Post Earth Day and as we face another tax bill, I'm feeling kind of non-consumerist (and cheap.) So, instead of online shopping today, I'm going to share a few of the sites I visit regularly for parenting lifestyle info:
lilsugar.com - I won't lie, I stumbled upon this while reading gossip on their sister site popsugar.com, but now I check lilsugar first. Its a great site for stories, products, and kid-related news articles.
parentdish.com - Similar to lilsugar, but parentdish extends to older kids and has great tips like games to play, recipes etc.
dinnerwithjulie.com - Julie doesn't offer parenting advice. What she does do is share a slice of her life, as a busy mom, journalist, cook and radio personality. Her recipes are deliciously approachable and her blog feels like your having a conversation with a neighbour or old school friend.
Lastly, I suggest Twitter. Yup, I'm on it. You can find me @shosized. If I can do it, so can you. Its a great way to catch up on the world in a few minutes. I follow a number of savvy moms, businesspeople, and locals, and hear about everything from closed LRT stations to the latest restaurant opening.
