Today, the Detroit Mommies were invited to our Local 4 WDIV News Station for a luncheon with the professional people behind the mighty Channel 4 News. We began at a round table with introductions and then moved right into lunch while we discussed what we do as Mommy Bloggers. They were, “picking our brains”, if you will.
It was a positive experience that helped me realize that the media is trying to understand what we do and how we do it. Our use of Twitter, Facebook, Whrrl and many other social media avenues were hot topics. Many Mommy Bloggers have discovered how to obtain loyal followers and have mastered these skills in a way that has some scratching their heads. It’s simple really, I believe just being a mom makes us trustworthy. It’s called Mom Power!
Mommy Bloggers come from all walks of life and no matter what we “blog” about, it seems we all have one thing in common, . . . we are Mothers! Being a parent makes us experts at TRYING. Trying to be a good parent! We are always looking for ways to make our childrens’ lives better without losing ourselves. Trying to find new and improved ways to make life simple but sometimes in the process, we accumulate difficulty. That’s what TRYING is. More importantly, we as mothers want to TRY and SHARE information as we gain it. We share our experiences because we know there’s some mother out there just a few steps behind or several blocks away that may benefit from our seasoned experience rather than making unnecessary mistakes on their own.
The POWER of numbers!
History has proven when women come together, we always make a difference. One woman can scream but several women can ROAR! Join in on some Mom Power in your own community or create it because the only requirement is being a mother with a desire to connect with other mothers. Providing support, information, entertainment and sharing real life experiences with our followers is what makes us Mommy Bloggers.
Let’s talk TRUST, shall we?
How does a Mommy Blogger gain trust from her followers and maintain that same trust? In my opinion, it’s about integrity. Get it or prepare to fail.
Mommy Bloggers and our professional experts at Local 4 WDIV all share a passion for gaining and sharing information and having them reach out to us today, brings a new avenue not only for Detroit Mommies but for our friends at Local 4 WDIV as well. We are looking forward to nurturing this new relationship.
