The Rise of the Mommy Blogger

No, it’s not some horrifying B-Movie from the 50s, though that’s not a bad idea… Mashable just posted a really neat infographic on Modern Mothers. There’s some really staggering facts in there such as the average age of a mommy blogger (37), total number of mommy bloggers in North America (3.9 million), and that over 50% have completed a college or post-graduate education.

I would’ve loved to see some additional stats on there like:

  • How many of them are on Twitter? Facebook?
  • What’s the average blog-income a Mommy Blogger pulls in annually?
  • What blog platforms do they prefer most?
  • Average number of posts per week from each blogger, and then overall?

I’m also curious where the minority group, the Daddy Bloggers, fit in. Clearly a tremendously smaller portion of bloggers fit in this category, but it’d be neat to see an infographic looking at that sector.

Here’s the full graphic from Mashable:

    I love the graphic! I have been blown away by the blogs I have found in my short time as a mom blogger. I also did not think that I would ever be a part of the 3.9 million mom bloggers!!! I only got an email address last year when my kids schools went paperless, now, watch out!! Lol! Great to find your site. Happily following you. Love the name of your blog!

      Hey, Kathy! Pretty astonishing right? But I’m even more shocked that you never even had an email address until last year??!?!? I can’t tell you how many different addresses I’ve had over the years. Though that’s awesome your kids’ schools are paperless. Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comments!

    Man how awesome would it be to be in that top 10. Interesting about the average age. I would love to know how many work from home or also keep a full time job out of the home. Love the fact about education. I think some people believe Mommy Bloggers are uneducated stay at home wives with no brain.

      Yeah, that’s impressive, right? I’ll admit that I was a little shocked to see that over 50% had completed a college education.
