The Most Influential Parenting Bloggers

Using Brandwatch Audiences we've dug up the most influential parenting bloggers on Twitter. Check out the list below.

From Mumsnet to the blogosphere, parents have taken to the internet to share tips, vent, and discuss all the strange things that happens when you let tiny humans into your home.

There are thousands upon thousands of parenting bloggers out there, so we thought we’d use Brandwatch Audiences to see which ones were the most influential on Twitter. First, here are some details on how it all works.


For this research we used Brandwatch Audiences to search for people that with parent blogger related terms in their bio, such as ‘mummy blogger’ or ‘mommy blogger’.

Then, Audiences ranked them by their influence score. This measures of how influential an account is. The tool counts genuine engagement, and so excludes bot activity, with followers, retweets, and replies all being taken into account.

In other words, if an account gets lots of real interactions they’ll have a good influencer score.

Now let’s see who made the most influential parenting bloggers list.

10. DIY Daddy – @NigeHiggins4

Influence score: 61
Followers: 9,135

Starting us off is Nigel, a dad of five. He started his blog for a couple of reasons. The first in the hopes his kids will read the blog when they grow up, and the second to offer up simple DIY advice. Nigel was a painter and decorator for 20 years, so he’s combined his DIY knowledge with his parenting experience.

9. Susan Mann – @susankmann

Influence score: 65
Followers: 14,127

Next we have Susan Mann, a mother of two from Glasgow. Have blogged for over eight years, it’s no surprise she’s made the list. An aspiring novelist, Susan talks about all areas of parenting from the day-to-day life of it all to health, travel and crafts. She even posts her own recipes too.

8. Jaime – @unpreparedmommy

Influence score: 65

At number eight is Jaime. Admittedly often ‘baffled’ by parenting, Jaime offers up a ton of advice around being a parent, including budget tips, holiday planning advice, and suggestions for keeping your kids entertained. Uniquely, Jaime is a big Disney fan and has loads of content on the subject, plus loads of posts on Disney World with advice and hacks for visits.

Now we have Jenny Eaves of the Monkey and Mouse blog. A mother of two boys, Jenny covers the usual range of parenting topics, including days out and travel.

6. Lani Derrick – @LifeAnchored

Despite having the lowest number of followers on the list, Lani Derrick comes in at number six. Clearly she’s doing something right on Twitter.
