This Friday is our long anticipated second Community Sitewarming on Twitter. In order to give back to those bloggers who are so supportive of the Sitewarming community, once every month to six weeks I will choose several blogs to highlight in a free for everyone community event.
Please visit the following six blogs and join us…
Friday, October 16th from 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. eastern on Twitter. Tweet with the hashtag #community and be sure to follow @slpowell, who will cover in the event that my flight returning from Blogworld Expo is delayed!
The Untrained Housewife:
About the Author – Angela England is a Renaissance Woman who is a professional writer, blogger, licensed massage therapist and CAPPA-trained labor support doula and childbirth educator. She lives in southeast Oklahoma with her husband and their three kids, with Baby Blessing #4 expected this May.
About the Site – The Untrained Housewife is a place to regather the lost knowledge. Mothers and grandmothers used to teach their children how to manage a home and the skill necessary to do so – something that seems to have skipped a generation. Or two. Join the community of contributors, or stop by the forum to as a question, check out a recipe or just say hi!

About the Author – Amy Mascott is a former high school English teacher, current Reading Specialist, tutor for students K-12 in the evenings when her elementary school assistant-principal husband is home not to mention a mother of 3 incredible, funny, smart, and totally awesome kiddos, each 20 mos apart; a lover of sushi, Yuengling, and pilates; a traveler, a (try-to-be) cook, a reader, a runner, and a mini-van driver; a grammar nut, an early-morning walker, a coffee drinker; a person who– for the last 5 years–falls asleep the minute a movie begins and still cannot believe she’s a mother, in her 30’s, living in the suburbs of DC. (and she’s also an incredible blogger – editor’s note)
About the Site – The goal of teachmama.com is to empower parents by providing them with simple tools and resources they can use to be the best teachers they can be for their children.
After a few of my friends–who do not have backgrounds in education–asked me repeatedly for ideas and worthwhile activities that they could do with their children to help them learn a little while they played, the idea hit me. I gave them some of the things that I was doing with my kiddos and the children I tutored, and finally I began to share it online. I never imagined I’d be a blogger, but it did force me into learning resourcefulmommy speak (seriously!!) and into helping some pals at the same time.

Musings From Me:
About the Author: Jill is a writer who stays at home or a SAHM who writes…it depends on the day! Mom of a kid, a preteen, and a teen…living to write about it. When not posting at http://www.musingsfromme.com/, she writes about preteens here: http://www.typeamom.net/mom-stages/preteens.html and about raising a kid, a preteen, and a teen in the D.C. area here: http://www.dcmetromoms.com/jill/. She loves sharing products/events that she loves with my readers.
About the Site: My site is a place for me to vent, complain, praise, extol, muse, ponder any and everything that interests me. My site traffic is increasing, but a sitewarming would give me some much-needed recognition. I know I have something to say, but the problem for me is getting the word out about my site.
