Digital Moms of the Week – Liz Gumbinner and Kristen Chase
We’re so excited to kick-off our Digital Mom of the Week series where we will be featuring Digital Moms each week who are doing incredible and amazing things online. The digital space is filled with moms who, each day, share a piece of themselves’ either through their blog, their Twitter feed, their Facebook status, their videos, their podcasts, their Etsy pages or all of the above! It’s the sharing and the connecting and the engaging in such authentic, real and fabulous ways that make many digital moms so successful.
We can’t wait to introduce you or re-introduce you to some extraordinary digital moms, doing extraordinary things!
We wanted to feature Liz and Kristen because they coming with a double wow-factor.
Individually through their blogs, Liz at Mom 101 and Kristen at Motherhood Uncensored, they have, on their own, created such an impressive readership base. What makes their blogs so desirable to read and allows readers to connect with them is that they are honest, real, and raw about their lives. They let you in. They open their doors, and pull you right into their personal story on their blog, and as a reader… you love it, you want more. If you’re looking for the “key” or the “secret” to creating a blog that will be successful and read by many, look to these ladies and see how they do it. The beauty is in the truth of their lives. They share. They connect. They engage. They simply tell their story. Their passionate about their children and being a mom, and this exists and is evident in every word they publish.
As a duo, they have created the uber-successful, fabulous and cool (no pun intended), Cool Mom Picks and Cool Mom Tech. We love a good duo digital mom story because it shows what can be done and accomplished when you have a partner (or partners) in crime. The digital space is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and there’s no closing time. Finding a great business partner, is something we both firmly believe in and talk about in our book. In fact, we’re convinced our Digital Mom Handbook never would have happened if we didn’t team up to make it a reality.
So we’re absolutely intrigued by and love seeing a team of digital moms being so successful creating such amazing, relevant and needed content for other moms. It’s inspiring. Cool Mom Picks and Cool Mom Tech are such great resources for moms, and they have truly set the bar when it comes to creating resources online that moms can go to for a daily destination.
In our opinion, what makes these ladies so successful – individually and together – is their passion, their drive, their dedication and their devotion to their content. As two digital moms who have truly blazed a trail for more and more digital moms (and more to come!), we are so excited to feature Liz and Kristen this week!
We were honored to have Liz and Kristen contribute to our Digital Mom Handbook by sharing a story about their “business” partnership, working together and how they make it work so beautifully!
