Café Mom is a great online community that was designed specifically for moms. There are many places online where people can get together, lots of forums to choose from, but Café Mom is a place for women to connect and share their adventures of motherhood. More than just an online meeting place, Café Mom is a social networking site, not unlike MySpace or Facebook, however it is reserved specifically for mothers who would like to network together.
The average age of the Café Mom member is between twenty and forty years old, and the majority of members are parents with kids living in the home. One of the features that I like best is that the site is divided into so many groups applicable to women. You can upload photos of your babies and even participate in cute kid contests. There are numerous polls that you can take and some include baby names, fashion, beauty, politics, love, sex, and health.
New moms will find that they can ask any question that they have and immediately receive an answer from experienced moms. Sometimes it can be embarrassing for new moms to ask their most puzzling questions, and having a support system is vitally important. Café Mom is a great resource for those who might feel a bit isolated or would simply appreciate the ability to ask an experienced mother any question that they have, day or night.
The groups are undoubtedly the most popular feature on Café Mom. Created by mothers, for mothers, the groups cover topics from arts and crafts and health issues to parenting teenagers and cooking. One group in particular is for young mothers. The ages range between 16 and 25. Having an online resource is a great tool for young, teen moms to have. There is no doubt that Café Mom has enabled many women, regardless of their age, to network, share, grow, and learn from each other. When choosing a group, you can view the amount of members that the group has, view the group owner, and view the groups website address.
You can also create your own Café Mom web page. This is your own space where you can add widgets, photos, and make sure that your unique personality is clearly expressed. It’s free to sign up and you can even subscribe to a freebies list, where you’ll receive plenty of new offers as they become available.
