My son had just been born and I couldn’t believe such small things (aka children) cost big bucks.
I wasn’t alone. In 2008 when I began blogging, there were an estimated 15,000 mommy blogs, talking about everything from diapers and deals to Down syndrome and postpartum depression. Today, according to Babble.com, 14 percent of all U.S. moms are mommy bloggers.
