Last week we talked about the definitional differences in political parties. As you saw – there are as many different combinations of political views in the world as there are parenting styles. Whether or not someone is on the same point of the political spectrum as you – you can usually learn a thing or two from hearing their opposing views. With that in mind, I decided to create (and share) a list of my top favorite political blogs from moms in a variety of political ideologies.
All these moms have strong political opinions and aren’t afraid to share them.
Conservative Mommy Bloggers
These moms fall on the conservative side of politics:
- Snark and Boobs- A conservative blogger who definitely speaks her mind.
- Backyard Conservative- According to The Backyard Conservative she believes in being moderate in everything but politics. As Tom Roeser said, she went to Harvard and turned right. She says she comes from The Chicago School, not the Chicago Way.
- Chicks on the Right- They thought conservatism needed a makeover so they gave it one.
- The Conservative Mom- She describes herself as a conservatarian hippie-chick and ex-lefty. She blogs for her boys and will cover a wide range of conservative topics and of course the upcoming presidential election.
- Indignant Conservative Mom- The mom of 6 and a veteran of the United States Army who is the fourth generation of service members in her family, she blogs about all things political and of course military.
Liberal Mommy Bloggers

She is on the leadership committee of the annual Activism+Media+Policy Summit. Let’s just say she definitely has an opinion.
- Mamapundit-Part politics, part random happenings. Mamapundit is self-defined political junkie, a feminist and a progressive Episcopalian.
