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: Long Island
Spice up your life with this single mom at Mommy Masala! If you can describe her blog in one word, it would be “real.” This mom uses her blog to cope with her divorce and share stories about her adventures with her daughter. She’s “out to save myself, one spicy, dramatic, exhilarating moment at a time.” There’s room for everyone in her blog world – she shares links to delicious recipes she’s found online.
She takes you into her world by sharing openly about why she got divorced and takes her readers on her emotional journey of being a single mom, and finally reaching a point where she is celebrating her divorce.
This mom is not afraid to be real with her emotions. She describes how angry she was when her husband cheated on her, how hard it is watching her daughter have those “first steps” and having no one to share the moment with, and reflecting on her marriage. She writes about having Girl’s Night Out’s and also posts a “Pic of the day project” to let her readers see in pictures just what exactly is going on in her life. — Jin Lee
