…that in 2009 there were almost 4.0 million mom bloggers taking on the Blogosphere by storm?! And the numbers have onlyÂ grown!
…that in March 2009 a study conducted by BlogHer found that for women ages 18-77, 72.5% of them were blogging?
…that 79% of women with children ages 18 & under are involved in some sort of social media whether it’s blogging, facebook, twitter, or any other social media platform (or in most of our cases, all of the above?)
…that mom bloggers are 78% more influential than celebrities when selling a product?
…that 18.3 million internet users who are moms read blogs at least once a month?
…87.1 million women online are active on a weekly basis in social media (including blog interactions, Facebook, message boards, and other social networking sites). (Direct Quote from WendyÂ Piersall)
…for the 20+ million BlogHer Network audience, engaging in reading blogs is their number one regular online activity, above watching TV, visiting Facebook, or reading other traditional media sources such as newspapers or magazines. (Direct quote from Wendy Piersall)

Women drive the economy, and it’s about time marketing realized that!
Cool stats! But…
…women ages 18-77, 72.5% of them were blogging…
That doesn’t sound right considering that other than me, maybe 1 other woman I know in real life has a blog. Of course BlogHer was probably polling mostly Bloggers 🙂
