Emphatic two word answer: Heck yeah!
I field questions and concerns from mom bloggers all the time who sincerely believe that since they aren’t a part of the first or even second wave of mom bloggers they have no chance of ever reaching the top. And we all know where the top is, even if it means different things to different people, or if some think no top really exists. The top of mom blogging is home to the moms who are constantly in the press, are heavily courted by brands, are consistently referenced in trade articles and on official mom blogging lists, are always invited on press trips, and whose names we all know and recognize.
If you aren’t in that perennial top tier of mom bloggers does that mean you will never get there? No! There is no caste system in blogging. Today, there are so many niches within parenting blogging that what we knew as “the top” of mom blogging two years ago isn’t the same today. There are top memoir mom bloggers, top coupon mom bloggers, top tech mom bloggers, top frugal mom bloggers, and top mom vloggers, for example. The range of top mom bloggers has expanded tremendously and the possibilities for moms who blog (yes, even newbie bloggers) are endless.
Crissy of DearCrissy.com has also been blogging about motherhood for less than a year. She is already nominated for a BlogLuxe award and is a community manager and brand ambassador for a major flooring company. Did being a new mom blogger stop Crissy from creating a beautiful blog, sharing her phenomenal photography and penning wonderful posts. Not at all!
And, finally, think of Alli Worthington, the mastermind being Blissful Media Group including BlissfullyDomestic.com and the Blissdom Conferences. Alli is a baby in blogging years, but her work is so brilliant you’d never know it. Did being a new blogger in the mom space a few years ago stop Alli from creating her first successful mom blogger conference and sites for women? No!
Just by visiting these women’s sites what can you glean from them? They are all:
- smart social media mavens
- keen content creators and
Even if your goal is not to be a top mom blogger you can learn a great deal from these smart women. And, if your dream is to be recognized in your niche or in the whole mom blogging community there is ample opportunity to do so. The door to the top is definitely still wide open!
