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: Brooklyn, New York
With its bright, inviting aesthetic and punchy, wit-filled posts, FinSlippy is a major player in the mom blog realm. Founder and Mom-In-Chief, Brooklyn-based Alice Bradley has propelled an impressive writing career at such titles as Redbook and Good Housekeeping, adding blog maven to her resume after giving birth to her son Henry, now 9 (she truly can’t believe it!). In addition to FinSlippy, Alice recently co-wrote the parenting cult hit, Let’s Panic About Babies!: How to Endure and Possibly Triumph Over the Adorable Tyrant who Will Ruin Your Body, Destroy Your Life, Liquefy Your Brains and Finally Turn You into a Worthwhile Human Being. Yes, she really is that humorous.
Alice blogs with an ease and spark that’s as fun to read as it is to say FinSlippy ten times fast. As the solo contributor, the sheer volume and tenacity of her endured posting is enough to marvel at; and then there’s the fact that her writing is so relatable and entertaining. Of course, she covers ALL the typical mom topics and then some, from coping with watching her son grow up so fast to the terror of elementary school boys’ sleepover parties and a positive suggested reading list every now and then. She also contributes the growing vlog community, Momversation, which raises pertinent questions concerning motherhood and children.
As full-of-life as FinSlippy is, Alice faces her share of struggles with her son Henry as he attempts to test her patience and love, which he’ll soon learn will never waiver. In the midst of mommy crisis and pure delight, Alice never produces a dull moment on FinSlippy. This is a definite for your daily mom blogroll and a new addition for all vocabularies. Heck, turn FinSlippy into a word because it’s just so fun. Read FinSlippy, be FinSlippy, whatever it might mean to you…but definitely read it. -- Melanie Baker
