How to join the Stapleton Moms Yahoo! Group
**UPDATE - 2014***
Stapleton Moms has moved from the Yahoo group platform to BigTent. It's been a great move! In order to join us, find the 'Member Login' box on the right side of our front page. Click 'Not a member? Join us today!' and you're on your way!
I get lots of questions about the Stapleton Moms Yahoo! Group from folks who are moving here and find this blog. Welcome, all you new folks!
What is the Stapleton Moms Yahoo! Group?
The Stapleton Moms Yahoo! group is an email listserv started in 2006 by a Stapleton mom to help moms connect with other moms. It's a place to find a babysitter or a playdate, to buy or sell baby gear, to get advice on potty training, to get recommendations about our area schools from parents whose kids go there. One caveat: It can be overwhelming. There are nearly 2000 people on the list, and on an average day you'll receive around 75 email messages per day. You can - and should - sign up for the daily digest, rather than individual e-mails. You'll get around 3 digests per day, with 25 messages in each.
How do I join it?
It's easy. Go here to the Stapleton Moms Yahoo! group and click "Join This Group!" Membership requires approval, but messsages do not. The group self regulates itself pretty efficiently.
Do you run the Yahoo! Group?
Nope. I'm a member of it. I get the daily digests and occasionally I write about things on the list, or a hot topic Stapleton Moms are talking about.
Is Stapleton really that great?
It really is. A friend told me at their preschool get-to-know-the-parents night, the teacher had everyone relate a moment of pure joy in their life. One of the dads related how he moved his family to Stapleton and was mowing his lawn for the first time, and became overwhelmed with joy at how quickly his family had been welcomed into this community. "It's OK," my friend said, "We all feel that way." Join the Yahoo! Group and you'll see.
How can I offer my unique and awesome business, products or service to Stapleton Moms?
If you live in Stapleton, you can join the list. If you don't, you can find a friend, client or customer and ask them to recommend you. Or, you can contact me at Liz at stapletonmoms.com and we can chat about other ways to reach moms - I pass along lots of things, or you can advertise on my site, or we can talk about a running a deal just for moms.
