Sharing in another mum’s life online keeps so many of us sane – and that’s why we’ve launched The Mum List to celebrate those fabulous mamas who inspire, entertain and reassure us all.
The Mum List presents the very best UK-based mumfluencers, including bloggers, vloggers and Instagrammers, no matter how big their following – and there are some fab mum-bloggers with less than 5000 followers alongside the two-million-plus big hitters.
We asked you to nominate your favourite mumfluencers and their online content was judged on these qualities:
- Feel-good factor: Does she make you happy to be the mum you are?
- Inspirational: Does it inspire you to be the mum you want to be?
- Relatable: Do you feel she’s a normal mum, just like you?
- Reassuring: Does she help you cope with the challenges of being a mum?
- Entertaining: Does she make you laugh and want to come back for more?
- Innovative: Does she give you a unique view on life as a mum?
So without further ado, here's the countdown of the top mumfluencers you need to follow in 2019.
