Utah's female blogger population is a growing demographic. Sometimes referred to as "mom, or even mommy, bloggers" — a nickname most of these college-educated, politically active and environmentally conscious writers shun — this group of women has a lot to say, and people are reading it. According to a national survey, 14 percent of all American mothers with at least one child in their household blog about parenting or turn to blogs for advice. As of May 2012, 35 percent of blog-reading or -writing moms in the U.S. were located in the state of Utah, beating the next closest state by 12 percent. While most of Utah's women bloggers won't see any national recognition, some have gotten exactly that, landing book deals and speaking engagements and invitations to the White House. Here's a look at a few of the top Utah female bloggers.

This list is a joke, right? If you want to write a list of Mormon bloggers, do that -- don't say the top "Utah women" bloggers and leave off Dooce (probably one of the biggest bloggers in the country, born here, grew up here, currently lives in SLC) to put on girls in New York and San Francisco.
