Being busy moms, we do want to stay connected while struggling to take care of the kids and the houses. Here are some tools that can make your social media life easy:

我們大概花很多時間在手機上,也許你是緊貼各類型的資訊或分享自己的近況,但是你是否用上過多時間?在處理小朋友的生活和家中大小事務中,我們作為繁忙媽媽也想和外間保持聯絡。以下是一些能令你的生活變得簡單一點的小工具:

1. canva.com

Of course, I cannot do it without WordPress, an online free platform for blog and website builder. Easy to use with many plugins and options to make your website or blog a stunning professional one. I am still a novice user but it’s good enough to get by.
