These six women do their best to be great moms, writers and carry out the things that day to day lives bring them. Some work, some cook, but they all share amazing things with us. Check out this insight into a few great blogs (and moms) you might have missed the first time around!

Meet Cheri Heaton Of I Am Momma Hear Me Roar: "Motherhood is the most amazing thing I have ever taken part in. It's definitely hard sometimes, but I want to think of it as empowering rather than restricting. I don't want to think of my kids as a ball and chain."

Meet Jade Sims of Chikaustin: "We have made many decisions in the past couple of years regarding our family. We downsized and moved out of the Austin city limits to the lake. It was really important to me to teach my children how to enjoy the simple things in life, the things I had begun to take for granted. Sitting on the porch. Enjoying a sunset."

Megan of Penny Carnival: #3: "I love coming up with ways to solve problems around the house and I figure if that helps a few other people in some small way, super."

Meet Phyllis Grant of Dash & Bella: "Let the kids help with the cooking because they are more likely to try (and maybe eat up) the dish. And I have to admit that I do bribe my kids a lot (many people disagree with this technique). "If you eat your broccoli you get to have some dessert" works brilliantly. "

Meet Jamie of Steady Mom: "Mothers today juggle so much--multiple jobs, children, hobbies, day-to-day home management, and more. I hope to offer some ideas and inspiration mothers need to nurture their children and enjoy deeper relationships in their families."

Meet Tiffany Bird of Simply Modern Mom: "Learn to say no. Prioritize what is important in your life at this moment. Work on those. Then when you have run out of time, learn to let the other stuff go."
