Four Hens and a Rooster
What is your blog URL?
Do you have another web site? What's the name?
Ten To Twenty Parenting
Twitter URL
What is your site's URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm the mom to 3, wife to 1. Raising 3 vivacious teen and tween daughters and trying to teach them to channel all that energy into positive fuel for the universe! During the day (and into the night sometimes) I run a social media marketing agency while juggling sitting on a couple of boards and playing chauffeur to the girls after school.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I started blogging in 2003 and love to blog and try to do it as often as possible. However, with a family and my own business, it's not as frequent as I'd like. I made a news years resolution in 2012 that I would focus more attention on my site(s) and am pleased to say - it's one of the only resolutions that I have ever kept!
I have been blogging since...

10 Things You Don’t Say to the Parents of Daughters

Posted on April 3, 2013 at 1:45pm 0 Comments

When you’re a parent, you get lots of advice.  And if you know me, you know that I hate unsolicited advice. I hated it when I was single and people told me how to find a husband. I hated it when I was pregnant and people told me how I should take care of myself. I hated it when my kids were small and people told me how to discipline them. Unless I walk up to…

What do bloggers, bullies and organic food have to do with each other?

  • WordPress
  • Livefyre

  • Disqus

But which one is the best?…

Welcome! I just wanted to introduce myself, and my blog, The Book Buff: Book Reviews for Regular People. Check it out at

There is always a giveaway going on at The Book Buff, click on the book title for more info:
The Island (audiobook) by New York Times best seller Elin Hilderbrand (Women's Contemporary Fiction)
Texas Roads by Cathy Bryant (Christian Fiction/Romance)

It can be a bit overwhelming around here at first, so if you have any questions, please, don't hesitate to ask!

Hi there and welcome 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. Don't be too overwhelmed by MBC. The ladies are awesome here and sooo embracing. Hope you enjoy your stay :)
