Mommy blogger never took a blogging class

I don’t think they really have blogging classes—maybe that’s the problem?

This sucks for MommyNetwork: The reason this kind of stuff happens is because the Internet facilitates getting the word out quickly and to a lot of people at once—maybe too quickly, and to too many people. (If you didn’t hear about the Mommy Blogger/ Toyota fiasco, read it here!

Some things could be a recipe for disaster, or really awesome.

Sometimes it ends up like the mommy blogger's tearful apology, but sometimes it works out! Did you hear about what happened with the Red Cross? An employee sent a personal Twitter on the Red Cross organization’s account, “Ryan found two more 4 bottle packs of Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch beer… when we drink we do it right.” Red Cross followed up with this Tweet: “We’ve deleted the rogue tweet but rest assured the Red Cross is sober and we’ve confiscated the keys.” People were inspired to donate blood and Dogfish even encouraged people to donate blood. I think it’s pretty funny. Too bad it didn’t work out so swimmingly for MommyNetwork…
