    Wow, this is really interesting… I knew mom blogging was big, but not this big. The real interesting thing will be to see how many of this blogs last at least a year. Most people give up on blogging within the first 3 months…

    After giving birth to my son Noah at 28 weeks, I wanted to start a blog to compare my son's progress and development with that of other babies, especially preemies.

    Found your site looking for this exact data so thanks for sharing :) Makes me wonder what the world wide total is as I believe it’s HUGE. For example I’m in the US but I get tons of traffic & twitter followers from Canada and Australia and they are ALSO Mommy bloggers. So on the one hand 3.2M is an amazing number. But I’m guessing that worldwide it’s easily double that. Of course I have no data, just entirely making that up 😉

    Not really a “mommy” blogger in the traditional sense…

    Also slightly a geek and will be reading more on your blog :)

    Had an idea for a post that involves stating how many mommy bloggers there are in the world. That many huh? Had a little chuckle about me thinking I was so terribly brilliant to come up with the idea. Like 4 months ago.

    That is AWESOME …. I started in 2008 and so happy to see it come so far. I love blogging, not only the therapy of writing and being able to support my three kids with it, but the community we all have has mom bloggers. We all truly support each other in so many ways.

    this data is only for the USA correct?  There are many many more of us worldwide (I’m in Canada) Still, I had no idea there were THAT many bloggers!  Good news as myself and a couple blogging friends have just launched a new forum for ‘bloggy chat’ at  Would love you to join and check it out!

    I’m a mom blogger of a teenager. I haven’t found many others, but I also haven’t visited 3.9 million blogs. I know I’m just one mom in the abyss, but you can check me out at I’m also a product reviewer, make money, save money kinda gal. In other words, I’m all about deals and passive ways to make income outside of my full-time work outside of the home job!

    Hi! I’m a fellow mommy blogger! I created my blog as a resource website for new moms who are looking to ‘pick the brain’ of another mom with experience in caring for a baby. I share helpful tidbits, recommend useful baby products and provide information/news in regard
    to baby care, baby safety and baby related products. In addition, each month I post an article about issues related to being a mom and ideas I find interesting or helpful.
