Pre-Signup Frequently Asked Questions

Who can sign up for Top Mommy Blogs?

Individual* Mommy & Daddy bloggers who have been blogging for at least 3 months. Before applying, please understand that we do differentiate between resources for moms vs. a blog by a mom for inclusion. If your website is a fantastic resource for moms but not necessarily a blog by a mom than consider advertising on Top Mommy Blogs.

*Collaborative blogs welcomed w/3 or less regular contributors. Blogs consisting of mainly community or guest posts are generally not accepted.

What does being a member of Top Mommy Blogs mean?

It means you're awesome and that you are part of an elite group of mommy bloggers. TMB is a ranked directory which means blogs are displayed by referrals (a.k.a votes) vs. alphabetical or by sign up date. The more referrals a blog generates, the higher it will be ranked.

What is a vote and how do I get them?

A vote is a unique referral from your blog. You'll place a super cool Top Mommy Blogs banner in your sidebar, sig, footer, etc. When it's clicked by your readers and they visit TMB, that's a vote. Votes improve your rank which get your blog seen by even more readers, companies, pr professionals, etc. We call it the circle of awesomeness. Just don't add voting as a giveaway entry option. Asking for votes in giveaways is not awesome nor is anything that artificially inflates rankings.

Does my blog have to be personal?

TMB isn't a business. Visitors come here to read about the lives of moms. Blogs must have an obvious, personal and passionate mom's approach/opinion/theme and relate to the life as a parent, from a moms point of view. If we review your blog and have to ask, "Where's the MOMMY here?" then your blog likely won't be accepted. If your blog is a business:

  • It should have a behind the scenes feel; the mom behind the shop for example, with posts vs. articles, I vs us/our/we
  • Submit the link to your blog instead of your website homepage or it may be rejected for not being a blog

Am I Coupon Blog or Frugal Living?

The frugal living category is for bloggers who write about living frugally with lots of unique and original content. Where we won't likely see a similar post on another blog. On the contrary, if your blog contains mostly 3rd party giveaways, coupon round-ups, etc, then this is not considered to be "unique and original" and you should apply for the coupon category which is it's own mini-site housed here (TopCouponMommyBlogs.Com). Because we are more lenient on approving members into the coupon category, it's been separated from the main ranking pages. See this FAQ for more...

Do I have to add a banner to my blog?

Yes! This is a *free* activity centric & ranked directory based on the amount of votes/referrals you send in so adding a TMB banner/link is crucial. No votes = no rank = not listed. We've worked hard to make sure the banners are attractive to enhance your sidebar. Ugly banners are not cool. If you remove your TMB badge, that tells us you don't want to participate anymore and your account will likely be removed.

If you have other questions, please or refer to the full Frequently Asked Questions page for more info.
