Maybe you’re on your maiden journey into diaper changing and sleep loss, or perhaps you’re a second- or third-time pro when it comes to potty training your walking, talking “I can do it!” toddler. Regardless, we all need a little support. Whether you need last-minute drop-in child care to finish those errands tantrum free, or some much-needed comic relief and insight from your favorite mama blogger, here are some of your top picks.
Winner: Moms Alive
Some days after putting your little one down for a nap, it’s hard not to thank your lucky stars for mom bloggers who think like you do, such as the wonderful ladies on Moms Alive. By far the top pick for the best mom blog, Moms Alive offers up plenty of tips and tricks for navigating the ever-changing waters of motherhood with a “Just for you” section, great family travel tips, personal birthing stories and more. And to put it lightly, these experienced mamas seem to be doing a darned good job; voters said that they read Moms Alive daily for their “serious topics with a nice, light touch,” “inspirational and well-researched stories” and because they make even the largest of parenting emergencies seem absolutely normal.
With expert tips, wit and charm, Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson’s Seattle Mama Doc is a top finalist for favorite mom bloggers, with one voter noting that she appreciates the “honest conversation about the safety and health of children” without the “pushy advice.”
Another favorite, Hip Travel Mama has “fantastic trip ideas for families.”
Voters also nominated The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, who describes herself as “a moderately agoraphobic ranch wife and mother of four.” One voter calls her “down to earth, humorous and just plain amazing!”
Since its inception in 2009, Rants from Mommyland has been a sensation for its laugh-out-loud humor and down-to-earth appeal. When these two moms aren’t blogging about all things related to parenthood and families, they’re busy changing dirty diapers, folding laundry and making sure the dishes are done.
Local favorite Postcards from Seattle gets two big thumbs up from voters for being a “great resource to find out about fun activities around Seattle” and its ideas for exploring, cooking, living, learning and creating.
