Mom Central invited me to try out Gather.com and tell you all about it. Oh.My.Gosh. This site is addicting! I’ve spent the last few days making friends, reading some incredible posts, uploading pictures and videos, and sharing some posts of my own.
Over the years, I’ve met many ladies online. Some of these women have become my very best friends. We’ve been talking for years, and even though we’re hundreds of miles away, we’re still always there for each other. We’ve taken trips just to visit each other, and our kids can name every single person in each others’ family. These ladies are so special to me, and I’m thankful for the website that brought us together.
Now, I’ve got another website to make new friends and hopefully build life-long relationships with other moms. Gather is a great way to meet other moms who are going through exactly what you are. Do you have a toddler who is in the thick of the terrible twos? (I do!) Then head on over to the Toddler Moms Group and talk about it. It’s nice to see that you’re not alone, and the ladies in there will provide support and advice to help you survive those terrible twos.
Gather hosts thousands of groups – topics include gardening, parenting, exercise, reading, cooking… the list goes on and on! I’ve already added a bunch of groups to my favorites, and I can’t wait to add more!
Want to know the best part about sharing things on Gather? You can earn reward points! Those points can be redeemed for gift cards to stores like Gap, Target, Home Depot, or you can opt for PayPal cash. The more stories, photos, tips, recipes, and advice you share with others in the community, the more points you can earn. So, you can buy yourself a latte, or you can put a new deck on your house. You get to decide how much content you want to publish. What a great incentive, though.
I can’t wait to see you over there and get to know you!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog and giveaway campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Gather. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
