One of the main reasons that my twin sister, Susan, and I built 5 Minutes for Mom was because we are e-commerce business owners — and there is nothing more valuable to an online business than a powerful blog!

We strategically designed and built 5 Minutes for Mom to benefit our stores, Pedal Cars and Retro and A Rocking Horse to Love. We knew that we needed to build a high page rank site (5 Minutes for Mom has maintained a page rank 6 for the majority of its five+ years,) and create a way to bring links from other bloggers to our stores.
