Top 30 Toronto Mom Bloggers: 21-25

A few weeks ago we asked you to nominate your favourite Toronto mom blogger for our third annual Top 30 Toronto Mom Bloggers contest. You came up with a fabulous list of bloggers. We visited the blogs, and we deliberated over our decisions. We narrowed the list to 30 mom bloggers. Now we’re presenting the 2014 Top 30 Toronto Mom Bloggers to you, in no particular order. Today we are introducing the next group of bloggers; 21 thru 25.

4mothers1blog is the collective work of three Toronto women who met in a Momoir Project writing class in the fall of 2009. Inspired by each others’ voices and perspectives, the women of 4mothers1blog explore the ins-and-outs of raising boys (nine between the three of them), motherhood, and the joys (and frustrations) of family life in the city.

mara shapiroMara Shapiro of Be Nice or Leave, Thanks

Mara Shapiro writes at a seemingly chaotic blog that totally makes sense. Aptly named for her parenting style (and philosophy on life), she oversteps with inappropriate slices of life, selected brand experiences, her passion for cooking, and closest to her heart, the joy of a great book.  Luckily for her, she’s allergic to housework, but not to wine. When she’s not at the gym, she’s frenching her iphone and sending passive aggressive Jewish Mother texts to her children. She’s also co-founder and Editor, Community at, a lifestyle site for women 35+. Formerly she got dressed for work, but now, from her bed-desk, she helps companies to share their brand through great content and stellar social media communication. Shockingly (mostly to her), she’s stayed married for 21 years and is the mother of 2 teenagers and daughter in her second decade. Find her as the parenting expert at L’il Niblets, on the Whirlpool Blog, the Huffington Post, and anywhere else they’ll let her step onto the soapbox. It’s all rather exhausting, isn’t it?

Lisa is a fashion-loving mama of two who started blogging while on her second maternity leave. An avid shopper and product researcher, she decided to put all of her information to good use and share it with first-time parents who often asked her for recommendations. Fab Frugal Mama is where Lisa muses on parenting, her favourite products and shares her obsession with jewelry, pretty nails, kids parties and sweets. In addition to blogging, she’s a WAHM who runs her own social media and marketing company and is a regular contributor to The Canadian Mother Resource. And if you happen to see a mom scootering around town, it’s probably her!

In my "previous life" I was a mental health my current life I'm a stay-at-home mom with 2 beautifully adventurous kids. I share everything that lands on my kitchen counter over on my blog, Kitchen Counter Chronicles. Swing by and learn how we are greening their lives; what we are crafting; what we are cooking and what we are reading. While you will often find the girls and I inside the kitchen, you will also find us out and about getting our hands dirty, exploring and learning outdoors.
