Before BlogHer this year was Pathfinder Day. I remember walking into the Convention center that morning, a bundle of nerves and not sure if I knew anyone in the room.
I ended up sitting next to a woman who had her adorable baby with her. We started chatting, she said her name was Jen, and I asked her where she wrote at.
“World Moms Blog,” she said, and explained that it was a blog written by women all over the world. They came to share their stories about motherhood, culture, food, education, the differences and similarities in raising children, and to connect. Jen is the founder.
Honest to goodness, I thought it might have been the best idea I’d ever heard of. Who wouldn’t want a peek into how a mom in India or Australia deals with discipline? How a mom in Japan or Norway handles the day as a stay at home or working mom?
That’s why I watched the documentary Babies. Not because of the kids, but to have a glimpse into the lives of parents around the globe. Although the kids were cute.
I’m a huge supporter and fan of what Jen does and her blog idea has skyrocketed off. I’ll be writing from my little corner of the globe (yes, in between the moms from places like Saudi Arabia and New Zealand they let someone from El Paso, Texas in, lol) on their site a few times a month. My goal is to share my perspective as a military wife and as a bit of a crunchy freak. Works, yes?
It’s a great community and offers up a wealth of information. You can also find them on Twitter and Facebook. They are also looking for more international moms (as I know a few of you are reading this) so shoot Jen an email if you are interested.
Head over to their site and read my interview and then about the other moms writing there!
