Tell us about your community.
Mom Blog Society is a knowledge base; for moms and by moms. We feature bloggers from around the world. And although we are new, we are becoming a powerful group.
When did you create this community?
I created Mom Blog Society in September 2011.
How did you choose the name of your community? I’ve always thought of mom bloggers as a unique society, thus Mom Blog Society.
What motivated and inspired you to create and move forward with your community?
I created Mom Blog Society, because I believe that every mom’s blog is essential to the blogging world. Therefore, I strive to promote our members and encourage each and every member of our site to speak up and tell the world what’s on their mind!
Tell us a little about your family.
I’m a proud mommy of three 2 boys and 1 girl. I’m married to a wonderful man who is not only my life partner, but my business partner.
How do you prioritize your family and your community?
My family always comes first. That is just a given. But honestly, I’m a workaholic. I work from the time I get up, till the time I go to bed. And then, I work in my sleep!
Where do you see your community and yourself in 5 years?
I see Mom Blog Society growing into a supportive group of bloggers. Sharing, teaching, and learning from one another. Our members are so passionate about their blogs. And, they are a great inspiration to me.
Biggest life lesson learned since building this community?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, what works from one community may not work for another. You have to find what works for you, and then run with it!
Do you have a favorite business / social media tool / resource?
What is your secret to success?
Dedication. If I’m not dedicated to the members of our community, then there wouldn’t be any success.
All Entrepreneurs encounter difficult days. How do you handle yours?
It depends on the issues. Sometimes, just stepping away and working on something else helps me find the right course of action.
What was your sweetest success story?
Watching members of Mom Blog Society interact! How sweet is that?
How do you relax?
Relax? What’s that?
Share your favorite motivational quote or inspirational thought:
When you start looking at your blog as a business, that’s when you’ll succeed.
Do you belong to any other social media networks?
Facebook and Twitter
What blog(s)/communities do you just have to read daily?
There are a lot of great bloggers in our community. When I see a new post go up, I run right on over to their blog and read it.
If you could have anyone particular person be a part of your community, who would you invite?
I would invite Jennifer James of Mom Bloggers Club. Although our communities are on the same platform, they are totally different in content. But, I believe that Jennifer James has a lot of wisdom to offer. We encourage the spread of wisdom on MBS.
Have you attended any business or blog conferences?
If yes, which ones? I went to the Social Media Network in Miami a few years back. It was great. I’ll also be attending the Blogher in 2012. I plan to attend more, I just haven’t made time to go.
What has been your most memorable experience at a conference or event.
The enormity of knowledge all in one room!
