Huggle - A way for Mums and Dads to connect with those who visit the same places they do

Everyday I am grateful that I am able to work from home and that for most of the days of the week my Husband is able to too. Being a professional blogger and vlogger is a dream come true and I love that I have been able to connect with so many other parents through what I do. Because the truth is, I don't actually have many friends. I've spoken about sometimes feeling lonely before on my blog and through that post I was surprised to hear that so many other Mums feel similarly. 

For those that work at home and for those that are at home with their small children, friends and work colleagues can sometimes feel inaccessible. Whilst parenting is the best job in the world, it's also pretty tough and some days are more demanding than others. I know that as a Mum myself, sometimes I just feel like I want someone to turn to when my Husband isn't around. Sometimes I need someone to remind me that I am doing a good enough job. Sometimes I just need to hear that someone else understands. And sometimes I just want to be that Mum in the park with her friend, pushing our little ones together on the swings and watching them play. 

And for those reasons blogging and vlogging is invaluable to me. OK the people I am able to e-connect with may not stand there with me in the park whilst we push our little ones together on the swings, but seeing the comments and the likes left on my blog or on my social media posts or the videos I make makes me feel that much less alone in this big wide, sometimes scary world of parenting. 

Recently I was asked by Huggle if I would be happy to share some information for other parents about their app on my blog. Huggle is a new platonic social app that launched just last month which allows people to discover and connect with those who go to the same places as them - places like gyms, local parks, Mummy and baby groups and even restaurants. 

Since launching they've actually had Mum's contacting them via their social channels saying that the app is exactly what they were looking for - a way to feel included again and not left out. A way to connect with like minded people around them of who they hadn't previously met.

Huggle is free to use and log-in is done through facebook. It then automatically checks you in via a very clever hyper-logical technology (which prevents fake check-ins). Huggle say they are more about places and not faces, their aim is to connect people who are like minded together as they believe that the places we visit say so much about our lifestyle. I like that this a social app with great safety features such as one minute photo verification and the fact that it only allows you to speak with people who you have a place in common with. 

This is an app that could help parents and non-parents a like connect with each other where they might have not done before. Combining technology (which I know I use as a way of helping me to feel connected to other parents everyday) with our everyday lives and daily travels. If you'd like to, you can download the app for free via the Apple app store, Google Play or Windows Store and you can visit Huggle here.

  1. This looks great and I can see how it would help so many people connect. Like you I don't have many friends and feel lonely, I'm not sure I would be brave enough to use it. I can't even bring myself to tweet people ha ha X

    1. Aw I think it will too! I can understand how you feel, hopefully blogging will help you with that. I feel like it helps grow my confidence. xx

  2. This sounds so good, I could use this for sure x
