Trying to cope with the struggles and joys of motherhood, at the same time, being a career woman? Well, thanks to some working mom bloggers, they truly inspire fellow moms in so many wonderful ways.
I do not know about you, but since I found out I was pregnant with our first-born, I found a new hobby – reading working mom bloggers’ blogs. I found it informative and inspiring at the same time.
In fact, I am grateful I got to read blogs if various working mom bloggers because they helped me prepare for the life ahead of me. Their words helped keep me sane and helped me manage my expectations – not only with the baby I was then giving birth to but also managing expectations with myself.
Just to give you an idea, before I even landed into the world of working from home career, I was then (allow me to use the word) successful with my career. I was happily part of a well-known company. In fact, it was an international company. I thought I was at the peak of my career – until motherhood changed me, my life entirely.
To be honest, I never expected to be working from home to be able to take care of our baby. Before giving birth, I was so into getting a babysitter. I thought I knew what I wanted, but when I finally saw my son, it was as if my life has turned 360 degrees. I suddenly was thinking of leaving my job for good, and instead, start a work-from-home career.
It has been a couple of months now, and I must say, I am enjoying the life that I found at home with our dear baby boy.
I am grateful for the gift of technology because it made my decision-making easier. If not for the opportunities online, I would have gotten crazy in making a decision whether or not I should quit and be a mom.
Moreover, if only I could personally thank individually all the working mom bloggers whose blogs really helped me in this journey, I would. But of course, that’s impossible. We do not know each other – first and foremost.
So, instead, I am listing down and sharing with you some of what I believe are the best working mom bloggers we have today. These are the women, who are not celebrities but have their very own rights to be famous and be an expert particularly in the world of motherhood.
INSPIRING WORKING MOM BLOGGERS
As I mentioned earlier, I am going to share with you my personal choices of working mom bloggers that I found really inspiring and full of mom-sense.
The Crunchy Mommy by Aaronica Cole
This is probably one of the first few working mom bloggers I got to know. I was just Googling then about how to be a mom and about working mom, and then I stumbled into her blog. I got stuck reading her blogs specifically because of how she shares her knowledge and experiences.
Aasronica identified herself as a work-at-home mom. For a fact, she does sell fashion, kinds of body butter, and a lot more. What I like even more about this momma is the fact that she tackles almost anything in her blog. She posts blogs about cleaning hacks to eco-friendly ideas, from love and relationships to motherhood, as well as homeschooling and even travels.
I found her blog very informative and realistic. I mean, she talks about topics that are true #MomLife.
SkinnyTaste by Gina Homolka
This mom is from New York. She is a mom to two wonderful children. But apart from being a mom and certified blogger, she is also a photographer and an author. She’s wearing too many hats, right? But what I like about her is, she is able to manage to always be at her best in each hat she wears. How do I say that? Well, just by reading her posts.
SkinnyTaste, as the name suggests, specifically tackles food. Gina shares a variety of recipes including keto, g-free, paleo, and more. Obviously, she is an advocate of healthy eating. So, if you want to get fit and healthy, SkinnyTaste is a must-read blog.
NYC Running Mama by Michele Gonzalez
Here’s another mom’s inspiration. Michelle Gonzalez is a mom of three who loves running. Professionally, she works as a financial analyst for JP Morgan Chase & Co. down in Manhattan.
I find her inspiring because even she too wears so many hats, she is able to make time for herself – which she spends in running. She for me is one of those moms who are both fitness and health goals. Guess what? She is even more inspiring because apart from being a marathoner, she too is an honest military vet. In fact, she was deployed to Iraq thrice. I also like the fact that she has lots of sense of humor.
Love Brown Sugar by Christina Brown
This mommy blogger writes about beauty and style, as well as travel and digital entrepreneurship. If you are a mommy who wants to learn how to venture into mom-preneurship, Christina’s blog is a very informative read. In fact, this mom has a series called LBS Mompreneur Diaries wherein she profiles other entrepreneur moms.
Apart from blogging, this digital strategist by profession also holds an annual event called BrownGirlsLove Power Day, as well as keeps a digital community called @BrownGirlsLove. If you are interested in the even and in joining her community, just go to her blog and know more about it.
The Corporate Sister by Professor Solange Lopes
This is one of those mommy blogs where I found posts about working-mom hacks and challenges. In fact, I found a lot of ideas and learned a lot about how to deal with motherhood, at the same time, keeping your career. Well, she offers career advice, too, which I really found helpful.
Professor Solange is a Certified Public Accountant by trade. Apart from writing about working-mom life, career advice, and about the life of a “woman of color” In the business industry, she also tackles topics like relationships, and organizing.
Like other mommy bloggers, she also dedicated a whole paid coaching to her blog site, as well as creating a Facebook community. She also offers online coaching courses, as well as a podcast, and an app that makes connecting with working women possible.
I highly recommend this to work mommies, and most especially to mommies who are still struggling dealing with both motherhood and career at the same time.
Dirt and Noise by Ilina Ewen
If you want to read about more serious matters concerning women in general, this is the blog to go. Ilina tackles issues on women like the value of creativity and the need for more people calling out racism.
Ilina is a freelance writer by profession, and at the same time, she also does marketing consulting job. She is 50 years old, and a mom of two wonderful children.
I particularly like her blog because of her fierceness and being able to speak out her mind freely. She is truly a woman of sense.
Fab Working Mom Life by Julie
Julie is a wife of a military. She is a mom to a toddler and is working full-time as an environmental compliance consultant.
