I'm convinced that moms are taking over the Internet. Well, almost. Everywhere you turn, there is another mom starting a successful website business. The next thing you know she is being featured on Oprah, eating gourmet and living the life of luxury most of us can only dream about. Kudos to her!.Then there are moms like me.
Have I taken over the Internet? I only wish! I spend lots of time thinking about new online business ideas, pursuing my current online interests and of course dreaming of the chance to score big. I have also found that through my journey of about 5 years on the Web that I am not alone. Lots of us moms have the same "Internet Dream.".I have also found that the Web can be fun, challenging, fulfilling and somewhat of an obsession. Yes, I am a mom obsessed with the Internet, rather what I like to call a Mommy Web Head and I know I'm not alone.
How do you know if you're a Mommy Web Head? You can almost bet that you are a Mommy Web Head if?.1. Instead of clipping coupons for things you and your kids need, you scour the Internet and of course E-Bay to shop for similar products offered at local retail stores. What? Me shop offline? Never!.2. When you are at lunch with your mom friends, you butt in a perfectly good conversation about the latest deals on clothes with something like: "You know I found the most amazing web host the other day.
" Your friends look at you like they have no idea who you are.3. You enjoy the "online shopping experience" more than you do your local shopping mall.
4. Instead of taking time to read a good paperback, you browse various websites to find the latest e-books.5. When you hear the word "surfing" you immediately think of the Internet, not some far off beach and a surf board.
6. The thought of the Internet ever becoming extinct or obsolete makes you cry.7. You ask your cousin if she received the hilarious birthday card you just sent to her. When she replies that she hasn't and asks if you mailed it to her new address, you ramble off a list of email addresses.8.
Your idea of a good time is a great cup of coffee and a high speed Internet connection.9. The thought of dressing in "real" business attire makes you cringe. Working in your pajamas is a necessary part of any job description.10.
The thought of any business not having a company website makes you shutter.11. SERPs, Website Stats, HTML and Google PR are part of your everyday vocabulary, no matter where you are or who you are with.
