Great article by Social Media Strategist Sarah Browne (firstname.lastname@example.org) in MediaPost Communications on the power of kid bloggers.
Award-winning sites such as TheCradle.com, a hot new “lifestyle destination for new pregnancy and new parenthood,” are packed with easy-to-use social networking features for Moms to be, including personalizable Web page templates, e-cards, message boards, expert advice, and a Products Guide to help users with “the information you need to know for your need-to-have items.”
Another diaper-driven site, Baveo.com launched its private beta site for the expectant parent recently.
TheBump.com is the latest entry from popular wedding site (1.8 million unique visitors in January ’08/comScore) TheKnot.com, which acquired the group of local magazines and maternity guides last February in something of a surprise move. TheBump.com is now concentrating on helping future Moms and fledgling ones find their tribes — virtually every inch of its front page is crammed with newsy “Featured” stories plucked from their thriving communities.
