Lately I have come across some really good blogs. With really good themes, and really topics. Its funny but for three years I did not know what to blog about, or where to start blogging. Yet since I have started to connect with like minded bloggers I have found Moms Blogging on topics that I can so relate to! The topics are so what I love, what I talk about, and what I could easily blog about. So why did I never think to set up a blog about my family?
There is a huge influence happening across Australia and America. Its where big bloggers (who have a HUGE following) are getting rewarded by the big brands for their blogs. Its not the business blogs, or the Internet Marketing blogs who are in the lime light – its the every day blogs that are taking over. Moms Blogging about their life, their day to day living, their children, what they are doing, and who they are connecting with – they are the big time blogs. I have even heard of one blogger who was asked by a car dealership to drive a brand new car, as long as she blogged about it and did a vlog while driving in and around Sydney.
The Big Companies Are Taking Notice
The bigger brand companies are taking notice of the Moms Blogging sites and are connecting with them. If only I had started blogging about “Raising Five Boys and Trying To Stay Sane” back when I started wondering what to blog about…..wonder which big brand company would have been interested in my Mommy Blog? I am so lucky that with my blogs that I do have a good sized following, a great community of bloggers where we connect online and even do group writing projects together. They are almost like my second family, my friends and my lifeline when I need it!
What Type Of Mommy Blogs Do I Follow?
Moms Blogging is now so popular. I have found so many blogs that are written from Moms. Every day I connect with another one. There are a few favorites, who I go and check on regularly. The Moms that write from the heart, who share their family life and who are generous enough to connect back with our blogs. They are my favorite – here is a short list of the ones that I do follow (I am so sorry I could not include everyone…if I did the list would never end!)
Mothers Love Letters – http://mothersloveletters.com/
The three li’l Princesses – http://threelilprincesses.com/

Like I said – if I included all the Mommy Blogs that I read the list would go on and on! If I added the list of Travelling Blogs that I read I would have over 100 blogs here! Maybe one day I will have to share the list of all the blogs I do follow…but then that list would be massive
Why Follow Moms Blogging Sites?
Why do I follow so many Moms Blogging Sites? Well its like this – I am a Mum to five boys, and I am learning in so many ways how to be a parent to our boys. What better way to connect with many others Mothers that are online, and going through the same thing that I am going through? Parenting is not always easy – there are decisions that need to be made when certain circumstances arise and asking for advice or any hints/tips means that I can have access to many different ideas. I also like to know that I can connect with anyone, anytime, anywhere! Like I said – its almost like a second community of like minded people out there waiting to support our family, and we can support them.
