I don't blog *about* WoW so much as I blog while referencing WoW. There are two main things in my life right now: being a new parent and being a gamer (for my sanity's sake). I smashed the two together and started a blog about my adventures in parenting with many many nerd-related references-- the majority of them from WoW-- because it was the only way my baby-addled brain could rationalize things. (If you go there now, you'll find a LOT of Star Wars references because of the Labor Day Star Wars marathon on Spike and my unhealthy obsession with KotOR. Just a warning.)You could say it's a parenting blog for gamers and nerds; you could also say it's a nerdy/gaming blog for parents, though it's probably more the former than the latter at the moment. The name of the blog is a WoW'ism in and of itself: "Mommy Jenkins!!", a sentiment I thought of while terribly sleep-deprived but still trying to will myself to keep going. I think the essence I was trying to capture was that if a WoW player happened upon my blog, they'd still be able to appreciate the references while reading about parenting; if a parent happened upon my blog, they could still gain insight without feeling lost amidst the references. Whatever it is, I must have done something right because I'm about to be featured on the website offbeatmama.com! Woohoo!And now I'm just rambling. Judge for yourself (be kind, please) :) I try to update every Tuesday since it's maintenance day, but lately I've been working on my short story during any free time I can get. **Incoming shameless plug!!**http://mommyjenkins.wordpress.com/
