10 Things I ll Really Miss About Mommyish vintage woman at tyoewriter jpgDear lovely Mommyish readers,

After founding Mommyish in 2011 and 2.5 years at the helm as editor, I’ll be leaving. It has been of the utmost pleasure fostering this lively community and seeing our little corner of the web flourish through your varied opinions, contributions, and submissions. If you’ve been here for awhile, then you know better than anyone else that it’s the readership that makes Mommyish a very different place from other parenting communities. I’ve always been impressed by the unique palate of our readers and their willingness to explore taboos of motherhood with both thoughtfulness and humor.

While our writers and editors have constantly strived to be candid in their parenting narratives, it’s you who have truly kept this conversation honest.

You’re an awesomely brazen group who have consistently kept me on my toes and I’ll miss you and all of the staff dearly. Feel free to visit me in the Twittersphere and The Gram.

I’d wish you all luck on your parenting quest, but honestly, I doubt you’ll need it.

Love,

Koa Beck

Editor in Chief
