What is your blog name?

What is your blog URL?
What is your site's URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm an experienced mom; 19+ years of parenting, and have a couple little boys at home, ages 4 and 8. I've stayed home with them for over 8 years!, but I have a Master's Degree in Public Health, so I know I (used to) can talk like a grown-up at least sometimes!
What is your blogging philosophy?
Right now I'm just 'vanity blogging', but basically I'm a 'dot-org' at heart, so I'm trying to add some useful content like articles on family finance, family health issues, things like that. Also I love handwork and am adding that as well. Maybe someday I'll get some ad revenue to help with the monthly fees, but not a priority.
I have been blogging since...
Just a few months

How can I be deeply touched by some stranger across a continent and then an ocean, by little black symbols on a white background? And will MY own words someday maybe touch another…

Hi There from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York. My blog offers light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