What I like about her blog is that she writes about tips on making money from blogging. It was through reading her blog that I was fully convinced that there is money in blogging. I love writing and have been blogging for a long time before I learned about monetizing my blog. Personally, I recommend her blog to those women like me who are into blogging but are not fully aware of how to make money from it.
I also admire this woman as she shares her life as a working military wife. You know, sometimes you’d think being a wife and a mom is hard, but when you read about stories like that of Julie, you’d probably feel ashamed.
In addition, I find her blog truly inspiring when I read about her posts on finding balance as a working mom, and on managing expectations. With her kind of life, she indeed has the right to talk about all these things.
SweetPhi by Philia Kelnhofer
She is the woman behind True Botanica, a natural beauty products company. Apart from that, she is also an author, particularly writing cookbooks. She is a new mom, but very inspiring indeed.
What you will find on her blog site are posts about working-family-friendly recipes, food photography, and she also shared insights in starting a blog for those who wants to venture into blogging. Oh! And she also posts about her and her family’s travel escapades too.
The Mom at Law by Candace Alnaji
She is an inspiration! Imagine, she is a practicing attorney, a blogger, a freelance writer, working parents advocated, and to top it all, a mom to three beautiful children. While reading her blog, you will probably think about how she was able to do it all!? I did, and to be honest, I could not even fathom how she is able to do it all.
What I like about her blog, and her as a person is her authenticity and warmth. While reading her blog, it feels like she’s a distant friend. She knows exactly the words you need to hear or read for that matter.
Her blogs talk about practical and relevant tips for working moms like me, and maybe you too! I particularly like one blog post of her wherein she addressed it to new moms like me. She talked about life beyond being a mom. Her insights also help working moms manage to balance things out, ensuring that nothing gets left behind.
The Mrs. The Mommy. The M.D. by Jasmine Johnson
She is a mom of two. She is a medicine fellow. She is a blogger. Jasmine is another one of those working mom bloggers that I admire for her dedication and her ability to manage her career and mom-life.
Obviously, she blogs about her profession. She writes about her work as a doctor, and she also wrote about how to get into med school. But more than that, what made me read her posts is the fact that she also writes about her life as a working mom and her advocacy on women’s health.
She also talks about her daily challenges as a mom, and as a female doctor. Moreover, she uses her blog to encourage fellow women to keep pursuing their dreams and not let motherhood hinder you, rather push you to become the person that you want to be.
Forever Freckled by Katie, Allison, and Carrie
Yup, it’s a blog run by three beautiful ladies – sisters, in fact. It’s interesting how the three offer helpful tips and insights about their respective expertise. Katie is a pediatric emergency room doctor and a mom of two. Allison, on the other hand, is a veterinarian and mom to three beautiful children. While Carrie, the last among the trio is a work-from-home stylist, and a mom to one.
I like how the sisters are able to pull their blog off. They have their respective thoughts about life in general, yet they are bonded by one (apart from their blood relations, of course) – motherhood. By the way, they position their blog as a parenting website.
Grok Nation by Mayim Biyalik
Yes, she is Mayim Biyalik, the award-winning actress. It’s quite amazing that despite her busy life, she is able to manage a blog, and share her thoughts about different topics like lifestyle, news, culture, and even spiritual topics!
I like how she is able to show off the other side of her through blogging. She is very inspiring, even more, relatable especially when she uploaded a video about how much she misses home and the company of her kids. Well, in general, every working mom will truly relate to her personal challenges as a mom and a woman.
Love That Max by Ellen Seidman
She is the famous editor of various well-known publications like Glamour, In Style, Good Housekeeping, and HGTV. However, you will actually find it amazing that she is like a different person when you read-through her blog.
She uses her blog to talk about the “abilities in kids with disabilities”. Apparently, she has a son named, Max, who has cerebral palsy. I must admit, some of her entries made me tear-up. I mean, I could not imagine myself in that kind of situation, and at the same time, it made me look-up to moms even more – you know, how selfless we all can be for the love of our children.
Apart from talking about the abilities of special kids, the mom of three also talks about heartwarming news, demystifies myths, and she also offers tips and ways on how to advocate for children with special needs.
One of her posts, the one entitled, “Smile at a Special Needs Mom” has grown popularity. The post was very touching as she tackled how people can support families and how a simple question like “Are you okay?” can make a huge difference during tense moments in public areas.
Yes, by now, you probably know the reason why her blog is entitled as such – because it is dedicated to her son, Max, and all the other kids like him.
So, there you have it. These are just thirteen of the so many inspiring and worth-reading blogs from various working mom bloggers.
Now, for those of you who are working moms too, and are hoping to also make a difference or share your experiences, thoughts, and wisdom to fellow moms, you can do blogging, too! It’s not as hard as you think. As long as you have the drive, it’s easy to set-up one.
Being a working mom is no easy feat – that’s for sure. But as they say, once you are a mother, it’s as if someone loads you up with the strength to make you able to do everything.
It is exhausting, yes, but it is worth it. And I guess, we all have to take it from these working mom bloggers who were able to manage to be a career woman, a wife, a mom, and a blogger.
At first, it may get a little overwhelming, but as you go along and as you open yourself to the magic of motherhood plus allowing yourself to learn from fellow mom like these bloggers, I swear, it makes a difference. It makes things easier to handle and cope with.
As I end this, I hope I was able to share with you the inspiration I got from these wonderful working mom bloggers. I hope you also get to find time to read their blogs, and who knows, this might lead you to open yourself up in the possibility of blogging as well – like how it did to me.
Good luck mommy! Continue to be inspired and to inspire other fellow mommies (and the world too)!
