Update! We won the competition!
The Delft MaMa blog won the Parenting Blogs Award 2019 with 53% of the total votes. According to the editor Kate Groves, the blog is for the community and by the community. To attract non-native English writers, the blog team also has two volunteer proofreaders. Kathryn Roscoe and Candice Lamothe ensure the posts are easy to read for everyone. Kate says it is essential that people keep volunteering to write and to keep suggesting relevant topics. The blog editor humbly shares the award with the Delft MaMa community: “This award belongs to you [Delft MaMa community], because your suggestions made the posts happen. This award also belongs to the writers that bring your suggestions to life with their own voices, and to the writers that come forward with their always creative content!” Winning the Parenting Blogs Award 2019 is a recognition of the Delft MaMa volunteers’ hard work. More than that, it shows the strength of a community that never stops growing and creating new connections in the Netherlands.
We have an announcement!
I’m proud to announce that Amsterdam Diary has nominated us for a (Dutch) Parenting Blogs award for 2019! In their nomination, they wrote (original text is in Dutch):
This site is perfect for all parents in Delft. You can read about events, workshops, play groups and more. The website is in English, and during the events there is mainly English spoken. This way you can get to know people from other countries and cultures, and teach your children to interact with others who they may not immediately understand. With some gestures and lots of play, the kids will make friends without problems, even if they don’t have the same background at all. It is therefore an enriching experience for both parents and children.
If you’d like to vote for us, please find us at this link and submit your vote! Voting closes on 28 June.
Any questions? Please contact us.
