I am constantly on the hunt for stalk-worthy blogs to add to my daily Bloglovin’ feed. When I worked in an office, I used to start my day by visiting various news sites to get the update on world happenings. Now, as a SAHM, I spend my mornings with a lukewarm cup of black tea and my pretend online friends… while throwing some Cheerios and fruit at my toddler.
Mom life. So glamorous.
I participated in Helene In Between‘s #GetMoreWebinar a few weeks ago (the blog is growing, people!), and since then I have discovered several new daily reads. Of course I’m letting you in on my finds, because that’s what friends are for. 😉 Happy Friday to all!
1. The Daily Tay | www.thedailytay.com
I have followed Tay’s blog for some time now, and I can’t get enough. She’s hilarious, real, and is totally not throwing products in your face all the time (except her t-shirt business, which is pretty cool so that’s okay with me). Did I mention that she’s funny? I went to link to one of her particularly funny posts, and I can’t pick just one. The blog world needs more of this, IMO.
2. Naptime Chai | www.thebenroecks.com
I just discovered Lisa’s blog through Helene’s webinar, and I’m pretty sure we were meant to be friends. This post about the crazy ladies on the pregnancy message boards sold me. But really, have you stepped your virtual foot into one of those What To Expect communities lately? Lisa totally took the words right out of my mouth.
3. Little Baby Garvin | www.littlebabygarvin.blogspot.com
One, she has three adorable girls. Two, I aspire to be half as put together as she appears. Three, Jessica can do no wrong when it comes to baby styling. Or home styling. Or party planning. Or brunch.
4. Love Taza | Rockstar Diaries | www.lovetaza.com
But… how? Naomi has three little kids in a small apartment in NYC, takes them everywhere (like halfway around the world to Australia!), and always has perfect hair. Stylist Hailey, if you’re reading this, I want this woman’s hair. Her style and photography is on point, and her blog is wildly successfully, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy pretending to be her friend as much as I do.
5. Cotten Tales | www.cottentales.com
Of course I have plenty of other reads I could share, but here’s a self-promo at it’s most shameful. I have some big plans coming up for this little blog (don’t I always?), so make sure you’re following along. You can find me on Bloglovin’.. and Facebook… and Instagram… and Pinterest… and Twitter.
I’m currently working on launching a little thing called ADVERTISING in this space. Crazy, right? I’ll also be on the hunt for some awesome guest bloggers soon, so hit me up if you’re interested!
Don’t worry. You’ll still get plenty of pregnancy rants and #dbunny photos. I know what I’m good at. 😉 But, I’m always open to suggestions!
What would you like to see more of on Cotten Tales?

Did you ever decided if you were going to hop on the SnapChat train? I would love to follow you on there, too!
Love the new updates and am excited about the things you have in the works!
Samantha Cotten says
I have an account (samanthacotten), but I have almost never used it. I just don’t know what to snap! Maybe I’ll get on board… We’ll see. 😉
Totally meant to be friends – no question! Thanks for the shout-out 🙂
I love your blog- just discovered it! I am also a fellow Hoosier.
