A PSA For Blogspot Bloggers

Don't Disconnect Your Readers

by: Sharon DeVellis

I read a lot of blogs. A LOT. I have my secret stash of bookmarked blogs set up in organized folders on my computer and go through them almost every morning whilst drinking my coffee.  Then there are the posts I find through Twitter and Facebook. All in all, it's about 25 to 30 posts per day.  I try to leave comments but only when I feel I can add to the conversation because comments are IMPORTANT. Not the "great post" or "LOL" comments but comments with meaning.

Words Have Meaning

Choose Them Carefully

by: Sharon DeVellis

Every morning I get up early and read blogs. I read about 20 or so a day—some are friends, some are discoveries I've made throughout the year, some through twitter.  With coffee in hand, I read and/or comment. Comments are important, are they not?  It's nice to see clicks but for me, writing is all about connection and the comments? Well those are the conversations that connect. But that's a whole other post for a whole other time.

The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

Sharon is a Common Sense Parent which is somewhere in between being free-range and helicopter. She believes in being active as a family and eating well 85% of the time. The other 15% is for the days when she's PMSing and then all bets are off. So far her parenting style has worked wonders for her two boys who astound her on a daily basis but that's not to say she doesn't have time to totally screw it up. She can't teach you how to keep your house clean while balancing a job and motherhood but if you're a mom who's struggling to figure it out, you've found your tribe.
