Oh I’m so delighted that you’re interested in a sponsored post here on my blog. I don’t do them often and then only when it’s a super good, encouraging and authentic fit for my readers, whom I love and adore.


So, to make things simpler for both of us, I’ve compiled all my stats and the details about this blog and the amazing women who gather here below:

Who is Lisa-Jo Baker?

Lisa-Jo Baker is the author of Surprised by Motherhood: Everything I Never Expected About Being a Mom, the strategic relationships manager for DaySpring, and the Community Manager of the company’s website, incourage.me, an online home for millions of women the world over.

She shares her every day life lived in between kids and chaos at LisaJoBaker.com, is a nationally sought-after speaker at events such as the MOPS International Convention, Allume, Jumping Tandem, Declare, Influence and Raising Generations, a contributor to HuffPost Parents, and her writings on motherhood are syndicated from New Zealand to New York.

Who reads this blog?

Primarily moms. They span the entire age range from early twenties to empty nesters. They hail from over 100 countries and are faith-based women looking for encouragement that what we do matters – especially because we moms spend so much of our time between dishes and dirty laundry, carpool and cubicles.

Since Lisa-Jo launched the blog is 2009, it has grown into a community of women the world over who can relate to her honest take on motherhood and ability to laugh at herself and learn out loud from her parenting mistakes. Lisa-Jo’s readers are interactive, funny, compassionate, helpful, encouraging and are tremendous cheerleaders of her and one another.

For example, in 2014, Lisa-Jo’s blog readers raised over $50,000 for an initiative in her homeland of South Africa to build a water point, laundry center, vegetable garden, playground and community center for a community of 250 orphans and vulnerable children and their caretakers.

And in January 2015, Crystal Paine of Money Saving Mom traveled with Lisa-Jo to introduce her own blog readers to the project and on Valentine’s Day weekend 2015, their combined blogs raised $12,000 by inviting readers to become project partners at $10/month for a year.

How big is this blog’s influence?

Lisa-Jo’s writings on motherhood have been syndicated from New Zealand to New York including on Huffington Post Parents, BlogHer, Desert News, Stroller Traffic, iVillage, OH Baby!, the Power of Moms, and Christianity.com.

Women looking for encouragement continue to find their way to Lisa-Jo’s blog through sites like Facebook and Pinterest— Lisa-Jo has many posts that have gone wildly viral with some of the top ones being pinned in excess of 333,000 times with others that have 495,000 and 303,000 Facebook shares respectively.
