In honor of Mother's Day, I want to recognize my favorite "mommy bloggers," or mothers who blog about life and occasionally parenting.
Pigtail Pals and Ballcap Buddies: Melissa Atkins Wardy is the author of Redefining Girly: How Parents Can Fight the Stereotyping and Sexualizing of Girlhood, from Birth to Tween. While she first started writing about gender issues that primarily affect girls, she now writes about why and how she doesn't limit her daughter or her son. A recent post is about boys who play with dolls. Melissa's facebook page features regular, engaging discussion with many parents and future parents (like me!).
Jessica Lynn Writes: I've been reading Jess's blog since a few months before she officially became a mom to the most expressive baby on the Internet, Julia. Jess could stop blogging about food, or travel, or the military, and I would keep reading because Julia is so darned cute. I LOVE her recent post on Julia's birth story, in which she encourages all moms for being awesome, no matter how they became a mom.
Blonde, Undercover Blonde: I have no idea how Heather works full-time, takes care of a toddler, and still manages to read a book every week for her link-up, Book Club Friday. That is some mad superpower, y'all. Her daughter is totally cute and healthy now, but she started out as a preemie.
Scattered Seashells: I follow Chantal on twitter, but I confess I don't read her blog daily. Usually I end up binge-reading old posts of hers like once every 4-6 weeks.
Bible, Beer, and Babies: I'm pretty sure it's been less than a week since I discovered this blog. Basically her post on selfies was so awesome that I decided to start reading her blog.
To all you awesome moms who somehow
manage to keep your kids alive, and then still
have time to blog about it, you rock!
Happy Mommy Blogger's Day!
