You know as well as we do that being a mom is hard. Without a doubt, it is the most rewarding job we will ever sign up for. But…it can be isolating, overwhelming and completely exhausting. In our endless quest to be the best mom possible, we can lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Pretty sure “it takes a village” was directed at moms.
Well, GBAMB wants to cultivate that village. We’d love to introduce you to Green Bay Area Moms Blog Community + Conversation. Our number one goal in creating GBAMB was to create a community on and offline through our content as well as our in-person events. Moms need moms to support and encourage one another. Community + Conversation is a place to connect–to truly connect–with the moms around you. Our hope is to create a safe place for moms from all walks of life to share stories and receive encouragement.
Community + Conversation is managed by Green Bay Area Moms Blog. Once we have a solid foundation, an additional goal of this group is to organize monthly playdates, get-togethers, and Mom’s Night Outs. Stay-tuned for more info.
The basic rules for our Community + Conversation Group are:
1. Be kind. We do not ask or expect everyone to agree all the time. Motherhood is the easiest thing to have an opinion about but the hardest thing to actually do. There will, however, be no toleration of any inflammatory, derogatory, or bullying talk. We want this to be a safe place for moms to share their stories, including struggles.
2. No personal promoting. We love seeing moms find their passions. Really we do, but this is not the place for personal advertisements. If you would like to advertise with GBAMB, please contact us at [email protected]
3. No buy/sell/trade. There are loads of b/s/t groups on Facebook. This group is not the place for selling furniture or baby clothes. Rather Community + Conversation is a place to meet other moms and grow friendships.
4. Be safe. Keep safety in mind, and please consider meeting at a public place when meeting someone new for the first time.
It is simple to join! There are no fees, no memberships, and no minimum attendance or participation requirements. When you visit the Green Bay Area Moms Blog Community + Conversation Facebook page, you simply click the “Join” tab or input your name into the “Add Members” field. Easy peasy.
