A Brief Blog Profile: Kimchi Mamas

by Thomas Hynes


Kimchi Mamas is a blog written by Korean women. As they say on the site, "the beauty of kimchi—like the beauty of mothers—is that there are so many different kinds. There is something for every taste." And that brings up an important and probably obvious point. Koreans are not all alike. And as such, there is a diversity of both perspective and thought represented on this blog.

On the blog, you can read about Heejun Han's rise to popularity on American Idol. You can hear the motherly pride in this post as the author describes him as "funny, charming, thoughtful, and kind." But it's not all gushing moms on Kimichi Mamas. In this post, you can read about intimate partner violence, or "domestic violence." It becomes clear that while stigmas and expectations vary from culture to culture, many of the same problems and concerns exist.

This blog also offers its share of lighter content. On this post, you can read about Korean paper dolls. And in this post previewing the HBO series "East of Main Street", you can hear their excitement for the program to air. T Like kimchi, it's taste and flavor might be a little foreign at first. After all, these women are Korean, sure. But, I'd wager to say they are mothers first.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
