Christine Michel Carter does not write every post on the blog. In fact, she writes very few to provide other working mom writers a space to showcase their expertise and practical tips. It pays off: the blog was named the best working mom blog to follow for support, laughs, and advice!
If you’re looking for marketing exposure, to build credibility, improve your search engine rankings or a link to your blog for site traffic this is a great opportunity.
