I’ve been blogging since 2002. I’ve got 10 years of blogposts lying around LiveJournal, Blogspot and the soon-to-be-deleted Multiply, and it’s a hodgepodge of shopping finds, angst, sharing of experiences and mind-dumping, sprinkled with a lot of fun and some bad decisions.
Now, as a wife and mother, this blog has grown to more than just a sounding board (or whining board as some of my earlier blogposts reveal) to being a platform for advocacies, a way to connect to other parents, and in some cases, as a business. Writing has always been my language, and blogging became a natural extension of my real-life loquacious self. More mothers on the internet made social media the new “neighborhood playground”, and it was through Facebook, Twitter and blogger events that I met a lot of fellow blogging moms who became colleagues and friends.
An organization that has provided me with a lot of opportunities for myself, the blog, and Basti (hee hee) is Mommy Mundo. Through them I met a lot of brands that wanted to partner up and support my tiny corner of the website, and I’ve enjoyed writing and sharing about these brands and products that I believe in. I always look forward to something Mommy Mundo organizes – it’s not just an opportunity to learn and to share, but to meet up with these moms I have conversations with over Twitter and have come to call as friends. And with that, Mommy Mundo SoMoms was formed!
SoMoms stand for Social Media Moms, composed of a founding group of twelve blogging moms who are all different in personalities, advocacies and blogging goals. But one thing I love about all of these ladies is how fun they are, and how their blogs reflect their personalities and interests. Here are the SoMoms!
Neva of Manila Mommy, Michelle of My Mom Friday, Jenny of Chronicles of A Nursing Mom, Tin of the Manila Fashion Observer, me, Janice of My Mundo (and Mommy Mundo’s head mommy), Cai of Apples & Dumplings, Jenny of My Mommyology, Jen of Jen and the 3 Boys, Jackie of Go! Jackie Go, Fleur of Mommy Fleur and Kris of OC Mom In Manila.
The Mommy Mundo SoMoms have lots of things in store for everyone in the coming months! To start off, we’ll be at the Mommy Mundo Bazaar this November 24-25, and you can come to our booth to sit, chat, chika or ask anything about our blogs. We’ve got you covered from breastfeeding, babywearing, recipes, shopping finds, fashion and beauty, health, mompreneurship, parenting and lots lots more. We’d love to to meet you!
The Mommy Mundo Bazaar will be on November 24-25 at the Rockwell Tent.
The new Mommy Mundo 24/7 Planner 2-13 will also be launched at the Mommy Mundo Bazaar.
If you didn’t get one last year, you should see it! It’s got all the stuff that mothers need to organize their day-to-day lives, with spaces for each family’s members’ schedule, a menu planner, grocery list, household staff information, health records, money matters and party planning. It’s also got spaces for our own personal goals and tidbits of inspiration that will help remind you of what being a mom is about inspite of all the things about motherhood that make you want to scream. Hehe.
