Our Top 20 Mom Blogs
Mommy Gone Healthy
Amber Battishill, a 30-year old mother and wife, have created http://mommygonehealthy.com/. Something moved her up the point that she decided to create this wonderful and useful blog. Maybe it was her 2 children, Brielle and Aiden; we don`t know.
The mother of the fact is that she loves gardening, recipes, yoga and wine, and she probably wanted a place where she can talk about all these things. Not just that, but she actually loves to be completely honest on her website, even when she`s draining and tedious.
Young Love Mommy
Do you want a place where you can read about wellness, motherhood, beauty or travel? YoungLoveMommy.com is just that!
For example, in the last article of this blog, “Solay Mattress – Sleep, Wake & Repeat,” although in collaboration with Solay Sleep, the blog`s owner offers her personal opinion about a product she just tried. She also shares a Solay Mattress Coupon code that her readers can use in case they decide on using this product.
Such posts are meant to help users, and most women or moms out there are looking for exactly that – an honest opinion from another regular person just like them, and not a professional trying to sell his company`s product.
Mom Blog Society
MomBlogSociety.com was founded by LaDonna Dennis Maxwell back in 2011. This mom blogger began this site because she really believed that every mother deserved to be in society`s spotlight. The owner of this blog is happily married and lives in Ohio, US. She was a journalist before becoming a blogger, which came in handy.
Her blog is a knowledge-base site for all the mothers out there, featuring worldwide bloggers. The blog`s vision is to use the potential and power of the online environment in order to connect groups of people all over the wold.
Mamavation has been found by Leah Segedie, a social media consultant and dedicated food activist who decided that is a great idea to start teaching “digital moms” healthy lifestyle practices to fight illnesses in the comfort of their home.
Leah often organizes trending parties on twitter almost every month in order to educate her public regarding food supply as well as other related issues with an impact on public health.
Mamavation.com is seen as a support group for weight loss and virtual docudrama for all mothers in social media. It is both a Virtual Sorority and campaign in one.
According to Rockin Mama, motherhood is full of surprises and laughter, but sometimes also tears. It is probably the most amazing thing there is.
This website began as a chronicle of the first year of the life of Caryn Bailey`s son, who is also its owner. For her, the fact of being a mother is the hardest as well as the most wonderful thing. A NICU nurse during the day and blogger at night, she`s proud to be a citizen of California and she loves to travel (especially backpacking).
She found out she was pregnant in Scotland, which was pretty great actually as she now believes that her son will have the notion of travel into his blood.
If you want to read about fitness, recipes, health and anything green, visit her blog and you won`t be disappointed.
