Someone's been holding out on me! I finally came across this hilarious blog the other day and couldn't believe that I had not before now known of it's existence!
She is way in love with her cute husband. She sells yummy-smelling candles. She hearts Stampin Up! and is super-excited to be preggers.She is Tiffany/Amber/Megan/Nicole, and she's a composite character — some might call her a stereotype. She's the voice behind "Seriously, so blessed!" — a satirical blog that is so true to form, you might not catch that all those exclamation points are meant to be ironic.
The site was created in June by an individual who prefers to remain anonymous but who via e-mail correspondence claims to be a married 25-year-old Mormon mom living in Utah. "Seriously, so blessed!" was intended to be a good-natured response to those perky mommy-blogs so prevalent in family circles.
"I made 'Seriously, so blessed!' one afternoon while our baby was napping last month, just as a joke for a couple of friends after laughing about how funny family blogs can get...the widgets, the enthusiasm, the tone, the whole bit," she said. "I definitely made it in good fun and not out of spite."
Riddled with cheeriness and superlatives, TAMN's blog is a hilarious spoof on the way women portray their family life for their readers. TAMN and her husband, Jordan/Jason/Wes/Taylor, have a fairy-tale romance. They live in a condo/townhouse/mini-mansion while JJWT attends law/dental/business/medical school -- take your pick. The site has been a hit in the few weeks it's been online, catching the eye of MormonTimes.com's Emily Jensen.
The author of "Seriously, so blessed!" says, "I figure the attention this is getting just shows what a hilarious phenomenon the married Mormon blog has become. TAMN combines everything entertaining and obnoxious in the blogs that make us all both laugh and cringe; I guess joking about them is an easier, more entertaining way to deal with it than barfing."
She had me at "now we are going to Law/Business/Dental/Medical/ school -so hard!"
Needless to say, it is the PERFECT place to advertise my funny little Mormon greeting cards! Where else are you going to have 5000 daily readers that love Mormon hilarity all in one spot?
