The Mommy Files: 4 Blogs You Aren’t Reading That You Should

by stacie on April 7, 2021

I’ll be the first to admit that I love reading blogs … even though they’re not nearly as hip as they once were, per se, it’s like reality television without the Snookie.

The funny thing about blogs is, there are so many out there that sometimes the really good ones get lost in the shuffle. The following blogs will not necessarily help you solve world peace or even help you answer everyday basic questions, but they will provide you with a good laugh and often some fantastic eye candy.

The Bloggess: Like Mother Teresa, Only Better — I was turned on to this blog when a friend pointed out this post which deals with a five foot tall metal chicken, bath towels, and two friends in a discount outlet. Trust me, it’s funny. However, if you’re even remotely offended by bad language, don’t even click the link because you’ll hate me forever. With that said, I nearly peed my pants laughing when I read it.

House on Hill Road — I’ve been following this blog for years, and it just makes me happy. Everything in it makes me warm and fuzzy. The adoration of Erin for her kids and husband, her mad craft skills, her ability to decorate in a way that makes me wish I were her … and the fact that she shares all of it with the masses. Just to hammer my point home, look at this bathroom … I don’t even like wallpaper!

Like the Vodka — an American woman, a Russian husband, and the last name Smirnov. Need I say more? Hilarity ensues as Stephanie describes her life as the wife of a vodka-loving Russian that eats horses. Recently, she posted this video and compared it to her marriage … a much different life than I am used to living … but one that sounds strangely exciting.

Swallowfield — Jennifer Judd-McGee is an artist living in Downeast Maine … her work is inspiring, has been featured on a Target gift card and in a new line of Timberland bags, and she’s admittedly shy. Her site is sheer eye candy for those days that you just need a break. And her Etsy shop is a nice place to shop for unique and fab gifts … basically things with which I would love to decorate my kitchen … just saying’.

Oooh - I love a good read and new blogs make me happy! I wish I’d known about awesome blogs when my kids were really little. So much fun out there now with great activities ANY mom can do!

Thanks! Will have to check these blogs out. I just started a website for moms on home decorating/home organizing, and I always enjoy reading similar blogs for inspiration!

Thanks! I love new blogs but I always get so overwhelmed when I go on a search myself. As if I needed more reading material!
