Powerful Moms in Social Media (Part 3 of 5)

Ciaran Blumenfeld 

Working Mother has put together a list of fifteen women who can be called the "most powerful" mommy bloggers in social media to date. Previously we showcased the first and second set of mothers.  This third showcase continues to honor mothers.  Their voices are being heard across multiple social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and their own personal blog pages. In addition to all being powerful-influencers reaching large audiences of regular people as well as big companies, these women all have another thing in common- they all have at least one child under the age of eighteen.

The list continues with mommy blogger number seven, Ciaran Blumenfeld. This social media powerhouse has racked up over 51,000 followers on Twitter, in addition to starting, a social networking site dedicated to mom-friendly blog posts and other content. Her blog and other ventures into the social media world inspired her to take her ideas further, leading to the creation of her children's clothing line, Francie Pants.  Blumenfeld has her hard work and dedication to thank for her climb up the mommy blogger ladder, but also her four children. She says the "boom of blogging and birth of social networking was well timed with the arrival of my four kids. As a work at home mom, it was a pleasure to connect with other in similar situations. Sharing my knowledge and experiences with other parents has been a fabulous adventure."

Brooke Burke
The next most powerful mom on the list is Brooke Burke. She is known mostly for hosting the popular t.v. show Dancing With the Stars, but that's not what landed her number 8 for most powerful mommy bloggers. While her 1.81 million followers on her personal Twitter is admirable, it's her 121,000 followers on her blog's Twitter page that has us impressed. The mother of four is the creator of Modern Mom, a blog that covers everything from celebrity moms to children's books. In addition to that, she also owns Baboosh Baby, which sells mom necessities. In 2010 Burke expressed the importance of having communication with your kids, such as letting them know what you're doing, when you'll be home, and stressing that you will always be back. She says dialogue with your kids is the most important component of being a successful working mother

The next mom on the list takes social media powerhouse to a new level. Ree Drummond, also a mother of four, has even gotten some celebrity attention for her blog titled The Pioneer Woman. She blogs about her life, which has been thought of as so interesting it is rumored Reese Witherspoon is being sought out to play Drummond in a movie. Her blog talks about how she was a self-proclaimed party girl in L.A. until her life turned upside down when she packed up everything and moved to Oklahoma to marry a cattle rancher. This adventure inspired her to begin her blog in 2006 about motherhood, her family, and her life on the ranch. Her story caught on, and quickly. Since its creation, her number of visits per day has gone up to over 22.3 million page views a month in addition to 4.4 million unique visits. Her Twitter page boasts over 231,000 followers and it has been reported that she makes about $1 million from ad revenue per year. She is the author of a cookbook and a novel, titled From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, which landed number two on the New York Times Best Seller List in 2011. The Pioneer Woman has won three different honors at the Weblog Awards, one in 2007, one in 2008, and one in 2009. Also in 2009 she took the top prize has the Weblog of the Year. That is one successful mommy blogger!
