About Jodi

Writer, author, and Mommy Dish blogger who responds, on average, to 7 million kid questions a day.

Jodi Meltzer Darter is a writer, communications guru, and chef wannabe based out of a Boston suburb you’ve never heard of. Before momhood, she was a television reporter who covered everyone from Hillary Clinton to The Goo Goo Dolls. She transitioned to mommy blogger in 2010 — the year her baby boy swallowed her whole. She escapes his and her bonus son’s grip with sarcasm, bold coffee, and 80s music/movie binges with her beloved husband.

Jodi has bylines on The Huffington PostThe Stir, The Mighty, and Scary Mommy, and has penned articles for too many publications to count. Look for her debut children’s book, When You Lived In My Belly, in 2018.
