Jeremy Gutsche was recently quoted in the Los Angeles Times in a piece about lifestyle trends and the resurgence of the traditional housewife thanks to the blogosphere.
Here’s what Jeremy had to say in the LA Times piece:
“The concept of the career woman has without question become the accepted societal norm, but the concept of the ‘traditional stay-at-home mom’ has still remained a part of our culture,” says Jeremy Gutsche, founder of the online magazine TrendHunter.com.
“What has changed is that the blogosphere and social media have connected many different groups, including … those that believe in a 1950s way of life,” Gutsche says. Also, “the recent recession caused people to reassess what is really important in their lives, and we’ve seen a rise in people prioritizing their personal fulfillment above their careers. Even if one didn’t lose their job, when we see the chaos that surrounds us, it forces us to think about what is really important in our lives. This manifests itself in the form of hobbies, experiential travel and spending more time with one’s family … all things that are akin to the more traditional 1950s lifestyle.”
