Introducing the Celebrate Canada Blog Party, hosted by Canadian Mom Blogger! Welcome to the party! Participants were asked to do a post describing their blog for their new visitors, so here goes:
This Mom Loves was launched about five months ago. I'm the mother of two girls, ages four and two, as well as being a full-time Grade 3 teacher and freelance writer in Ontario. I had all sorts of writing ideas and thoughts to share, and decided that a blog would be the best place to put it all together.
My blog is a place for me to share some family stories and true confessions, but also to offer my opinions on education, books, and movies. I've recently opened myself up to a few product reviews and giveaways, mainly for small Canadian businesses. Although I'm thrilled with how the blog is growing, it's still fair to say that my giveaways are 'low-entry', so be sure to check out the current offerings:
Win a $25 Gift Certificate for Bugalug Baby (nonslip barrettes, headbands, belts and soother savers)
Ends July 6th
Win a $50 Gift Certificate for Angelface Prints (custom-designed photo cards and personalized name art)
Ends July 11th
And the most appropriate for today:
Win a set of kids' books about Canada
Ends July 14th
Another new feature here is the Momterview, which began when I had a great chat with Canada AM's Marci Ien. Next up will be former The Mom Show host Laurie Gelman.
Sometimes informative, (especially if you're looking for crazy organizational tips), sometimes controversial, This Mom Loves has become a wonderful hobby and networking tool for me. Welcome; I hope you'll be back! You can find buttons for Google Friend Connect, Twitter, and email subscriptions in my sidebar. I also have links to my published magazine articles, in case you're interested.
Happy Canada Day!
