Are you spreading the word about our new sister sites? (I’m just going to assume that you’ve already told all your friends and blog readers about our fabulous content here at Big Sister 5 Minutes for Mom). Today is our one-week anniversary, and it’s already been a fun ride. We are still working on getting things just right, but by popular demand, as an alternative to signing up for our feed, you can receive new posts right in your inbox on all the sister sites.
I can’t stop talking about or thinking about them, for example:
When I read the post called “If Every Mom Were a Stay-at-Home Mom,” on our Parenting site, I emailed the link to a friend with whom I’ve shared thoughts about the Mommy Wars (end them already, I say!). Veronica writing as a SAHM in praise of many of the working mothers on whom she depends makes her point well.
And if you haven’t really read 5 Minutes for Special Needs, I think you might be surprised at what sorts of needs are included there. I emailed my friend a link to Kristie’s article “What’s so special about a hyper quirky kid?,” about parenting a child with neuro-behavioral issues. There are families represented who are coping with Down Syndrome, autism, failure to thrive, deafness, cerebral palsy, and more.
I want to be Green, really I do. There are a few things that give me pause–convenience, instant gratification, etc. Big on my list is the higher cost (or the perceived higher cost), so I loved the articles this week by Sommer, Buy Green, Stay Green, and Jessica’s Adventures in Green Haircare.
And should I toot my own horn? I feel like I’m just sitting back and letting my eager bookworms do all the work at 5 Minutes for Books, so it doesn’t even feel like boasting. We are all books all the time, but we are offering more than just reviews. Each Thursday, including today, we’ll bring you “Books on Screen.” Check in each week for giveaways as well.
So read up. Pass the word about our sites, and share the information that you find there with those who need it.
