Meet Our Bloggers — And Consider Blogging For Us, Too!
Since transitioning to our new website, we’ve added two new bloggers. C.C. Malloy’s blog, An Exceptional World, is a resource for parents of children with special needs. Cindy Silver’s blog, Nibbles of Nutrition, is a nutritional health resource for busy families.
An Exceptional World
C.C. Malloy is a disability advocate and the mother of three fantastic young adults. A freelance writer, she writes about the daily opportunities parents encounter raising a child with a disability. Her blog focuses on helping parents cope with the functions of their child’s educational accommodations from the start of elementary school through transition to college. Malloy has been published in a variety of newspapers and magazines, including Carolina Parent Magazine. For additional assistance and support, please visit her personal blog at bizigal.wordpress.com.
Nibbles of Nutrition
Cindy Silver is a licensed, registered dietitian. She is the owner of Market Basket Nutrition, a nutrition education business, and is a Nutrition Services Provider for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. She has a master’s degree in Food Science and Nutrition. She works with families to help them master the skills of good nutrition for healthier and happier lives. She believes that everyone can improve their nutrition and feel better by taking time to write tasty and healthy menus, get more organized in the grocery store and then cook simple and delicious meals at home. For additional information, including deliciously healthy recipe ideas, please visit her website at marketbasketnutrition.com.
We’re also looking to expand our blog offerings. Some possible blog feature ideas include:
Dads and Diapers: a blog written by a dad, giving other dads support and moms a perspective from the dad’s point of view.
The Family Pet: a blog written by a pet expert, providing information and support for families with pets.
To Grandmother’s House We Go: a blog written by a grandmother who may be raising her grandchildren, living with her children and grandchildren or provides lots of free babysitting for her grandchildren.
Hacks and Helps: a blog that provides DIY household organizational information and tips to help busy families keep clutter at bay.
Triad Treasures: a blog that explores all the great places and activities for families throughout the Triad, including Alamance, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guildford, Randolph and Stokes counties.
Do you see yourself writing one of these or another family oriented blog? If so, let me tell you more.
- While our bloggers are not compensated monetarily, they do benefit from the added exposure PiedmontParent.com can offer, including our social media reach through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+. By linking personal blogs, websites and social media links to their Piedmont Parent blogs, our bloggers can also build their own web traffic and social media reach.
- Our bloggers typically provide one new blog post a month. Those who want to do more can. That’s something we can work out prior to getting started.
- Sometimes, our bloggers are also tapped for freelance work. Freelance assignments do pay and are negotiated by our editor/publisher.
