Bloggermoms is a daily website that celebrates multicultural perspectives on motherhood.Launched in 2008, Bloggermoms showcases perspectives, experiences, talents and wisdom of moms from around the world. This online community shares a common commitment of holding heritage near, while exchanging,
learning and raising children with an open mind and an open heart to the world.
Founder and editor Tiyash balances multiple cultures and traditions with her husband and two young boys. Tiyash brings just one perspective of an Indian mom living in America. Raised in Kolkata and Delhi, India, she moved to New York in 2000, and then to Atlanta in 2002. She’s an engineer and management consultant by training—and a mom and writer at heart.
Founder Priya Nair juggles many roles as a realtor, blogger, enterpreneur, data base engineer along with being an active participant in her community. She moved to Atlanta from India in 2000 and is a busy mom of two.
Bloggermoms has been mentioned in American Baby, Marie Claire and India Today. Plus, Bloggermoms stories have been featured on Discovery/TreeHuggers and on Wikipedia. Tiyash is also a contributor to Mail Today, writing about education and business for the ‘new’ Indian coming to the United States.

CHANDANA / NEW YORK
Originally from Kolkata, Chandana lives in Long Island with her computer-genius husband and toddler son.

She shares her life as a juggling young wife and mama in the Northeast.
Originally from Alabama, USA, Tacy lives in the UK with her with her husband, Jim, and their two children, Ayda and Rafe. She has had a personal interest in health & nutrition since losing her father to heart disease. Tacy lived in the world of high finance, but after having her second child, she decided to pursue her passion in the wellness industry – and to work on her own terms to be home for her kids – by becoming a wellness & nutrition advisor. Her passion for helping others achieve their health & fitness goals while maintaining family balance is a dream realized.
Originally from Michigan, Sarah Thomssen is a wellness and nutrition expert based in Seattle with clients in three countries, and an aspiring mother. Stay tuned for developments! Sarah began studying all aspects of health after her mother died of colon cancer in 1994.
