Do you have a favorite blog post of your own?
My favorite one is when I got to work with Disney and have an In Home Celebration. I love Disney and sharing my knowledge with others, and I got to gather items to rebuild my daycare provider’s daycare. Her house had just burned down and she lost almost everything. This was a great way to host a wonderful event and give back.
It goes along with this post:
What are two or three of your favorite blogs to read?
Mommy Niri – She was my friend before she started blogging (I already was). She is great and very grounded due to what she has gone through in life. http://www.mommyniri.com/
Occasional Rambling – She is my friend Dorene who started me blogging – http://www.occasionalrambling.com/ Though she hasn’t been posting much since her 3rd child. 🙂
http://www.adventuresinparenting.me/ – I love people that move to Boston from some where else and share their thoughts. I have lived here forever so she has a different outlook.
Quirky Fusion – I also have known Christy for quite a while. Starting with Gymboree classes, and we have two common friends. http://quirkyfusion.com
And of course all of the Boston Parent Bloggers.
What inspired you to start a blog?
I love sharing pictures with friends and family. In fact when we got married I created a Wedding Web Page. I guess that was my true start. I am technical as I went to school at WPI for Aerospace Engineering – Read:
So sharing pictures and being technical was great. I could combine two passions. Despite the fact that my husband is a computer developer I learn on my own how to set stuff up.
How many children do you have?
2, a boy age 6 and a girl age 4
Why did you join Boston Parent Bloggers?
