Over the last year, you’ve shared your stories with us on Empowering Parents, via our blog and website, and we’ve listened. In fact, we’ve laughed along with you at some of the humorous parenting moments you’ve experienced, and even gotten teary to hear about the darkest hours we’ve all lived through as we’ve raised our kids. Now EP would like to ask you to blog for us–that’s right, we’re asking you, our readers, to write about the trials and travails of parenthood. In particular, we’d like bloggers who are able to write eloquently on subjects like their ADHD or ODD child, Single Parenting, Stepparenting, Grandparents raising grandkids, Parenting adult children, or how you’re doing as you work through the Total Transformation Program with your family. After that, it’s all up to you. We have 130,000 readers out there who are waiting to hear from you! And we can give your blog a home on the award winning EmpoweringParents.com, one of the hottest new sites for parenting issues on the web. (iParenting award, “Best parenting websites, 2008.”)
We want you to blog on your day–to–day life experiences and tell others how you navigate through all the joys and hardships of parenting—and what you’ve done that’s worked to help your child’s behavior. Our other readers will be commenting and chiming in, helping to further grow the community we’ve created on EP. We’re hoping you’ll jump in and participate in the first of our unpaid citizen blogs—and reach out to other parents who know what you’re going through.
E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea, your resume, a writing sample, and a link to your current blog (if you have one). We respond to every request, so contact us today!
