My new fave bloggers are Amy and Marc from Equally Shared Parenting, described as"a cyber-home for fathers and mothers who have made (or wish to make) a conscious decision to share equally in the raising of their children, household chores, breadwinning, and time for recreation."

I've written about them several times at Everyday Mom: click here and here, the second being Amy's response to my nosy questions.

Much appreciated is their willingness to open up about the details of their lives, and to remind us of good priorities in their tagline, Half the Work....All the Fun. Yes, it's supposed to be about fun. Fun sounds frivolous, I know, but all the demands for political and social change is so we, all of us, in the end, can have better lives and more fun.


Yesterday, Amy and Marc were guest bloggers at the Washington Post's On Balance blog.  Great entry, and the responses were great; the usual On Balance reader vitriol was spewn at other readers, not at the guest bloggers. One reader even called for the Post to give them their own blog, called "On Equality."

Wouldn't that be nice.
