Momo Fali

I am the BlogHer Social Media Manager and a mostly stressed-out, insomniac mom of two kids. I have a 14 year old daughter, an 11 year old son with special-needs, a sports-fanatic husband, one awesome dog, and I have blogged since 2007 at Momo Fali where I desperately seek an audience who feels my pain

If you have a question about BlogHer you can email me at momo@blogher.com for help with any portion of the site, Publishing Network, events, or anything BlogHer related! I'm always happy to help.
