Friday Faves -- New Weekly Feature

My blog has moved! Please look for this and other posts here:
Mad About Kids. Thanks for reading!

I decided to start a new feature on my blog, called "Friday Faves". In these posts, I will talk about a couple of parenting-related blogs or websites that I have visited throughout the week that I think are worthy of some attention. They might be small, lesser-known blogs--or they could be popular and highly-recognizable websites. Regardless, they will have one thing in common--these "Friday Faves" are all sites you should take the time to visit.

I have two blogs to start off my "Friday Faves" feature. The first one is A Mom Speaks, which is written by a stay-at-home Mom (like me) who has two young children (a boy, 3 years old, whom she calls Superboy; and a one-year-old girl whom she calls Princess). This Mom writes about everyday life in an amusing and interesting way. What really made her blog stick out from all of the other Mom-type blogs was her twist on a blog contest. Because she is getting ready to move, she decided to go through and get rid of some of her books--and, she is doing so by giving them away to her blog readers! Isn't that a cool blog giveaway? I thought so...so I just had to write about it.

This next blog I found through Entrecard. Not familiar with Entrecard? Check it out here. Anyway, the blog is Contests 4 Moms, and it is exactly what the title says. This site lists all kinds of blog contests, explaining requirements and deadlines for entry. Many of these contests have multiple winners. Entering can be a lot of fun, and who knows? You might just win one someday!

I'll have more "Friday Faves" next week. If you would like me to consider your site for this spot, make sure I see it. If you comment on one of my posts, fave me on Technorati, or drop an Entrecard here, I will follow and do the same--so, those are all good ways to make sure I see your site.
