5 of My Favorite Moms on Instagram

Happy Thursday! I hope you’re all having a fabulous week and like me, are hoping it’ll warm up soon… maybe? Fingers crossed. Anyway, I wanted to do something a little bit different today and rather than talking about our little family, talk about some of the amazing women I’ve met because of blogging and social media. So today, I’m showing off 5 of my favorite mamas to follow on Instagram (and their blogs too). They’re in no particular order and clearly not every mama I love (because I’m following way more than 5 people on my Instagram account), but just a few…

Working Motherhood and Blogging: The Balance

Working Motherhood and Blogging: The Balance

Like many working moms, I often feel there is never ever enough time in a day. It feels like our days are go-go-go from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed. There always seems to be something there isn’t enough time for.  Our days start early around here. As a household with two full-time working parents, we’re up by 6:10 every day, and out of the house by 7:15. We’re lucky enough to be able to commute together, but it’s a long commute – to daycare, then to our respective offices. After a long workday,…

How I Read 200+ Blogs a Day

As a blogger, one of the best ways to build community is to comment on other blogs. We all have our favorites, and I’m sure you are always discovering new ones, just like I am. There are also lots of ways to follow blogs and bloggers. You have a choice of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, adding a favorite to your browser, keeping a paper list – I’m sure there are tons of ways that I can’t even think of. Of every choice I have, my favorite way to follow is through Bloglovin’. After all, Bloglovin’ allows me to peruse over 200 blogs…

How to Have Good Blogger Karma

How to Have Good Blogger Karma

If you know me in real life… you know I’m a big believer in karma. I’ve always believed that what you put out in the world will come back to you, and try to keep that in mind in my personal and professional life. I just don’t see the point in putting out the negative. One place that good karma pays off in spades? Blogging. In my 5+ years of blogging, I’ve learned a lot, but the number one thing is that community is SO important. Being part of a community is the best part of blogging – making new…
