The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…
I have decided to check out blogging because I am a work at home MOM and finally have some time to share my business with others. It grew quickly and is generating $ on its own while I coach others to success. I feel Blessed to have come across such a great opportunity that I felt the need to give the same opportunity to all the MOMS in the world that have been looking for something GREAT! Touching Others Lives has always been something I have embraced and now it is my Lively Hood! Think of all the people you could touch by sending an unexpected card or who could use a system just like this in their life such as Hair Stylist, Insurance Brokers, Realtors, just to name a few honestly the list is endless. Stop by my page anytime or my website if your busy... it's Truly Wonderful! Todaymyway.com socreview.com/todaymyway
Make it a GREAT week!
I chose Christian Fiction as my main topic because I am an inspirational book reviewer for Romantic Times Magazine, have been a Christys Book Awards Judge for three years, and a book critic and publicist. But most importantly because I love books. I love to read and write them. Right now I'm on the verge of signing with a literary agency and have a publishing house wanting to buy my Christian romantic mystery series.
What a fascinating thread! I've got oodles of great reading here :)
I started Maternal Spark because I was hit with a huge hormonal wave of creativity after the birth of my daughter.
I try to write at least three posts / week
I get about 100 visits / day and many are repeats and subscribers.
I love blogging so much - it's been an incredible way to meet and support creative moms. My current goal is to focus on content and increase my readership.
How did I miss this discussion thread the last few months? I've been looking for something like this -- thank you for starting it, Deb!
I've got a few blogs and would LOVE some new visitors! Especially to my mommy blog, From Maternity to Madness, which I started in 2004, took a break, but now I'm back blogging again there and looking for other mom blogs to link to. It's just my blog to document reflections on my life with two crazy loud kids while running three businesses. I am starting to post 2-3 times a week now. Used to get lots of visitors until I took a break from the blog. Stop by & say hello! I promise I won't bite :) http://maternitytomadness.blogspot.com.

This one gets about 24,000 unique visitors a month.

Hi I am Rainbow Rivers and my blog is at http://rainbowriversjourney.blogspot.com/
I blog about frugality and finances, Homeschooling, Parenting Issues, Nature, curriculum , book and movie reviews, grandparenting and other issues of womanhood with an occasional blog about everyday life. I try to blog several times a week although I blog much more in the winter months than the summer ones. I do get some visitors that is a combination of family, friends and online folk. It does not have that many readers yet but I am working on increasing that as I love getting comments and discussions going.
Hi everyone! My name is Meg and I am a blogoholic! Just kidding, what I am is a Texas MAC (middle age chic, or at least MY term for it!) with older kids at home. My blog is about my journey from the cowboy world to the country club when my happily ever after turned out to be a city kitty...I write about the adventures, $hopping...I am a sucker for Lilly P, Tommy B and Ralph L...I am still horse crazy after all these years and try to share a little bit of the funky cowgirl in me for all you non Texans out there. I have my own biz and pretty much rock my life on my own terms. I started blogging as an outlet and became addicted. There aren't too many women my age with older kids blogging, but I am trying to change that. By the way, I LOVE this place!
I am a mom of three young boys and I absolutely love fashion. But because I have been perpetually pregnant over the past three years, I've become a bit of a connoisseur of maternity fashion. And July 2008 is a big month for my blog, Pregnant Fashionista, because for the first time, one of my favorite maternity boutiques is offering a 10% discount to Pregnant Fashionista readers! Visit the site at www.pregnantfashionista.com for all the info and then head to Blossom Mother and Child's online boutique for some of the best maternity fashions out there. Thanks! Caroline
Hi Deb! My blog is called Kaza's Place, and you can find it at http://kazasplace.blogspot.com ... I blog about various things, but mostly rant about mama life these days, as I'm home this summer with my 3 year old (I'm an academic, so teach 9 months and work at home each summer). I would like to write every day, but probably end up writing about 4 or 5 posts a week, as I'm afraid to bore everyone with too much of the mundane. I'm starting to have some regular visitors, which is VERY exciting, though I haven't really checked my actual stats yet so have no idea how many "lurkers" I may have at this point. I'm an anonymous blogger (so that I can be scathingly honest, and for some other reasons), so no family or friends visit other than my hubby. I'm irreverent, very liberal, love wine, and have a potty mouth, so if any of that offends you, then you might not like my blog but should visit anyway just to make sure. ;)
My blog is http://thedirtyshirt.typepad.com and my topics are all over the place. From kids, to gaming, to homeschooling and family I love to talk about it all. I try to write at least one a day but have a sick baby at the moment so its hard. My family and friends do visit and I am trying to build up readers now.
I started Diapers to Dating after blogging on MySpace for a while. Kind of got sick of the same readers reading every thing so I jumped out into cyberspace. With a teenager (17) and a toddler (20 months) the title seemed fitting.
I pretty much blog about life in general but I'm slowly starting, or trying, to venture out into other things. With a teen and a toddler, who knows what life is going to throw at you.
I also have 2 other blogs, Otto Creations for my business and 240 Photo for my son's photography (I maintain it for him since he's computer savvy but won't sit for 5 minutes to upload pictures). With all 3 of those, life, and every thing else, I tend to stay pretty busy.
I do post everyday in Juliana's Site and Picturing. In Juliana's Site, mostly about my son and my photography. And in Picturing of Life also about my photography and review products. In My Imaginary travels, I post about my postcard collections and anything about travels.
