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: New York, New York
NYC Single Mom, Manhattanite and mom of one aka Linda, is a mom blogger and stand-up advocate for the single parent lifestyle, as well as a cornerstone spokesmom for adoption. Since adopting her now 8-year old daughter, Linda has made it paramount to promote the lifestyle that has brought her so much joy. A self-declared “single mom by choice,” NYC Single Mom opens up a world of parenting possibilities and advice for will-be parents, single women and those seeking the adoption path. While it’s evident that the road to adoption is neither smooth nor gentle on bank accounts, the clearer message is that of how transformative and beautifully life-changing parenting can be, whether you’re going it with a co-parent or flying solo.
Linda has a multitude of purposes, serving moms with more than intelligent dialogue about adoption and parenting. Linda dishes out great tips for events, activities, travel suggestions and kid-friendly dining experiences in New York. NYC Single Mom offers such a unique and specific perspective, which has accrued tons of press attention. She’s been on both sides of coveted interview couches, speaking with celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Ivanka Trump and Hugh Jackman! Not only is Linda’s daughter lucky to have such a cool and loving mom, but also the perks of having a famous web mom are clear (see the huge grin in the photo where she poses with Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester).
NYC Single Mom is encouraging, hopeful and somehow comforting to readers who only know each other through the blog world. It’s crucial that unconventional mom voices, like Linda’s, be heard and are prominent in the parenting community for anyone seeking single parent or adoption support or just a little advice about local events. -- Melanie Baker
