NY Times: Queens of the Mom-Blog Kingdom

Posted on 24. Feb, 2011 by in Biz Models, Silly Parents

NY Times Magazine article about how mommy blogs make money:

Typically, there are 100,000 visitors daily to her site, Dooce.com, where she writes about her kids, her husband, her pets, her treatment for depression and her life as a liberal ex-Mormon living in Utah. As she points out, a sizable number also follow her on Twitter (in the year and a half since she threatened Maytag, she has added a half-million more). She is the only blogger on the latest Forbes list of the Most Influential Women in Media, coming in at No. 26, which is 25 slots behind Oprah, but just one slot behind Tina Brown. Her site brings in an estimated $30,000 to $50,000 a month or more — and that’s not even counting the revenue from her two books, healthy speaking fees and the contracts she signed to promote Verizon and appear on HGTV.

    I’m sorry? 30 to 50k a month in revenue? I didn’t read the whole article, but how does she make her money? Solely from advertising?

    Hong, it appears you have your work cut out for you. You need to find a depressed, liberal mommy who can talk endlessly about her kids and her husband.
