Being a Mom is the best blessing in the world, and at times Moms don’t think so, but it is. Years ago Mommy Blogs were of the type where Moms posted family pictures, shared recipes, did journaling about the family’s day, or family trips etc., but in recent years Mommy Blogs have gained respect, prestige and influence as well as provide an income for the Mom Blogger. Motherhood is challenging and a support system is a must, especially for new mothers. Have you ever heard the phrase, “There’s strength in numbers?” Mommy Blogs provide strength to Moms all over the world. How? Let’s take a look at the value added things that Mom Blogs provide to Moms all over the world. Value added things that give a sense of direction and a sense of calm along with a sense of “Yes, I’m doing things right as a Mom” feeling. Here is a short list of reasons why Moms will benefit from reading Mommy Blogs along with a list of 100 Mommy Bloggers.


Reading Mommy Blogs offers the following benefits:


1. To connect with other Moms. Here’s a real good example. Suppose you’re married and live overseas with your husband and kids. You’re away from your and his family and your support system is nil. Yes, phone calls home are great, but expensive. You or your family back home do not have webcams so you may see and talk to one another, so you begin to reach out and you find other Moms online, and maybe some in your area – that’s great. You begin to build an overseas connection because there are international Mom Bloggers. Mom Bloggers will sometimes answer comments on their pages, and some will e-mail you back, if possible. If the Mom Blogger’s readership is HUGE then it might be a little difficult for them to return an e-mail. Connecting with other Moms is fun and productive for you and for your family. You may bring something new into your home based on the thoughts, challenges, and experiences of other Moms. You can also provide sound advice to other Moms. You may strike up some lasting friendships as well.

2. Parenting advice – boy, is this necessary, especially for young mothers. Parenting advice will come in different forms such as articles, podcasts, and interviews with other Moms and other parenting experts, in the form of books and/or newsletters. Subscribe to parenting advice columns and newsletters. Moms will share advice through success stories, family challenges, and maybe you’ll be able to submit your own stories which will encourage other Moms.

3. Product reviews – now this will save you money from buying junk. Mommy Blogs are consumer advocates and expound on kid’s movies, adult’s movies, toys, books, clothing, strollers, high chairs, kitchen and bath, items for teenagers, etc. Some Mommy Bloggers specifically blog on certain products like technology products, kids toys, and books.

4. Coupons for products and services are at abundance on Mommy Blogs. A lot of retailers advertise on Mommy Blogs because of the large readership these Bloggers have. Some Mommy Blogs have 2 to 3 million visitors a month or more.

5. Fabulous bulk recipes are on Mommy Blog websites. Why was the word “bulk” emphasized here? Because most Moms cook in bulk. If you’re a frugal Mom you’ll look for these types of recipes which state how many people the recipe serves, and how many ingredients make up the recipe.



6. Mommy Blogs have some of the best giveaways and contests and they don’t cost Mom one dime to participate. You could win anything from soup to nuts, well, how about books, toys, iPads, phones and other electronics, educational items, strollers, clothing – you name it.

7. There is job information for WAHM (Work-at-home Moms). Moms that are working from home from legitimate sources share these sources with other stay-at-home Moms. Check out Hire My Mom and Home-based Working Moms.

8. Mommy Blogs offer free webinars given by parenting experts, health professionals, teachers, college professors, financial gurus and more. These webinars are wonderful teaching and sharing resources for Moms. Webinars occur any time of the day or night and feature organizing ideas, to child autism, to couponing, to family scheduling.

9. Fun family videos are featured on Mommy Blogs. It’s good to see how other Moms cope with the “craziness” and a lot of times, funny things that happen on the homestead.

10. If you’re a Mom who has a business, a product or service, Mommy Blogs are an excellent way to market your business. Some Mommy Blogs offer advertising discounts to other Moms who have businesses. Mommy Blogs are great product marketing avenues. If you’re a Mom with a business and you want to advertise on Mommy Blogs find the ones who accept ads and who have large readerships.

Mommy Bloggers have a club. Watch the video to the right to find out what it's all about.

You can find over 16,000 Mommy Bloggers - Moms' Blogger Club. Here you’ll find specific Mommy Blogger groups like Tech Moms, Moms Reviewers, Moms of Arts & Crafts, Moms raising girls, Moms raising boys, Moms with autistic children, Moms of special needs children, Mom caring for elderly parents, Moms caring for disabled veterans etc.

      Hi teaches12345, I agree with you that connecting with other Moms and sharing information helps us raise our children. I read certain Mommy Blogs and especially enjoy MommytoMommy.tv. Thanks for reading.

      There certainly are a great number of helpful mommy blogs out there. I can remember when the information for moms was almost nonexistant. It is wonderful how in today's world we can connect with each other to share information. This is all so important in raising children. Voted up.
