Blogger/Vlogger/Freelance writer Jew in the City, aka Allison Josephs, posed an interesting inquestion on her Facebook fan page: “What should I call myself? I have this problem where people will ask if I work and I say yes, and then they ask what I do and I say, I don’t know what to call it. What should I call it??”
People volunteered many ideas for Allison, including Professional blogger, Torah journalist and Professional Vlogger.
Eventually someone asked, “Do you get paid for this?” Allison said no. “So can you really call it a job?” And that’s when I used the mom card. Being a stay-at-mom is a full-time job you don’t really get paid for. In fact, a recent Time magazine article said that if we started paying our moms what they deserved, they’d be making upwards of $100K a year.
Well, when are we going to take our Moms…and our internet educators and bloggers seriously?
