A Mom Blog Social Network
After Heather Armstrong, made her debut as the first mom blogger, websites and blogs created by moms began appearing from different parts of the world. Moms began writing to vent personal feelings, including those of frustration, loneliness, and sometimes even depression. Moms saw the relief and moments of peace when they can sit down with their thoughts and detail the events of their life to a possible world of readers who they may never meet, but would be interested in what they have to say.
The Feminine Mystique, written by Betty Friedan, was about the unhappiness of women during the 1950s through the 1960s. She describes the details of the sad life of women, despite being in a family with a loving husband, children, and comfortable surroundings. College women sought to go to college, not necessarily to receive an education or learn, but to meet their husbands. Then once they have accomplished their goal, what next? These were often questions that lingered, but had no solutions that solved the mystery of the great depression in the households.
Almost 50 years later, the "problem that has no name" as Friedan describes, still takes place, but in moderation. As mom bloggers rise, their need to spend time with their thoughts and the information that will be published, has done well to keep their focus away from disturbing family drama.
In addition, the health situations that were once contributed by depression have slowly decreased. Moms have more to talk about with their daily finds of interesting blogs and newly formed friendships as well as more of a desire to get through life. The moms are finding that they aren't alone with whatever troubles them. Their writing and expression of personal thoughts have drawn like minded moms together, giving them a sense of relief.
After mom bloggers grew and their readership rose, marketers began to see their pages as opportunities. Mom bloggers were receiving tremendous amounts of online traffic, along with groups of loyal followers and unique visitors. Many websites struggled to gain the type of traffic these mom blogs had. In time, product reviews multiplied, giveaways increased to promote products, and opportunities for mom bloggers rose.
As we move into 2012 and mom blogs grow into the millions, an overwhelming cluster of information written by moms surrounds the internet. Even with such communities as Blogher.com, voiceBoks.com and mombloggersclub.com, moms are beginning to spread themselves too thin, with countless hours in front of the internet, trying to expand their readership and online exposure. Moms spend a significant amount of time building their social media exposure, recreating and fixing their websites to fit the latest styles and widgets onto their platforms, and finding other ways to build the readership they desire.
As moms spend their waking moments with their blogging activities, their times with their family also lack the attention. And as readership improves, so does the desire and sometimes obsession to keep going, hoping for that moment when someone will eventually make them a great offer. Whether they are noticed to do product reviews, write articles, or even appear on television, the majority of these mom bloggers are determined to be that lucky individual.
