I learned about this great contest that ddrops is sponsoring, with the prize being a sponsorship to Blissdom Canada in 2011!! I am so excited to have decided to attend Blissdom Canada this year and this is a great opportunity for me to win a sponsorship!!
The question is: How does the mom blogging community have a positive impact on the health of Canadians.
I think the answer is right there. Community!!
The mom blogging community has had such a huge impact in my own life. I started blogging in 2006. I just celebrated my 5 year “blogiversary” and as I was looking over my posts I can see how much I have come through. Not on my own. I had others to encourage me and help guide me through my journey. From the sadness that life brings to the celebrations of life, my blogging friends have been with me, some since the beginning and others I am just meeting for the first time.
The opportunities for learning are astronomical! When I don’t know about something I can blog about it, tweet it out (because Twitter is starting to become fun, tweet me @momsmusings) or post questions on Facebook (Mom's Musings) there are people there to respond! Lessons to learn from others, experiences to share and even a shoulder to cry on (not literally, but you know what I mean).
Personally, in the last month, I have been able to connect with some other moms who are experiencing similar health issues with their kids as I am with mine. I have learned about different medications to treat seizures, different types of seizures to watch for and different medication protocols. Most of all, what I have found helpful in this past month, is the experience of these other moms and children in the school system. This is the year that Faith will be heading to Junior Kindergarten and I love that I can have some insight into what we may be facing with this transition.
If it weren’t for this amazing community, I would never have met some amazing women who have changed my views and my perspective.
So, how does the mom blogging community have a positive impact in the health of Canadians?
It is all about friendships. It is all about honest reviews and advice. It is all about helping and caring for others.
IT IS ALL ABOUT COMMUNITY!!
