SocialMoms.com (formerly SocialMoms.net) is one of my favorite websites. They have tons of great mom-focused articles as well as networking and rewards opportunities, unlike any other website I have come across. They have an engaged community and huge support network. Here are are some of my favorite socialmoms.com features.
SocialMoms goes above and beyond in the content department. They have numerous topic categories and update their content daily. All their content is brought straight from SocialMoms members. So even if you aren’t a professional blogger, you can have your content featured on their page. My favorite category (of course!) is the “green” category. I have found myself addicted to checking their page daily for new articles. Needless to say, they are bookmarked!
SocialMoms has an amazing rewards program for their readers.
Right now, there are some ways you can earn points:
Share Great Content By Moms and For Moms on Facebook and Twitter. You can earn points by using their specially marked Twitter and Facebook buttons to share links to useful content with your friends, fans, and followers. You literally earn points for doing something you would probably do anyway!
