I, very recently, have become aware of the fact that there are lots and lots (and lots) of mommy bloggers out there in cyberspace. I can hardly believe how many moms are blogging these days! There are moms writing about their kids' busy lives, doing product reviews, discussing their walk with God, balancing work & family, and blogging on so many other topics, it's quite amazing and a bit overwhelming, really. It would seem that moms are a force to be reckoned with in the marketing, advertising and social-media driven world of today. Online moms are a real and large presence. And those that blog carry a special power...
Starting to feel a bit left out, I decided to do some research to see if my blogging talents (if indeed I even have any) could be put to use in more arenas than just at The Clean Bedroom posting about organic mattresses and bedding. I really wanted to get some info on who is out there, what they're saying, what their "angle" is, etc. And, wow, I dug up some great information that really gave me some great insight into who Mommy Bloggers are.
The most interesting read chronicles the Top 10 Misconceptions About Mommy Bloggers and really provides valuable insight into this whole genre of bloggers: http://mashable.com/2009/01/16/mom-blogger-misconceptions/?cp=2
I came across a great easy-to-navigate mommy blogger resource - blog catalog. And decided that perhaps a great place for me to start my journey would be the Mom Blogger's Club (be on the lookout for that).
Lots of new things to learn but with all this stuff swirling around in my head to share, I've just got to find an outlet! How about you? Are you a potential mommy blogger? If so, dig in...do your research...live your passion...and write! Mommy bloggers unite! We can be an unstoppable force in the world of marketing & social media.
