Top Ten Reasons to be a MomsOutLoud.com Beta-MomMoms Out Loud - Inform, Connect, & Celebrate — By Rebekah on May 26, 2008 at 12:47 pm
This image is of a Betta Fish, one of the most beautiful freshwater fish around. I originally thought I’d put a picture of a betta fish in this post simply because I’ve tagged my early adopter Moms as beta-Moms (i.e. beta-users of our website before it’s completely set for prime time). But as I looked for a picture, I found some interesting learnings about Betta Fish that are similar, I think, to women. Thanks to www.bettafish.com for the facts below, that I’ve shared AFTER the Top Ten Reasons to be a MOL Beta-Mom.
Why Be a Beta-Mom?
10. Because you understand that version 1.0 is never perfect, and you like to give feedback that makes things better.
9. Because you’ve always liked to try to break things, and this web-site is something you can try to break that you won’t have to pay to replace.
8. Because you like to share product ideas with other Moms that are great deals, help you save time, or make your life easier.
7. Because you’ve always wanted to create a Mom profile and learn how to upload a picture of yourself onto a web-site.
6. Because you like to talk about your experiences of being a Mom with other Moms, and you’ve heard that MOL Beta-Moms will get to be discussion group moderators on topics they care about on the web-site.
5. Because you’ve never used a web-site like Facebook, and you want to be one of the first Moms you know to make a new friend online before you meet them in person.
4. Because you will get to be the first Moms to share your the experiences you’ve had with local businesses with other Moms by writing reviews.
3. Because you like to meet new Moms in your local area, and you’ve heard about a really cool Moms Night Out that’s being planned for the MOL Beta-Moms in mid-July.
2. Because you want the chance to win great prizes over the summer for contributing to the web-site content and getting your friends to sign up.
1. Because you know that your friends will think you’re really hip, cool, and smart for referring them to a web-site as great as MomsOutLoud.com.

And now, for those of you who hung in here (or scrolled down) to see what Betta Fish and women have in common:
1) Betta Fish are amazingly diverse in appearance, but all are beautiful
2) Betta Fish are incredibly hardy, being able to survive in poor conditions. However, to thrive, they need the proper care and attention.
3) While two male Betta Fish left alone will almost certainly end up fighting and one will likely die, female Betta Fish can live together as long as each has a hiding place to “get away” from the others if it starts to feel intimidated.
4) 90% of the problems a Betta Fish may encounter is due to stress
Sounds like a lot of the women I know, including me!
