Rita Arens E-Books


My name is Rita Arens, and this is my blog. I started this blog in 2004 (click on the Archives category title to see all of the archives) shortly after the birth of my daughter.

I'm a contributing editor for BlogHer in the mommy & family category, and I also post product and book reviews at Surrender, Dorothy: Reviews and Cool Mom Picks. Unfortunately, blogging does not pay the bills, so I also work full-time as an editor in corporate America.

Along with 24 amazing contributors, I published an anthology in fall 2008 from Chicago Review Press called Sleep Is for the Weak: The best of the mommybloggers including Amalah, Finslippy, Fussy, Woulda Coulda Shoulda, Mom-101, and more!. I hope there are more books someday.
