Theta Mom Community

When I first began blogging there were many communities I joined that brought me some of the best bloggy friends a girl could ask for. But it took a lot of “work” on my part in finding these bloggers to really get an idea for who they were and what they blogged about. At TMC, I cut the guess work out for you because each Listing provides a very specific blog description so you will already have a good idea of the bloggers you would like to network with, so come here daily to see new listings and find new blogs to connect with. The more active you are in this community, the more you will get out of it.

Theta Mom Community is a space that encourages social networking and fosters the support of bloggers through a community all its own. TMC, the cornerstone that brings bloggers together and reinforces the idea that successful blogging is based on a solid foundation of a supportive network. TMC would not be possible without your support. I can’t thank each of you enough for welcoming me into your life and I look forward to continuing the journey with you! When I first began my blog, I had a vision of what I wanted it to be so I immediately created a mission. Here is an excerpt from that mission which I wrote and published before I had even one follower:

“I began this website as an opportunity to share my experiences as a mother. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to begin the line of communication and form a sense of community among Theta Moms everywhere. Another hope is that you, a fellow Theta Mom, are inspired by this mission and engage in the challenge of revolutionizing the way we think about our role as mothers. I created this website to use as a platform to begin the dialogue…

These words prove that even from the very first day of my blogging journey, I knew I wanted to connect with other women. I wanted to begin a conversation that other mothers could relate to and I wanted to form a sense of real community. I am honored to be surrounded by such amazing, talented women and I can’t tell you enough how excited I am to share this space with you.

TMC is my space, your space, our space. I want this to be a place where you meet other bloggers that shares similar interests; I want this space to be an area in which you are able to “find” other bloggers and they can “find” you; I want you to re-connect with someone you maybe haven’t seen in weeks; I want you to network with other bloggers with whom you instantly relate to; I want you to find a new tweep to follow on Twitter; I want this to be a space you will come back to again and again, to see who’s been added and search through the listings to make even more connections.

So, how does TMC work and what’s in it for you as a blogger?

As a member of TMC, you will have the opportunity to create a Listing describing your blog and interests along with a direct link to your site. It’s permanent. Your listing will be here once you add it for the entire blogosphere to see and that’s exactly the point. I want you to have the ability to network and find other bloggers from a community that supports me.

You will be eligible to guest post at the TMC Network, another space dedicated for bloggers to continue the dialogue, ask questions, make suggestions, share links and of course, network!

You will also be supported because the mission here is built on the foundation of community and that’s what communities do – provide support.

So, do you want to become a member of TMC? Of course you do! But I do have some rules and any Listing that does not follow these rules will be deleted without prejudice.

TMC MEMBERSHIP RULES:

1. You must be a blogger not a business. {If you are a business looking for a sponsorship or partnership with Theta Mom®, please visit my business site Theta Mom® Media and email your requests. If you are looking for ad space or rates for your business to be featured in The Marketplace, please refer to the advertising information.}

2. Subscribe to Theta Mom. {You need to follow the very community you would like to be a part of.}

3. Wear the TMC button on your site with pride. {This button is not linked to my homepage. Rather, the landing page is this space. Think of TMC as its own website on its own domain. When this button is placed in the blogosphere, all traffic will come to THIS page with YOUR listings. The more bloggers that display the button, the more opportunity others will find TMC and want to join. And the more listings that are created, the better the chances are for you to meet new bloggers and network. So grab the code for the TMC button found on my right sidebar and copy/paste the html on a non-scrolling area of your blog.}

4. Add your Listing in 4-5 sentences, linking the title of your blog NOT your name. {This is your claim to fame – in the comment section, you will place the exact TITLE of your blog where it says name, add your email (which will not be published), include the url of your HOME page and then post your Listing in 4-5 sentences in the comment area. This is the real deal, so be sure to choose the 4-5 sentences that best describe you and your blog. Try to really articulate what it is you want others to know about your site. Once you add your Listing, this is how others will find you so you want to make sure your blog description fits both you and your blog well.

5. Tell a friend about TMC and/or tweet, email, blog and share on Facebook! {The more buzz that is created about TMC, the bigger it will grow which will provide more opportunities for networking and making connections.} You can copy and paste the following: Want to grow your readership & network with other bloggers? Visit #TMCommunity & get your blog listed @ThetaMom http://is.gd/9am40 Pls RT

6. Use TMC to your advantage. {Return often to TMC to see who has been added, find new bloggers to connect with and go comment on their blog. Be sure to tell them you found them through TMC! Follow someone on Twitter as well and use this space to help you grow as a blogger and reach a bigger audience. The more you visit TMC and the blogs of its members, the bigger your own readership will grow.}

So now aren’t you excited to get your blog listed?! I am so glad you are here and that you continue to support this mission.

