The other day I received a Facebook message from my dear friend Mitch over at GayNYCDad.com. He told me that I had made the Top 50 Mom Blogger’s list. I had no clue what he was talking about. Thankfully he sent me a link. Of course I just had to check it out.
The link took me to the Cision website. Cision helps companies, brands and public relations firms to find the top influencers in different niches to help them to know who to reach out to for work with campaigns and other projects. For a blogger it’s a very big deal.
The list was complied by by Beth Blanchard. She is an editor at Cision.
Mother’s Day is May 11! To celebrate moms everywhere (and assist with last-minute campaigns), Cision has compiled a list of the top 50 U.S. mom bloggers. Defining influence is tricky business no matter how you look at it, so I chose three concrete metrics as the basis for my list: Cision Digital Reach, Twitter followers and inbound links. Using Cision’s media database, I was able to find over 2,000 U.S. contacts covering motherhood or parenting, and from there, I winnowed it down to mom bloggers with data for my established criteria. Finally, I ranked the blogs by each metric and took the average of those ranks to calculate an overall rating. Congrats to the top bloggers!
There are thousands of bloggers in the United States. I am honored to be a part of this incredible list, especially considering the list was narrowed down from 2,000 U.S. bloggers.
Here I am! :-)!
I am thrilled to be a part of this list, especially considering that the list if filled with amazing bloggers that I admire.

Thank you Cision! I am beyond thrilled and incredibly honored to be on your list.
