I started blogging back in .... 2013 I think under a different name. Back then I wasn't a mommy or even expecting but the main blogs that I read were mommy blogs because I have a weird thing about being interested in other peoples lives (anyone else addicted to Family Vlogs on YouTube?). I read a lot of lifestyle blogs but I kept finding myself being drawn to more family/parenting oriented blogs and that's still a lot of what I read today.
When I became pregnant with RJ I searched for mommy blogs written by black women and they aren't always as easy to find as the "other" blogs are. This really has so much to do with the fact that we aren't supporting each other to our full capacity. Luckily, I became a part of an amazing community of women [BLM] where I connected with bloggers of ALL kinds but I still wanted to take the opportunity to put my mommy bloggers on the forefront.
