The NEW Tampa Bay Moms Blog

Tampa Bay Moms Blog Contributor

There's a new local blog in the Bay and I'm one of the lucky contributors! I first heard of the City Mom Blogs from my friend Jenny (conscientiousconfusion) and role with the Dallas Moms Blog.  While we were having lunch on a recent trip to Dallas I found out that they had plans on launching a Tampa Bay Moms Blog (TBMB) here!  I was excited and began to look for more information.  I was immediately connected with the founder, Sheriss, and accepted as a contributor! The TBMB launched on April 29th with a week full of giveaways from local businesses and companies.  The 13 contributors each introduced ourselves and shared more about why Tampa Bay is our home!  What else do we talk about?  Anything local!  Fitness, kids activities, our favorite parks, local businesses we love, and stories about our families.  There will also we local meet ups for moms and families to attend around the Bay. To see some of my recent contributions visit TBMB and be sure to subscribe to our emails and ... [ Read More ]

News & Updates from Around the Cloth Diapering Community

Would you like to know the very latest happenings around the cloth diapering community?  I thought so! For starters, let me say that while I may not get my blog updated as much as I like I am still very active in the community.  You can find me most days on Facebook where I moderate several cloth diapering community pages including my own.  I can also be found blogging for other companies and appear as a guest of a few blogs as well.  I'll try to do better with cross posting here so you don't miss a single article from me. News from this week: Wednesday night Kim Rosas from Dirty Diaper Laundry hosted an amazing Twitter Party for the Giving Diapers, Giving Hope organization.  The community raised over $1,500 so far in their fundraising efforts to become an official non-profit and to continue supporting families in 2012.  You can read more about the campaign on Dirty Diaper Laundry and enter to win some amazing prizes through Feb. 14th on her Facebook fan page.  To review the ...

For being eco and being honest about it…


I have just received a glamorous and much needed SUNSHINE AWARD!  It's been freezing cold in Florida this week and the sunshine is exactly what I needed.    This sunshine award was given to me by @Zealandsmom at There's No Snakes in New Zealandblog.  Danielle and I met on Twitter while talking over cloth diapers one day and I'm stoked that she has finally moved back to town!  I've never met her in real life (IRL) but we have a play date coming very soon as we both find time!  LOL!  Go check out her blog.  She talks about her kids and does product reviews and giveaways too.  She certainly has more time to spend on her blog than I do...I'm slightly jealous.  Thanks D for passing on this wonderful ray of sunshine to me!! Now...I have to pass it on to 12 bloggers I know.  I spend a lot of time each day on my own blog, networking on Twitter, and yet I only visit a few blogs each day.  Here are some on my Google Reader: 1.  Diapers and Dimples  -  For some lovely Wordless ...
