Mom Bloggers, Why Do You Have Followers?

It’s puzzling to mom bloggers why people read their blogs.
But face it. Someone’s reading it. Someone is following you. I am one of your followers.
Why do watch for a new-post, or pop my head in my RSS Reader to check and see what is new on your blog?
It’s not that your blog is super relevant to my life. Maybe yes, maybe not at all.
I’m might be learning from your blog. I might see you as a teacher. I might find you entertaining. All though I appreciate these things, it’s not why I read you.
This is way I follow you and probably why others follow you, too.
I’m looking at how you’re living your life, and I’m thinking about how to improve my own life.
I love your attitude. I’m working on becoming that person I want to be.
Watching you do your best helps me do my best.
You’re a real living human being, walking your talk, being that person you’re telling me about, you, inspires me. Yes I identify with you or your vision, somehow.
But the reason I’m your peep is a combination of factors that nobody can precisely identify – so don’t even try. Just keep blogging.
You could change your topic overnight, but as long as you are still writing with heartfelt integrity, I’d be there waiting for you to hit “publish.”
Thanks to all of my mom blogger friends. You inspire me. You entertain me. You all add to my life in a positive way.


  1. What a great post! Following you now! :)

  2. Thanks for the follow, I am following you back! I like your blog!

  3. I loved this post!!
    I too love reading blogs. My poor husband never understands it.
    "is it like reality tv?" is his understanding.
    "uh, kinda"
    men! lol

  4. Nice post. I would be happy to have you as a follower! I am following you now.

  5. Thanks for stopping by from MB, I am now returning the follow. I love your blog, wish I would have found it earlier! Thanks for finding me!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I'm following you now :)

  7. Thanks everyone for the comments. I really do love to read your blogs. I am amazed by the great content I find from the mom blogging community.I love promoting great blogs.Thanks again, Dianne

  8. Thanks for visiting my blog 8aplenty. And thank you so much for this post. I have to say that the more followers I am getting the more I have second guessing what I post. Some of them are parents of my kids friends and I certainly don't want any backlash on my kiddos. But like you said, I am hoping they are following because of who I am and what I write!
