    Tara Livesay is an incredible blogger. She is thoughtful, hilarious, and leads an interesting life. She works for an NGO in Haiti and has 7 kids.

  • Mater Mea 2 of 10

    I adore Mater Mea, an absolutely stunning site that combines great storytelling with fine art photography to celebrate the beauty of African American mothers. Right now, they cover moms exclusively in NYC, but I so want them to go nationwide. I think they're doing important work by showing the everyday lives of moms of color — narratives that extend far beyond the stereotypes we're used to seeing in mainstream media.

  • Highly Irritable 3 of 10

    I wouldn't say she's "undiscovered," but she deserves more spotlight for sure: Jeni Marinucci of Highly Irritable. She's very funny, very talented, and has better hair than I do. (I hate her.)

    I adore Bill Dameron's blog The Authentic Life. He was a married father who finally found the courage at the age of 43 to say, "I'm gay." His blog is an inspirational and honest look at what his life looks like now.

    I love No Model Lady. She's so classy and beautiful, and is a mother of two boys. She was even a teenage mother once, but she handled it like a BOSS. I just love her.

  • I Miss You When I Blink 6 of 10

    Every year, I host Blogmas, where I invite the bloggers that I never get a chance to know to submit their favorite posts from the year. Inevitably, when I read them, I find little gems I never knew were out there. My absolute favorite writer from the past year is ML from I Miss You When I Blink. Her writing is beautiful, brilliant, and FUNNY. What more can you ask for in a blogger?

    My friend Molly from A Day in Mollywood is a phenomenal writer who has written openly about her struggles with depression. She's an inspiration.

  • Art from the Lost Planet 8 of 10

    I love Mindy North at Art from the Lost Planet. The Norths are a family of artists truly living a life of their own charming, conscious, kooky, and beautiful design. I love reading about their adventures. It's like my fantasy life if I was handy enough to hang curtains and didn't kill every garden I ever tried to plant.

  • Sellabit Mum 9 of 10

    I really like Minnesota blogger Sellabit Mum, who, to the best of my knowledge, is not celibate or British. But I give her serious props for surviving Minnesota winters. She writes beautiful, thoughtful posts about her three girls, and she has a passion for making sure children are vaccinated throughout the world.

  • It’s Not Wine, It’s Mommy Juice 10 of 10

    I'm addicted to Kristine Krause Castagnaro's blog It's Not Wine, It's Mommy Juice. The stories Kristine tells about her two sassy daughters (one adopted) are fresh, funny, and genuine. And I never mind hearing about their home state of Hawaii.
