Michelle Slatalla is an American journalist. The editor in chief of the blog Gardenista, she was previously a reporter for Newsday[1] and a columnist for The New York Times,[2][3] and "TIME magazine." [4] One of the first columnists at The New York Times to write weekly about parenting and child rearing, she made her family the subject of much of her work, an approach that in the mid-2000s prompted criticism from a younger generation of bloggers at Gawker[5][6]. She is also the author or co-author of several books, and in 2012 became a blogger herself as editor-in-chief of a lifestyle blog called Gardenista.[7]

Slatalla launched Gardenista as an offshoot of the popular remodeling blog Remodelista ten years after meeting Remodelista founding editor Julie Carlson through a mutual friend.[8]. "TIME magazine named Gardenista to its list of the year's 25 Best Blogs in 2012.[1]

Her husband is Joshua Quittner.[1]
