Blogging Life as a Parent


I love reading blogs. I read blogs on everything from cooking to politics to science. I love to hear people's stories and opinions, and the blogosphere has a wealth of both from all over the world. I thought it would be interesting to explore parenting stories and experiences from bloggers, and I was not disappointed. Many parenting blogs I read made me laugh, others made me mad, but they all made me realize that, just like me, most parents are just trying to figure it out day by day.

If you would like to explore the voices of parents who blog, these weblogs are excellent starting places. Visit with an open mind and an appreciation for parents who think like you do and those who don't. You may even be inspired to start blogging yourself!
