KJ Dell’Antonia has been named the new writer at the New York Times’ Motherlode blog. She succeeds Lisa Belkin, who left in October and started “Parentlode,” at The Huffington Post — a decision which prompted the Times to sue for trademark infringement.

In a post introducing herself, Dell’Antonia said that most of Motherlode would remain the same, but added that there will be more firsthand reporting, new regular columns and a wider discussion of the news and latest research regarding children.
