In just over two years, YUMMommy has become a force to be reckoned with in the world of blogging. Named number two on JET Magazine's list of "5 Must-Read Blogs For Black Moms", YUMMommy is a place where women gather to learn the truth about what motherhood and pregnancy are really like, read up on the latest fashion finds, check out product reviews and much more.
YUMMommy Is Born
YUMMommy was launched on Friday, January 15, 2010. It started off as a place to chronicle my journey as a newly single mom. This was to be a place where I could express myself without judgement. I wanted to share my story and experiences in hopes that what I had to say would help, inspire, touch or motivate a reader or two.
As a young mom who did get caught up in the rosy pictures of parenting printed in some of those parenting magazines and obsessed over not being able to afford a $600 sleigh crib from Pottery Barn, this blog has given me a chance to set the record straight for other inexperienced moms. The average young parent isn't most likely going to be able to afford the $400 stroller or $1,000 glider listed on the baby's essential lists in a lot of these magazines out there. YUMMommy has also become a very reliable resource for moms of color to come and feel at home. There's no denying that when it comes to us, there is a HUGE lack of material out there.
However, this is not just a mommy blog. You'll find posts on fashion and beauty products as well as posts on sex and marriage. There's a little something for everyone here. And in case you were wondering, YUMMommy stands for Young Urban Modern Mommy.
YUMMommy The Writer
I'm a 20-something year old author, blogger and aspiring mogul with a passion for writing, fashion and giving to others. I have a wonderful husband, who sometimes pushes my buttons for the heck of it. We've been together over seven years and have overcome major roadblocks. Together we have two beautiful children, Moo and JJ. I'm a cross between a Southern belle and a tomboy. Books, traveling, being a mom and trying to take over the world are my current obsessions!
