My blog is brand new, and I'm finding it hard to commit too.
I posted this message in another area, about my 14 year old website.
Trying to stay relevant in an every changing environment is constant challenge.
My site Single Rose went live in 1995. It was born out of my personal situation as a young, new mom with two small children, with a husband that abandoned us. He announced he was in love with another woman. And here I was with a newborn and a 3 year old. Anyway....searching to connect with other women who could relate to my situation; the only thing online around that time was AOL's MomsOnline and they catered to, what I felt like at that time, were pampered, married moms. In my situation where I was the sole bread winner and bottle washer etc etc that information was of no help (and a little frustrating) to me.
So in an effort to keep my top google ranking and the Mom of the Week feature, we've got a couple of different things going on.
1) We're giving away a $100 gift certificate, in order to try and keep our Mom of the Week feature going. Anybody who enters their "mom story" and photo between now and Feb 14, 2009 will automatically be entered into a drawing for the $100 gift cert.
2) We've added a new forums area, very much like this one here (ning), where members can upload photos, videos, create a personal blog and lots more.
3) We wrapped our Angel Christmas program in December, but have left the "adoption" portion of the site open. If you'd like to adopt a Single Mom family, click here.
We do have a site redesign on the horizon, but I'm not sure when it will launch.
Hi, my blog home is http://lusciousdeals.blogspot.com and I post up deals that I think
are pretty cool. I too get random visitors. I'm not a blog pro..but I am still learning alot.
I also just branched out from a couponing group in Salt Lake and created another
couponing group in Portland, OR called, Cents-Able Shoppers PDX Network. We have
quite a bit of newbies on there so feel free to stop by to visit & join. The group is still in it's infancy
and shares deals for Washington and Oregon.
I love to cook, I'm a mom of two girls (an almost 14 year old and a 3 year old) and not sure where my blog is headed! I have not shared my blog with family yet because I feel like I'd rather get feedback from complete strangers for some reason!
I'm an electronic and kitchen gadget junkie as well :(
* Why you chose that topic to blog about - Mine covers pretty much everything. Obviously I couldn't decide on a single topic. I write about family life, movies, tv, music, shopping, everything!
* How many posts you write a week - I usually update every day.
* Do you get visitors to your blog (besides family and friends) - yes, I had another blog that I am trying to move certain posts over from - not having much luck - this is a new look, new blog but I have been blogging for a while.
* Any other info you wish to share about your blog - I think I covered everything - check it out! :)
www.kiddio.org is chock full of fun projects, ideas to bring the creative spirit into your home, links to neat stuff on the web, and ways to make daily life with your children more enjoyable!
and my new venture is at:
www.housemade.org;you'll find loads of thrifty, crafty, fun ideas, yummy, practical recipes, tips on the lost art of homemaking, and stories about how we bring it all together.
I started Kiddio because I'm the crafty mother of three creative kids and I wanted to share that love of all things creative with others. I write around 4 posts per week (give or take), and average around 400-600 visitors per day. I'm up around 1100 subscribers. It's such fun, I hope you'll stop in!
House+made grew out of a desire I have to reclaim some of myself and share my thoughts and ideas rather than just being mommymommymommy all of the time. It's been up for about a week and I'm getting around 200 visitors per day and approaching 100 subscribers.
-I do mostly reviews but love posting about my lil man too!
-I do mom reviews.....makeups, diaper bags, strollers, everything a mom could need! I have lots of contests too!
I'm Lisa. I'm a freelance writer, humor blogger and fairly new to the blogging world. Lisa Kogan and the late Irma Bombeck are my muses. My blog centers on the myriad ways the people in my life embarrass, annoy, infuriate and amuse me. No matter what is happening, economic crisis and all, there is always something to laugh about.
I write about one post a week, have almost 2,000 visitors to my blog, and hope you'll be the next one. My blog's name is Lisa Wants The Floor and the url is: http://lisawantsthefloor.blogspot.com
I'm Tiffany, mom blogger of http://www.babesandkidsreview.com. I review baby and kid products, but only ones that I have used. I also like to pass along useful articles occasionally and of course a great deal!
* Why you chose that topic to blog about - I have two little boys and am always researching different products before I buy them. It seems tedious to do a search everytime I want to know about a product. I thought it would be great to have a blog where a reader can come as a one stop resource. I know it will take time, but the content is slowly coming!
* How many posts you write a week Usually 2-3 times a week
* Do you get visitors to your blog (besides family and friends) - I've started to get more traffic, but not a lot...
* Any other info you wish to share about your blog - I really love blogging and I love being able to connect with other moms via my blog. It's so much fun! I also like to list the pros and cons when I review. Although I absolutely love some products, I don't believe anything is perfect and I love being able to give an honest opinion to my readers.
Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…
