Being a happy stay at home mom is perfect unless… you are a social maniac, just like myself. When you work at home and have little kids, then your typical day is a kind of never-ending Groundhog Day. Same schedule, same duties and, above all this, the biggest part of a day you spend inside the house. You live your life mostly inside four walls and the lack of communication with someone apart from your family members is drastic! Women who work at the office at least have their colleague around, to chat and discuss their day, but you only have your kids and husband. This is gorgeous, but not enough, if you are an active and sociable person.
In this case the only solution I see is to find an online community of like-minded women. Mompreneurs or simply stay at home moms who have same thirst for communication and have lots of thoughts and experience to share. There are lots of social networks in the Internet, you can choose one or two according to your taste. And to make your choice easier, I’ve made a survey and created a list of 10 best sites for social networking for women.
