Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Catherine Connors of Her Bad Mother
We’re not even going to pretend to be unbiased about Her Bad Mother, a.k.a. Catherine Connors, a.k.a. Babble’s Director of Community and Social Good and Babble Voices blogger. But what we can say is that long before she became part of Babble, we were enormous fans (see: Top 50 Mom Blogs 2010 and Top 50 Mom Blogs 2009).
There’s a lot to love here, starting with the honest, hilarious tone, posts that manage to be self-reflective without being myopic, and photographs that detail the smallest victories with brilliant, effusive color. Yes, the “bad mother” trajectory is one that Megan Jordan rightly points out has become an easy go-to by now, but it was Catherine who first tread this ground before it was easy, and before anyone knew just how relevant the journey would become.