    I’m a happily married working mama of two young kids, infant twins, two cats, a flock of chickens, and one large dog… Life is good! Motherhood is a full-contact sport; sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. I am funny, irreverent, and sarcastic — not for the faint of heart. This isn’t a gross-out blog, but the inherent danger of parenting involves discussing more bodily fluid than I ever thought possible.

  2. says

    Midwest “Mom”ments is a diary chronicling the joyful, overwhelming, crazy, sometimes frustrating, journey that is parenthood. It’s also grown to encompass other elements of my life, like dealing with my aging parents, getting up on my soapbox and an outlet for creative writing.

  3. says

    Just a small town girl…wait no, that is a Journey song. Although I do live in a small town. I am a wife, a mother, a teacher, and a writer. We have joys and we have struggles. Just like you.

    I blog about being a mom of two sons, experiencing two miscarriages, battling anxiety, ppd, and antenatal depression, and all the happy times we have in between.

  4. says

    New York City mama of 2.5-year-old boy/girl twins and one 4.5 year old girl. I write honestly — and with poor attention to grammar — about being a mom, a wife and a woman all in one day. I have an MFA in poetry; I am a certified spin instructor. Writing goes well with coffee and wine.

  5. says

    Time Crafted (verb) The act of altering personal time to include creativity, joy & smile worthy moments.

    Creativity comes in all forms, from fiction writing to photography to altered art to paper crafting to painting to art journals to the ideas books spawn to friends’ handiwork from sewing to knitting to crocheting to kidlets’ crafting. And in between those creative moments, mojo, and inspiration, I like to find the little things in life that make me smile from family time to our kids to dandelion bouquets.

  6. says

    The Kir Corner is my comfortable place where I write about my true loves: My husband, my Twin Sons, Writing Fiction, Shoes and Cupcakes.

    When you add celebrating other mommies, bringing a voice to infertility and battling firbromyagia while enjoying too much television, shopping and traveling you have a comfy space where I’m always happy to invite friends in to visit.

    The Literal Mom encourages parents, through humor, wit and sometimes tears, to think about parenting. If we all think about how we’re parenting, then we’ll all be better. Win/win – in your own house and society in general.

    I also like to have fun – with life, parenting and blogging – so that fun part shows up time and again too.

  10. says

    I’m a 40-something, married, SAHM to 2 sets of twins. My blog I’m Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor is where I chronicle the amusing adventures of motherhood and marriage, with a heavy dose of sarcasm and humor. Life is short and a sense of humor is key.

    My name is Courtney. I’m a Military Wife & Mom turned entrepreneur and business owner.

This blog is a raw and honest look at my life as I fumble my way through motherhood, marriage, homeschooling and a career as a Graphic Designer, Professional Photographer & Novelist. (Did I mention I’m a bit of an over-achiever?)

  12. says

    I’m a wife, mom, stepmom, teacher, blogger, and lover of interior design. Making your house into a home is a journey… homes evolve, shift, and change over time. Join me on the journey and I’ll share DIY, decor inspiration, and tips to help you on your own journey. After all, home is where the heart is!

    We are a collection of parents writing not necessarily about what we know best, but at least what is immediately in front of us on a daily basis. Parenting has a steep learning curve, but one thing we know is this: It’s a heck of a lot more fun with other parents with whom you can laugh, celebrate, or commiserate. We love interaction with other parents. Comment on posts, email us, or submit posts for consideration on the site. Make this your community, too.

    Foodie, Mom, Farmer’s Wife and Family Manager… I wear a lot of hats, but it all seems to come down to Food & Family. Through our garden, to my kitchen and onto our table, it is all an adventure. This blog is a collection of moments in our lives, the food I create and enjoy as well as the products I can’t wait to share with readers. Come for the giveaways or recipes, but enjoy the adventure along with us.

    I’m Alison, a Malaysian mother of a 2 year old boy, with another on the way (due May 2012!), who frequently provide me with blog fodder, which in turns can be funny, touching, and always complete with mayhem. I also share tried and tested recipes (I love baking) and occasionally show off my (not so good) photography skills. Mama Wants This! co-hosts a monthly link up, called ‘Memories Captured’, where we ask bloggers to capture a memory for the month with a gorgeous photo and a few words.

    When you visit Sweetness of Life & Motherhood, you’ll find shared enthusiasm for life and writing candidly about it. Humor is revered. Imperfections are celebrated. What you won’t find is ordinary parenting how-to advice or promises of expertise. It’s not your ordinary mom blog. SweetnessOfLife.com

  25. says

    I’m one harried mom of two kidlets under the age of four just trying to safely navigate her way through parenting, playdates and a career. You just have to be able to laugh at things and mostly at yourself! Here we talk about kids, family, life, work and other randomness.

  26. says

    Jules Out Loud was created because sometimes I have things I want to say, but don’t feel they go with the flow of All You Need is Love, my first blog. Also, I don’t want my Grandma to read something where my language isn’t always sunshine and rainbows.

