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.
