Just got a really exciting email from Megan and Sasha, Sally and Alysha of the SocialMoms team.  The SocialMoms 3.0 roll out, that's been in the works for almost a year, has finally launched and will be continuing to roll out new features in the weeks and months ahead.  

How perfectly timed this major mom blogging industry announcement is ahead of BlogHer 11, the largest blogging conference of the year for women like you and me who blog -- and the brands targeting us moms in particular!  Megan, I look forward to celebrating this major mommy blog leadership stepping stone in person next week in San Diego.

Effective immediately, the core networking site has moved from to the new site address which is  For existing Social Moms members like me, I can tell you that your profile and settings will remain the same, since I just logged in to the new site just now to check it out. 

When you log in yourself, you'll see that you can easily get to the network by just clicking the network's tab in the navigation bar on top.  New members:  all you have to do is go to the brand new Social Moms site to sign up and join our community.

Based on my own initial experience today, I think the new site is sleekly designed and much easier to navigate than its predecessor.  New channels on the network include Tech, Health, Style, Green, Entertainment, Food, Money, Politics, and Reading.  This makes the new SocialMoms site, in my opinion, the CNN of the mom social media networking world.

How to Join the My SocialMoms Rewards Loyalty Program
It's as easy as going to SocialMoms and then from there connecting  to the network via your Facebook account to log in to the new site.  As promised, the whole process of signing up for the loyalty program, should only take you minutes.   All U.S. residents are invited to join today to start earning points that can be redeemed for Gift Cards, Paypal payments, charitable donations, and more.

Get started by simply liking Social Moms on Facebook or following them on Twitter and you will be immediately enrolled.  You can earn your first 500 points just by adding your profile info to the loyalty program.  Then continue earning more points by doing things such as sharing content by and for moms from Facebook and Twitter, writing quality articles for one of the new channels, by participating in their sponsored blogging opportunities and more.

Megan Calhoun, the founder of the original SocialMoms -- which gone through several major redesigns during the past few years -- says that the site is new so get ready for a few bumps as they grow.  She also explains that the ability to earn points for the SocialMoms Insider app will be expanding over the coming weeks and months. To stay up-to-date with all the activity and new opportunities, Megan's staff will be producing a weekly newsletter describing ways for you to earn My SocialMoms Rewards points.
