Sad news, MomInDCity readers… I did not make the Top 10 Mommy Blogger list this year. (I’ll give you all a moment to wipe your tears.)
Since I just started blogging a couple of weeks ago, I’m handling the rejection pretty well, but I thought I’d at least get an honorable mention! I’d like to think that the folks at Babble.com who came up with the list won’t make the same mistake next year.
Online tax service H&R Block commissioned an infographic on mom bloggers, showcasing that Top 10 list along with some fascinating stats about bloggers who happen to be moms. First of all, there are almost 4 million of us in North America. That’s a crazy-lot, don’t you think?! Also, Salt Lake City has the highest percentage of mom bloggers; DC is tied with San Francisco for 5th place.
Before I make campaign posters to help ensure my spot on next year’s list, let’s go over some important reasons why I should be included:
1. I’m a mom.
2. I blog.
3. You can call me whatever you want. (A lot of moms who blog don’t want to be called “mommy bloggers” because they blog about a lot more than being a mommy. I will accept the “mommy blogger” title with pride– trust me, I’ve been called a lot worse.)
4. I’ll maintain the integrity of the crown as an “online icon for style, wit and honesty” (I also believe in world peace).
5. I’m pretty sure that’s my cartoon likeness at the top of the infographic. If I’m included on next year’s list, I won’t sue for using my image without written consent.
Here’s a look at the infographic and the impressive Top 10 list. I suppose these women’s blogs may be slightly more influential than mine. See for yourself and tell me who’s on your list of favorite bloggers.
