It’s mother’s day today and we are dedicating this blog post to our wonderful mom bloggers who have been helping other mothers make better decisions by sharing their tips, reviews, experiences and adventures. There are, in fact, 4.2 Million mom blogs out there contributing to a wide army of content and word-of-mouth. With their sway and power in making purchasing decisions, moms are a significant channel for brands to promote their products more effectively and authentically and it’s the reason why leading brands, such as Procter and Gamble, are turning to mom bloggers for content creation.
