Oh, sure. There are plenty of “Top Mom Blog” lists that go around, including Babble’s own Top 100 Mom Blog List. I’ve personally never been on one of those lists and that’s quite alright – I know the space I create has a really great community surrounding it and everytime I sit down with a keyboard, I feel “home.” That’s good enough for me.
But I always find it fascinating to see the blogs that other people read – they can be so telling of personalities and secret wishes for life. What inspires them? What makes them laugh? What is their style?
I tend to be all over the place – I started reading blogs by the dozen until my Google Reader was packed with almost 300 blogs. No, seriously. But then something magical happened at the Blissdom blogging conference when a very wise blogger told me to drop the guilt and slim it down. Keep only the blogs that inspire me, make me laugh, make me think, make my heart grow. Keep the blogs where I feel connected to the other woman behind the screen, even if she doesn’t know that I exist. It made wonderful sense so I did just that until I poured over every single blog in my reader with a full heart, eager for their words.
My list isn’t perfect. I know I’m missing somebody! Plus, there are AMAZING bloggers out there that I have yet to meet, yet to read. Heck, you might even be one of them! But here are nineteen toddler mom blogs (in no particular order) that I can’t live without:
