Rebecca Gruber / LilSugar
LilSugar Associate Editor Rebecca Gruber has Hollywood on speed dial. When she’s not getting the scoop on what celebrity moms Molly Sims, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Katie Couric really want for Mother’s Day, she’s dishing advice on how to stay sane during your tot’s tantrum, cleansing before pregnancy, and the best kid-friendly apps.
Trey Burley / Daddy Mojo
Not another pop culture blog, Daddy Mojo reports from the frontlines about “poop culture” instead. Stay-at-home-dad Trey Burley hosts a support group-type forum for parents with the help of his two young sons, Toddler Mojo and More Mojo. Regular blog series include DIY a Stay-at-Home-Dad Can Do, Dad Spends a Night in the ManCave, The Life and Times of a ___ Month Old, and Daddy Mojo Reads. When he’s not reviewing movies and researching theme park survival tips, Trey contributes to Flack Me and Katie Wagner Social Media. He says, “I’m really excited to see the hidden talents of dads out there. Be proud, show that hobby—do whatever it is you do for fun.”
Jen Matuska / Mommy Instincts
Mommy Instincts writer Jen Matuska began blogging after she married her husband and before her first child was born. Locally manufactured toys, organic kids clothing, and sharing honest thoughts about the struggles and joys of parenting that keep other moms from asking, “Is it just me?” are three of the handful of things that make Jen tick. When she’s not writing for her own site, Jen contributes to The Chicago Mom’s, She Hearts It, and Zulily Blog.
Shannon Hughes / Happy Hour Mom
One half of the Happy Hour Mom team, Shannon Hughes’ role as wife and mom is the definition of on the go. Shannon’s husband’s basketball career keeps her family on its toes—they’ve set up camp in Japan, Dubai, Estonia, and California. Shannon’s travel experience has given her a unique perspective on the international business of being a mom. Via pinning, tweeting, Facebooking, chatting in forums, and blogging about cool Etsy finds and hostess tips, Shannon aims to connect moms across the globe and spark international conversations. Shannon says, “I can’t wait to see some creative entries for Mixbook’s Dad’s Got Talent Father’s Day contest, and am thrilled to be part of such a fabulous panel of judges!”
Jen Austin / Utah Mom Blog
Jen Austin of Utah Mom Blog isn’t afraid to tackle the big issues: bullying, taking a stand against violence on film, and spanking—just to name a few. Perhaps she doesn’t shy away from controversial topics because of her background as a reporter, investigative journalist, radio host, and United States Air Force police officer. When Austin isn’t serving up fresh opinions on her blog, she’s enjoying the great outdoors with her two sons.
