Kimchi Mamas are featured in The Korea Times - a newspaper for Koreans living in America! The whole thing was printed in Korean so I translated it for you below. Two awesome Kimchi Mamas, Julie and Stefania are pictured and some others are mentioned. Yay! I'm not a professional translator or anything but I'm pretty sure it'll be better than Google Translate.
"Ajumma Power" Lets Korea Be Known
Online consortium of Korean Women, Kimchi Mamas Power Bloggers

There is a power blog featuring Korean culture and food. An online consortium of Korean women bloggers who raise Korean American kids voice their opinions on Kimchi Mamas. The most active Kimchi Mama among them is Julie Kang of Geisha School Dropout.
Self described as a Kimchi Mama with a valley girl accent, Ms. Kang was born in Korea and immigrated to Southern California with her family at the age of six. She emerged as a power blogger, initially blogging about the daily routine working as a database programmer while raising two kids. Frankly expressing her opinions about LA Times or New York Times articles of interest to Koreans, she has proven her popularity with her post about single moms related to a 2009 New York Times article.
Ms. Kang's posts get dozens of comments regularly. It became an online place to discuss current events and people in the news. Additionally, the recent connection to Facebook has revived Kimchi Mams, which had a period of low activity for a little while.
Kimchi Mamas was named as a top 50 mommy blog by Babble, a parenting magazine. Kimchi Mamas was created in 2006 by six popular bloggers living in diverse locations in America including Nina Moon in LA, Eliaday in Boston, Linda in Seattle, and Stefania Pomponi Butler in Silicon Valley, famous for her blog "Citymama," as a place to talk about different parenting styles and share their local experiences with each other.
As time passed and as bloggers who had their own individual blogs linked to and volunteered to contribute to Kimchi Mamas, Korean ajummas scattered all over America, Korea, and even all over the world have started to gather.
