Website Review: Mom Blogger’s Club

If you are mom and a blogger then you should definitely take a peak into the clubhouse of the Mom Blogger’s Club (MBC) and go on in. I have been a member for over three months and it is a great place to ask questions and meet other bloggers. The Mom Blogger’s Club is the social network arm of The Mom Salon and is founded by Jennifer James. I have had a little bit of personal correspondence with Jennifer, read her blog posts and her participation in the club and found that she is one of the most encouraging and unpretentious bloggers I have ever met.

The Mom Blogger’s Club allows you to have your own profile page where other moms can leave you comments and you can share news and post pictures and add friends. In the “We’re Talkin’” section there are general questions that are open to anyone to answer. You can also join groups or start your own group based on your specific interests.

Some questions are asked within a group and you have to be a member of that group to answer the question. All you need to do is click “join this group” unless the group is closed. The questions are about everything blogging like who designed your blog, what turns you off on a blog, and what your husband or significant other thinks about your blogging. There is also a section about Motherhood, Parenting, & Family.

The design of MBC is incredibly easy to navigate. Their front page has a lot of information without seeming to be cluttered. I found it simple to set up my account and to start meeting other people.

In some networks I have felt shy about sending friend requests and “adding friends,” but I don’t find that here. Most people are willing to help you and be your friend. It is up to each of us how much we want to network and connect with each other. Even if you don’t ask questions or add friends you will still learn a lot about blogging from the discussions.

Note: You must use the “www.” when typing in their url (www.mombloggersclub.com) or you won’t be able to get to the site.

Are you a member of Mom Blogger’s Club? How do you like it? Are you active? Are you sick of joining every social network under the sun?

    I signed up with MBC about a month or so ago. It’s the first community that I’ve joined and I loved the idea of it. It has a great layout, very easy to navigate.

    To be honest though, I’ve been a bit disappointed by it. Right when I first joined, I noticed that at times the ‘Discussion Boards’ were a bit negative…such as topics centered around things that we DON’T (instead of what we DO) like on OTHER people’s blogs?! Seemed catty to me.

    With that said, I’m still hanging around there. Hopefully, I just got off on the wrong foot :)

    I love it, and I am so glad you are spreading the word! It has been a joy being a part of the MBC community!

    @Bekkah – Yeah, there was one discussion about whether or not we like music on blogs. There are some fun questions. Personally, I just love talking about blogging.

    @brittany – I was hoping you would comment. I have seen you around those parts. I think MBC will only get better with more users. I think it has been a nice mix of older and newer bloggers.

    I joined MBC a while ago but with all the twitter, plurk, utterz, facebook, linked in….I AM kinda getting tired of all the social media…it’s like having multiple children needing constant attention. I mean I love the idea, but I’m barely keeping up with my own blog and all the other ones I read.

    @Myra – I have seen you around those parts. :) You may be interested in the Product Review group if you want some more reviews on the web about MaBS. I am apart of that group and some of them seem pretty eager.

    @Evelyn Kim – I hope you like it! If you join let me know where your profile is. :)

    @Jojo – I hear ya! I hardly ever visit facebook, and I haven’t joined Plurk because I don’t want something else. I keep twitter to only my personal friends and haven’t jumped in with all the other mom bloggers on it yet. Oh.. and if it weren’t for my Google Reader I could barely keep up with all the blogs I want to.

    Hey I actually found the Mom Crowd through Mom Bloggers! I usually stick to my little bloggin world, but I am just now branching out and checking out other people’s blogging worlds – it’s been fun. But I definitely do not keep up with all the social networking sites, they drive me nuts.
