Promoting Moms Via www.Mom2Mom.socialgo.com

29 Aug

I got to play question and answer with Louise Edington for my website www.Mom2Mom.socialgo.com I came across her by total accident, she was a person who liked one of my Facebook fan pages, for the site Mom 2 Mom. After I saw her name I decided to check her out. I then saw that she was a mom, blogger, tweeter, and took part in many other things. I skimmed over her blog and found a posting that I related to. So I checked out her blog a little more, eventually becoming a subscriber to it. I contacted Louise via e-mail and asked her could I ask her some questions, because she was a mom and blogger…. She said yes! I was so excited that she said yes, because I try to promote moms with everything that they do. Which is one of the reasons I wanted to ask Louise some questions. I am also trying to let moms know about a great social networking site for moms. I am trying to reach a goal of at least 100 users, but by no means do I want to stop there! Once I reach that goal and have more consistent users at Mom 2 Mom, the site will be able to utilize video chat as well as run advertisements! It is all about me helping you, help me. If that makes any sense. Currently Mom 2 Mom has IM, messaging, video and picture uploads, blogging, groups, and more. We currently have 21 users at Mom 2 Mom and Louise Edington is one of them! Okay enough about my site, check out the Q & A with Louise Edington. I hope you will enjoy it!

Q

First off let other me ask, what are all of the projects that you are currently working on or the projects that you will be doing in the future?

A

I am currently learning how to use social media to grow my business. I’m a Childcare Coordinator for a live in cultural exchange AuPair program and I’m looking for families for whom hosting an AuPair is a great option. I have just completed The Social Networking Coaching Club with Ann Evanston http://bit.ly/bzTgcn through which I have learnt how to market online without being ‘salesy’. I actually did a blog post about the course http://bit.ly/acyiFW and also about my role as a Childcare Coordinator http://bit.ly/duSIl3 for those that would be interested to learn more.

Q

What made you start blogging?

A

I had always liked the idea of doing a blog but never got round to it. I actually started blogging as a part of Ann Evanston’s boot camp and I wonder why on earth I didn’t start years ago!

Q

What is your blogging style?

A

My style? Hmmm – I’m just me really. I try to convey who I am through blogging. I’m British so I try and put across some of my Britishness and I try to inject a little humor into my posts.

Q

Since you do have a blog, let others know, what makes your blog so special? In other words, why should someone subscribe to your blog or at least read it?

A

I feel my blog is special because I am a very energetic person who lives a very full life so I have a lot to talk about. I’m an older mum who works at home and tries to juggle all that, that entails. I have also moved a LOT in my life. I lived in Canada and the US as an AuPair/Nanny when I was younger and I’ve lived back in the UK, Australia and here in the US again with my husband and children. I call my blog Lou Loves Learning because I see myself as a lifelong learner. I have a thirst for learning new things and I am enjoying sharing my experiences and that thirst for knowledge with others.

Q

I checked out your blog, I also subscribe to your blog and I was looking at your blog posting “Working Stay At Home Mum- My Day”, your day was pretty busy. Is that typical for you? I know as a mom myself who is trying to get into blogging it can be hard. It can actually be very hard from my perspective, just by trying to balance everything.
How do you do it?

A

Yes, that’s a very typical day for me. I’m still learning how to balance and sometimes I do it better than others. I’m finding focus helps. I am focusing on my goals, creating a vision board and statement so that I know what I’m aiming for. Of course those goals are moveable but it really helps to have that focus. I also find that to do lists are a BIG help – again, they help keep focus.

Q

For all of the people who think that bloggers just sit at home all day behind their computers, have it easy, and don’t really have a job, what would you like to say to these people? I ask this question, because once upon a time I was one of those people. I thought the job was very easy, at least until I started to partake in blogging.

A

Well I’m not just a blogger, it’s a part of what I do. However, I do see it as a major part of my job as it means that I get to meet people and those people get to know me. Hopefully those that get to know me through blogging will not only enjoy my blog but also think of me if they ever need live in childcare or if they hear of someone else who needs live in childcare. Blogging also keeps me busy – to do a blog well there are certain things I have to remember to do and also I have to blog frequently and that means thinking about it almost constantly to get ideas for blog posts.
Well that just about sums up my Q & A with Louise Edington. I really appreciate Louise taking the time out to answer my questions. Thanks a million! In the mean time everyone else can check out Louise’s blog http://louiseedington.com/ as well as my site www.Mom2Mom.socialgo.com you can help Mom 2 Mom reach its goal of at least 100 users!!

To Know Me Is To Blog Me

29 Jul

To know me is to blog me, you should also follow me. Yes I’m on Twitter @MomPorschea87 and I also have a social networking site for moms. YAY!! Even though I only have 13 users, myself included, but I am going to keep at it. Just in case if you are interested in joining the site is http://www.Mom2Mom.socialgo.com Sometimes I feel like giving up on the site at times because I have hardly any users. But its something that I started and I am going to stick with it. I find it so funny because if I had a dis yo baby mama site I would have lots of users. But whatever. It is a great place for stay at home moms. I say this because my site is mobile, but it does not work on all mobile devices. It can be accessed from cell phone that have full web browsing access, so that’s a good thing. One of these days I will be an internet sensation. I have started recording something like a video blog, which I will be uploading to You Tube. But for some reason it won’t let me upload my video. Once I iron out the kinks you (the reader) will be able to view The Life Of A Black Mom. I think its about time that black mothers are depicted, even if its just for the viewing pleasures on You Tube. Boy I can only imagine what I will be able to capture. I have a kid, obviously and they do say and do the funniest things. Plus with my boyfriend; child’s father and myself in the mix, it should be good. Nothing scripted or written, just real life. Something that “reality” shows are missing. So it will never be a dull moment. I hope that you will watch me. So in the mean time I will keep on being a mother and student who blogs, tweets, records, surfs the net, and all other things in between. After August 2nd when the summer semester ends I will have lots of free time to work on all of the things and sites that I am apart of. I hope that you will love it all. Or at least like it. Untill next time….. Blog me or Tweet me on Twitter @MomPorschea87
