The topic of Day 6 of our Daily Q&A challenge is, yes, you guessed right! Mummy bloggers.
A lot can happen in three years…
Let’s start with a short history, shall we?
In the space of three short years after the launch of popular blogging platform WordPress in September 2003, photo-sharing site Flickr launched (February 2004), Merriam-Webster declared “blog” the “Word of the Year” (December 2004) and Anne Marie Nichols became one of the first mummy bloggers to get paid for her blog, A Readable Feast (June 2006).
If you’re not familiar with it, it’s very easy to dismiss mummy blogging as, just something that new mums read but I was humbled to discover the reach of this incredibly expansive and influential medium whilst researching this post.
Mummy blogs have significant reach
Mummy blogs in the UK alone reach over 10 million consumers, and are a vital platform for connecting products and services with every day people interested in everything from fashion, to travel, to banking services.
And it’s not just limited to mums alone, there is a daddy blog network too, with top prominent Daddy blogger, John Adams, current holder of Vuelio’s Best UK Dad Blog Award, regularly recognised for his posts on “parenting, fatherhood, family life, motoring, days out, travel, equalities, men’s style and grooming, travel and a host of other lifestyle subjects”.
Questions for Mummy Bloggers
Regular readers will recognise that we are running a Q&A a day through March to show people how to use the real-time Q&A platform we have developed at assenty.com. We’d love to see the blogging community put it to work, connecting bloggers with their loyal readers, but first, have you got a question for a top mummy blogger?
If you could ask a top mummy blogger, one question, what would it be?
We’ve built an interactive platform for asking and answering questions in real-time at assenty.com. It’s free to vote for and post questions, and incredibly easy to use, simply log in with Twitter, visit the relevant question board and post your question in seconds flat.
