Over the last few months, I have mentioned projects, deadlines, articles to write and blog posts for another project in my Tweets. Up until this post, I have been pretty quiet about it here on my own blog. I have been working on a new adventure. To say that this never would have been possible without social media, specifically Twitter, would be an understatement.
Quite a while ago, I "met" @AnaRC on Twitter. We started chatting about crazy New York winters and Disney. Ana moved to Northeast NY from her previous home of Western NY. Fast forward to present day and I am working on her latest pet project called KidsFunPlaza. This project is a dream that she had and is living out. Not only is there a blog, but a new magazine for the Northeast region of New York. Check out our first baby (with my second baby modeling it):
I am writing the toddler and kiddo articles on the KidsFunPlaza Blog as well as in the magazine. In addition to this, I am doing interviews in the magazine for the Parent and Educator of the month. Our second magazine is going to print next week and I can not wait to see it. The blog is not region specific and has articles that are written by an amazing group of women that I will introduce you to soon in another post. For now, please say hello to those of us on Twitter –> @CutestKidEver, @TheCraningGap, @SandraFoyt and @AlbanyMommy (if I missed someone please let me know). The magazine is a local resource for parents, grandparents, and others that will be available in locations for FREE. Eventually, KidsFunPlaza will be expanding to other regions and will be a fantastic resource for people throughout the country.
So my question to you this week is:
Do you have a free local parent magazine/paper near you? If you do what do you like/dislike about it? If you do not, what would you like to see in one some day?
