Social Networking With This Blog

Any links to Amazon are affiliate links.

I thought I would break down the social icons here on the blog a bit in case you just can’t get enough 🙂

The social icons are found on the right side of the page under the tabs and above the welcome message. 

First is Facebook. This will take you to the Facebook page for this blog. On this page, you can ask questions. When you “like” the page, you will get notifications of posts in your feed. I don’t always do this every day, but I will remind you about polls on the blog and giveaways on the blog. I do try to share the post of the day each day, but it doesn’t always happen.

I have 9 admins that help monitor this page. If you ask a question, either one of them will answer, a fellow “liker” of the page will answer, or I will answer. I do move these questions into my regular rotation of questions on the blog. Asking a question on Facebook will not get your question answered by me faster than it would on the blog, but it should get it answered by others faster than I do on the blog.

Next is Twitter. This is following me on Twitter. I tweet either good quotes I find pertinent to parenthood or quotes from the post of the day with a link to the post. 

Next is Twitter, but following Babywise. This account is not run by me, but is run by Hank Osborne, who works for the Ezzos. He does link my post each day, along with anything else he finds pertinent to Babywise followers.

The next button will take you to the Google Group for this blog. This is a large group of followers of this blog who offer each other advice, support, and friendship. I have over 20 admins in this group who help answer questions. I answer questions if I see a need for me to answer it or if it is a topic I have some knowledge with but haven’t covered it on the blog. There are fabulous people in the group with a collective experience that covers almost anything you can imagine.

The final button is my Pinterest account. This is just for fun if you want to follow me on Pinterest.

Please note that I do not have email included up there. I have increasingly been getting more and more emails sent to me that are asking me questions. Most of the time, these emails get lost in my inbox. I literally get hundreds of emails each day, and I have no way to filter these emails to catch them anywhere. If they do not get lost, I add them to my normal rotation for answering questions on the blog, so emailing me a question will not get your question answered any sooner. I ask that you ask your questions on the blog, on the Facebook page, or in the Google Group. Those are the best ways to ensure an answer, plus it helps other people because they see the question and answers too. If you have a question you feel is quite personal, go ahead and email me and hopefully I will catch it 🙂 Thanks so much!
