Blogs for parents

Published on: May 16, 2007

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.
