"To be sure not to get dinged by google, make your disclosure an image, so that it can't be crawled by their spiders. I've even gone as far as to make my post disclosures also an image. For instance, this is my new disclosure when I review…"

Disclosure Policies - what do you use and how does mine sound?

I write a blog about children's books, media, toys and games. It is an Amazon.com affiliate, and we have earned a little bit through the links. Recently other bloggers who write kids lit blogs attended a conference where someone from the FTC spoke about disclosures and Amazon affiliates. Apparently there may be new rules or recommendations about what advertisers and bloggers can do. (I took several months off blogging in summer, so this may be old news to all of you!)Anyway, I have written a…See More

"It sounds OK to me, I believe the biggest thing is just making sure that there is disclosure & that people know if there's the possibility of money being involved. I have a basic one that is in my footer, but I don't do giveaways or…"

PBS Kids Island online games

Posted on January 20, 2009 at 11:33am 0 Comments

A and I have just discovered PBS Kids Island at PBSkids.org. It is a set of free games that teach reading skills. The system requires an email account and multiple kids can play under one email address. A parent / caregiver can check the account to learn a little about what their child is doing.

Posted on September 30, 2008 at 11:05pm 0 Comments

This week at toddler class I sat next to a mom who was taking a photo of her daughter during snack time. She introduced herself as a "crazy photo lady," and I asked if she also made scrapbooks. I do not make scrapbooks (uh, yet), but I have playgroup friends who are very into it. "Crazy photo lady" told me about a children's scrapbook format that has me very, very excited..... making our own children's alphabet books featuring photos of our family!



The idea is to make an ABC or… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find 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 and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
