A little background... we were recently featured in Johor Kaki Top 50 Singapore Food Travel and Lifestyle blogs. Surprisingly we were number 18 on the list. Woo Hoo! Guess that meant someone is reading our blog. The list had piqued our curious minds and we decided to make a similar list for the category we are most familiar with - Family Bloggers!
We set a few ground rules in the selection of family blogs.
The main criteria is simple. The featured blogs should be mostly on all things related to family such as parenting tips, travel , lifestyle , kids friendly restaurants and crafts. At least 60 % of content should be family oriented. In addition, the blog should be base in Singapore.
We base the popularity with figures obtained from Similar web. This public portal has been acknowledged as the best publicly available source for web traffic. It does have its shortcomings as blogs with unverified data often shows lower traffic than it really has. Take the numbers with a pinch of salt.Verified data can be 100 times more than compared to what it is currently showing. It is technically possible that someone with unverified data to be number 1 on it. The list may not be 100% accurate but it is the best we can find. We stop at 25, otherwise the list will grow VERY long.
Do note the numbers are base on the month of June only. So on hindsight , it is VERY inaccurate. More salt please.
For up to date data, do consult the individual blog owners whose links are attached in the post
We had made some observations which is rather interesting
- The list is heavily skewed towards mommy bloggers . Mommy bloggers outnumber Daddy bloggers by 3:1
- Most family blogs have posts centered around activities with families.
- The top 3 spots are occupied by Daddy Bloggers . A surprise given that daddy bloggers are a rare breed, probably numbering 1 to every 10 mommy bloggers in Singapore. This rarity may have attribute to the higher readership, thus making them look more popular than it seem.
- The use of one month figure may be inaccurate as some blogs may experience viral posts for that particular month. A 6 months average would be a more accurate gauge but unfortunately such data is difficult to obtain.
- Country Rank is probably a better indicator of the popularity rather than the visits itself.
Bottom-line is this, the popularity of the blog depends on the direction the writer undertakes. There are personalised blogs and there are blogs that are filled with contents that relate to the masses. Each have its own appeal and readers. There is no right or wrong way to blog. Ultimately the choice a blogger made would ultimately affect the readership. The top 25 family blogs have a wide spectrum that goes from private posts to articles that are meant to be informative for a wider audience. For the record TheWackyDuo.com falls in between.
If you spot any hidden gems , just leave a comment here. If we do miss anyone out on the list, do keep us in the loop. Our advice - bookmark all these blogs if you are a parent! Some of the parenting tips and information are priceless!
