Did you see the segment this morning about Digital Moms on The Today Show today? If you missed it you can watch it HERE. Laura Fortner from Cafe Mom along with a mommy blogger (I don’t know her blog, does anyone know who she is?) talk about the different reason’s why moms are online these days.
Sometimes I feel like maybe I spend too much time online. Some days I jump on and off a million times in between what me and my girls are doing. After watching this I realize that I’m not alone. I feel like it’s my way to stay connected to the outside world while being home with my girls. I love being a SAHM, but I do miss the social part of being in an office and I feel like I get that online. And the best part is I can be online while still in my jammies and without makeup!
I’ve made so many friends in the last 4+ years I’ve been a SAHM and I’m so grateful for all those friends. I even hope to meet a lot of them some day in my travels. It’s nice to know you have a support group that you can access almost anytime. And I feel it’s so much easier to be myself online than in real person sometimes. Believe it or not, I am shy in real life in certain situations. Not as much as I used to be but when put in a new social setting it takes me a little while to get comfortable. Not in the blogging world, it’s so much easier and I love that aspect. The part that I don’t like is it’s extremely ADDICTING! If I were single – no husband, no kids – I’d probably lose my job because I’d stay online all day and all night! LOL Unless I found a way to support myself completely online then it would be justified!
So check out the video and share with us what you love most about being online and/or what you like least about it. Also if you aren’t a member of Cafe Mom you should check them out too. Lots of moms just like us to help, share with and learn from.