  27. says

    I am a mom of 3 year old twins and Alexander, our baby born with a very rare and serious chromosomal disorder. This blog is a love letter to my children, chronicling our good days and bad days. When they are older, I want them to look back and read the way things really were – and why we made the decisions we made. Because the reality of it is – Our life is different – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  28. says

    I’m a mom of TWO, a toddler and a newborn, who is learning that babies really are born with a personality and a mind of their own! My sons are currently teaching me everything I could ever need to learn about life- and I’m loving learning from them (even the lessons that involve no sleep!!). Looking forward to connecting with everyone on Sleeping Is For Losers!

I have a unique place on the web sharing the humor and joy of life stories on marriage, kids and everything else adding to the journey! I share my passions for writing, food and recipes, photography and love of sport, fitness and health. I just finished my first marathon and half-marathon.

  32. says

    What do Autism, special needs, freelance writing, working from home, losing weight, books, and being a mom to two boys have in common? They are all topics you will find at MommyToTwoBoys.com. Visits will leave you informed, frustrated, happy, celebrating, wondering, and maybe even crying, but hopefully most of all laughing.

  33. says

    Hi! I’m Kasey and I have 2 little girls, a crazy dog and a husband who works long hours. I use my blog as a place to share some of the things that go on in our hectic lives. I try to focus on the positive side of things, even if sometimes it’s quite difficult. Aside from the mommy stuff (which I can’t resist writing about), I share my struggles with losing weight, family issues, and just figuring out how to do it all and keep smiling!

  34. says

    I’m Jessica. Wife to 1, mom to 2 adorably insane girls and 2 dumb dogs. Officially addicted to Apple products. Vlogger, martini drinker, wordpress knowledgeable, and quilter. Writing about whatever comes to mind while not sleeping.

  35. says

    I’m a thirty-something Momma to three amazing little people and I live in Maryland, USA. I enjoy blogging about whatever comes to mind in the moment, though most of my posts center around my family, things I’m learning through them or opinionated ranting on various sensitive topics that pop up in the Mommy Blogging communities around the nets. My most passionate posts revolve around issues that arise during this amazing journey called Motherhood.

  36. says

    I’m Katie- Mom to a very talkative fashionista (I mean daughter) and a very talkative car/truck expert (I mean son), wife of a rock and roller, and Psychotherapist/Parenting Expert in Los Angeles. I write about parenting strategies, bullying, infertility, and just about everything in between. You can also catch me at Mommy Moment on Wednesdays and at moonfrye on Thursdays.

    I’m Melanie, a Christian working (girlie-girl) mommy of two rough and rowdy boys. As a Christian working mom, I often feel like an “oddball” so I try to use my blog to encourage EVERYONE — especially those who feel like they don’t “fit in”. I write about faith, family, organization, budgeting, giveaways, and more!

    I would love to connect with you and meet other bloggers! I love expanding my blog reading list! :)

    Hugs,
    Melanie

    6 Years to conceive, tens of thousands of dollars, high risk pregnancy, hip dysplasia, a baby in a body cast; late miscarriage, full time student, entrepreneur, Mom, wife… etc. etc. Things don’t always go as we may have planned, but they take us on the journey that is the life that has brought us together. And by golly, it’s been an amazing ride and there’s always room for one more; so come join us for a spin.

  39. says

    I have always dreamed of being a writer, little did I know that in my late thirties I would get the chance. The more I wrote random thoughts and snapshots about life, the more I heard from complete strangers that they could relate to my writings. Basic observations about what was going on in my life resonated with so many.
    I am a wife, mom, sister, daughter, Christian, entrepreneur, & oh yeah I am a GLASS HALF FULL kind of gal!

  40. says

    I believe Supermom is a myth, and the more we dispel that myth, the more comfortable we’ll be mothering from our own hearts. I believe in the absolute healing nature of laughter (people take themselves way too seriously). I am constantly on a journey of re-discovering myself through humor and writing. Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow you are a mother!

  41. says

    With Just a Bit of Magic… where I write about life, fun, food, and family. Because we all know that it takes a bit magic to make everything in life come together successfully when you work full time, are a wife, and a mom to four kids ages 2 – 16!

  42. says

    After years in the nonprofit sector, particularly in the areas of development and fundraising, I have decided to take what I know and love and share it with the world. I love tips, strategy, and news about nonprofits and small business ventures. With each day that goes by, I learn more and more that running a household is a lot like running a business, and visa versa. Being a mother requires wearing many hats, and has given me experience not only as a CEO, but as a bookkeeper, a communications person, an event planner, a secretary, and so much more!

  43. says

    This is where I go to write about the place I love to be most, home (well, besides a deserted island with a life time supply of chocolate…or a Swiss chalet, again with a life time supply of chocolate). I adore my family and have a passion for pretty things, good books, and a life well lived. Come along and join in on the adventure!
