The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging From: New York, New York
You’re a mom. You’re trying to balance it all—family, career, some semblance of a social life. The women behind Mommyish.com understand how hard it can be, and they’ve compiled an easy-to-navigate, fun-to-read parenting site that blends news, features, and entertainment.
The most current feature story on the site is Koa Beck’s “Why I’m an Egg Donor.” In the piece, Koa tells the story of Wendie Wilson, a woman who has donated her eggs five times in the course of her life. Both Wendie and Koa explore the stigma attached to egg donation and the social implications of becoming an egg donor—especially in comparison to the generally non-stigmatized act of sperm donation.
The editorial team at Mommyish also posts bits of entertainment, like their celebrity “guess who” childhood photo. There are also some really great lists, including “8 Disney Movie Scenes I Refuse to Show My Daughter;” and “Top 5 Things to do While Feeding Your Newborn." The photo galleries add an eye-catching touch to these smart, funny, informative posts. - Kimberly Mollo
