“What has been your favorite moment so far on World Moms Blog?”
I have come a long way from there. I got two editing offers after someone checked out my posts at WMB and another site (Awesome Cuisine). These have been some “Awww, is it me?” moments. The power of affirmations, like Jen mentioned in the Blogiversary post.
I have especially liked Dr. Jeanelle’s post on taking time out for oneself as a mom, and about the emotions when the child leaves the nest. That is one great post and mothers have to always be cautious about their individual identity. I always had that in mind and her post reinstated the same.”

“I have so many favorite moments with World Moms Blog. I think the first one was when Jen replied my email to say, “We’d love to have you!”
The other was when Jen came out as Jen, shedding her Veronica Samuels persona. I loved that she felt comfortable enough to be her true self.”

“I am remembering my first post last December, Two Halves Do Not Always Equal A Whole .This was the first time I have ever shared my writing with the whole world, and I was choosing to start by opening up about the challenges I was having with my own self-confidence after having my second child. So many risks, but I put it out there, and I got such supportive feedback. I loved WMB instantly, as a creative outlet and as a supportive mom-based network. I’ve learned so much from everyone and hope I have given back something as well. Cheers ladies!”

“WMB was my introduction to the world of mommy blogging. It has been:
- a comfort to read other moms experiencing similar feelings and situations (like Angela Y’s post about weaning),
- educational to learn about things like family leave benefits in other countries (like Asta Burrows’ post about family leave in Norway),
- inspirational to see ideas on how to get creative with your children (like Courtney Capallo’s post about making art every day),
- moving to share memories (like the Friday Question post about memories of our fathers), and
- wonderful to be able to share laughs – kids say the funniest things!
The other unexpected perk? It’s helped me make connections with moms that I might never have otherwise. How great is that?!”
