The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging from: Long Island
Want to read up on kid product reviews, learn some travel tips, snag a few coupons, and find celeb lookalike outfits for cheap? Look no further than Vera Sweeney’s site, Lady and the Blog. This fashionable mom, who began in the business world and took to the blogosphere after having children, is truly talented with the web.
Vera encompasses all her passions into her blog—there’s a travel section stocked with tips for all different destinations, a food section with recipes and reviews, product reviews for both kids and moms, a beauty and fashion section, and an “extreme couponing” section where Vera posts deals like online discount codes and free downloads and samples. She also keeps a “Personal” section, where she blogs about her own life as a wife, a mother, a professional blogger, and a trendy woman in her mid-thirties. There are plenty helpful tidbits to learn from Vera, and thankfully, she puts them all on Lady and the Blog. — Kimberly Mollo
