Tina.v.b

The most witty

What Tina doesn’t seem to have much of? Taboos. What she does have? A great sense of humour. The blackboard she holds up with funny captions offers light-hearted and frank openers for real conversations around pregnancy and motherhood in which her community can find support. She’s one to follow through all the ups and downs of growing a family, while reflecting on the constant learning curve of what it is to be a mother. With energy, enthusiasm, gratefulness… and lots of hilarious honesty!

Slummy Single Mummy

The most supportive

This single mummy’s blog is a delight to read. It’s no wonder it’s received so many awards, and such a huge readership. Jo Middleton became famous as a mum for her recipes, tips, and generally sharing the “(mis)adventures of a single mum” until she eventually also wrote a book about it. The imaginative ‘rants’ section (featuring buckets or Gwyneth Paltrow lately) is a particularly fun read. Now this mummy is a “40+ cat lady” and even a granny, you’ll also find her on social media from Instagram to Twitter. She is a real resource; you should also look out for her ‘Untold Stories‘ section she opened for parents to share stories anonymously and allow them to find support around difficult and taboo subjects.

 

Flying the nest

The ones who changed their vlogging genre

Flying the nest started in 2015 as the story of Aussie couple Stephen and Jess doing just that: travelling full time across the globe. But a few months ago this became a family vlog with the arrival of baby Hunter. For those who loved the refreshing energy and honesty of the couple who even told us about the time they broke up on their new podcast, this will be the family to look out for to discover with them what it’s like to travel and grow a family. From living through the moment they discover they’re going to have a baby, to the gender reveal, birth, and now the baby’s first Halloween… a whole new adventure awaits them now there’s a new full-time traveller in the gang.
