So bloggers, tell me honestly: Do you hang out here on G+? Do you find it beneficial? Or do you drop links and that's about it?

Yeah, I'm pretty much in the same boat. I guess the link dropping helps Google results, but it seems so... I don't know... yucky.

It's hard enough to manage stress during the holidays. It's even harder when you already deal with anxiety and/or depression. Here are my tips on making it through this time - and even enjoying it.

Regrettable Parenting Choices
I consider myself a pretty good mom. On some days. On other days, I feel like I've made some... questionable parenting decisions. And occasionally, I'm 100% completely convinced that there's absolutely no chance my children will escape my house without me c...
The day's regrets look a lot different from your kids' perspective

Introduction
Hi there. I'm JD Bailey, the woman behind Honest Mom

Honest Mom is a blog and community for real moms. On the blog you'll find good stuff on raising kids, managing depression, mental health, parenting humor, recipes, giveaways, and more. The community extends to Facebook too, including private groups for mental health, parenting, and blogging support.

A big part of what I do is advocate for moms who deal with depression. My ultimate goal is to help lift the stigma of depression through my writing, while helping other moms to feel less alone in their battles with the chronic illness. I was interviewed by Katie Couric on her show, featured in Parenting Magazine, and quoted in a Vogue magazine article about depression.
