A recent study entitled, “Mom Bloggers Voices and Votes Influence State of Union” comes to the conclusion that women online have a huge impact on politics and social issues.   The graphics proclaim “Mom bloggers vote!” “Mom bloggers care!” Mom bloggers are “motivated!”

To that I say, ya’ think?

Now, I’m not a pollster and I didn’t conduct any statistical analyses when I wrote Mothers of Intention: How Women and Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America.  But when I was looking for essays to include in the book, it didn’t take me long to find a whole lot of smart ladies writing online about the issues they care about, so it seems to me that most of the revelations of this new study have been pretty evident to anyone who’s been paying attention.

So, is the study a stunning revelation or are people just now tuning in to what’s been going on for years?  You can read the rest of what I think about this study over at PunditMom’s Spin Cycle at Babble Voices!
