When first I turned the key
on the Meming of Life, I poked around the Internets a bit to see who else might be blogging about secular parenting. I found four: Noell Hyman's Agnostic Mom, The Atheist Mama, Atheist in a Minivan,
and Humanist Mama.
I started writing The Meming of Life
in March '07, two weeks before Parenting Beyond Belief
was released, expecting to blog for about six months, just to see the book launch through. Still at it, 255 posts later.
In the past two years, a number of blogs have appeared with a significant nonreligious parenting focus, each helping to open that closet door a wee bit wider. Here's an attempted timeline:
The Atheist Mama
Atheist in a Minivan
The Meming of Life
The SkepDad Blog
Raising Three Thinkers
A Secular Parenting Blog
Science-Based Parenting by Skeptic Dad
PhD in Parenting
Our greatest deficit -- the lack of a connected, mutually supportive community -- is slowly being erased. Equally important, this chorus of voices helps us to build consensus about the best practices for nonreligious parenting. So visit 'em, read 'em, comment and link up -- and let me know who I missed.
