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…
Mom Spark is a cool blog for moms. It is a place to bond, discuss and share funny stories, recipes, tips, demonstration videos, favorite things and hilarious challenges! It's the place to go to laugh and learn with other moms without leaving your home! (and I know you're desperate for adult conversation!)
Crystal, I saw your notice about interviewing a green mom. I'm a light green, a spring green, if you will. Just getting started. Since you asked about our blogs, I can tie the two together! I blog, vlog, and produce an online video show for moms. I do it for fun, just a hobby right now. It brings me a lot of joy.
My next show features Jeff from Sustainablog.org as he helps my family set up a recycling program. All my blog giveaways have been green so far, too. I have one coming up for Act2GreenSmart bags. Would a mom in the process of going green be a good subject for your interview?
I'm a new kid in the blogging world. I'm doing it as a chance to feel connected to the greater good of my fellow mommies. I attended an all women's college (Sweet Briar - hence the pink and green) and felt very empowered after my experience there. As a mother of two young daughters (now my pink) I want to live by example for them and support my fellow women, maintain strong friendships, do my part to help out the planet (my green mama identity), and preserve my own identity as an artist so my voice isn't lost in stay at home motherhood. My blog is about stories from my daily life with my girls and things we do to live a green life. It is evolving and I'm hoping to incorporate more of my own art work as time allows. I also scrapbook and try to find enough hours in the day to do things for myself as well as the girls is a challenge. This (blogging) is something I am squeezing into evenings and nap times while my oldest is in Kindergarten for a few hours each day. I also just started a mini cafe press store with a couple of tshirt designs. Stop by my blog, I would love to have feedback. www.pinkandgreenmama.blogspot.com
Mae - I love your blog and your hilarious videos. I blogged about your contest today.
Amy, I voted for the worst hairstyle. Did you get those pics from your friends? Just great.
I haven't had time to check anyone else's blogs out yet.
I only started blogging this past June and I think I'm hooked. I think I missed the Mom blog stage though because my children are grown. I have 3 grown boys, 2 of which are in or going to Iraq with the Marines. I am a grandmama and have been married for 29 years this year.
My personal blog is Swisher Sweetie at http://swishersweetie.blogspot.com. I am still figuring it all out but my focus tends to be on entering sweepstakes. I have had good luck winning lots of things for my family over the years from computers, tvs, trips, to a truck, and a $25,000 trip to France. Now I have moved on to winning things for my daughter-in-law and grandchild.
Since I love computers, blogging, the Internet and gadgets I started a Business Blogging Guide at www.businessbloggingguide.com to teach people what I have and am learning about blogging. It is geered for people who have businesses and want to learn how a blog can benefit them but anyone can read it and learn something.
I also started Shopping Gems at www.shopping-gems.com which is my product review blog. I have several people as guest contributors. Please feel free to be a contributor if you like. I hold weekly giveaways on Sundays. I have a Link Love page up for anyone who wants to post their link. The form will let you do it without needing my permission. You can find that at http://shopping-gems.com/?page_id=191
I also run an online business, see above, with my husband. We sell both retail and wholesale and have our own product line.
Whew - I made myself tired with all of this chatter.
I am fairly new at this blogging stuff too - I'm completely hooked! I'd love for more people to hit on my blog and leave comments. I desperately want to make friends and read everyone's blogs. It's so interesting to read how other people live and hear about their children. This is gonna be a fun ride! Check me and my boys out at: barbandtheboys.blogspot.com
I'd LOVE to hear from ya!!!!
My blog is about living on less income while still enjoying life and giving back to others. We've had a rough year because DH had his hours cut to part time last fall and he still hasn't found full time work. Everyone keeps asking us how we have made it so I share those details on my blog. Check it out at http://life-with-less.blogspot.com.
I'm also a new blogger! Thanks for the invite here! I love checking out new blogs. I always make a point of visiting anyone who comments for me and I've already made some new friends and added "favorites" on my PC!
You can find me here..... http://cookieconversations.blogspot.com/
I'd love for you to pop in for a visit! I'd welcome any feedback as well as I try to get myself off the ground!
Thank you for the invite! I started my blog this year (April) after I was laid off from my job in the real estate industry. I was getting a little bored being at home and feeling as though I was losing brain cells. It's been really fun! I've met some great people both online and in real life. My blog isn't too serious, it's just me and the odd stuff that goes through my head. Hopefully I'll be getting more involved with PR companies for reviews and especially giveaways. Nice to meet you all!
It's called "The Mabelhood" and I talk about the fun and craziness of having five kids (eldest being 8 and having autism) and being the founder of Mabel's Labels Inc. It's all about life, labels, and littlies!
