Would Kim Kardashian Make a Good Mommy Blogger?!
Kim Kardashian is pregnant by Kanye West! Is that news? Well it was a few days ago. However, since I returned to work after the holiday season on Wednesday this is the first chance I have had to write about it.
Quite frankly, this news has disrupted my planned writing topics. I have so many things to share about my own life. The holidays were awesome for my family. We were blessed to be together and even more blessed that we actually liked it (at least most of the time...) Still, like all families we had our conflicts. Also, having an extended time off of work in your home gives you time to reflect on some things. I am convinced now more than ever that there are no miracle gremlins who will do your housework. Based on what I have seen on the Internet, I hoped that the "Elf on the Shelf" might do it. Alas, he did not.
In any event, had Kanye West not expressed to a crowd that he was Kim's baby daddy, I might actually be sharing about our holidays. However, instead, I will be commenting about their blessed event. For the record though, even the Today Show followed this story. So, refrain from sending me hate mail again about my obsession with Reality TV. I understand that I may have a bit of a problem. (BTW--
Did you hear that Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy are getting divorced?! Forget about that. I digressed...)
Other media outlets may be concerned about the baby's gender, what the birth might yield in terms of profits to the ever growing, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" Empire and whether the baby will have its own clothing line... (There's also that messy detail about her being pregnant by one man while being married to another. There used to be a name for that type of woman. Now, they simply call her "star".)
On the other hand, perhaps because I am slight narcissistic, I am concerned about what Kim's pregnancy means for me. Say what you want about Kim Kardashian, that chick is a hustler. She knows how to make money. And she makes things happen. That makes me nervous. If Kim enters the "mommy blogger" space she could totally own it.
There is lots of money to be made as a "mommy blogger". That's what I hear anyway. BlogHer paid out $17 Million Dollars to bloggers. And while I only may about $17.00, I believe them and I am scared. One of my Twitter friends said that she hoped that Kim didn't become a mommy blogger because, "she's out of touch." I have more selfish reasons for hoping that Kim doesn't become a "mommy blogger"...
Kim may be out of touch. She might live in a world that most of us will never see. However, she is either really smart or she is at least smart enough to surround herself with smarter people who know how to make her money (like her mother, Kris Jenner). Based on my Internet research, her net worth as of last June was $40 Million Dollars. (No, that was not a typo.) Because of that, she might just suck up all of the money from the other mommies! Not to whine, but that's not really fair...
If you doubt me. Just pause for a second and think about a little Reality TV show called, "The Simple Life". Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie thought that they were reality stars too...
So, Kim Kardashian, if you decide to become a "mommy blogger" and want someone to show you the ropes, "Call me maybe?!"
