My Favorite Toddler Momma Blogs

By Beth Anne Ballance |

This one is mine. Duh.

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:

    Bummed I’m not in here. :) But thanks for pointing me in the direction of these blogs! I’m particularly looking forward to checking out The818, because I’m there, too!

      @Tragic Sandwich, this list doesn’t even scratch the surface of all I read :) My wrist just gave out with the slideshow. I think I’ll have to do another one soon, but definitely check out The818 (Morgan)! She’s one of my bestest blogging friends.

  6. Kristin @ What She Said says:

    OK. I *suppose* I can forgive you for not including me. Nope, scratch that – expect an angry, ranty e-mail from me later begging you, “Why – WHY, DAMN IT – didn’t you pick meeee????” Because that doesn’t at all reek of desperation and insecurity. ;)

    Great list, BA. And yes, Jill is hilarious. Glad to see Sally’s still going strong. I think the last time I checked out her blog, I saw that she’d moved to my hometown.

    Also, we need to catch up. I’ve been a bad bloggy friend – I realized I don’t even know if you’ve started your new job yet!
