Other moms have truly inspired each and every one of us here at BabyPage! That’s why we wanted to share our favorite mommy bloggers with you!
From Yasine Armstrong, co-founder of BabyPage:
One of my favorite writers is Glennon Doyle Melton with Momastery and Together Rising. She started her career as an author by blogging about her experiences raising her three kids. She needed an outlet to help her feel less alone and isolated as a stay-at-home mom. Her ability to capture the excruciating, yet brutiful (her word), journey of parenthood has made me cry on so many occasions. Her nonprofit, Together Rising, has raised millions of dollars to help children and families all over the world. She is a true inspiration. Her motto, “We can do hard things” is my mantra.
The other blogger that I really like is Ilana Wiles with Mommyshorts. I love her candid approach to parenting. She also runs the Instagram accounts @averageparentproblems and @insta2yearold. She really captures the joy and challenges of parenthood with her two daughters and she highlights other parents in a way that we can all relate. Ilana also travels a lot with her children which resonates with me because we try to do the same with our kids. I really appreciate that she’s honest about the fun and the not-so-fun parts of traveling with toddlers.
From Katie Rice, co-founder of BabyPage:
One of my favorites is Momma’s Gone City
. I found Jessica Shyba’s blog when I started researching strollers years ago, and her blog has since skyrocketed in popularity with the series of photos of Theo and Beau, Jessica’s son and puppy, and their adorable napping routine. I was drawn to Jessica’s descriptive and emotional way of conveying the joys and challenges of life with kids, and her very positive outlook and uncanny ability to pull of amazing adventures with a handful of kids. I love reading about her family adventures with 4 (and her 5th on the way soon!) kids in tow, and I am drawn to the imagery that goes along with all her posts, She has an incredible sense of style — both her look and how she dresses her kiddos — and I love how her photography illustrates the magic of childhood.
Another blog I love is Somewhere Slower
by Courteney Adamo. Courteney traveled around the world with her husband and four kids and she chronicled their adventures exploring various cultures, counties and regions. I am a travel junkie, and I was drawn to this dream of travel around the globe and her whimsical style of writing. Her photography and imagery is captivating, and her ability to pack up four kids (and soon to be 5!) and travel anywhere in the world is inspiring and motivating to me.
From Meagan Fowler, social media momma
I love following Brooke Hampton’s family on her Barefoot Five
and Holy Flow Parenting
Facebook pages. (She posts most often on social media than on her blog
.) I started following her a couple of years ago because her youngest boy had a wild mane of dreadlocks at a very young age and I was fascinated by this adorable bohemian cutie pie. Then I started reading her little snippets on Facebook about her approach to parenting, and was really drawn to her style. She often likens her family to a “pack of wolves” and “wolf cubs” and shows the “natural animal” in ourselves and in our children. She is super “hippie” and they grow their own food and make their own medicine and try to take a “natural” approach to everything. While I’m not a complete hippie myself, I am interested in trying natural remedies first before antibiotics and I would love to offer my own children the wild freedom I enjoyed as a kid, as opposed to rigid schedules and helicopter-parenting. I find Brooke’s approaches very refreshing in the midst of our technological era.
Another mom I love to follow is Amber Fillerup Clark with BarefootBlonde
. Honestly? She’s just stunningly beautiful. I’m in awe of her perfect fishtail braids and bikini bod, even with two children. I discovered her blog because we aim to travel a lot with our children and she was one of the first mommy-travel-bloggers I found online with some great tips on how to pack and navigate airports with little ones. She lives a glamorous life of travel, and also blogs about lifestyle, hair and fashion–but it’s her mommy-related posts that I particular love. BarefootBlonde is a dream-like inspiration on how I’d like to live life as a traveling mother.
