I have been blogging for a year. Quite honestly, I was aimlessly blogging. I love the writing. I love the online friends. I love the online community. But, I was blogging really for no particular reason.
I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason. I figured if I continued to do what I love then something...ANYTHING would come of it. In the meantime, I was writing, making friends and having fun.
A few weeks ago my wandering the internet without purpose changed.
I found a reason (other than self-entertainment) to blog.
Our story starts several months ago when Holly is making plans to meet some
other awesome bloggers that would be congregating in Dallas. The emails had been flying between all interested bloggers and arrangements were being made.
I sent out an email saying that I could help pick up people from the airport since I live a short distance from DFW airport. One of the other attendees, Shauna emailed me back asking me where I live. I wrote back that I live in Flower Mound. Shauna wrote back that she did too.
Shauna lives in Flower Mound too.
We live a few miles from each other.
We met for a playdate. We saw each other again during the fabulous weekend of blogger bliss. I need to repeat that the weekend was a fabulous weekend of blogger bliss.
Then one day the idea came.
I wanted to do something local.
I called up Shauna and we met for breakfast...
I know! I know! And I ate the WHOLE thing.
Over that french toast was born a website and social network for moms in our area. We recruited a third party and have been in constant motion since then.
And here it is!
I am so excited to introduce:
The website is up and going. We have made great progress...still a few kinks to iron out.
If you or someone you know lives in the North DFW area, please join our social network through the website's "connect" button. We are concentrating on Argyle, Bartonville, Double Oak, Flower Mound and Highland Village, but are happy to have you join if you live a bit further out.
And for those of you that don't live close, please move here ASAP...
When I am not here.
Burb Mom is a website for moms in the North Texas suburbs of Dallas and Fort Worth.
Please visit me in the Metroplex!
