We are often asked more about Mum & Career and as you’ve been kind enough to consider making a donation, I’m keen to be transparent about the workings of the site, so have compiled a list of frequently asked questions below – Suzannah Butcher, site owner at Mum & Career
Who runs Mum & Career?
I deal with the day-to-day running of the website and dealing with enquiries. Some of the work needed to keep the site running is outsourced, as it goes beyond my level of expertise but I add the majority of content myself and also manage the related social media accounts. I spend around 5-10 hours per week on the site and social media, in my free time.
Who am I supporting when I donate?
Our readers and followers, mostly professional working mothers. Many of them love Mum & Career, as it really does give them motivation, information and inspiration which you can’t always find that elsewhere. Mums don’t talk much (openly) about careers at the school gate and many websites for mothers are aimed at parenting too.
There are really good websites that support working mothers, or offer them valuable services such as recruitment, coaching, training and networking. But they aren’t always easy to find, or offer information on a single topic only. Mum & Career brings all resources out there together in one place.
Where do the donations go?
Mum & Career costs about £2,000 to run annually. The money goes towards web-hosting and maintenance, domain fees, plugins, outsourced admin, updating the design and graphics, tech support and keeping the site secure and free from spam/hackers.
Why don’t you just allow adverts, like other websites?
Mum & Career is valued by you for being clutter-free and clean. We’ve kept the site free from annoying pop-ups and advertising banners because we know you would hate to be bombarded with targeted advertising for shoes and handbags and we also know you would hate it if the content was mixed with bland advertorials and spam links.
