Hello moms. I'm sure you will all agree that house cleaning is a thankless job! :( But it really needs to be done.
I am thinking of starting an online cleaning challenge where participants will focus on cleaning a little bit of their house everyday day.
I also want to build a support group for this, where participants can motivate each other, discuss, troubleshoot, share tips, links etc. so that its fun and interactive too.
Do let me know what you guys think about the idea.

Not me Veronica. But many of my friends ask me how I manage to maintain a clean house and stay motivated to clean.
So, I was thinking along the lines of having a support group, something like online cleaning buddies, where anyone who is struggling with house cleaning can seek support and encouragement.
I see so many parenting boards where moms provide so much support to each other and thought, why not have something similar for new homemakers who are overwhelmed by it all!

When I saw this post, I was going to suggest FlyLady as well. I also agree with Michelle, it's everyone's responsibility to maintain the household. How the chores get divided is up to each family, but everyone can have a part.

What is it that you are struggling with Kimberly that you feel needs a support group?

I'm pretty sure FlyLady has all of that stuff. But hey, if you want to reinvent the wheel, go for it!

OMG...Can you tell me the best way to do it...because I promise i'm getting ready to let everyone in my house straight "Have it". Women are always the one to get the blame when the house is in disarray as if we did or something, it's so cliche'.

Thanks Jodi. I have seen Flylady, but I am thinking of something a bit different.
I'm thinking of something more than just a website really. Challenge emails to keep you on track, printables, checklists, productivity tips and cleaning hacks...and a community where homemakers can share and interact.

Exactly Michelle...That's what I want to encourage through this challenge. I see so many people say they are struggling with keeping the house clean. But it is totally possible to do that by having a decent routine in place and by getting everyone on board!
I am thinking of building a community of people that can help each other with these kind of tips like you suggested.

Like Jodi has posted, there is already a site like that.
Tell you what, get everyone else in the house to do the housework as well. Why does it always have to be the Mother/Woman of the house?
Teach your children, including boys, to do all the jobs it takes to keep a house clean/tidy.
