CoolMom.com is one of the 10 most influential mom blogs in the country, and the woman behind it is Daphne Brogdon. She blogs about being a parent, and in addition to maintaining her blog, she’s also a stand up comic and television host on the TV Guide Channel—talk about a busy schedule! But it’s the blogging gig that keeps this mother of two young children close to home, where she can dish out advice to fellow moms over the web. One of her latest tips is to consider starting a college fund for your children, and she’s partnered with UPromise, MasterCard and Bank of America to promote a new credit card where one percent of your purchases go into a college savings account with no cap. Check out CoolMom.com for more from Daphne, including her blog and daily videos.
What makes me a lady: I try to always write thank you notes and never show up empty handed. I also don’t call after 8 PM.
Favorite guilty pleasure: Reading tabloid magazines at the nail salon.
Three things on my life list: 1. Have beautiful babies (did that). 2. Take more time to travel. 3. Ride in a hot air balloon.
If I could have a superpower, it would be: To make gobs of money and to always be able to make people laugh.
Ladies I admire: Hillary Clinton, my mother, and all the mothers out there who soldier on, always doing their best.
