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
Nancy Friedman is not your ordinary mom blogger: She is a traveling mom from New York who takes trips nationally and internationally. From Hip to Housewife is about “momming”, aging, and what she calls a”20 year quest to lose the same 10 pounds.” While she includes stories about her family, Nancy explains to her readers that her children do not want her to write about them; however, that doesn’t mean she can’t write about her adorable dog Bentley, a struggling actor who was dim-wittedly denied!
Friedman expresses her honest opinions about life, weight-loss, and the affects we have on our kids and vice versa. She’s not afraid to admit that she hates mother’s day and that she loves her virtual baby—kidvuz.com, a site where tweens state their opinions about kid’s products. She has over 3,000 followers on twitter and frequently communicates her personal opinions along with what’s on her mind.
