So, you’re blogging away to your heart’s content about your adorable little cutie-pies, posting artfully arranged pictures of them in the snow or describing their latest supermarket meltdown in excruciating detail, when you’re struck by a troubling thought: is anybody actually reading this? And if they aren’t reading me, who are they reading? Who are the big fish in the even bigger pond that is the world of parenting blogs?

Who are the most influential parenting bloggers on Twitter in the UK?

Let’s break this down to the national level. We’ve taken a look at the Tots 100 list of UK parenting blogs, adding a few other parenting blogs that we’ve encountered that do not feature, and tried to assess the impact each blogger has on Twitter, using the social media analytics service, Klout.

Klout is one of the ways in which UK bloggers are able to gauge (and jealously guard) their own social media impact. To give some sense of perspective, Google and Twitter each have a Klout score of 97. (Klout has rather modestly awarded itself a score of 80.) The score is one of the factors that Tots 100 use to come up with its own rankings each month, but Klout focuses particularly on likes, comments and shares – social media’s most precious crypto-currency.

Our Top 50

So, deep breath, here is our list of the 50 most influential parenting bloggers on Twitter. We’ve highlighted our Top 13, as there was just too much influence to squeeze into 10 bloggers.

The good news is that many of them are joint 38th, so no one has to worry about being bottom of the league. On other hand, we are very aware that we might have left out a mummy blogging superstar out there somewhere, so if you have any suggestions for people we’ve overlooked, let us know by posting a comment below.
