I like parties, but I don’t like the clean-up, so I’m pretty excited about this upcoming shindig: the More Than Mommies Mixer. My new gal pal Christine at More Than Mommmies and her partner in crime, Janene, are hosting a blog hop and you’re all invited!! Until this morning, when Christine was kind enough to sit me down at her kitchen table and talk real slow about what a blog hop is, I was clueless. Allow me: it’s a way for those of us in the blogosphere to join forces and support one another in our writing endeavors. The really cool part is that we can link to and follow each other, and hopefully increase our readership. Think of it as going door-to-door and introducing yourself to your neighbors: “Hi! I’m Steph and I’d like to be your friend!” Only you don’t have to wear make-up or brush your teeth to make a good impression at this Mixer.
We’re Moms, so we know how important flexibility and options are. For your Mixing enjoyment, we offer a variety of ways to get in on the action:
Twitter: @CrazyExhaustion; @MoreThanMommies–use #MTMmixer so we can find ya!
Facebook: When Crazy Meets Exhaustion and More Than Mommies
Pinterest: When Crazy Meets Exhaustion and More Than Mommies
I’m fairly new to the whole blogging world, but I will say this: when I was pregnant for the first time, I found an online community of other expectant moms and that kind of support system grew to mean so much to me. We could ask questions, share concerns, compare pictures of our cankles. Suffice it to say, it was fun and a great way to meet new people. And contrary to what my own mother says about the Internet, it is NOT the devil and it CAN bring good people, not just perverts, together.
So, here’s to the More Than Mommies Mixer! I hope to see you ther
Hello and so glad to “meet” you! Am so excited to be a co-host with you 🙂 Looking forward to seeing this take-off!
Yay! Hi, Meredith! I’m so glad you commented; I have “find Meredith” on my to-do list!!! 🙂
I totally want to get in on this, but sadly I have to establish some social media presence for my blog first. It doesn’t have it’s own FB or Twitter yet! OH NO!
Hopefully I’ll hear about something like this in a few weeks when I get my act together!
JOIN US!!!!!! You don’t need a thing except your blog!! The other “stuff” is just to give people options. Truly, if you have a blog, your act is so together 🙂 You’ll get links and suggestions of other blogs to follow, and hopefully you’ll gain followers, too. It’s a win-win 🙂
awwww man…I’m not a mummy yet. 😦
No worries, Vernette!! Join us anyway–make some new friends and then go to Happy Hour while those of us who are parents go to bed!!
😀 when you put it like that…I will!!!!
So happy you agreed to host with us….look at you talking us up! I just want to let your readers know that they do not have to be a “mommy blogger” to party with us! Also if you don’t have a blog but would like to add people to your G+ circles, gain followers on twitter or pinterest –there will be an opportunity to link up that way! In any case, stop by and meet and greet! Can’t wait to meet all of you!
This was in my SPAM!!!!!!! How dare my spam folder!
I’m a dog mommy, does that count?!? Lol. I have two big dogs of my own and I am a dog foster mom so I typically have THREE dogs in my house. It’s crazy. Your blog inspired me to write some of the funny things that I encounter as a dog foster mom. It’s not my best piece, I’m usually more emotional than funny, but it was fun, so thanks! http://pittiesforyourthoughts.wordpress.com/2012/10/27/just-some-foster-humor/
Pittiesforyourthoughts, it DEFINITELY counts! A lot of what I learned about being a parent came from experiences with my dogs 🙂 I’ll definitely check out your post–I love me some pitts!
The More Than Mommies Mixer is LIVE everyone! Come and party with us!!
Wait, what exactly happens at a blog hop, and should I bring wine?
A blog hop is basically a way to connect to other blogs. We’re basically thrown together by the hostesses and mingle from there. And do you really have to ask about the wine? 🙂
