World Moms Blog Forbes 2013


We Did It Again!

This just in!  World Moms Blog is listed for a 2nd year in a row by Forbes Woman in their “100 Best Websites for Women 2013“!  The news came to us through a Facebook Fan, and we are literally OVER THE MOON across the continents abuzz with the great news!

Forbes says, “We couldn’t be happier to present the fourth annual list of FORBES 100 Best Websites for Women than we are today—for this year more than any other this has been true collaborative effort by dedicated staffers, contributors and ForbesWoman readers. For that reason it just might be—dare we say it—the best list ever.”

What does Forbes Woman look for in choosing their top 100?  They say, ” Informative and compelling content, sure, but also smart design, engaged communities and a voice that speaks to and for the female reader.” And also, “these 100 websites look to educate, inform and entertain you in ways you won’t find in the mainstream.”

And what Forbes said uniquely about us, “For a truly global perspective on motherhood, World Moms brings together writers from the US and Canada to Australia, China, India and Japan to discuss parenting across cultures.” Here we are in pictures on the Forbes site, too.

Saying we’re honored is an understatement.

Congratulations to all of our amazing editing and contributing staff; you, our dedicated readers; our life-saving web designer and tech support; and the organizations that have acknowledged our work such as BlogHer, Forbes Woman and the NY Times Motherlode; and also those organizations that have supported our campaigns for social good such as the UN Foundation & Shot@Life, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,, GAVI Alliance and more!

The support of this award motivates our mothers to keep doing the work that we do according to our mission statement:

  • Connecting mothers around the world through their stories.
  • Promoting understanding and tolerance of other cultures, religions and nationalities.
  • Encouraging discussion of important motherhood, parenting, cultural and human rights topics.
  • Creating a support system for mothers via the web site.
  • Helping to promote our writers.
  • To strive to create opportunities for social good to make the lives of mothers and children better around the planet.

I wish I could hop a plane around the world and hug each and every one of our World Moms today! I really, really mean that! Well done, ladies.

Today, we celebrate.  Tomorrow, we work toward new goals and becoming even better with this honor, “Forbes Best 100 Websites for Women 2013” as our motivation. We’re not stopping. Let’s do it, ladies!
