I started blogging in 2009 and you can read more about it on my About Me page.
After 2 years, I’ve realized that blogging is actually pretty tough. It takes me hours, even days, to compose a blog post because I really want to make sure it is well-thought and a lot of times, well-researched. I am actually amazed I can accomplish blogging at least once a week. Similarly, I am amazed with other mom bloggers who are able to blog along with their mom duties and businesses. I am actually lucky that I have met a few of these really amazing moms on social media over the past 2 years. Somehow, through our tweets, blogs and Facebook posts, we have become kindred spirits.
One of these moms is Janice Villanueva, whom I met in 2006 when we worked together on a mom event for Johnson’s Baby. Both of us run creative agencies and work with clients on several campaigns. In one of our casual meetings, we discussed a vision we had for both our brand clients doing digital campaigns and moms on social media.
We envisioned a collective of moms on social media who had great content and unique points of view; a group who maintains their authenticity and ethics; a group whom other moms believe in and would want to be friends with. We envisioned our brand clients being educated about what moms on social media would be excited to write about; how authenticity can be more effective than tag lines; and how our own experiences with brands can probably (and I emphasize probably) enlighten moms more than any print ad can.
With this vision, we decided to form a group of social media moms, which we eventually coined Mommy Mundo SoMoms.
I’m pretty proud of this group. They embody our vision and in all humility, they give a good name to moms who blog and are active on social media.
The Mommy Mundo SoMoms will be part of the Mommy Mundo Bazaar in the Rockwell Tent on November 24-25. You can ask us anything about blogging, social media, motherhood, mompreneurship, our advocacies, or even what the good finds are in the bazaar.
