Important info for hosted Wordpress users. If you have a Wordpress URL that looks like this: https://myblog.wordpress.com/ than please wait to sign up until this notice is gone. Wordpress is moving it's hosted blogs to
https (vs http) and our system is not tracking those URLS. TMB is migrating to a new system shortly that will be able to handle secure URLs. If you have your own .com (http://www.mycoolblog.com)
that isn't hosted via Wordpress then there should be no issues.
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.
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
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.
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
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:
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...
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.
