Monster Likes #1 – 2012

It’s the weekend and you know what that means…it’s time for Monster Likes! What’s Monster Likes? I list my favorite selection of posts I found throughout bloggy land over the past week.

If one of your posts is listed below and you want the badge, just shoot me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll send you the badge to put on your post!

And now on to the good stuff….
Gigi over at KludgyMom gives us a list of Top Bloggers To Watch In 2012, and she picked a lot of good ones!

I love Ilana over at Mommy Shorts, and next year I’m stealing 15 New Year’s Resolutions My 2yo Should Make from her…hell, I might still do it this year!

I love Funny or Snot, and Poppy’s PTSD post is EXACTLY why I loved her from the moment I started reading her…even if this happened to me, I don’t think I would share it!

If you’ve heard of Pinterest but have no idea what it is or why it can help drive traffic to your site, check out Mashable Social Media’s Pinterest: A Beginner’s Guide.

Over at Dad or Alive, there is a heartbreaking story about losing a child too early…it was hard to read, but a must read. Read 1 Year. 1 Month. 1 Day. and if you need anymore reasons to pay attention while you are driving, you can read my post about the 21 year old girl who was on her cell phone and flipped her car in front of our house. She walked away, unlike Olivia.

  1. I would like to add that my new years resolutions will be a different way of parenting. It is not that the old way didn`t work, but more as just that my twins are good kids, so I can allow myself of giving them more "treats". Aviran Cohen recently posted..בניית אתריםMy Profile
