I’m so excited to introduce all of you to an amazing new site, called Porch.com, and to announce that I’ll be joining their team as a “chief mom officer.” Porch is America’s first home improvement network, where you can see neighbors’ home projects, what they spent, the professionals they used and view data on 75 percent of U.S. homes.
The goal of Porch is to organize the world’s home information to make home improvement easy, connected, and delightful. Porch is free to use and protects the anonymity of homeowners by not revealing address information or precise locations of neighbors’ homes on its map.
On Porch, homeowners and renters can:
1.Find professionals that have worked in their neighborhoods, on similar homes, and that their neighbors and friends endorse.
2. Be better informed about home investments by exploring all types of projects neighbors have completed from remodeling to home cleaning and the precise amount they spent.
3. Get inspired with beautiful home design photos and create scrapbooks to share ideas with professionals and friends.

What do you think about the concept of this new social platform? I love it! And it came along at the perfect time, as Derrick and I are about to embark on a few small home projects. Share your thoughts in the comments! Will you use Porch?
