BabyShrink Needs Your Questions – AND Your Advice!
I had planned to write one more post about Weird Pregnancy Dreams, but there’s just so much going on behind the scenes here, I just had to tell you about it.
Here is a quick rundown -
**New BabyShrink website design in progress
**BabyShrink PODCASTING…what would you like to hear?
**Great new interviews to post soon
**And finally, I need your questions!
BabyShrink Site Redesign
It’s hard to believe BabyShrink was launched March 7….of
THIS YEAR. In 10 weeks, over 20,000
page views have been logged. 20,000! That’s due in no small part to my chief
booster and whip-cracking editor, Danny Evans at DadGoneMad. But lots of you
have decided to stick around, ask questions, participate in the discussion, and
read my articles. I couldn’t be happier. And so, it’s time to upgrade the site
to be cleaner, easier to navigate, and to use my radical new logo, designed by
my Grammy-nominated friend and tireless supporter, Glenn Sakamoto. All this
week I’m meeting with web designers. But I’m a shrink, not a "tekkie". I need
your advice and suggestions about making BabyShrink as useful and appealing as
BabyShrink’s Parenting Podcasts
My friend Ilima is a new mom, and since she’s ten years
younger than I am, she’s wayyy cooler. Which means she knows how to use her
iPod. And she loads it with all sorts of great programs, and listens in the
middle of the night, when she’s up nursing her baby. But she wants Parenting
Podcasts…a la BabyShrink. And since she’s a journalist, I take her advice
seriously. So I ask you, dear readers, what kinds of podcasts do you want to hear
Great New BabyShrink Interviews
Remember when I told you about the fantastic book
“Babyproofing Your Marriage”? I had the opportunity to interview Stacie
Cockrell recently; she’s one of it’s authors. I can’t wait to post the
interview, and I do highly recommend you check out the book. Just look at
the reviews on amazon.com to give you a sense of what an important (and hilarious) book this
My series on Sensory Integration was very well-received, and
Lindsey Biel and Nancy Peske have generously offered to post my complete
three-part series on their website, SensorySmarts.com. I’ll let you know when
that’s up on their site.
I also was thrilled to hear back from an Israeli researcher
who’s done studies on pregnancy and dreams. You won’t want to miss the
fascinating new findings on Weird Pregnancy Dreams. Since my Israeli Professor
is on vacation, we’ll wait on the final post in that series until I can give
you all the interesting new findings.
I Need Your Questions!
Not only do I want to hear your feedback and
suggestions about new features to integrate into the BabyShrink site upgrade, I
also want to hear your parenting questions. As they say in radio, “Now’s a great
time to get through to me.” We go on vacation in a few weeks, so get your
parenting dilemmas and questions in to me now!
