Nominations - Best Parenting Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Parenting Blog.

A couple of notes:

  • You can nominate yourself; don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • In some cases the list of finalists may contain sites not publically nominated.
  • This contest is about fun - find some new blogs to read by following the links.
To nominate a blog leave the name of the blog; the main URL for the blog; and the URL for a RSS/Atom feed (if possible) in the comment section. For example (Note that Wizbang is not eligible for nomination in any category):
Wizbang
http://wizbangblog.com/
http://wizbangblog.com/index.xml


Unless you login via Typekey, your comments may be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment. Typekey authenticated comments will be published immediately. Update (Nov. 25): Nominations are closed. Keep checking The 2006 Weblog Awards homepage for news on finalist, linking, and voting. The voting will commence the first week of December, so keep spreading the word. In the mean time you can also join us in The Weblog Awards forum to discuss the nominees, or do some campaigning.

I am nominating this parenting/food site under parenting as I am not sure where else it would go (culture?). The blog is called The Expatriate's Kitchen.

I recommend Stay At Home Motherdom because it provides a unique spin on a parenting blog. It provides some hope out there for parents in recovery yet has a universal appeal.

http://rockstarmommy.com is the best parenting blog hands down. She's brutally honest and painfully funny.

Kristin at Debaucherous and Dishevelled http://www.tallnlucky.blogs.com/

I would like to nominate Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer. She created the famous Works-For-Me-Wednesday and writes the most poignant and funny posts.

This a great blog...even if you are not a parent.

I'd like to nominate:

Mombian: Sustenance for Lesbian Moms
http://mombian.com
feed://feeds.feedburner.com/Mombian

A lifeline for the more than quarter of a million lesbian parents in the country, it provides "a mix of parenting, politics, diversions, and resources to strengthen and sustain lesbian moms in all our varied roles." Judging by the comments on the posts, clearly lots of the parenting info is of interest to the general parent population as well.

hey, i think it's pretty good for a nine month old.

2nd attempt.

I nominate Phantom Scribbler!

I nominate The Delaney Diaries for best parenting blog. It's written from the heart, with a warm, but slight self-deprecating tone.

Thank you.

Polly's deft with a turn of phrase, and makes us think about parenting and gender in ways we might not have considered before.

Robin is a fantastic writer who, as the non-bio mom in a lesbian family with two small children, brings a unique perspective on parenting to the blogosphere.

I nominate LESBIANDAD.ORG for Best Parenting Bog -- because it's smart and witty and wise and brim-full of love.

Content-wise, Daddytypes is one of the best. Witty, always on top of current parenting issues. Excellent design/product recommendations.

LesbianDad: lesbian parenthood, from a non-birthmom POV

http://lesbiandad.net
