The Successful Single Mom

Honorée does her best to simplify the solutions to today's quickly evolving single mom challenges into easy-to-apply bite-sized pieces. She believes that all single moms have the power within them to create a life they truly love, and she's on a mission to empower them to do just that. 

The Successful Single Mom blog is all about single moms and how they can create the life, love, finances and future they desire for themselves and their kids. 

The blog provides insights single moms can use to feel great, find new love, generate additional income, cook healthy meals and find a general sense of happiness and success. 

Genie in a Blog

Genie in a Blog documents the good, the bad, and the ridiculous of life with twins plus one.

Leigh Ann Torres started blogging in 2008 when she realized that baby books weren’t really her thing, but she still wanted to document life with preemie twins and massive sleep deprivation

She’s often funny, sometimes poignant, but always real. And tired. She’s always tired.



Mommy Katie

Mommy Katie is a blog filled with family friendly reviews and giveaways on the various products and services that are out there.

From a ongoing Preparing for Baby Guide that includes all of the hottest must have items for baby that are on the market along with the seasonal guides, to the recipes for picky eaters, there is a little something for everyone. 




Baby Proofed Parents

Kirsten Brunner, MA, LPC, and Cheryl Sipkowski, MS, LPC are two therapists who decided that they wanted to do more to empower expectant and new parents.

They are regular contributors to the Huffington Post and Scary Mommy, and will be launching their BPP YouTube channel in January 2015 which will  feature video clips designed to "bring sane to baby brain"!

"Despite being therapists, we are definitely not perfect parents. Everything we put on our blog is infused with authenticity and humor - we want it to be a fun and interesting place for new parents to hang out." --Kirsten Brunner

The (Reformed) Idealist Mom

Kelly is a recovering perfectionist, she procrastinates, and she’s constantly tripping over her own feet. In the plus column, she’s really good at making spreadsheets and eating baked goods.
