Be sure to cheer on your faves in the comments section below!
A Lot of Loves by Marilyn Belsham
Marilyn Belsham created A Lot of Loves in 2009 as a way to share what she calls her “misadventures as a domestically challenged mom.” Although Marilyn doubts she’ll ever be a true domestic diva, we think she’s well on her way! A former business analyst, now a stay-at-home mother of two, Marilyn discusses the struggles of motherhood and the loss of identity it can bring. She uses A Lot of Loves as an opportunity to share herself and as a way to meet and chat with other similar minded people. Marilyn’s blog also links to a wide-range of helpful product reviews – and sometimes giveaways – on her sister-site, A Lot of Loves Reviews. If she loves it, Marilyn will glady rave about a product but she is completely honest about her dislikes as well. Read more at www.alotofloves.com.
The Momoir Project by Cori Howard
The Momoir Project truly began when mom and award-winning journalist, Cori Howard, first started teaching other Vancouver moms how to write their own stories. The Momoir Blog was created to give Cori’s students – and any writer moms for that matter – an online forum where they could meet and write together. In addition to Cori, the Momoir Blog has several regular contributors who blog about their own lives and include writing prompts for inspiration for more comments and stories. This essentially creates a virtual feedback forum – where moms can talk to each other and share their experiences. Of course, Cori will also consider your own tightly-woven story for The Momoir Blog. And if you’re having trouble getting it down to 500 words she can help with that too! Read more at www.themomoirproject.com.
