The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging from: Long Island
Kathleen Scanlon-Desio keeps it on “her island" of Long Island on her blog Long Island Chick. Specific to Long Island moms, this mom of two boys allows others in her community voice their opinions as a guest blogger, such as weighing in on whether Long Island needs more farmers' markets.
Along with food recipes, party ideas, and photography tips, Kathleen also gives us an inside look into how her family stays thrifty with weekly posts entitled "Thirfty Thursday." This new section gives readers tips on how to shop without breaking the bank. And Long Island Chick is around to help with coupon deals of the week and giveaways that can help you win a litlte extra cash.
As a person who takes scrapbooking seriously, the “Stuff I Like To Do” section takes readers to how-to tips for improving your photos and shares how to best display your photos. There are more crafts and food activities ideas to plan with your kids around Long Island or when you're cooped up indoors because of bad weather. — Jin Lee
