Not sure how many people know that I'm the girl behind Stepchicks. Yep, it's true. I conceived the little 'chick a little over a year ago because I wanted a home to call my own where I could chat with my fellow stepmoms (that I wouldn't have to pay a fee to be a part of).
One year and nearly 500 members later, I'm in awe of the progress the site has made. If I don't do anything else in life, I will be satisfied knowing I helped my fellow stepmoms find a place where they can vent and find stepmom friends.
About 6 weeks ago, I wanted to find out a little more about my fellow Stepchicks. I know a few of my Stepchicks friends in person or on the phone, but I was hungry to know more. How old are? Are you a new stepmom or a veteran? What and why do you look to Stepchicks for advice?
The following are the results of the survey. Obviously, I can't list every minute detail, but I can provide some top level results that offer some indication of the types of ladies you'll find on Stepchicks.
