Anyone can start a blog, and so the internet is full of blogs that vary widely in quality. While some blogs are undoubtedly very helpful, others are pretty bad. Whether you are looking for blogs that inspire and educate or just want to read content created by someone going through the same struggles as you, finding a reliable blog can be challenging.
That is why we have compiled this list of the best mom blogs for you to follow next year. Each one is full of great content and updated frequently, so you are sure to find one you like.
If you are not hooked by the name, take a minute to check out their content. Scary Mommy is one of the biggest and most popular mom blogs in the world, and for good reason. They go way beyond the standard parenting blog posts and have sections for everything from pregnancy to kids to parenting to lifestyle to relationships, and even world news and politics.
They have a huge team of gifted writers covering everything you could want to know, so there’s more content here than on any other parenting blog you’ll find. Jill Smokler started the site in 2008 as a way to document her time at home with her children, and it has grown quickly into a community of millions of mothers and a huge team of writers.
Real Mom Nutrition
Nutrition is on every mother’s mind. You control your child’s access to food, so it is only natural that you would want to be certain that they are eating the right foods. The challenge is finding ways to get them eating the right foods, since those are not always the best tasting foods.
Real Mom Nutrition is full of recipes for easy, nutritious meals that your kids will love. Even better, it is also full of great tasting recipes for things like macaroni and cheese (made with real cheese and some whole wheat pasta). It is not your typical health food blog, but it is a great resource for any mom.
Selfishmother is less about parenting and advice and more of a place for mothers to go to get away from the pressures of parenting and living up to the ideal of the perfect mom. The blog is great, as is the online community of like-minded mothers.
You will find lots of content about the hard parts of parenting that no one likes to talk about. You will also find a strong and supportive community that will welcome you with open arms. As an added bonus, they also have their own shop where you can buy all kinds of unique merchandise.
Started by two friends who live close to each other, Rookie Moms is a great resource, especially for first time mothers and mothers of small children. They have content covering every topic you could want, from pregnancy to toddlers and gift guides for baby registries and the holidays.
Some of their best content provides ideas for activities you can do with your baby and suggestions for very flexible jobs that are suitable for stay-at-home moms.
Cool Mom Picks
As the name suggests, Cool Mom Picks is dedicated to recommending products that are great for moms. That does not mean they only focus on products that have to do with childcare, though.
A lot of the products that they discuss are things like skincare and beauty products, tech gadgets, and other gifts that are just for you, the mom. They also recommend products for kids, but the focus is really on moms. It is not only a great place for moms to find products, it is an excellent way for dads to find gift ideas as well.
A Mom’s Take
A Mom’s Take is operated by several moms living all across the country. It was originally begun as an online resource where moms could support each other and share ideas, and it still serves that purpose.
There are articles on parenting, recipes, activities to do with your kids, holiday suggestions, craft ideas, even travel articles and content for taking care of yourself as a mom. Whatever it is you are looking for, they have content about it here.
