In the last few months, parents have had to homeschool their children and find different activities to keep them entertained without going to school, the playground, the movies, or even their friends’ house. They have had to adapt to a new kind of life in which they had to keep their children’s anxiety over their routines being changed under control while still taking time for themselves. It has been hard but luckily there have been plenty of online resources to help. These next five women have had up-and-running blogs for years now with several tips and ideas to keep motherhood real.
Laura Scott, M.D., has had her blog “A Little Bit of Lacquer” since 2011. She stared writing when she was in Harvard Medical School and continued to do so through her Residency in the University of Miami. Even though nowadays she is more active on her Facebook account (you can find her under the same name as her blog), she is still sharing her knowledge with moms all over the world. With three kids ages 7, 5, and 3, Scott has written on several topics and given advice that fit her area of expertise and her experience as a mom. You can see her writing about medicine, outfits, beauty, décor, travel, food, and, of course, motherhood.
Brittany P. Robertson started her “Backporch Confessions” blog back in 2011 because she believed she had no idea what to do as a new mom and thought there would be more people out there in her exact same situation. She is a college instructor who fostered kids to adopt and now has three children. She keeps her blog updated with posts almost every month, and you can see her more active on her Instagram account (@brittanyprobertson). What should you expect her to write about? Fostering and adopting, faith, family, lifestyle, what she calls mom style, and makeup.
