A soon-to-be au pair emailed me last month to let me know she’s started a Tumblr (a simplified blog) to offer advice to au pairs. The blog, The Au Pair Guide, will cover questions and answers, au pair to au pair. She’ll also be sharing from her own experience as she leaves the USA to au pair in Australia.
Several different au pair blogs have popped up since Au Pair Mom started, and while some of them have been mentioned in our conversations and others have been captured in the list on the sidebar, I’m sure that there are other good resources out there for au pairs that I’ve missed. This one looks fun, so you might check it out yourself and share it with your au pair…
Dear AuPairMom –
I’ve been following your blog for the past couple months as I prepare to be an au pair myself in June. It’s really insightful to hear host moms’ perspective before I leave; I think your blog is a great resource for moms and au pairs alike!
Sadly, there seems to be a gap in helpful au pair websites but I’ve started one to hopefully get a dialogue going for the other side. I’d love it if you could feature it under your au pair &/or parenting list. There seems to be such a dearth of au pair blogs and I’d like to reach out to as many girls as I can! Thanks so much for the awesome blog again!
Of course if you know of other au pair blogs that are positive, can-do, and all about making the au pair adventure more worthwhile, I’d be happy to list these in the sidebar too. Just let me know.
