Last fall I received an intriguing invitation sent to my blog e-mail addressed to Blonde Mom. Never mind that I was well overdue for highlights and that they didn’t know my real name, I was nonetheless honored to be asked to provide feedback for DivineCaroline, a fabulous new women’s website launched today by Real Girls Media.
It was exciting to have a small part in helping shape the development of this new destination on the web. I’m old enough to recall a time when the Internet was just a pie in the sky sounding futuristic pipe dream that conjured up images of big whirring computers and nerds with pocket protectors. Now I’m a blogging mama who relies on the Internet for news and information on everything from booster seat safety to diagnosing my toddler’s rash. The most welcome surprise, however, has been how technology has helped create an online social network, especially for moms.
Fellow Nashvillian Lindsay Ferrier, who blogs at the wickedly funny Suburban Turmoil, is also an advisor, as are a whole team of incredibly talented women writers, entrepreneurs, academicians, and philanthropists. I’ll be publishing some of my writing on the Divine Caroline site and they are inviting women like you, you, and you to register, write, and publish your unique stories. This is a great opportunity for you to have an online forum to share a story or a review. Real voices count. Let yours be heard.
So what are you waiting for? Go check out the new online community at Divine Caroline. You’ll be glad you did.
Pssst: I wrote this piece for Divine Caroline where I admit to being a former mommy snob who once thumbed her nose at full-time daycare and holiday cardigans. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
