Mommy Networks & Online Communities
One of the largest international mommy networks is CafeMom. Remember Andrew Shue from Melrose Place? (I know I am not the only one who is anxiously awaiting the reprise of that fantastic show!) He is actually one of the founders of the company. Reason enough to at least give it a look and sign yourself up…
Get advice and support from moms. Share your thoughts, photos and more. Go to CafeMom
“CafeMom is a place for moms and moms-to-be to connect with one another. We invite you to take a look around CafeMom and join the moms who are already sharing, supporting, and having fun with one another at CafeMom.”
Create your own social network on any topic or look for one or two you can join.
Network and Re-connect
Connect and keep in touch with friends, former colleagues and those long lost college roommates. I think you will be surprised to discover whom you run into out there.

My husband is a big fan of Meebo and I bet you will be too. You can connect all of your IM accounts in one place. (It’s always good to support tech companies started by women too!)
