I’ve been balancing a lot lately. I would probably be a “what not to do” in a case study about work-life balance but it’s hard for me to say no when opportunities come my way. So in the midst of wrapping up the school year, packing my daughters off to summer camp and planning an apartment renovation I’ve been trying to keep myself focused on my work and all the places it continues to take me that I didn’t expect. I have come to realize that as I live more and more of my life on Twitter and Facebook I have neglected my readers who really only come to my blog. This is my catch up post about all the shameless self-promotion that I’ve been doing elsewhere.
I was interviewed in The Daily News, From Screenwriter to Tech Darling, by Moms and the City. I loved talking to Raina and am happy to call Melissa a friend who is a constant source of ideas, contacts and a big kick in the motivational butt when necessary. I will write more about building KidzVuz later this summer when our second build launches.
If you haven’t checked it out yet please do! We love our beta tester kids and have tons of cool stuff planned with the new launch!
This week I did a great ABC News segment with Juju Chang and Lee Woodruff all about summer brain drain. Filmed in a very fabulous Park Avenue apartment, the taping was incredibly fun and interesting basically because that’s exactly how Juju and Lee are. Plus we had great discussion about why NOT to drill your kids over the summer.
Next week I will be speaking on a panel at CEA Line Shows. The panel, How To Work With Mom Bloggers, is sponsored by Techlicious and moderated by the founder, Suzanne Kantra. I will be speaking with 2 of my other Blogging Angels co-hosts, Amy Oztan (selfishmom.com) and Nancy Friedman (FromHip2Housewife.com) (who is also my KidzVuz co-founder and co-Queen Bee)
I was nominated as one of the Top 25 NYC mom blogs at Circle of Moms. You can click on over and vote for me! I’m thrilled to be listed with so many of my friends and fellow women bloggers that make my job so fulfilling and fun.
I am also really proud of the new Playdation blog where I am consulting as Social Media Director. I was able to hire a group of really wonderful bloggers whose work I love and create a blog where the entire community discusses, advises and talks about play and childhood. It’s the voice of the Playdation app which you can check out as well.
Beyond all this, in the now not so distant future, is the mother of all blog conferences, BlogHer. We are going to have a very exciting BlogHer announcement for KidzVuz within the next couple of weeks so stay tuned!!
