73. Deep Dive: Mormon Mommy Blog Empires, Part II Be There in Five

    • Personal Journals

Part II of the Mormon Mommy Blogger series (used for continuity, now aware name has changed) is designed to go through listener feedback from Part I, correct some inaccuracies, and bridge to the next episode by separating the culture of the church from the doctrine of the church as it relates to the stereotypes surrounding many Utah-based bloggers. Kate also responds to a blogger who was discussed in episode 1 that reached out to her after listening to the episode and also discusses surprising news from another blogger as it relates to her growing brood of children. She also revisits questions after reading more information from scripture and conferences, such as, how much pressure is put on women to have kids? To marry young? What was the feedback like from people within the church who have felt both embraced and unwelcome as a result of decisions in their personal life? Additionally, she goes through some of the dark implications of intolerance as it relates to LGBTQ individuals' rights to be in relationships, marry, etc. and what studies have been done that link youth suicide rates to areas with a high concentration of church members. Part 3 will dive more into scandals and tragedies, as well as some recent events that have been hot topics, as well as some listener submitted favorite anecdotes from internet rabbit holes. Not intended to offend or condemn, rather connect the dots related to questions surrounding the zeitgeists' current fascination with public facing bloggers that happen to be a part of this church, and listener feedback is read in this episode in order to ensure that fairness is delivered in terms of the accuracy of church teachings, even if interpretations are, well, up for interpretation. All stories are grounded in information shared or ascertained from actual events on the blogger/influencer's individual pages, social media, or other properties and all opinions expressed are Kate's own unless otherwise noted as a quote from thechurchofjesuschrist.org, the Benjamin Kroll study, or listener e-mails.
