For wonderful web wednesday I’m happy to highlight a few great blog directories/sites out there catering to women and mom bloggers. We women need to stick together and support each other and these resources are a great way to do so!
- BlogHer—BlogHer’s mission is to “create opportunities for women who blog to pursue exposure, education, community and economic empowerment.” BlogHer has an extensive advertising network and provides a fantastic community for its bloggers via annual conferences and a fabulous web network.
- BlogsByWomen—BlogsByWomen is a directory of women bloggers where each blog is approved by hand to keep low-quality blogs, splogs and “those stinky boys out.” The site currently has 5,490 blogs listed and because blogs are approved by hand you’ve got one of the highest quality directories around. Search engines and searchers (aka people) consider BlogsByWomen an authority site. Its Google pagerank is 5!
- Crazy Hip Blog Mamas—Crazy Hip Blog Mamas started as a webring back in 2003 and is now a great resource for moms. Connect with “other crazy, hip blog mamas dealing with raising kids and exploiting their journey on the internet.” The site has recipes, product reviews, projects and activities for kids, and member-written articles. Crazy Hip Blog Mamas is a lot of fun!
- MomsBlogging.com—MomsBlogging.com is “all about the blog.” Features include a weekly contest roundup, groovy mom blogger profile, and my favorite, Friday’s fabulous freebies.
If you know of a helpful resource for women bloggers please share! –Emily
