I joined Gather.com some time ago. I find this site very helpful. I was able to:
– Meet people who share my interests — Mom to a kid, a preteen, and a teen.
– Connect around life experiences
– Talk about the news of the day
– Express yourself in writing, pictures, and video
– Make great friends — love this idea. You can never have enough friends!
Gather.com has created a vibrant and diverse social networking community where you can meet some amazing people literally gathered together around shared interests and unique passions. Gather hosts thousands upon thousands of groups and conversations on topics ranging from how to cope with your rambunctious toddler to creating a thriving organic garden; from books that you’ll want to stay awake all night reading to the latest pilates moves; and from cooking without recipes to taking the challenge of creating movie reviews in Haiku (tougher than you’d think!).
Best of all, on Gather you earn points for the content you contribute to the site, which can be redeemed for gift cards to stores like Home Depot, Gap, and Target, and even for PayPal cash. The more recipes, tips, stories and advice you share with others in the community, the more points you earn. Now that’s a great incentive!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog and giveaway campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Gather. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
