Baby Making Machine
Jennifer Borget is a journalist and blogger from Austin, TX. She has a passion for capturing and telling stories, then sharing them with the world. Her background in journalism helped inspire her to start the award-winning parenting blog BabyMakingMachine.com. There she documents her family life and inspires parents to make a difference and cherish life’s moments and stories through photos and video. Her work has been featured on the Today Show, Huffington Post, and Parenting Magazine’s Parenting.com. And she has been honored as a BlogHer Voice of the Year in 2014 and 2016.
Mommy Nani Booboo
Jenni Chiu is the blogger behind MommyNaniBooboo.com – a blog that grew in popularity before she could change the name to something more respectable. Jenni is a writer and video maker who has created content for companies like SheKnows Media, Huffington Post, SheSpeaks Inc., Raising America/HLNTV, and Viacom. She lives in the Bay area with her husband, two sons, and two lesbian dogs. You can find her on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at @TheJenniChiu. Yes, she’s a feminist. It would be weird if she weren’t.
How To Be A Dad
Andy Herald is co-founder of HowToBeADad.com, an entertainment experience for parents, non-parents, or anyone who’s ever had parents really. A heavily-caffeinated designer dad living in sunny Pasadena, California, he’s best known for his humorous Instructional Diagram graphics and memes. When he does attempt to use the written word, it’s more like storytelling with the occasional use of emojis and the frequent use of typos. His goal as a creative is simple: to make people laugh. One digital armpit fart at a time.
Whit Honea is the author of “The Parents’ Phrase Book,” co-founder of Dads4Change.com, and the Social/Community Director for Dad 2.0 Summit. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two kids and too many pets.
Jill Krause is the voice of BabyRabies.com, a blog she started when her baby fever got serious. She’s a digital content creator, photographer, videographer, brand consultant, and public speaker. She holds a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Missouri, and resides outside of Dallas, TX with her husband and 3 young children.
Hear from Jill Krause:
