I am taking a break from the non-stop socializing to blog about The Internet Mommy Book Launch party. The book is”inspiring interviews and stories from mothers who work and play online- How Social Networks Influence the Way Moms Make Money, View LIfe, Find Friends and Raise Kids“. The book does a great job of sharing stories and information about how moms are taking their networking skills online.
Kimberly Clayton Blaine is the author of the book. When I asked her what inspired her to write the book she explained: “all the support from other women I met online elevated the work that I was doing. I was once a lone star – now I support others and they support me.”
I first found out about Kimberley Clayton Blaine when I viewed her vlog: TheGoToMom.TV. I found the videos to be engaging – with mom stories I relate to. Then she joined the LA Moms Blog to share her stories about being a mom in Los Angeles.
Sharing stories online has become the new “moms group”, and the best thing is that you don’t need to leave the house. But many of us “Internet Moms” maximize our online social networks by meeting up at live events. The Internet Mommy Book launch party is a perfect example of that – all the moms here have such interesting stories on how they participate in either blogging, writing for websites, Twittering, Facebooking and other types of social media.
I know many of the moms that contributed to the book, and I am honored to have a section of my own – that involves Twitter and a pillow fight between my boys (for more details, you will just have to check out “The Internet Mommy“).
Back to the party, I am enjoying catching up with the LA Moms Bloggers in attendance, meeting moms that I only knew online and some that I did not know but will now be following.
There are more pictures on the way with the other fun ladies in attendance…
