I’m sparing you my list of goals for the future. I know you don’t care. I’m much more excited anyway about bringing in the New Year cheering for other black mommy bloggers.

Their stories may not be the first to pop up in Google searches, but their posts are much-needed lifelines for women who want to feel a little less alone.

These are my go-to sources for inspiration, Pinterest-worthy images and awe-inspiring black mothers.

Black Moms Blog

Find everything from a master list of black-owned businesses to travel and cooking tips on this lifestyle blog. I love it because it really functions as a parenting hub for black moms. It’s parenting.com for black moms if you will.

The Traveling Child

Before I buy a new travel-related product, I search The Traveling Child for recommendations, and I haven’t been disappointed yet. The photography is beautiful, and the children featured are adorable.

Mater Mea

I can’t say how much I love Mater Mea. It goes far beyond parenting tips and shows black mothers unfiltered in the thick of their everyday lives. These women balance career with motherhood wonderfully.  I’m always inspired when I leave this blog.

Cups of Coco

I seriously can’t get enough of this site for its practical fashion, parenting and general lifestyle hacks. I mean, putting pancake batter in old ketchup bottles for perfectly round flapjacks… Brilliant!

Kierra D Gray

I’m a writer, so I get how important a fresh and unique perspective is. So does blogger Kierra Gray. She writes with such a relatable voice that her work often feels like a conversation between girlfriends. I hop in her comments often, so do check out her work.

Life of a Babe

I love the breastfeeding tips and practical  early parenting advice on this blog. There’s an especially moving post filled with inspiration about breastfeeding in public. It’s such a needed boost of support for moms.

Sincerely Onyi

This is another great go-to for expectant mothers, and the site covers a lot of ground. I mean, the most popular posts are about improving your newborn’s immune system, hospital bag essentials,  car maintenance checklist items and reasons to have two children under 2-years-old.

She’s a Wreck

If you’re looking for parenting tips that are fresh and current, this is the go-to. She’s a Wreck also does a great job of featuring guest writers and highlighting a wide variety of mommy writers, including yours truly.

Lady Marielle

She has a recipe for sweet potato tamales. Do I have to say more? A parenting and lifestyle blog, Lady Marielle not only boasts a divine recipe section, but she also features the cutest DIY home decor. Her son is pretty adorable too if you’re just in it for the cute kid pics.

Rosalynn Daniels

My husband actually introduced me to Rosalynn. She and her husband are college friends of his, so I just knew her as the down-to-earth and bubbly woman I once chatted for hours with at The Lawrence. When I visited her blog, I was blown away. It’s gorgeous– seriously, Martha-Stewart-meets-Oprah-level gorgeousness. It features brag-worthy recipes and fun family craft projects and even has a recipe for vanilla bourbon cranberry sauce.

Naturally Stellar

I love when I can depend on a blog to have a new post up every few days. Naturally Stellar doesn’t disappoint on that front. My favorite section on the site is the Life tab because it’s chock-full of parenting, dating and home ownership tips.

Rattles and Heels

Rattles and Heels is another site that delivers consistency in a major way. This was one of the first sites I bookmarked when I was scoping out inspiration for my blog. The content is just too practical not to love. It’s the little black dress of mom blogs.

Cherish 365

Why read? Two words: the writing, the writing, the writing. A great writer can make a walk to the store an engaging story, and journalist Jennifer Borget is a great writer. She is the secret sauce of her blog.

Unlikely Martha

The name says it all. This is another go-to of mine for gorgeous home decor ideas and recipes that are easy to follow. I tried her chicken veggie crescent braid and ate the whole thing in a weekend. http://unlikelymartha.com/chicken-veggie-crescent-braid/

Honorable mention:

Sylvia Kerali, founder of Curls Understood, isn’t a mom blogger. But as a digital marketer, she is the ultimate resource for mom bloggers. I just couldn’t leave her out of this post. When I subscribed to her email list, the goodies just rolled on in. Her video series helped me expand my social media strategy and gave me great tips for getting the Pinterest ball rolling.

  1. This is awesome! As a fellow black future mom blogger (😉), I was starting to get discouraged until I typed in what I wanted to see… BLACK MOM BLOGGERS. Every single article I read about blogging, included images that didn’t look like me. I figured maybe people wouldn’t be interested in seeing motherhood from my (our) perspective. I’ll be sure to check out these mommies! I (we) need this❤️

  2. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who
    had been conducting a little homework on this. And he actually bought me
    dinner due to the fact that I found it for him… lol.
    So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about this subject here
    on your web site.
