Momfluential Social Media Marketing: Making the Nielsen Mom Power Pack List

I woke up today to find my name on a list. It’s not just any list, but probably one of the most important lists I could be on as a mom in social media. Nielsen (yes, that Nielsen) included me on their Online Power Mom 50 list.

“Nielsen Online’s Power Mom 50 is a collection of leading voices in the mom blogosphere based on a blend of blog posts and comments, and inbound/outbound captured via Nielsen BuzzMetrics, as well as Twitter followers and other metrics.

The complete list is available here.”

-Jessica Hogue, Research Director, Nielsen Online
Power Moms Consumer Insight Report

Since I’ve been laying low lately as I launch my second blog network and take some much needed rest, I was especially pleased to know people haven’t forgotten about me. 😉

So what does it mean to be on The List? The following 16 “Power Pack” moms are considered “…Momfluentials that pack too much of a punch to be categorized. These women create powerful mom networks; speak around the world on the dynamic digital world of mom; and have legions hanging on their every word -via TV, magazines, podcast, blog or tweet.”

What an honor to be included with some of my favorite women in social media! I do want to say that I think Barbara Jones, Allison Worthington, Isabel Kallman, Michelle Lamar, Janice Croze & Susan Carraretto, Kristin Chase & Liz Gumbinner and Maggie Mason need to get squeezed onto this list somewhere (I say for fear of forgetting another awesome mom myself!).

    What a great list of some of my favorite women!

    Wendy, it is just like you to mention more fab women. Thanks for the love.

    Just another example of why you are so successful!

    I could list about 20 more fab ladies. Just look at the rockstars on your sidebar! 😉

    Congrats Wendy! I was surprised to see my name on the list and super excited. I’m with Allison, there are some more amazing women I would add to the list.

    A side note, as a teacher with close to two degrees, I love your kids network! =)

    Hi Wendy,

    Congratulations on being named to the Power Pack. You have influenced so many of us – I don’t know if you remember taking my phone call when I was struggling with whether to reveal my real name on my new blog, OrganicMania. What a difference a year or two makes. I’m sure I wouldn’t have made the Power Mom 50 list if I hadn’t followed your great advice. Thanks so much for your time and generosity, and congratulations again.

    I only know one Momfluential, and her name is Ciaran Blumenfeld. Maybe I’m confused. I think she’s THE Momfluential if I’m not mistaken.

    Congrats for being on the list with such good company! I *think* that Liz and Maggie were on the Queen Bee page, but I’m not positive.
