Moms share experience and accountability through blogs

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- "Mommy bloggers." They're everywhere, and they're more powerful than ever.

More women are connecting with each other online through "mommy blogs."

The blogs have given moms a platform to talk about their thoughts and opinions.

"I've definitely got more into fitness and health and nutrition over the past couple of years," blog follower and mother Sarah Groman said. 

One blog Groman finds inspiration is Fit & Fueled Moms from blogger Kenda Mullert.

"She seemed like a really viable source and so I just started following her blog, and it's been really great actually," she said.

Mullert is among the web's millions of chatty, social-savvy moms with a passion for blogging.

Some moms blog for the sake of having their thoughts shared publicly. Others blog as a way to just stay connected.

Mullert says she blogs because she wants to make a difference in the lives of other women. "Maybe I don't know how to put into words what I'm feeling as a mom going through all those struggles, but I know other moms are out there, so when I saw that and I experienced I'm like, 'oh my gosh, she totally knows what I'm going through.'"

Since giving birth to her 2-year-old son Alex, Mullert realizes that motherhood is more about give than it is take.

As a mom, she knows how hard it is to keep yourself a priority.

She says it's easy to just give up on your sleep, on your alone time, and on your body. "I mean, it's just hard to be a mom and then it's hard to take care of yourself and to keep yourself as a priority."

As a mommy blogger, it's Kenda's goal to help you change that. Not only is she a wife and a mom to a 2-year-old who hates veggies, she's also a wellness coordinator and a certified personal trainer.

"Accountability is motivation for change," Mullert said. "If no body's holding you accountable then there's really no secret reason in it to change."

Moms hold other moms accountable over anyone else.

"It's kind of nice to see that other parents are having the same issues that I might be having with my children or just to be motivated to work out," said Kristen Herring, another Fit & Fueled Moms follower. "It really just is so hard to find that motivation with the craziness of lives today there's not a moments rest."

Because every mom deserves to be strong and healthy.

It's all about offering a little influence and motivation, creating a community with a little food for thought.
