Forbes Releases List of the Top 100 Websites for Women in 2012


Looking for a place on the web to kill a little time? Maybe you want to catch up on celebrity gossip, find a new recipe for dinner tonight, or read the words of like-minded women struggling for that elusive state of balance between work and home life.

No matter what kind of content you are looking to consume, you’re sure to find it somewhere on Forbes’ list of the top 100 websites for women. Released just yesterday, the editors at Forbes say they compiled the list by searching for websites with “informative and compelling content, smart navigable design, engaged communities and, of course, a voice that speaks to and for the female reader.”

So, who made this year’s list? Popular female bloggers such as Heather Armstrong of Dooce, Jenny Lawson also known as The Bloggess, and Penelope Trunk return to the list and this year Stephanie Nielson of The Nie Nie Dialogues joins them.

Of course, no list of top sites for women is complete without Pinterest, a website that has grown rapidly over the last year in large part due to women who make up over 80% of its users.

Forbes reports that they received over 1,100 suggestions for the list from readers, contributors, and staff members. You can find the full list here, which just so happens to include us here at Babble. A special shout out to my colleagues on Strollerderby. Forbes thinks you’re witty.
