We topped 16,000 votes this year, and we’re pleased to announce that our 2018 Top Vancouver Mom Blogger is Codi Darnell of Help Codi Heal! We can’t think of a more worthy candidate, and we think you’ll agree.
2018 VM Top Blogger Codi Darnell
Codi is a 30-ish year old mother of three from the Fraser Valley. She loves writing, hates running and has somehow made it 8 years into mom life without developing a caffeine addiction. Her blog takes a real and honest – albeit sometimes sarcastic – look at what living life with paralysis is all about. She is passionate about removing stigmas and mystery from wheelchair life and is determined to reveal the good, the bad and the ugly of marriage, motherhood and moving on after life surprises you with a spinal cord injury.
I’m thrilled and honoured to be voted this year’s Vancouver Mom Top Blogger! Being part of a top 30 that consisted of so many strong and creative women wasn’t somewhere I ever expected to be but I’m incredibly grateful to have been a part of this contest. I have been introduced to so many new blogs and feel incredibly lucky to have had so much support in the voting process. A big thanks to Vancouver Mom for making all of that a possibility and to everyone who reads and supports Help Codi Heal.
