This week, Forbes released their list of the most powerful web stars who have turned their passions into new media empires -- two of whom are moms! See who made the list ...
We were so excited to see that two of the Forbes Web Celeb 25 are moms! Talk about female power! Landing at # 7 on their list was Heather "Dooce" Armstrong, and at # 22, Ree Drummond, otherwise known as The Pioneer Woman.
Forbes defines a "Web celebrity" as "a person famous primarily for creating or appearing in Internet-based content, and who is highly recognizable to a Web-based audience." This, of course, excludes super new-media celebs like Ashton Kutcher, who had fame on his side to help kick-start his online popularity. Other names making the list include: Tila Tequila, Perez Hilton, Pete Cashmore of Mashable.com, and Gary Vaynerchuk of WineLibrary.com.
Congrats to super-influencers Dooce and Ree!
