1. A Cup Of Jo – Much more than a mommy blog, author Joanna Goddard is a magazine writer turned blogger living with her two children in NYC. Joanna writes about motherhood as well as fashion, design, and travel. We especially love her holiday gift guides and Motherhood Mondays, which feature honest depictions of motherhood from women around the country.
