i saw a follow friday series on damsel in dior that featured various bloggers, fell in love, and decided to create one specifically for mama bloggers.  i am starting this series in the hopes of creating a who's who list of mama bloggers that can be used as a resource for other expectant or new mamas.  i am hoping that this series will provide a list of mothers that other women can look to for inspiration, knowledge, and a sense of community. i was the first of my friends to get pregnant and despite the fact that i've always wanted to be a mother, i didn't have a clue about pregnancy or raising a child.  i started reading baby blogs and found "friends" that had been through what i was going through.  i learned about cloth diapering, natural child birth, breastfeeding, dressing while pregnant, and everything else i needed to know from these mothers that had already been through what i was going through and so openly shared their experiences.  it turns out mommy bloggers were the best resource out there for me.

i hope that through this new series, you will find a few new friends and some good reading material.
