MOMocrats: Press Page




MOMocrats is a national collaborative blog for progressive mom bloggers who write about politics from a mom’s perspective. We have been quoted and featured in newspapers, radio, television, podcasts, and linked to in a wide variety of other blogs and websites. Our syndicated work has appeared in Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Sun-Times, and other media outlets via Blogburst.

Aside from our blog, we contribute a column to The Huffington Post’s Off The Busfeature and produce a bi-weekly internet radio show on Blog Talk Radio. We were among 120 blogs credentialed to cover the Democratic National Convention in 2008. Several MOMocrats were speakers at BlogHer 2008 Conference, and Blog World Expo 2008.

To contact the MOMocrats for press interviews or speaking engagements, please e-mail us at momocrats (at) gmail (dot) com.
