All Hail Mommy Bloggers — and Social-Media Fans

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009


I’m so jazzed to share this fun Parents TV video about mommy bloggers with you because it features two terrific friends and colleagues, Jen Singer of MommaSaid.net fame and Amanda Wolfe, Parents magazine’s media editor and editor of GoodyBlog.

I’m one of Jen’s columnists on MommaSaid.net. (How cool that they mentioned the columnists in the report, too.) Check out the column, “Boo Boos, Germs and Pap Smears,” here.

Both Jen and Amanda will be speaking on my panel on social media at the American Society of Journalists and Authors annual conference in New York City on April 25. If you’re a writer, blogger (mommy-blogger or otherwise) or a social-media fan, you won’t want to miss this conference and this panel. To learn more about the conference and to register, click here.

In addition to Jen and Amanda, the panel will feature Redbook editor-in-chief Stacy Morrison (yep, she blogs,
too, over at Something About Stacy) and Peter Shankman of Help a
Reporter Out
fame. Hope to see you there!

Parents Magazine Wants Your Family’s “Giving-Back” Ideas

Thursday, July 24th, 2008


I love Parents magazine’s wonderful blog, GoodyBlog. (Their fun tag line is “Must see. Must Do. Must Have. Right Now,” and they cover parenting news, hot new baby and kid products and much more.

One warning: The site is addictive, so don’t get too engrossed right before it’s time to go pick up the kids from a play date! They even have a cool GoodyBlog Facebook group that you can join for more news and tips.

Today’s post is especially fun. The editors are looking for families who
give back during the holidays (yes, they know it’s July, but magazine editors have to think far ahead), whether it’s making a cookie
plate for your local nursing home or making and decorating your own
canned goods for a homeless shelter.

If you’ve done a project (big or small; simple is fine) with your
kids to help those in need during the holidays, head over to GoodyBlog and share your idea in the comments section. Your idea and story could be featured in Parents this holiday season!
