On the eve of Mother’s Day, we have to give a shout-out to the Mom Blogs. As a new(ish), but growing-on-veteran Mom, here are some of my faves:
In the crafty-moms world, I make sure to check in with Little Birds and Angry Chicken. (Why do these seem to go together so well?) And for new-mom knit-inspiration, see Anny Purls. A more recent find is Soule Mama.
Neurotic and post-neurotic moms abound in the blogosphere. With them comes advice, insight and heaps of anecdotal “mommy-hood.” Take what you need, and leave the rest. The Queen of this castle is Dooce. A NYer (now a recent NJersey-er) with a similar slant is FinSlippy. For the masculine take, see: Daddy Types. Meanwhile, the masses rant and rave and rage at UrbanBaby (which can actually be a great resource at times; depends on the messageboard mix).
My favorite, and most-regulary-visited? I should quake with embarassment…. It’s Celebrity Baby Blog (where this picture of Chris & Apple Martin is from). I love seeing the celeb-caliber baby gear, doing a compare/contrast on what my kid’s got, and just having a look at the celebrity baby names and news. Is that so wrong? –Beth J.
