    Women Bloggers
    How many women bloggers are active here on abestweb?

    "More than one-half (53%) of the US female Internet population of 79 million actively participated in some type of social media at least weekly. "

    I was surprised to see my wife posting threads on parenthood issues every day and then receives more than 20 responses in less than 24 hours! An army of mums creating a huge amount of great content out there, most of it not monetized.

    note to self: put some ads on the wife's blog tonight!

    Ryan, my wife has a really good wordpress blog about all kinds of family stuff, her home crafts, etc. It has been really cool to watch her evolve on the web. And to help her test out and target certain keywords out there that draw huge amounts of traffic. But alas she's a content purest and I can't get her to consider monetizing the traffic, either

    I love to see men just catching on Mommy bloggers are probably the biggest blogging group out there. And they are great for real backlinks if you have something they *want* to talk about. And they can kill you if you do something they don't like!

    Not necessarily great for affiliate marketing... yet... we have to show them they can make money recommending products and services without compromising their ability to be taken seriously.

    My wife has given me the verbal product reviews for everything we have bought our newborn son... I just need to work out how to trick her into posting it!

    Yes, there are a lot of mom bloggers out there...

    But I'm a non-mom with a VERY active set of websites geared towards women.

    When I'm in "business" mode, it's probably not obvious that my own sites are all girlie

    I am a mom, I have multiple blogs, but I do not consider myself to be a typical "mommy blogger" nor do I want to be. Instead, I am a web designer and web publisher who happens to be female and has a variety of niche sites that appeal to various audiences.

    All of my sites are monetized - via a variety of methods depending on what works for each niche - and all of them do make money.

    You are very different from the "mommy bloggers", they aren't in the web business generally. They blog to express themselves. It isn't a slam to be called a mommy blogger, it is a very real demographic with some very powerful bloggers. Nothing wrong with being or NOT being a mommy blogger

    I don't consider myself a mommy blogger but I do own sites where mommy bloggers do their blogging. Some of them do it only for fun. Some of them dabble with a couple of incentivized links in their blogs to make a little extra money each month (like $50-100). I do think it is cool to watch them evolve. And even cooler to see what kind of keywords they get traffic on!

    And my own "mommy" is a blogger with her own pet blogs. Nothing about kids at all...all pets. But she makes a little side money with it as well and has made some friends out out if.

    I am a Mom but not a blogger. I have had several Mommy bloggers do product giveaways on their sites. Most of the time they blog because they enjoy sharing ideas and are not focused on using the site to make money. Most have not been introduced to affiliate marketing.

    I did not mean that being considered a mommy blogger is a bad thing or a slam. They are a very powerful voice. Actually on two of my sites I do write from a mom's perspective.

    I just think it is becoming too common of a term - putting all moms who blog (in any capacity) all into one group and call them mommy bloggers.
