Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Metalia of Metalia
- #83 Babble Best
No, the blog Metalia isn’t about a metal-thrash band. It’s about the life of a seemingly ordinary mother of two who lives just outside of New York City. And it’s her middle name, thank you very much. A unique moniker to be certain, especially given that it’s attached to such a normal progression of posts. And therein lies the charm of Metalia. There’s no shock value or cheesy, over-the-top design. There are no memes or forced themes. Instead, just earnest, clever entries from a very likable and funny young lady who’s just as apt to discuss upcoming hair-color choices as she is the time she and her son and daughter picked and ate apples from an apple tree.
