2012 has been a great year for mom blogging! From my vantage point I have seen moms travel across the country and around the world. I have seen moms get book deals and share their happiness when they instagram their books. I have seen moms start quality, new conferences and garner spokesperson jobs and work closely with brands during some of the country's biggest events. I have also seen moms serve as experts on national TV and get named to coveted blogging awards.
The trend lines are the same as previous years. More and more mom bloggers are drawing in brand and media opportunities through the quality work they produce on their blogs. I have heard time and time again from women who aren't bloggers that blogging is a powerful movement; one that affords moms the opportunity to create a bustling business for themselves. It is empowering for women, to be sure.
Every day I see on Twitter and in my Facebook stream the amazing opportunities that mom bloggers celebrate from landing a new brand advocate job to negotiating a lucrative advertising campaign. There are far too many examples to list. It's wonderful to see and I don't see the opportunities waning anytime soon.
How has blogging treated you this year? What has been your biggest achievement of 2012?
This year started out with some disappointment and guilt. I got to the point where I couldn't do my job any more due to chronic back pain. After I got laid off, I started blogging full time to keep me distracted. This year I took my breast pump site, which was strictly about breastfeeding. It wasn't converting and decided to expand my niche so that I wasn't limited. In Sept, I came up with Uplifting Families. I started my breast pump site in Nov 2011, it was my first blog experience and wasn't sure if I could end up a successful writer/blogger. I launched Uplifting Families in October of this year and my blog has grown rapidly. I have worked long hours networking and building a following. I hope to continue blogging and growing my site to help other parents and mom's with real problems.
