Update August, 2008: If you want to see the world’s most complete collection of mommy blogs, go to Moms.alltop.


While poking around the BlogHer site, I found what must be the definitive list of blogs for moms. I provide it below. If you know a mom, please forward this list to her. I’m pretty sure she’ll find something of interest. Here is the permalink:

Dooce Heather’s clever writing and gorgeous photos charm and surprise readers. In addition to SAHMs, writers, creative types and techies alike can’t get by without a daily Dooce fix.

    Well done to all the mommy bloggers. I recognise quite a few in the amazing list above. Every one of our members gets a blog and most of them have never heard of blogs before… yet once they start blogging they love the experience… here come a lot more new mommy (and daddy) bloggers. Watch out world!

    The Ultimate Mommy Blog List

    Here’s something for the moms out there. Kawasaki has collected what he thinks is the ultimate list of mommy blogs.

  6. Mom101 July 12, 2006 at 5:47 am - Reply

    As one of the so-called mommybloggers fortunate enough to be mentioned above, I want to clarify that this is a list of bloggers affiliated with the BlogHer ad network. While the list is indeed impressive, there are plenty more great bloggers out there. The great blogging goddesss Dooce got snatched up by Federated Media, along with Amalah (another must-read) which is the only reason you don’t see them above. We all bow at their virtual altars.

    Okay, I added Amalah, Dooce, and White Trash. Didn’t add the pithy descriptions and graphic for them, though. I don’t know the blogs well enough to write the pithiness, and I don’t have the time right now to grab the graphics. Going ice skating…

    Blogs and the life of Moms are perfect for each other. You can almost hear these talented and humorous ladies weaving the fabric of their families’ lives in their blogs. Moms are the glue that keeps families together and it’s great to see these talented bloggers get some great recognition. Thanks for this list, I will forward it to all the Moms I know.

    Although it’s not necessary in my book to defend the promotion of women bloggers, I would offer this to the dissenters.

    Mommy Bloggers Strike Back

    Guy Kawasaki, popular biz blogger (among other things), posted a list of mommy bloggers who blog as way to vent or rave about the experience of motherhood. Blogging also gives editorially bent moms an outlet for keeping their writing skills

    Hey Guy,
    Our worlds collided when we saw your great Mommy blogger post last week! We have sponsored many of the mommy blogs in your list in the past and owe them a lot for helping us get out the word for our popular “GoodFather” line of daddy gifts.
    Let us know when you begin putting together the Daddy blogger list because we have a nice primer started for you.

    Thanks so much to Mom101 for adding in the Moms who decided to go with Federated. Several of us at BlogHer regretting turning down the chance to work with them, but never the chance to rock out with them in the Mommyblogging world. They are incredible women and incredible writers! Just goes to show this Mommyblogging thing is probably here to stay, huh!

    When I first saw this list, I thought to myself, “I really need to thank Guy in person when I see him at BlogHer.” When I went to BlogHer, I kept noticing this man with a camera who looked vaguely familiar, but just figured, “Hmm. I must read his blog occasionally, or something.”
    Karen<--dork So, Guy, thanks so much for this great list. I'm a complete idiot for not realizing who you were until I got on my plane to come home -- otherwise I would've made sure to shake your hand. Perhaps at BlogHer '07, then? K. ************************ Karen, BlogHer 07 then. Don't worry that you didn't place who I am. We Asians all look alike. 🙂 Guy

    where do you ice skate? figure, hockey or speed?
    we skate at san jose + oakland ice + we used to skate at berkeley iceland, but it closed last month. i met my husband at fashion island ice chalet rink in redwood city.
    anyway, that is a great list. i missed blogher last year because i was in breast cancer chemotherapy, + i don’t have any ads on my blog so you wouldn’t find my blog on blogher.
    i enjoyed your recent post about a psychology professor at stanford’s book. my daughter attends bing nursery school + is a subject for some of her tests.
    can you please mention on your blog that i’m having a mother’s day blogroll for any mom’s with a blog or site?

    OK – I have to reply to Clay at Minti, that I just started an account and really like your interface. It is very easy to start participating in the community. Who doesn’t have something unique to share about their kids and family?

    Hi there! It’s great to read such a comprehensive “mommy blog” listing on your site(and quite unexpected!). I’ve seen a few of those listed here already, though there are loads more to feast upon 😉
    I’m still finding my feet as a mommy blogger (though I’ve blogged extensively on other subjects), but if you have the time to check out my site it will be much appreciated! Here in the UK, it seems that blogging hasn’t quite taken off as much as in other countries yet; many people I have spoken to don’t even know what a blog is! (Even my sister, who’s a bit of a net savvy). Great post, thanks for the info 🙂

    Though I’ve blogged extensively for over two years now, I’m a relative savvy to the mommy blogger community! It was actually only a few weeks ago that i read my first “Mommy Blog” and thought: hey, this is what I really want to do. I certainly didn’t…

    “While the list is indeed impressive, there are plenty more great bloggers out there. ”
    Mom-101 is exactly right, there are even more really great bloggers out there. If you would like to check out my blogroll there are some really great ones there (link is in my name) plus make sure you include Kristie from Slacker-Moms-R-Us.blogspot.com She’s a doll!
    I’d offer my site up but I don’t think I quite fit the “mommyblogger” criteria. LOL. I’m too blunt and foul-mouthed BUT I adore many of the women on your list.

    This list is way too cool! I have been actively blogging for more than 6 months. It started as DIY therapy for my SAD(Season Affective Disorder), I come from the tropics and winter is harsh on me. Away from everything that was familiar to me, I started manifesting symptoms of depression. Having been in the workforce earning my own money then becoming a SAHM did confuse me about my identity and purpose on this world. Blogging has helped me so much finding myself again.

    Hi,
    I know this list is a bit old, but it’s still a great resource to find some great content.
    I just love discovering simple solutions to everyday problems. In particular, I search for creative and inexpensive tricks to make my life a little easier and my kids a little more responsible. I created my MeckMom.com blog to help share a few of my favorites with other busy Moms around the world. It’s a work in progress, but I hope you enjoy it.
