We’re so excited to announce that we’re being featured on the SITS Girls site today! In case you’re not familiar with this community, the SITS Girls connects 40,000 women bloggers who are looking to engage with each other. One such way is by introducing us to a different member blog each day, providing a kind of “best of” for that blog. And today is our day!
If you’re new to merelymothers, visiting from SITS, thanks so much for stopping by! Merelymothers was born out of Evanthia and Sarahlynne’s conversations about motherhood, the transition out of the workforce, and our marriages. We started to realize that we really wanted to address some issues that went a little deeper than your traditional mommy blog, especially our sense that stay-at-home moms have become the lowest caste of modern American society. Not that everything we write is super deep and heavy, but we tend to be analytical women who really think before we act and use our backgrounds as professional educators to influence our parenting decisions. We love engaging our readers in debates about gender, marriage, and parenting styles. The spicier the discussion, the better!
Another one of our favorite things to consider as stay-at-home moms to toddlers is fashion. We believe strongly that fashion can provide moms—especially stay-at-home moms—with a sense of self and a sense of pride. And the difference between sweatpants and a stained tee-shirt, and those amazing outfits you see on Pinterest is just a little effort and awareness.
We’ve written about our how our views on fashion have changed since becoming mothers, we’ve featured fellow bloggers and cleaned out our own closets during our Style Week, and we’ve even started following runway trends to see how we can translate these styles into something moms can actually wear. Now, we’re looking to expand our focus on fashion by adding a new member to the merelymothers team!
- The latest runway trends and how moms can wear them
- Budget-friendly deals on key wardrobe pieces
- Amazing self-created, what-to-wear collages
- Quick and easy hair and makeup ideas
Sound intriguing? Ideally, this addition to the merelymothers team would be:
- A woman
- A mom
- Someone with blogging/writing experience
- Someone with excellent grammar and writing skills
- Someone who’s got a strong sense of aesthetics and presentation
- Someone with a passion for the fashion!
If you or someone you know is interested in collaborating with us, please contact Evanthia and Sarahlynne at merelymothers [at] gmail [dot] com. Be sure to tell us a little about yourself, send us your best outfit collage, and include a link to your site (if applicable). We’d love to hear from you!
