I'm not a mom yet, but DH and I are going to start trying in the next few months, so this seems like a great network as we prepare!
Anyway, here's my info! The blog I contribute to is http://blog.experiencela.com. It is specific to arts and cultural events happening in and around Los Angeles. There are several contributors to this blog, all with different interests and perspectives, but with the same goal in mind: to share arts and culture in Los Angeles. I was turned on to this site by a friend, and appreciated it so much that I recently started contributing. And we have many visitors, but I think this blog has so much to offer that more readers are always welcome.
Although I'm not yet a mom, this is something that grows more important to me as my husband and I plan for our future with kids in mind. I was lucky enough to get to study art and music in school, and take field trips to museums and concert halls. When I hear about budget cuts in schools and how the arts continue to be eliminated (if they even exist anymore in schools), it just breaks my heart. It is so crucial to learning and development imo. I don't think enough is being done to provide alternatives. ExperienceLA is a public service in Los Angeles that, imo, attempts to do that. There are so many great, and FREE events that parents can take their kids to and expose them to new forms of art, theatre and music in ways that kids would really love. People just don't know about them. In addition to my eyes being open, I've been taking my young niece and nephew to symphony concerts designed for kids, a Wizard of Oz themed art show, different dance experiences, and so many more. And they're always surprised by how much fun they have! I'm so happy to be able to expose them to such wonderful things.
Anyway, sorry for the ranting. I really am passionate about this, and want as many people in LA to be able to discover the fun things I have. And even if you're not in LA, I hope this blog inspires you to go out and discover the wonderful arts and cultural events in your area, or to take action and find ways that your community can offer more of these kinds of activities. It is so important.
I'm excited to check out everyone's blogs! Thanks!
I write about romance novels and writing because I'm a published romance writer. I want to let readers know about my books, how I come up with my stories, the real person behind my books, and sometimes the craft of writing. I write about what it's like to be a writer who has a real life and a family and a day job.
Sometimes I interview other authors, writers, and editors.
Other writers and readers tend to be my visitors. Several have befriended me.
I try to write a post daily but at least 3 or 4 posts weekly.
Sometimes I hold contests and give away a free book to one of my fans.
This Monday, July 13, 2009 my next book releases "Doggy Style" at http://www.total-e-bound.com so I'll be talking about my story and giving free excerpts.
I am very happy to join the Mom Bloggers Club. I started my blog in January 2008 and I've been dedicated to building my Rodan + Fields direct selling business. The blog has been very useful and many have found the content every useful to find out about this awesome work at home opportunity and also to find out me as a team leader. Check these sites out when you have a moment. Hope have a great day!
My blog is http://thriftycraftmama.blogspot.com and it's about my life as a thrifty, craft-loving mom of two toddlers with baby 3 on the way. I picked the topic because I love making and doing crafts with/for my kids. Crafting isn't very popular in my local community, so I was hoping for (and found!) an online community of people with similar interests. I write posts most weekdays. I get 80-90 unique visitors per day, and most of them are not people I know in real life. I have quite a few regular visitors now, and I really enjoy reading their comments and visiting their blogs.
* Why you chose that topic to blog about:I chose to write about single motherdom and being the Only Active Parent (O.A.P.) I call it. Not only am I a single parent. I'm the ONLY parent. This presents a unique set of challenges (and advantages).
* How many posts you write a week 4-5 posts a week * Do you get visitors to your blog (besides family and friends: Maybe 2 visitors that have commented recently? :(
I would like it to become a place for information and interaction for OAP's. Opies!
I don't blog about me, I blog about whats on my mind. Sometimes its daily, weekly, monthly or whenevern I have something to say.
Yes. I average about 20 hits a day. However, there are times when I receive 50 or more.
I decided to keep everything in one place ... managing multiple blogs did not work for me because I do most of my work off-line for small businesses. I am a write-at-home-mom of two boys, ages 5 and 2, and the wife of a collegiate coach.
i have one follower on one blog and two on the other so its slow but picking up. These blogs are about my life and i want to share my way of life to people who can get a better understanding of military life and moms who have quite a few kiddos. I try to post each day sometimes will be more than once a day.
Official Description: Baby GoodBuys is a website devoted to helping parents become savvy spenders. Most readers are moms or expectant parents. Baby GoodBuys’ content includes postings on baby, child and maternity bargains both online and in stores, product reviews and giveaways. In addition, glimpses into everyday life as a parent are incorporated into the content to help other parents relate.
I chose to blog about baby bargains because I was finding the most amazing deals on popular baby items on my own, and I couldn't find another deal website that was hitting on all of the same stuff I was finding! I wanted to share my knowledge with other parents. It's really been fun getting to know my readers and listening to their needs as my website evolves.
I post a LOT, average is probably 3 times a day.
Most of my visitors are not my family and friends! I get about 22,000 unique visitors a month
Hi! I'm a newbie :) I have a Eco-friendly review, giveaway, deals, freebie, life with a 2 yr old and more blog. We are a green family, so I decided to inform readers of how to become more Eco-friendly without breaking the bank. I try to post daily or every other day. I just started a month and a half ago and am loving every minute of it! Please check me out at: http://www.mkokopelli.blogspot.com
I have two blogs. The one I am the most active in is my book blog. http://booknerdextraordinaire.blogspot.com/
I chose it because I love to read, write and since I am unemployed I actually have the TIME to do what I dreamed of and that is to review books!
The amount of posts per week depends. I get several visitors a week. It's new and now that I am gaining a nice following I am going to host more giveaways! I have one going now, check it out! wink wink!
