Moms, It’s Time. 4 Reasons Why TikTok is the App You Need for Quarantine


Yes, you heard me. Move over other social media, TikTok is here. This social media platform takes it to a whole new level.

We live in a time where people love to share what they think, share their stories, and make people smile. By now I’m sure you’ve all heard of TikTok. Maybe you’ve seen it, rolled your eyes at it, and moved on. Maybe you’ve read about it and have let your teen download it. You’ve seen the dances, the ridiculous memes but you know nothing about it yourself. Ladies, I’m here to tell you that you’re not too old for it and yes, it’s also for moms. It’s time to let down some hair and have fun yourself. 

4 reasons why TikTok is a big deal and why you should download it yourself

1. You can create privacy settings galore.

Just like any social media platform, there are risks. But if you go in there you can lock down your videos so that only your friends can see them. Another way to stay connected with your friends during this time!

2.  Can you sing? Can you dance?

This is your way to show the world, no matter how silly you feel. This is a platform that encourages you to express yourself. This is also a fun way to express how I feel about motherhood in lip-syncing. Remember Olaf in Frozen 2? This is me and my son on a difficult day. Watch this…

3. Get your creative juices flowing.

This is fun for me to do right before I’m about to write or take on a project. Think about it, this app gives you the freedom to create anything under the sun, no exaggeration. Filters galore, video editing, you name it- it’s got it. It actually help brings out the nerd in me. 

4. I’ve watched videos during my downtime and have laughed, cried, and cheered others on.

It’s not always about being funny and lip-syncing; there’s also encouragement. If you need a smile, hop on. I can’t count the number of times being on here has improved my mood. I have had some deep belly laughs on this.

So while you may feel too old to have an account, you’re not. While you may feel too lame to make a video, you’re not. Get your dancing shoes on, join me, and have some fun.
