Attended the annual event of the year in Portslade’s social calendar today – the village fete! Aside from home made cakes and bagging a bargain Whistles red dress (v savvy) i bumped into lots of local mums. So… feeling inspired tonight to blog about some fabulous social media sites for mums and mumpreneurs.
According to a Rapleaf study, while both sexes still use social networking sites in huge numbers, women are the ones holding down the fort. There’s been a lot of exposure for mummy bloggers, so Sony have decided to get the dads involved through the ‘here come the dads’ digidads project. So what online resources are available to social mums?
