does my blog have to be personal?
Not necessarily but keep in mind that TMB isn't a business directory or a general blog directory. It's a mommy blog directory therefore blogs must have an obvious mom's point of
view and be about something that has to do with your life as a mom. If your blog is related to your business, it should contain a behind the scenes feel (the mom behind the
shop for example) and should contain posts vs. articles. If your blog is just a portion of a larger website, submit the direct link to the blog (vs.
your homepage or it will be rejected for not being a blog).
the frugal living & the
coupon categories.. what's the diff?
The coupon category is for blogs that list coupons, coupon round ups, freebies and giveaways for other companies/websites. It's for blogs that share all the great deals
they find. The Frugal Living category is for moms that
blog about living on a budget. The key difference is unique and original content. Because we are more lenient on approving members into the coupon category, it has been separated from the main ranking pages. See this FAQ
do I have to add a banner to my blog?
Yes! Or at least a text link. This is a ranked directory based on the amount of referrals you send in so you need to be able to add a banner or text link to your blogs sidebar in order to send in referrals. No referrals
= no rank = not listed. Most blogs receive way more traffic back than they ever send in so it's a very well worth it link to add to your blog.
how will i get votes?
You'll get votes by your visitors clicking on the TopMommyBlogs.Com banner. Place the banners on your sidebar, blog signature, header/footer or anywhere you think
they'll get noticed and clicked. You can also write blog posts asking your visitors to vote for you and remind them they can vote for you every day. Just don't add voting as a
giveaway entry option. Begging for votes is fine.. but bribing is not!

* At or sole discretion. If the majority of your posts are:
articles, ads, promos or solicitations; have little personal, unique or original content; have an infomercial/sales pitch feel or if we feel your blog is mainly a directory (i.e. listing off coupons,
recipes or contest you are not involved with) it's not really what we are looking for.
If your website/blog is a good
resource for parents or women but doesn't fit the criteria for listing, you may want to consider advertising
on Top Mommy Blogs instead. See
here for more info and rates.
If you have not been blogging for 4 months (#3 above), do not submit this application! Accounts are manually reviewed after your
account has sent in at least 1 referral (make sure to place a voting banner and click it).
