2020 Vancouver Mom Top 30 Bloggers: 25-30
Katie Jameson, Life, Love, Loss
It’s hard to describe what Katie writes about, but that’s possibly because grief is one of the hardest topics to share, or, to ingest. After the loss of her first son, Katie spent years feeling broken and lost, never knowing how to to “fix” the crack in her heart. She began writing her way through grief, and eventually discovered that sharing about hardships was a way to encourage healing. In 2019 Katie began her Blog ‘Life Love Loss’, where she openly shares about her life in both a lighthearted and deeply meaningful way. She vividly discusses what grief truly looks and feels like, while also sharing the hilarity of raising three young kids aged four and under. Her space has become a safe place where Mom’s of all kinds can relate, grieving hearts can settle, and those who haven’t walked in her shoes can learn. Encouraging openness and kindness across the board, Katie has dedicated herself to offering perspective to broken hearts of all kinds.
Savannah Walsh, That Caffeinated Mom
Savannah Walsh is a mom to soon to be five littles, who started her online journey as a search for community. Struggling with feeling isolated in motherhood, she began opening up online about her struggles within motherhood whether it be about mental health, co-parenting, body image issues, or struggling to balance raising a large, growing family. Savannah wants to bring down the walls around being an “Instagram perfect put together mom” and bring forward more honest and raw motherhood, while in PJ’s drinking coffee at 3pm. Savannah is a big small shop supporter and is learning how to make her life more ethical and sustainable, in particular focusing on ethical and sustainable toys.
Karen, The Agency Blog
Karen started TheAgencyBlog.ca as a creative outlet. The blog’s inspirational content comes from her two beautiful daughters and one very supportive husband. Her lifestyle blog is for the everyday women: those who love knowing about the latest in fashion, trending beauty products and tips, must haves for the little ones and how to still be you amongst all that life has in store. “I’ve found that women tend to lose themselves, their passions, amide trying to be the best version of themselves for other aspects of their lives; whether that be family, work, or relationships. It might be hard to believe but I think you can be a good wife, a wonderful mother and treat yourself well, all at the same time.”
Melissa, The Self-Made Mama
Melissa is the owner of Self-Made Mama, an online education and coaching business that teaches women how to build profitable businesses from home while raising babies. As a busy mom of two little boys, guardian to her teenage brother, and wife to a hardworking police officer, Melissa knows what it’s like to feel completely overwhelmed by the demands of motherhood- not to mention building a business from scratch! With a knack for systematizing and simplifying entrepreneurship and help from a LOT of iced coffee, Melissa supports other mompreneurs through her signature membership, The Self-Made Mama Society, and through private business coaching. She is more than a little travel obsessed and even appeared on HGTV’s House Hunters International while living in Spain with her family. When she’s not working, Melissa is usually planning her next trip or drinking wine on the patio … or both!
