About Me

Hey Mama! Welcome to my blog. I really appreciate the time that you have taken to visit and click through.

My name is Thando and I’m the mom and blogger behind Modern Zulu Mom.

I’m a Human Resources professional by day, blogger by night and a mom and wife 24/7.  I have a 10-year-old son, a 3-year-old daughter and a baby boy who is a few weeks old. We live in Johannesburg, South Africa.

I started this blog in 2015, with the intention of engaging and connecting modern mothers in real, meaningful conversations about our children, our cultures and all things parenting.

I have published an eBook to help other content creators start and run their very own successful blogs. Drop me an email if you would like to place an order!

I’m very proud to have won the “Best Parenting Blog 2017” award in the South African Mommy Blogger Awards as well as the runner up for “Best Parenting Blog 2018“.

I’m passionate about family, connecting with others and expressing myself creatively through writing.

I would love to connect with you on Instagram, YouTube or Facebook!
