Your Favorite Female Mormon Bloggers

Posted by Jenna, Under Uncategorized

I’m working on a really exciting project for one of my classes and could use your help in the preliminary stages of my research. I’m going to study some of the top blogs written by Mormon females, but when I write down the list of blogs I know of I’m not coming up with enough. Would you mind telling me what your favorite blogs are that are written by Mormon females?

The only criteria I have so far is that they must indicate their religion on their site in some way. In an FAQ section, a post with pictures of them walking out of an LDS temple, a link in their sidebar to Mormon.org.  They can be a mommy blogger, lifestyle blogger, craft blogger, food blogger, fashion blogger, or anything in between. They must be Mormon, must be female, and they must make both of those things known to their readers.

    I wouldn’t say she is my favorite but she can be entertaining (and I don’t think she has been mentioned yet on your facebook page):

  2. Other than yourself, here are the Mormon female bloggers I read:

    +Rockstar Diaries
    +Oh Happy Day
    +Ruffles and Stuff

    There were a couple more that I thought were Mormon, but I can’t find a mention of it on their blogs to confirm.

    Cardigan Empire is definitely Mormon. She is the godmother of Stephanie Nielson’s kids.

  5. My favorite is Every Day I Write the Book. I know the author’s name is Kacy, but I don’t know her surname.

    I don’t know if this one counts, because it’s a group, but I also like Feminist Mormon Housewives a lot.

    Also, because of your post about grammar from the other day, I thought you might like a gentle reminder that the singular of criteria is criterion. :)

    Thanks for the grammar tip Erin! I didn’t know that. You’re going to have me sounding so smart within the next few weeks.

  12. I wouldn’t say favorites, because I’ve never really read her blog, but I know somewhat famous is Stephanie Nielsen, the woman who was burned (along with her husband) when the plane they were in crashed. I remember first hearing her story on Oprah.

  14. I’m surprised no one has mentioned http://www.cjanekendrick.com/ yet. She is amazing. Though I’m not Mormon, much of what she writes resonates with me. If you haven’t read her work, I highly recommend her blog!!

  17. I read like the rockstar diaries and oh happy day. The writer of oh happy day also has a sister that blogs but I couldn’t find anything on her blog about being mormon, other than when she mentions that she watched conference, but her blog is designmom.com

    I’m glad to read about so many more that I will get to discover!

    Ahhh! Everyone got the ones I know, but I’m excited to add the others listed. I would never have guessed that some of my favorite bloggers would be Mormon, as I am not Mormon myself. I wonder what the mix of readers are of these blogs- Mormon vs not Mormon. Jenna, let us know what your project conclusions are when you are finished! I’d love to know!

  27. My new favorite blogger is Meg in Progress. She is an amazing writer and has one of the first blogs I have read that is completely honest about everything. I know she is mormon because she talked about going to an LDS temple last week.

    Good luck!
