Parents Who Blog in Atlanta

Have you ever wondered why I started this blog?

No? Oh, well, I’m going to tell you about it anyway.

When Dylan was born I had more questions than I had poop on my hands. I was a first time mom navigating breastfeeding and newborn care over a thousand miles away from my family and I had no idea what I was doing (still don’t). I did what most first time moms do these days; I turned to the internet for answers. What I found online was a goldmine of blogs written by women whose voices and stories gave me comfort, desperately needed information and even a few laughs. I started to follow a number of blogs and became so inspired that I started one of my own. I saw the deep value in using the technology available to pin-down and preserve all the rapid fire magical moments that were flying my way as a mother. My blog has become my most cherished creation to date, second only to the creation of my son. I love that I can look back at all the precious moments that I’ve shared with my family over the past few years, moments that might have been lost if I hadn’t preserved them here.

A while back I had an itch to explore the parent-blogging community in Atlanta and pitched an article idea to Atlanta Parent Magazine. They told me to go for it so I went out and interviewed some of the local bloggers I admire and put together the feature article for this month’s issue. You can read the online version here!

I hope you will check out the article as well as some of the blogs I admire! The following four bloggers are especially noteworthy because they have awesome blogs, provided great interviews and really helped me out with the article!

I started blogging for the same reasons….I started my blog when Little Man was just 2 months old….it turned into a great way to connect with other mothers and as an outlet so I still felt like I was me not just mom.
