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
Heather Cabot’s blog The Well Mom is an escape for moms, a cyber-heaven. Cabot offers five thorough ways for busy moms to get some precious you-time, which includes getting well-nourished, well-centered, well-toned, well-pampered, and well-connected.
And Cabot’s resume highlights why she is just the woman to be doling out this advice. As a former ABC news anchor and reporter, she veered off that busy work life for a much different kind of busy: raising a set of twins in New York City.
Her tech-saviness has also received the attention of big media outlets and she has appeared on the Today Show, the Rachael Ray show, the Martha Stewart show, among several others. Cabot, however, couldn’t resist being away from work and now acts as Yahoo’s web life editor. She provides advice on topics like cyber-parenting and showing how web tools can be used to connect families.
The objective of her blog is to give encouragement and advice to moms on how to better nourish and fulfill their lives. Cabot describes the site as a guilt-free zone because mothers shouldn’t ever feel a sense of guilt for taking the time to pamper and take care of themselves. Moms can find tips on beauty, fashion, healthy food, physical training, and plenty of spa getaways as well. — Gordon Rago
