so my favorite discovery ive found for moms on the internet has to be Connecting Moms. i would describe it as an online community similar to MySpace or Cafe Mom . it has all the usual features like groups, games, blogs, etc. my favorite is the product reviews. this is really the only thing i go to the site for. i have won many great products from this website and i dont have to pay orfill out any forms or take any surveys. all i did was join and create a profile! the Product Review section has a new product every week. i get email updates to let me know when they have something new. click on a product that is 'taking applications' and join that group. simple! that products company will choose the winner(s) and notify you and mail you their product to review. free! sometimes when you join they may also require you to post a comment or picture, something in addition to joining. ive havent had to do much more than join. I won 3 pair of Halloween print BabyLegs legwarmers! in that case they requested that you post a picture or two of your child in a costume and put link to the gallery in the comment section. i always make it a point to leave a comment showing my interest and need for the product. i dont know if ithelps in their decision of winners but it cant hurt! in my 8months as a member of Connecting Moms ive won 6 products so far! ive reviewed Dr. Blooms Chewable Jewels teething jewelry, a belly casting kit from Proud Body Pregnancy Art, BabyLegs halloween print legwarmers, and multiple books. Mama Knows Breast: A Beginners Guide to Breastfeeding which i sadly am still trying to finish is a great read. Nolo's Busy Family's Guide to Money, Get It Together, and Parent Savy. Check out my reviews under the member name desotogurrl.

the Product review section is good for more than just winning free things! see what tried and tested moms have to say about products and how they rate them before you buy! you can even tell them what youd like to review!

Whether you're a momprenuer or stay-at-home mom (or maybe even a working mom who plays online at work like i did) you'll meet a other moms just like yourself or win fun stuff on ConnectingMoms.
