The Top 100 (In)Fertility Blogs

In August, I received an email stating that Not So Mommy… had been selected as one of the “Top 100 Fertility Blogs.”  To be honest, I was not overjoyed at this news.  I was actually a bit grumbly, thinking my blog is not a fertility blog but an infertility blog.  Right in the middle of battling grief, I didn’t have the energy to take a closer look at the list nor to respond to the congratulatory email.  In retrospect, I am glad that I didn’t send back an emotional response.  Because a few days later–when I went back to look at this in more detail—I realized being named one of the top fertility blogs really is an honor…

Feedspot is a “media database [with] 100k Influential Bloggers in over 1500 niche categories.”  It includes a dynamic page which ranks the Top 100 Fertility Blogs based on “relevancy, blog post frequency (i.e., freshness), social metrics, domain authority, traffic, and other parameters.”  The top fertility blogs include sites with infertility news and research, clinics for assisted reproductive medicine, companies that provide fertility insurance benefits, trying to conceive blogs, parenting after infertility blogs, and childless after infertility blogs.  How phenomenal that childless voices are being represented within the infertility community!


When I checked the list in August, Not So Mommy… was ranked #62.  When I checked again in October (before writing this blog post), Not So Mommy… had moved up to #58.  I am so grateful that Not So Mommy… is included on this fertility blogs list because it is an opportunity for those in the midst of their battle to see a different perspective…  The perspective of an infertile woman who did not get the little and yet is finding joy by redefining momhood…

Speaking of redefining momhood…  Feedspot also has a dynamic page which ranks the Top 20 Dog Mom Blogs.  And Not So Mommy… is #1!  This makes me smile sooooo much!

Honored to be honored . . .

You know, the purpose of Not So Mommy… is to support, educate, and advocate for the infertility and childless not by choice communities.  Though I do not write this blog to win awards, it does feel good to have my work recognized.

I’m no longer grumbly that Not So Mommy… is listed as one of the “Top 100 Fertility Blogs.”  On the contrary, I’m honored to be included, grateful that a childless dog mom’s voice is featured as a valid perspective within the infertility community.

*No Kidding in NZ, another childless blog, is also currently listed in the “Top 100 Fertility Blogs.”  Congrats to Mali (the childless warrior who writes No Kidding in NZ)!
