The other day I came across this infographic and as a mother & blogger, it got me to thinking. The '2013' mom is truly a modern mother. She's talented, educated, empowered and entrepreneurial. She raises children, writes a blog, tends to her home & spouse and sometimes does it while working a full-time job or perhaps running her own business. The modern mother AND female blogger, is a multi-talented & multi-faceted woman. This infographic shows just how much the modern day woman, mother & blogger is on the rise.
ONLY 500 are really well known. That's less than 1%! The next thing that struck a chord with me was the average annual income of a mom blogger is $84,000! For REALS?!? At less than 1% of the entire "mom blog community", that's a very WIDE opening for mothers out there looking to transform their blog from hobby to career.
If you read over each of the Top 10 Mom Bloggers, you'll find a few things in common (besides being a mom):
- They are educated. Some having post-graduate degrees.
- They're not only successful online, but offline. They each have a cause they're passionate about.
- They're writers! They write about their life, their passions, their beliefs... they speak up!
- They're not afraid to be vulnerable because they are faithful.
The more I researched each of these women, I thought what a great idea it would be to come up with a list of MY Top 10 Mom Blogs. Mothers I see in the blogging community who are: a) successful online & offline, (b) women who are the authors' of their life's journey, and c) women who are faithful, Christlike and nurturing.ediTORIal

Whether you're currently a mom, or are in the planning stages of having children, there is something to be said for the Modern Mother. My Top 10 List are full of women I admire, who began their journey at the Start line just like the rest of us. They are women who put their faith in God and are now reaping His benefits. And if you're not a mom yet, I highly recommend reading each of My Top 10 Mom Blogs because they're just plain amazing!
