sposies, I still love ya and I still want you around.
I am trying to grow a thicker skin, but that’s easier said than done. I’m glad to share my opinions when asked by someone who honestly wants the info. However, I’m not interested in trying to defend myself to someone with their own agenda, nor do I wear my decisions as a badge!
