I love to write.
I love to talk.
Ergo, I love to blog!
My blogging journey began a little over a year ago when my book, Show Me How! Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking, was published.
The blog began as an extension of the book so that I could connect with parents:
- To share my passion for picture books and the messages they contain.
- To provide information about using positive parental participation to build self-esteem and strengthen the parent-child connection.
- To offer crafting and cooking activities along with picture book summaries and reviews to help parents develop better literacy skills in young children.
Accomplishing the above goals are very important to me, but I must confess that my blogging journey has been an educational, enjoyable and uplifting experience for me as well.
I’ve connected with over a thousand wonderful people…through blogging and Twitter and Facebook. The only downside…with all of the amazing posts, stories and articles available to read and comment on, I barely have time to write my own blog and work on my next book project!
Here are the guest author posts and reviews I did of several new and exciting children’s books.
Here are just a few of the blogs I follow that inspire, educate and entertain.
Here are some of the sites I post on.
Here are a bunch of the 5-star reviews and recommendations of Show Me How that were done this year.
I’m so very grateful to all of the bloggers and tweeters I’ve connected with this past year. I confess, though, that with blogging, book writing, working, and taking care of home and hearth, I am constantly juggling the need for sleep with the desire to do everything else. So, when the other day, my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I replied that I had EVERYTHING and needed NOTHING, I must confess that I wasn’t being totally honest.
If someone invents a time machine that can enable me to fit thirty-six hours of activity into a twenty-four hour day…please contact me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Happy Holidays to all who have read my posts, followed me on Twitter, recommended and/or bought my book and supported and encouraged me on this amazing journey during 2011.
