Citymumcountrymum blog to ease stress of parenting.June 25, 2014 3:15am
No one ever said raising children would be a breeze, but local mother Jaimi King is certainly doing her part to make it a little easier.
As co-founder of the family and lifestyle blog citymumcountrymum.com, Mrs King is spreading knowledge and advice on the highs and lows of parenting with first-time and experienced parents.
Running the blog and instagram account with friend Rebecca Price, the duo has compiled personal experiences, friendly tips, reviews, competitions and advice with a particular focus on businesses and activities relevant to the Kyabram, GV and Melbourne region.
Mrs King said the blog was an outlet for her to help first-time parents navigate the confusing job that is parenting as she remembered how daunting the task could be.
‘‘People can tap into real life experience from the blog, they can check and see that they are not the only ones going through this,’’ she said.
‘‘If you are stuck and feeling alone, you can check the blog and we can help you or we can help you to get help. ‘‘With my first child, I didn’t tell anyone I was struggling and my husband had to figure it out, so I have been through it and anything we can do to help, we want to.’’
On maternity leave from her job at Goulburn-Murray Water, Mrs King said a focus on local businesses and events was a big part of the blog’s goal.
‘‘Basically, we want to help out others and we are really not doing this for any other reason besides that,’’ she said.
‘‘Essentially, I have come back to Kyabram and have seen that it can get a bit quiet for parents and I really wanted to promote the town and what it’s doing. It’s a great place to live and raise a family, so that’s what the blog was created for.
‘‘We want to get businesses involved to promote them and the towns activities that are family friendly, so we will run competitions and keep people constantly informed on what is going on.’’
Citymumcountrymum.com also supports local charity organisation the Caroline Chisholm Society by donating goods that are reviewed, tried or purchased and shown on the blog.
The Caroline Chisholm Society is a non-political, non-denominational charity that supports families facing dire circumstances.
