New Beginnings for Little Things in Common

  • New beginnings

    I started Little Things in Common 18 months ago with as much passion for the cause as I have today. I wanted to create a place where parents could be themselves and find other parents they could talk to, relate to and share parenthood with.

    I wanted us to be able to meet people who shared more things in common than just having a baby. I am proud of our community, but I'm also excited about Little Things in Common's next phase.

    I'm handing over Little Things in Common to a new caretaker. Why? Because I want it to be Better than it already is. I want there to be more members so that there's more chance you'll meet your online kindred mum or dad friends . I want there to be more interaction so that when you jump online there is a buzz of conversation you can be part of. I need someone with a more appropriate skill set to take this on and I've found it in Little Things in Common's new owner Debbie Rossi.

    Debbie is passionate about helping parents connect and full of fresh ideas to make Little Things in Common the community we all want it to be.

    Obviously it's with mixed feelings that I hand over the reins but I am absolutely positive this is the right move for all of us.

    Before I go I want to say the biggest most heartfelt thank you to all of you. I cannot believe the amazing people I have met along the way. The mums and dads I've chatted to all through the day and night online and many I've been lucky enough to meet in person. The members who go above and beyond to make Little Things in Common the fabulous community it is. I've been met with nothing but support and kindness on this wonderful adventure and I cannot wait to see all that Little Things in Common becomes. Only now I'll be the member and not the creator!

    Best wishes, Stacey

    Please join me in welcoming Debbie and here's a few words from Debbie....

    Firstly, I would like to say hello to everyone. I feel very excited and blessed to be taking over such a thriving and important online community for parents.

    I am a mother to 4 children, Alivia 13, Sofia 12, Emidio 10 and Carina 7. I am also the author of Beyond The Schoolyard, a book about overcoming the effects of schoolyard bullying.

    One of the main reasons why I am taking on this community is that when my children were little, I always struggled to find that connection with other mothers, and looking back I wish I had a community like this. I believe that a happy Mum equals a happy family, which is what this community encourages; Mums (and Dads) to connect with other likeminded Mums (and Dads) which will ultimately help Mums to feel happier within themselves and have a flow on effect to their children and families.

    I have big visions for LTIC, to take this to an even bigger level to allow for you to have more people to connect with, learn from, share with and ultimately grow with.

    Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you to Stacey for developing LTIC and for entrusting it to me to take it over. All your support and encouragement has made this possible. Thank you Stacey.

    I can be contacted at [email protected] for any suggestions, queries or even just to say hello.
