You don't need to attend a BlogHer Convention to realize that "mommy bloggers" are a force to be reckoned with. Michelle Mitton was one of the first "mommy bloggers" to make a name for herself and her blog Scribbit, almost six years ago. In 2008, she was selected by The Wall Street Journal as one of the top ten blogs about motherhood, and her site attracts nearly 60,000 page views every month and 2,300 daily subscribers.
