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: Manhattan
You’ve probably heard of Lollapalooza. But, Mamapalooza is a complete other story with mom Joy Rose behind it all. She is a writer, motivational speaker, and award-winning singer who along with her band “Housewives on Prozac” coined the phrase “Moms Rock.” She founded Mamapalooza in 2002 and has grown the company each year, using grass-roots programs that empower and support mothers internationally. Additionally, the annual M.O.M. conference in New York City is another chance for mothers to gather and listen to debates leading academic institutions and activists have to present on the leading data of motherhood and maternal research.
And so it is clear that Mamapalooza is more than just a blog or a web address. It is a platform for mothers yearning for the chance to lay a new foundation onto their lives based completely around art. Joy Rose attempts to redefine what it means to be a modern mother and uses her company as the spring board to reaching millions of people with appearances and mentions in Good Morning America, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, People Magazine, and, NPR Radio. — Gordon Rago
