So you know so and so, who you didn’t even THINK knew how to turn on a computer, is now blogging. Wait…. is it just me, or does it seem like every mom nowadays has a blog, and well – you are almost right. Well kind of.
I started blogging around 2000 on Blog Spot. I remember it was right before SXSW and thought it would be a fun thing to write about. Then I got pregnant, decided to write a blog dedicated to my daughter and pregnant. That was 2003. Needless to say, I have been in the blogging sphere for a while. While yes, the number of blogs have rapidly increase, it definitely feels like there has been a huge rise in moms blogs.
How Many Moms Are Blogging?
So moms that blog, or mommy bloggers, whatever you want to call us – there are a lot.
Check out these crazy stats from eMarketer:
Yep, you read that right. In 2010 there is 3.9 MILLION mom who are blogging. These are moms with kids under the age of 18 who write on any subject, and blog at least monthly.It’s predicted that in 2014, the number of mom bloggers will rise to 4.4 million. eMarketer is guesstimating that a million moms a year will start a blog.
You guys, this blogging thing that I started as a hobby, is legit.
