Blogs for parents

Love 'em or hate 'em, blogs are here to stay and hold an important place in online, and sometimes even off-line, family networking. Besides being a useful way to connect to other parents, blogs can create a sense of community when you are feeling isolated at home or work. A good writer or community of writers can bring a little humor into your day, provide some perspective on parenting or supply high-quality peer advice.

Blogs can be consuming, so you might try setting yourself a time limit, or whittling your frequently visited sites down to a select few. Make the most of your visits by posting comments and questions so blog reading doesn't just become another passive experience. Or join the "blogosphere" by starting your own. You know, in your spare time.
