Mojito Mother Year in Review and Thank You

I started Mojito Mother in April, not really knowing what I had planned  for it or where I wanted it to go. I just knew I had to start it up.

Most of you who have been reading this blog now that my travel blog is where I devote most of my time and energy. I wish I had more time to put into Mojito Mother, and am focused on doing that for next year.

Right now I am just doing the best I can.

When I look back on my year with Mojito Mother, the thing that really jumps out at me as to why it has been a great move and a success is the people I have met as a result.

It has added a little something more attractive to what we do on y travel blog for advertisers etc and has given me a little bit more of a profile and good opportunities, but it has really been the people that has made it such a great experience.

I’m building a community of kind, caring and positive women (and men too) over on my fan page, who have been a great source of encouragement and inspiration to me,.

My RSS reader has exploded with so many inspiring mummy and personal blogs to read.

I’ve been to many networking events where I have had the pleasure to meet so many incredible women in person.

Mojito MotherA meditation session told me to, and I needed a space where I could write so many things I wanted to that didn’t quite fit with y travel blog.

Here are some lovely ladies I have had the pleasure of meeting offline and on who have been so supportive, encouraging, positive, uplifting, inspirational and helpful. All are doing wonderful things with their own blogs as well.

  • Kirri from Happy Mums at Home– always so positive and encouraging and a wise Mumma
  • Zoey from Good Googs– always heartfelt and touching writing and the cutest baby ever!
