Meet Our Members: Laurie from The Family That Laughs Together
Let’s meet Laurie from The Family That Laughs Together.
What do you write about?
I write about my journey as a parent, business owner, wife, friend dog owner, and social worker. I try to be mindful and enjoy the ride of this busy life and learn and find joy from my experiences. I also write reviews and participate in giveaways…and enter many myself!
Where do you live?
North Shore, Massachusetts
How long have you been blogging?
A little less than a year.
Do you have a favorite blog post of your own?
Anything with Skyfox and Tommy always makes me laugh
What are two or three of your favorite blogs to read?
I like Adventures in Parenting- you can just feel the love and joy Kate gets from her family
I really like to read Tykes Mom’s Blog, simple and good advice
What inspired you to start a blog?
I have always kept a journal (since i was in 2nd grade) and I feel like a blog is a really cool way to keep a journal. The idea of making a little money and opening myself up to new opportunities is also very exciting. If I ever get the chance to travel and write about my families experiences I will have completed a life long dream of mine!
How many children do you have?
1 age 3 and one on the way!
Why did you join Boston Parent Bloggers?
I am interested in learning more about blogging and joining a community of writers and parents.
What are some of your favorite blogging platforms, plugins and/or tools?
Still new to blogging platforms and all the lingo – I do like using facebook and twitter and connecting with readers. I love when I get a message from someone I don’t already know and they share some insight into a dilemma I am facing- it shows what a small world we live in.
