Melinda Roberts is a pioneer in the blogging community, the O.G. mommy blogger! She founded The Mommy Blog in 2002 to capture fleeting family moments. She's a single mom to 3 children and worked in the nonprofit sector for 12 years before focusing on her writing. She's a key influence in the area of moms and the Internet. She flaunts her flaws and keeps her "real mom" quotient high. As a single parent, she's managed to found a design company and become a spokeswoman for the mommy blogging community.
Melinda is also a founding panelist on Momversation.com, has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN Prime Time, CNN.com, ABC News Now, Fox and Friends, CBS, BYUTV, Johnson's Baby Channel, Divorce360.com, and WebMD.com.
She published a collection of essays from the blog in her book, Mommy Confidential: Adventures from the Wonderbelly of Motherhood.
She is doing more than journaling about motherhood – she’s meeting moms where they are with timely content and useful advice. Raised in Chicago, she lives with her family in the CA Bay Area and tries her very best to use her powers for good.
