Social Networking
With Moms

No matter how you feel about social networking, you can’t deny the power of the tweet. The popularity of Twitter has exploded in recent years, making it one of the most powerful forms of communication available in cyberspace. Collectively, moms project a loud voice via Twitter, speaking out on everything from chaotic schedules and messy husbands to crafts and politics.

Thank you so much for including me on this list! It is an honor to be included in this lineup of amazing women, many who I know (and love) in real life! Wanted to make sure you knew that I haven't been tweeting from @JessicaKnows for several months now...now tweeting @JessicaNow. And another update! I no longer live in Sacramento, just moved back to Washington, DC Metro area (where I"m originally from) to work out of my firm's DC office. Thanks again!

Love the list thanks. But in the future could you make it easier for your readers to be able to follow on Twitter by linking from their Twitter handle like you did for @Sheknows and @pregnancyandbaby

SqueezeItIn Girls March 18, 2010 | 6:34 AM

Great list! - @SqueezeItIn

@jennawrites March 17, 2010 | 9:54 AM

Lucretia March 12, 2010 | 11:21 AM

Wow what a great list of ladies to find myself on... thanks for including me! :) I feel fortunate for knowing many of these women already and can't wait to follow those I wasn't already. Aimee is right that there's no way to make a list to encompass all the amazing ladies out there on twitter - but I kind of like the way that people will always come to these articles and add a few more to the comments - as a rule? It just gives me more awesome ladies to follow & connect with! :)

Kayt Sukel March 12, 2010 | 9:57 AM

Thank you so much for including me! Somehow I'm just seeing this but I'm honored to be included with so many incredible Mom bloggers.

I follow all but 3 on this list. Your list delves in to the part of the blogosphere that interests me: good writing and good people. Thanks for an inclusive list.
