Don’t you love it when you put something out there in the universe and then get what you asked for? Ah, the “law of attraction” in action. :) A week ago, I posted about some new blogs I’d come across and invited you, my readers, to share with me any blogs that you thought I might be interested in, hoping to find some more like-minded mamas out there in the blogosphere. Fast forward to Feb. 13, when I received an emailed invitation to join a site called Maya’s Mom. The invite stated “…you can easily and seamlessly expose your blog to new readers by importingRead More →

Feb. 11 is my 2-year blogging anniversary. Wow! Time flies when you are having fun, huh? One of my goals when I started my blog is mentioned on my “About” page: “Since Ava’s birth, I’ve felt a need to raise awareness on various issues relating to women’s health and children, something I try to do via my blog. I truly do want to make the world a better place for her and Julian and I hope that I can do that even if it’s in a very small way.

Since I started my blog nearly two years ago, several of my (real life) friends have started up blogs of their own.

It has now been nearly four weeks since the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. I had not yet posted on this topic because I felt ill-equipped to comment on it. I don’t live near any of the affected areas, I don’t personally know anyone who was there. I only know what I see on the news or read on the internet, which I have to admit, hasn’t been a lot because I rarely watch the news and I haven’t been seeking it out on the internet until recently. Immediately after the devastation, there was talk on several of my message boards – people wanting to helpRead More →

I’m happy to announce my new store (through CafePress) – Attached At The Hip – is NOW online! Attached At The Hip sells primarily advocacy clothing, stickers, buttons, etc. with logos that promote attachment parenting ideals such as breastfeeding, baby wearing, gentle discipline, natural birthing and more. I also offer some non-AP logos for announcing an expected baby (I’m going to be a big brother/sister shirts) and crunchy/granola attire for mamas and the whole tree-hugging family. In addition, there are shirts for domestic “divas” and “goddesses.” I’m very excited to get this off the ground and, while I am hoping it will be a profitableRead More →
