A huge part of Not So Mommy… is the blog. And I am extremely grateful to every fabulous one who takes time to read the weekly blogs I publish. But Not So Mommy… is more than just a blog. In fact, there are 38 static pages full of valuable information on this site. Today, I want to talk about 9 of those pages—the resources pages.
In my three-year blogiversary post, I mentioned that I did quite a bit of research before beginning Not So Mommy… Several sources commented that a blog isn’t a blog without community. Because of this, they recommended creating a resources page in order to help connect your readers with others in the blogging world.
But I didn’t create resources pages simply because a book told me I should. One of my main goals here at Not So Mommy… is to offer support to the infertility, childless, childfree communities. And I believe resources pages are one way to fulfill this purpose.
The Original Resource Page
Initially, I created one resource page with a list of blogs and websites. Over the past three years, I added closed Facebook groups, plus books and other products relevant to the infertility, childless, and pet parent communities. In fact, the list had grown to over 70 linked resources.
The New Resources Pages
A few months ago, I decided the resources page needed to be revamped. In order to make sure that you, fabulous ones, can find the support you need, I felt more categories were necessary. So, I created a landing page for resources, which links to the following 8 different categories:
- Childless Not By Choice, By Circumstance, By Chance
- Childfree After Infertility
- Loss – Pregnancy/Infant Loss & Miscarriage Support
- Infertility – TTC, Surrogacy, Adoption, & Parenting After Infertility
- Women’s Health – Info about endometriosis & other chronic illnesses
- Dog Mom & Pet Parents
- Reviews – Thoughts on books, self-care products, dog mom stuff, & more…
- How to Survive & Thrive – Accepting & Embracing The What Is…
The various category pages include links to blogs, websites, podcasts, closed Facebook groups, books and products, plus posts I’ve shared here at Not So Mommy… The different pages also allow me to post trigger warnings. My hope is that this new organization strategy will help you more easily find the resources and support you need.
Beyond the Blog…
Over the coming months, I will write more “Beyond the Blog” posts in an effort to introduce you to all that Not So Mommy… has to offer. And if there is something you are searching for and/or would like me to add to this site, please feel free to contact me.
