Momo Fali

I am the BlogHer Social Media Manager and a mostly stressed-out, insomniac mom of two kids. I have a 16 year old daughter, a 13 year old son with special-needs 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 for help with any portion of the site, Publishing Network, events, or anything BlogHer related! I'm always happy to help.

Goodbye, BlogHer

Hoo boy. This is going to hurt. I honestly don’t know where to begin, because I never thought I’d be saying it ....more

A Letter to the Typical Parents on the First Day of School

Dear Typical Parent, Hi there! I saw you this morning at the bus stop, taking pictures of your kids in their new clothes with shiny backpacks and haircuts. My son was the little guy with a hole in the back of his shirt where he ripped out the label because he couldn’t stand the feel of it against his skin ....more

How to Be Happy

Be happy. That sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? It’s not ....more

Life List 31-40 And a Reevaluation

Almost five years ago, I started a Life List on this site. FIVE YEARS, people. That’s practically a lifetime in itself ....more


Every single day I think about writing, but there are a lot of things I can’t share right now; things that are too painful, too wonderful, too much of one extreme or another which affect not only me, but people I love. It’s been almost a year since my life was turned upside down, but there are still a lot of things left undone. A few days ago I went out and bought an old-fashioned, spiral notebook and some pens so I can write again ....more

May’s a Jerk and Steak is Life

I have no explanation for my absence other than the fact that May is kind of a jerk. It rolled in with me crossing a half marathon off my life-list on a beautiful morning, then the sun appeared and flowers bloomed, there were weekend getaways, fresh air, laughter, and friends started coming out of their homes like spring-struck zombies carrying grilled hamburgers and coolers of beer. See? ...more

Cracking up and Unbreakable

There is something I need. I need it as much as water, air, food, clothing, shelter, coffee and beer. If I am to be a functioning member of society, I need laughter ....more

Tips from Momo: To All the Single Ladies

It’s not like me to brag (oh, who am I kidding), but over the past eight months I’ve learned a lot about myself and I’ve learned a lot of things that may benefit you too. I’m here to share the knowledge I’ve gleaned from this broken life of mine in case you suddenly find yourself in a crumpled heap in the middle of a grocery store aisle. Hypothetically ....more

Neon Light

For months, in a tiny space where my children didn’t fill my heart, there was aching darkness. Even though it didn’t need much room to exist, the hole felt gaping, like a giant, black pit. You could’ve thrown a Chevy in there and it wouldn’t have touched either side ....more

Seize the Radish

When I was young my mom used to tell me to taste every kind of food I was offered; if I didn’t like it I would never have to eat it again. It turned out that that only thing I didn’t like were radishes. For nearly four decades I ate everything but radishes, because radishes tasted like dirt ....more
