@beckyinbalance

Becky, who has written for the Chicago Sun-Times, The Detroit News, USA Today, the Rochester (N.Y.) Democrat and Chronicle and the Miami Herald, is also the mother of two girls. Together with Hollee Schwartz Temple, Becky writes the work/life balance column for the ABA Journal, the magazine read by half of the nation’s 1 million lawyers, and runs a blog on working motherhood, http://BeckyandHollee.com.

Their book, to be released in spring 2011 by Harlequin Nonfiction, includes interviews with more than 100 successful women and exclusive data from a study of more than 900 working mothers across the country. In 2001, while on staff at the Sun-Times, Becky co-wrote a groundbreaking and award-winning investigative series on “failing teachers” that led to statewide reforms in teacher testing and a crackdown on teacher quality in the Chicago Public Schools. The three-day series, which began one week after the birth of her first child, gave Becky her first experience at balancing motherhood and career.

In fact, while in the middle of writing this, Jenny’s creative, handsome husband wouldn’t stop talking and, and, and…. no wonder Jenny’s tagline is “I digress…”

Jenny has been keeping her humble home at Jenny On The Spot since 2004.

And for her, perspective and humor have been key to her survival in her motherhood journey.

And dancing… She does the usual “mom stuff” in addition to being the Social Butterfly for Mindbloom.com, contributing as Just for Mom editor at Type-A Mom, writing for one of the “cute” blogs with the Cheezeburger network — babiesmakingfaces.com… and then there’s vlogging… managing her alter-ego… Oh, and coffee… LOTS of coffee.

@mommyniri

Been born in South Africa and having survived everything from poverty to riots Nirasha, known as Niri, shelved her desire for writing in a turbulent time to pursue a career in software engineering.

Cecily Kellogg

@cecilyk

Cecily Kellogg discovered blogs totally by accident in 2003. She immediately dumped her passion for poetry and found her true writing voice at last when she launched her blog called “And I Wasted All That Birth Control” chronicling her struggles with infertility in March of 2004. After a significant roller coaster of drama, in June of 2006 her daughter Tori was born. After six months of parenting, Cecily changed her blog title to “Uppercase Woman,” a title created by her husband but voted for by her readers. She doesn’t really consider herself a mommy blogger, but everyone else does. She considers herself a memoir blogger, or perhaps a memoir-in-process blogger. Cecily blogs about life, politics, being sober and her unusual spirituality, among other less interesting things. She also swears constantly, has no intention of stopping, and is looking forward to many parent/teacher conferences as a result.

Her latest blog posts:

  • Missed Signals
  • Stop - Look - Listen - Live
  • Yesterday Was One Crazy Ass Day. Or Crazy Brain Day. Whatever.

Tara Kuczykowski

Tara Kuczykowski is a married mom of three boys and two girls, ages 2 to 8 years, living in Columbus, OH.

Tara is introducing the basics of couponing to a new generation of coupon clippers through her money-saving blog, Deal Seeking Mom, teaching readers across the U.S. how to stretch their budgets in order to make room for occasional splurges. Living the good life while spending less is possible with just a little effort.
