Not all moms write about parenting on their blogs and websites, some have other interests they carry through to the word-laden method of communicating with the world. Blogging has become a world pass-time, not only for reading, but often for writing.
These 30 Coolest Mom (or Women’s) Sites Online were selected by mom readers and writers who seek out information, inspiration, and living truths. Just to be honest, not all of these sites are about mommy topics, and not all of these women are mommy bloggers. Some are writers, a few crafters, and a graphic artist or two are among the list that made our top 30 Coolest Sites for 2017. The only criteria nobody messed with, was that all bloggers had to be women. Come along and click on a few – or all of them!
As I sorted through these links, I realized that many of them are not blogs, but rather websites, and some are even sub-sites. I’ve noted in their profile if they are subsites, but otherwise, I’ve left them in, because they are excellent resources for women. And it’s pretty cool to have a list of the 30 coolest women’s websites.
