By our estimate, there are approximately three million mom blogs in the world—but we cop to playing favorites. Even those of us at SMITH who aren’t moms, or even parents, can’t get enough of the honest, intense, funny, and explosive Girl’s Gone Child, from writer, blogger, confessor, and mother Rebecca Woolf.
We asked Rebecca for her favorite mom blogs, and she responded by offering SMITH readers not just her favorite mom blogs, but her favorite actual posts. They are lovely.
For anyone who has ever doubted the literary talent of the mommy blogger, perhaps you need to take a closer look. The following excerpts are some of my favorite recent (and not so recent posts) written by amazingly talented and perceptive mothers and women, expressing their deepest fears and truths and favorite moments. Enjoy.
