Frankly, it is quite the opposite.
There's a community of women who are finding each other online, via blogging, social media, online groups, and even various conventions, who are launching brands, and starting their marketing and freelance writing careers. They are fulfilling a hunger that has been inside of them for decades.
I find it incredibly humorous as I meet people who pity me as if I have been missing something because I chose to "go home" and raise my kids for the last 8 years. I have met the most incredible and amazing people in social media that have supported me as I have been seeking out my creative outlets, one being a freelance writing career. I have made amazing connections in media and have learned so much from them, I have grown as a person and for that I am so grateful. (and no they aren't just my little pretend friends on the little computer in my make believe world... I have made friends in real life with them... you nerds.... ha ha )
I would have never known or sought these opportunities if I stayed in my 9 to 5 job. (well it was more like 10 hour days - no lunch and worked weekends... but whose keeping track?...)
So I say, let's take a moment in silence and honor this sad woman whose life evolved in making coffee better than the girls in the office.... and CHEERS to us as we seek to achieve our dreams and lay the path to future homemakers who don't need to feel less of a woman in the feminist world because they made their choice to stay at home. I thought you people were all about a woman's choice..... right? (snickers)
