Mom bloggers have positive impact on the health of Canadians

Update: Thank-you for all your support, I was one of the 4 winners!!!


What is your biggest parenting struggle with your child right now?

Within hours of posting this question on Facebook 40 moms had their voices heard.

Women from all around the world are connecting like never before.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Preamble to the Constitution of the World Health Organization as adopted by the International Health Conference, New York, 19-22 June, 1946; signed on 22 July 1946 by the representatives of 61 States (Official Records of the World Health Organization, no. 2, p. 100) and entered into force on 7 April 1948.
The Definition has not been amended since 1948.

Mom bloggers care. Whether it be a tweet, status update, or post about someone having a rough day mom bloggers are there to comment or lend a listening ear. Everyday I see that someone is experiencing grief, frustration, financial struggles, health issues, loss, anxiety and daily living decisions (what to make for supper) etc.

These struggles are REAL and exist just as they always have, but the best part is that I also see happiness, friendship, encouragement, support, common ground, testimonies and a listening ear. Being there for one another is a great outlet for women to feel supported and secure in who they are and gives them a general sense of well being.

Women who may never associate in their daily lives are coming together as a community to support one another.

Mom bloggers share. They are passionate and it comes across in what they say.  They make the unspeakable – speakable.  Stigma begins to be broken down when mom bloggers talk openly about mental illness, depression, discipline, dieting, exercise, faith, breastfeeding, education, finances and the like.

Mom bloggers impact not only our country, but the world. When a mom blogger loves something you bet she shares about it. Whether it be a product, a recipe, a service, a new restaurant or a great article you know that if she loves it she will talk about it. Chat groups, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, online communities, instant messaging, comments, forums, StumbleUpon, YouTube, Digg or LinkedIn etc, are all ways that mom bloggers use their voice to make a difference. Corporations are listening because they know that moms trust moms. Mom bloggers have a far reaching voice!

What is one word you would use to describe mom bloggers? I asked this question on Twitter and Facebook and within minutes this is what I heard….


These characteristics are true of most mom bloggers. With or without knowing it mom bloggers have an impact on the health of not only Canadians, but women and families world wide.

What do you think? Can mom bloggers have a positive impact on the health of others?

Here is a shout out to some amazing Canadian mommy bloggers.

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.

Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
