Updated 1/2018. This post is one of the most popular ones on my site, so I wanted to update it with the most useful work at home mom blogs. I removed the blogs that were no longer active and added other blogs I’ve since found to be great resources for me and my business.
So I’ve been home with my kids for almost eight years now. When I first came home, I wasn’t sure I’d make it one year, and now it’s been over seven years. Amazing.
When I was working full-time at my corporate job, I had a few mom friends (and knew of several others) who quit to stay at home (some in a big, showy way), while the rest of us celebrated their good fortune.
Then, within six months, before the sadness of their departure had even worn off, they were back at work again.
What? They had escaped the corporate rat race and came back? Why?
Some mentioned they had financial struggles that were too hard to overcome. Others missed the adult interaction and found it too challenging to be home with kids all day. Each had a heart-breaking story of why they chose to come back to work. And I’ve heard stories like these over and over again.
So you can probably understand why I am somewhat amazed that almost eight years after leaving my job I am still home.
I don’t consider myself any better or smarter than any of the others who chose to return to work. Who knows…perhaps if I were in their exact same shoes, I might have chosen the same path they did.
But what has helped me last as long as I have is that I was determined, I prayed (a lot), and I became a student of those who successfully made the transition from working mom to work at home mom.
I watched them, followed them, did what they did, read what they read, interacted with them, and learned from them. And before I knew it, seven years had passed.
So who did I learn from and what did I learn?
There are a zillion (okay, maybe thousands) of great blogs for work at home moms out there, enough for you to find several to fit your work focus and your personality.
One main lesson I learned from each of them is the importance of starting your own blog.
Now, here are the top 25 work at home mom blogs I follow and learn from:
