  • Bonus Draws: 1,500/10 = 150 EC (each)



It is not easy for me to pick a few mommy bloggers to highlight. I love the women who say, "I am staying home with my kids and I will do anything, within reason, to pay my bills." I also love women who say, "I must work, but my child will not miss anything."

Elizabeth from Table for Five and Mom Reviews is a mom who proudly states:
I have three children-Ryan age 11, Nathan age 9, and Kaitlyn age 2. I have been a stay-at-home-Mom for 9 years. It’s the hardest job I’ve ever had!
She is totally transparent in her blogging and will go head to head with anyone who leaves a comment that makes her angry.
I started this blog because I wanted to share my experiences with other Moms. And I still do! Do I have a responsibility to protect Table for Five and what it stands for? Absolutely. Should I let every other blogger on the planet dictate what I can and can’t publish here? No freaking way. If I am going to declare myself to be a Mommyblogger, do I have a responsibility to that group to contribute to it in a positive way? Yes, I believe I do, but not at the expense of changing who I am.
Elizabeth will be at BlogHer this year if you wish to meet her.

Another mom I love is Sue from Life in the Urban Zoo. She proudly introduces her blog:
This blog will relate far too much information on life in the city in general, raising kids, frightful teenagers, and even more frightful adult children, ageing parents, our numerous pets, dogs, cats, birds, and other assorted critters. Welcome, and be forewarned we do not suffer fools gladly!
Sue is a professional graphic designer and public speaker who lives in Ontario, Canada. She is a founder and webmaster of ParaResearchers and maintains a blog on the paranormal. All of Sue's posts about her children make you want to smile. She is a mommy blogger; however, she is much more. She is a citizen of this world (and the next)!

Michele from scribbit: A Blog About Motherhood in Alaska is another favorite of mine. She set up a custom search engine, powered by Google, that searches 1500 mommy blogs. Read her posting on Problogger: Five Reasons Why Mom Blogs Are the Blogs to Watch

Then, there is Brandy from The Building Brows who lives in an 832 square foot trailer with her six children and a husband while they are building a new home--without loans. Somehow she has time to write (2007 NANOWRIMO winner), visit blogs and comment.

Last but not least, Sandy from Writing in Faith, is an English instructor, professional writer and editor, a wonderful photographer, and a prolific blogger (10 blogs). Her love for her daughter shines in her posts and the stories of her childhood make me wish I had grown up with her.

I have to stop now . . . But, there are so many more . . . I have to stop now . . .

I'll have to check this out! I know of many of the blogs you list here, and I admire these writers--as I admire what you do, you talented lady. You've taught me much about how all this bloggy Internet stuff works.

Thanks for including me here and for saying such kind and supportive things.

God bless.
