Miss Blographer - Master of Ceremony
Jill Krause Blogger, Clickin Moms Blog Relations Coordinator
Jill authors BabyRabies.com, a blog where she talks about ALL the facets of life as a Mom of two. She's been blogging since before she got pregnant, back when her baby fever escalated into something more serious: Baby Rabies.
Since it took over her life, she's given herself permission to change every day. Formerly a Type-A, career-driven perfectionist, Jill basks in the beauty of being honest about the realities of motherhood and trying to embrace chaos. She got her first "fancy" camera in 2010 before her second baby was born and she's since worked her tail off to capture perfectly imperfect moments of the life she never imagined she'd live.
