Spread the love

As a parenting and family blogger myself, I love connecting with other bloggers who are parents and reading their thoughts a few times a week. In fact, I have a whole folder in my browser’s bookmarks dedicated to the best parenting blogs on the web. I sift through them each week to read new tips, stories, and moments from mom bloggers I can relate to.

If you’re looking for a new mom blog to read, consider the ones on my list. It’s a complete mix of parenting, from perspectives of older mom bloggers to blogs that curate stories from parents of all walks of life, making for an eclectic blend of parenthood with something for every parent.

28 Must-Read Best Parenting Blogs

The following parenting blogs are (in my opinion only) the best parenting blogs to read in 2022. Side note: It’s impossible for me to pick favorites out of these, so the list is in no particular order!

1. Coffee + Crumbs

I love parenting blogs that offer perspectives of parents from all different walks of life, which is exactly what Coffee + Crumbs does. The collaborative blog features moms with stories to share about motherhood, friendship, and life in general.

2. Wealthy Single Mommy with Emma Johnson

Emma Johnson is a single mom with two kids and a business who shares what it’s like to juggle all the things on her blog, Wealthy Single Mommy. As a single mom myself for most of my kids’ lives, I can absolutely related to Emma’s passion for building the best for her kids. Her blog is filled with tips for starting and growing a business and making money while also sharing helpful ideas for single moms to live their best lives.

4. Aha! Parenting

Aha! Parenting has been one of my favorite blogs to read for years now.

5. Happy You, Happy Family

The name behind Happy You, Happy Family is Kelly Holmes, a Certified Parent Educator.

6. The Work at Home Wife

I started reading Angie Neslon’s The Work at Home Wife about a year or so before I started my own work at home journey. The blog really inspired me to not give up on my dream of working from home and being more available to my kids. I still read it today, even after being a business owner for 5+ years, just because I’m always open to starting new income streams and seeing what’s out there. For any moms looking into starting a business or working from home, this blog is a must-read.

7. Mom Knows It All – From Val’s Kitchen

I’ll be completely transparent here: Valerie Gray from Mom Knows It All – From Val’s Kitchen is part of my family. Still, there’s no bias; her blog really is one of the best parenting blogs. Val’s been blogging for years about travel, food, pets, parenting, and more, eventually combining her two popular blogs into one. I love following along with her realistic recipes for busy parents, and her gift guides feature some really unique and fun products.

20. Direct Advice for Dads (DAD)

Dads absolutely deserve parenting blogs that cover issues they might have, too which is why I love Direct Advice for Dads (DAD). Although it’s for the daddies out there, I browse it too. It’s nice to get a different perspective from a dad’s point of view sometimes! Dads can be so raw and real, which is as refreshing as it is comical at times.

21. Grown & Flown

I find the teenager/young adult space of parenting blogs lacking, as many of them are geared toward younger kids still in the home for the next several years. However, Grown & Flown is all about the older kiddos (I have one approaching college age myself!) and how to navigate high school, college, and beyond.

25. Motherly

I follow Motherly mostly for parenting-related news and personal stories, but its “What to Read” and health sections are also fantastic. It’s updated so frequently that it’s hard for me to keep up with – but that’s not a bad thing at all. I love blogs that have so much content ready for me to dig into at any time.

26. Fatherly

I can’t add Motherly to the list without adding Fatherly, too. Though not from the same brand family, Fatherly has equally awesome content but in a way that’s designed for dads to relate to. Still, as I said before, I love getting dads’ perspectives.

It’s introduced me to all kinds of interesting topics, like crafting using things found in nature and ways to clean using natural ingredients and household items. Note: I don’t believe this blog gets updated anymore, but I still think it’s worth a mention because of all the awesome evergreen tips it provides.
